Live, Love Lead - A Book about Hillsong's Brian Houston Review

  I received this book for review, Live, Love, Lead about the life of Hillsong's Brian Houston.  Renowned pastor Brian Houston shares his insights on the key to meaningful leadership from his own life-tested experiences. The powerful biblical truths he’s learned will enable you to live fully, love completely, and lead boldly—the hallmarks of Jesus’ time on earth. 
  This book takes you through Brian's life as he begins his journey, the son of a preacher, he himself grows up and surrenders to preach.  Brian also meets, Bobbi, whom he will eventually marry.  Through their talks they know their lives  will  always be lead by love and God.  Brian has a dream to build a huge church to reach  God's people.  And, this does happen, Hillsong church is one of the largest churches in the world and there  is also  a gospel group who calls themselves, Hillsong.  Listen below to what Taya Smith has to say about Brian Houston:

  I loved how Brian has always believed we have to let God lead us through our lives. No matter what the situation.  I could really touch base with Brian when he lost his father.  I recently lost my daughter in November and some of the words that Brian wrote, definitely helped me understand grief and suffering.  Here are a few words he used:

"One of our biggest problems may be when we get stuck in our pain, when we can't seem to find the strength to get back on our feet, and continue our journey. Life is a difficult path, but it keeps going. If we stop to long because we are in pain then we will miss out on what God wants to do in our lives."

"We have a savior who not only knows what it means to suffer, but who willingly gave himself as a sacrifice in our place."

  These words opened my eyes and I felt God telling me that I would never fully understand why I lost my daughter and that God totally understood my pain, but I have to go on to see what he has in store for my life.

  I loved this book! Brian Houston has definitely dedicated himself and his life to let God live and love in his life, but to also lead it as well.  He has let God lead him to build one of the biggest churches ever and more are continually being built.  Many souls have been saved by Brian's words from God in these churches and the gospel group Hillsong has also touched many lives as well.

  I recommend everyone reading Brian Houston's book.  If you are a minister, church leader or anyone who needs led to Christ, then this is your book.  It will show you how and why we need God to lead our lives or it will never work.  Listen to some of these people and their tetestimonies:

  I agree with the man in this video who says what he likes about this book is Brian is real.  He sure is and as he tells how he began with a small church, in a warehouse, with only 40 people, he still envisioned a bigger, church with many, many more people.  We must all look toward to the future, with God's lead, we can have God desires us to have.  So. pick up Live, Love,Lead by Brian Houston.  You will not be disappointed, I promise.
