Joel Osteen explains the power of daily positive affirmations, discusses his church's position on homosexuality

From his television sermons that reach millions across the country, to his podcasts and his bestselling books, Joel Osteen is trying to bring his ministry to homes around the world.

Osteen is one of the most recognizable faces of Christianity in America today and he's recently added a new book to his repertoire, "I Declare: 31 Promises to Speak Over Your Life."

In the book, Osteen lists a declaration a day for 31 days to help the reader set the tone for his/her day and explore his/her personal relationship with God.

Osteen sits down with Soledad O'Brien and the "Starting Point" team today to explain why he thinks that daily affirmations can have a positive affect on people's lives. The pastor also discusses the church's position on homosexuality.
