Joel Osteen in Atlanta Friday for booksignings

Pastor Joel Osteen, a New York Times bestselling author, televangelist and senior pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, will be in Atlanta Oct 3 for two booksignings for his book, ” You Can, You Will: 8 Undeniable Qualities of a Winner.”

In the book, Osteen describes the eight characteristics that are common to people who achieve their goals and attain the highest level of success.

“As you put these principles into action you will step into a new level of your destiny,” writes Osteen. “You will discover talents you didn’t know you had, and you will see God’s blessing and favor in amazing ways.”

At noon, he will be at the Barnes & Noble, 1217 Caroline Street off Moreland Avenue; and at 7 p.m. he will be at the Walmart store, 1400 Hudson Bridge Road in Stockbridge.
