NEW YORK — Lakewood Church Pastor and New York Times best-selling author Joel Osteen and his family told thousands of New Yorkers who attended his Night of Hope event at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn on Friday that they are “pregnant with possibility” and shouldn’t abandon their dreams.

Osteen, along with his wife, Victoria, and mother, Dolores, shared testimonies about how they endured harsh trials — yet emerged from their ordeals feeling blessed — as the crowd eagerly listened.

Dolores testified of her battle with cancer in 1981 when she was given just two weeks to live. Despite the initial diagnosis, she continued to believe that God would heal her, and instead of being bitter, she chose to use her remaining time to forgive those who hurt her and to ask forgiveness of those whom she hurt.
