Yolanda Adams: Discover a Life of Joy and Purpose

Yolanda Adams often sings about faith, love and forgiveness, but instead of belting out the gospel message in song for her latest release, she writes about it in her first book, Points of Power: Discover a Spirit-Filled Life of Joy and Purpose.

Grammy Award-winning gospel artist Adams encourages readers with spiritual truths and personal anecdotes, challenging them to take hold of the same contagious joy she discovered during a painful divorce and other experiences.

"As a Christian, I want more than ever to show others the power of God's love," she writes. "You don't do that by badgering people; you do it by being a good example."

Much of Adams' message is drawn from the Points of Power segment of her widely syndicated radio program The Yolanda Adams Morning Show. The freshman author discusses nearly 40 points that compel readers to overcome hardships, sadness, disappointment and other joy killers. read more

Make Your Weight-Loss Goals a Reality

Best-selling author Dr. Don Colbert says when it comes to losing weight, people fight against their own brain and body chemistry. This conflict prevents them from shedding the pounds and keeping them off.

In his new book, Dr. Colbert's "I Can Do This" Diet, he offers a lifestyle plan that works with the body and enables those who follow it to lose excess weight and keep it off. 

Colbert addresses all the factors that affect weight—emotions, behavior, mental state, diet, hormones, body chemicals and lifestyle. In addition, he offers an interactive survey at thecandodiet.com to help individuals identify what is preventing them from losing weight.

"As a medical doctor, I deal every day with getting results—verifiable results—that prove a patient is on his way to long-term health, not just fixing an immediate problem," Colbert explains. "And that is what this book is about." 

The Buzz offers an excerpt from Dr. Colbert's "I can Do This" Diet. (Click here to purchase this book.)

You Have a Choice

Dieting has a way of turning life into a roller-coaster ride. You lose weight only to gain it back—or you gain even more weight—and after a while it becomes difficult to find yet another reason why you should even bother. In more than 25 years of practicing medicine, I have met countless former dieters stuck in this self-defeating mental attitude, and it was sabotaging whatever hope they once had of losing weight. read more
