More About Yolanda Adams & Lavaille Lavette

Yolanda Adams For Gospel legend Yolanda Adams, her stirring Elektra debut Mountain High…. Valley Low was an opportunity to bring both her inspirational vision and her wide range of influences to an audience hungry for spiritual fruit. Since her 1988 debut, the acclaimed and uplifting Just As I Am , Yolanda has been wowing gospel audiences all over the world. In 1999, four studio albums and one live album later (the Grammy nominated Yolanda…. Live In Washington ), the Houston , Texas native is ready to extend her magnificent reach without watering down the message. "I'm not one of those singers who wants to expand my audience at the expense of the people who already know my music," she says determinedly. "And I've grown both vocally and spiritually since my first album, through each phase of my career. So choosing Elektra was just another step of growth. Gospel music had stepped up and gathered a myriad of influences-jazz, hip-hop, R&B. I need to be in a place where my message can be heard by everyone. I understand my purpose. I understand what I was put here for. I take that on every day of my life."

It's precisely that kind of conviction that has caused critics to refer to Yolanda as one of gospel's "seminal" voices. It has also empowered her to venture out of gospel's more sanctimonious confinements, and hook up with some of pop's most formidable producers, such as Keith Thomas, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Yolanda stresses, however, that it was the process of "sharing" talents that made the unique collaborations such a great success. Thomas produced and wrote "The Things We Do."

"I had a chance to work with him," she says, "he's worked with so many great people, like Vanessa Williams and Wynonna Judd. It was awesome. He's the kind of producer who pulls stuff out of you that you didn't know you were capable of." Yolanda also had high praise for the duo Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, who helm the ethereal "Open My Heart," "Wherever You Are," and the disc's feel-good closer, "Already Alright," all which they co-wrote with Yolanda. "Coming from the gospel world and being able to work with them was a dream come true," she says. "They provided leadership and gave me the leeway necessary to develop the songs. They wanted me to bring material to them so that I wouldn't lose connection, for non inspiration. Their input and approval really encouraged me as a writer."

Religious audiences have been validating Yolanda for well over a decade. She was employed as an elementary teacher in Houston when she first began to garner recognition for her stunning performances. "I taught second and third grades. I would go on the road during the weekends to sing. Pretty soon the demand started growing. I realized I might be able to make it my career."

Can't get into it  May 27, 2010
I purchased this book based on listening to Yolanda Adam's morning show and being so moved by the points of power segment; however, since purchasing the book, I have not been able to really get into it. I can't quite figure out if it's the delivery or what but I'm just not intrigued to read on. I picked it up and put it down about 4 times in the past week and a half and still nothing. I love the morning show but the book seems to be a total waste of my money. Now because I am a reader, and have spent my hard earned money, I will continue to try to read the book in between other good reads I entertaining. Yolanda's my girl but this one didn't capture my attention at all.
Spiritually Uplifting  May 25, 2010
The Yolanda Adams Morning Show has been a mainstay of my daily commute for a very long time now. I find Ms. Adams to be very open, sincere, uplifting and encouraging on her morning show. Her energy and inspiration are infectious and addictive. She has managed to channel all of that into her book, POINTS OF POWER: Discover the Spirit-Filled Life of Joy and Purpose.

Ms. Adams along with Lavaille Lavette has taken her daily Points of Power segment and formulated it into a book, which will become complimentary addition to any bible study or devotion. The book is divided into 10 chapters, which include faith, love, forgiveness, confession, praise, confident assurance, prayer, peace, protection and victory. Each chapter has several Points of Power, which she delves into in detail to include personal testimonies, scriptures, a prayer, and exercise questions. Each Point of Power is designed to be used as an intense self-examination of the whole self. Her points dig deep, while she encourages and inspires you to feel good as you seek where the healing is needed. No stone is left unturned and yes, she asks the tough questions.

POINTS OF POWER is arguably the best inspirational book I'll probably read all year. It now resides with me in my presence daily. Just like her radio show, this book is addictive and the highlight of my morning devotional. Her applications are practical, easy to understand and I'm sure will lead you to living a spirit-filled life of joy and purpose. If you read one inspirational book this year, let POINTS OF POWER be the one.

Yolanda Adams with Lavaille Lavette have penned a very special, encouraging, inspirational book. I loved her open and honest approach, as well as how she shared her heart and the inspirational stories. She says, "I've learned we rarely look like the destiny inside of us! God didn't see Gideon as he was, but as he could be." She talks about how God views us as opposed to how we view ourselves. Good stuff.

Some of the topics discussed in this book are the power of faith, love, forgiveness, confession, praise, prayer, peace, protection and victory, just to name a few. This book can be used in a couple of different ways:

It can be used in your devotional time to start your day with an inspirational story and how to apply the message to your life; You can just read the inspirational stories by amazing people such as Billy Graham, T.D. Jakes, Robin Roberts, Chris Gardner and many more; or You can use this book for a personal study time to help you dig deeper into the bible stories and apply God's principles to your life. Yolanda Adams provides a summary at the end of each chapter and then has questions to ask yourself and help you take a look at scripture in a new light.

I liked the fact that Yolanda had the summary, scripture passage, and the 10 Pensive Points at the end of each chapter. She really helped you to think about the story and take a closer look at the peoples lives she talked about and their situations. It was encouraging and challenging.

The personal stories and bible accounts were short, easy to understand and packed a powerful punch. She also helped you apply the passage of scripture to your life in a segment called Power Passage. These stories helped you see how God works differently in everyone's life. Yolanda also provides a prayer to give you the confidence and guidance to take the next step in your personal relationship with God.

I'm so thankful to have read and received a review copy of this book. I'll be reading this book again; there were so many gold nuggets inside these pages.

Excellent  Mar 27, 2010
Buy for yourself and as a gift for someone else. If you enjoy the Yolanda Adams Morning Show, you will definitely enjoy this book. I plan to read again and take notes. For those who enjoy applying God's principles to their life. The book is written in a format that is easy to follow. God bless Yolanda for taking the time to create this book.
Uplifting, positive and a testament to faith  Jan 26, 2010
Believe it or not, I have never heard of Yolanda Adams until I was recently given a chance to read Points of Power for review. I am very sorry I haven't experienced her before now. I understand her music is beautiful and her radio show is uplifting. She herself seems very uplifting in Points of Power. I have read through a lot of the sections and they read as short Bible readings/devotions for each full of her points of power about the specific topic. She gives points to think about and journal about if you desire to do that. But most of all her hope and belief in God shine through in each little lesson. I feel her positive vibe throughout this book and how she credits herself and her life to God. It is beautiful and uplifting to read. I look forward to continuing reading the sections and revisiting them later today when I need a pick-me-up.

Full of great lessons and thoughts, Points of Power is a wonderful book to read and enjoy.
