Margaret Minnicks has been an online writer for many years. She researches and shares remedies for using certain products for illnesses.

Steve Harvey, whose real name is Broderick Stephen Harvey, is a television host, radio personality, producer, actor, comedian and author of several books. His recent book, Jump: Take the Leap of Faith to Achieve Your Life of Abundance was released on December 5, 2016.

The 61-year-old author adds this book to several he has written in the past, but readers say this latest book is quite different from his previously published books.

What Steve Harvey's Book is About

Harvey gives practical advice on how to help make dreams come true in his book, Jump: Take the Leap of Faith to Achieve Your Life of Abundance. He says everything people need to live the abundant life is inside of them. They must know how to engage that the God-given power that they already have.

Harvey explains how he used his faith to overcome many struggles, and he says anyone can do the same. He believes when a vision enters a person's mind, the ability to make it a reality is also there. The writer shows readers how they can achieve anything. He suggests using three things for visions to become a reality.

  1. Use imagination.
  2. Use faith.
  3. Work hard.
