There were also grammatical errors, typos and some erroneous information, like Iyanla thinks aids can be spread in a hot tub and had a big fight with her ex husband over this.

It’s also pretty odd to me that she would publish a memoir without including the motivations behind her current career and how she specifically got started in the business. This book centered around Iyanla’s and Gemma’s lives. Hearing Iyanla share her story added to the beauty.

Freedom in the Valley l have been a pseudo fan of Iyanla for some time and had misgivings about what she stood for. Peace from Broken Pieces by Iyanla Vanzant.

This journey will teach you how to understand and deal with the pathologies of our lives. In Peace From Broken Pieces New York Times best-selling author Iyanla Vanzant she recounts the last decade of her life and the spiritual lessons learnedfrom the price of success during her meteoric rise as a TV celebrity on Oprah, the Iyanla TV show produced by Barbara Waltersto the dissolution of her marriage and her daughters 15 months of illness and death on Christmas day.

This is a book about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of disappointment, failure and heartbreak gives us the power to write a daring new ending.

Sh In this book, Iyanla shares her tremendously tragic childhood, her many mistakes as a teen and single mother, her rise as an inspirational speaker, her fall from grace after losing her contract with the Oprah show, the disastrous day time show of her own produced by Barbara Walters, and losing her closest daughter to cancer.

Daddyless daughters and Fatherless sons. Delivering inner peace where fear and pain once prevailed, fromm universal message is unsurpassed in its power to heal. Her iyanlx, as always, conveys an emotion and faith that simply would not come across in writing.


My favorite quote from the book is “I’ve learned we all get exactly what we need, when we need it,in order to learn what God intends for us to know so we can be who God intends for us to be”. I have been told her by friends that she is a wonderful inspirational speaker in helping broken relationships, but how can you give advice when you don’t have the same skills in your own relationships with your parents, husbands, or children?

I found myself saying, “Ok, I get it, I get it” more than a few times. If you believe in a spiritual world beyond this earth in which souls choose their life here on earth to learn certain lessons in order to heal themselves I am cheering Iyanla on because she had beat herself up enough in her lifetime.

A woman who was the sun in my sky. Honest, heart breaking amazing book. I see how hurts from her childhood has now followed her into adulthood.

I have broken the cycle in every way. There comes a point when you have to say what happened in the past was in the past, it’s time to move on and make a change. No it was the type of book that one would want to savior and digust a little at a time, to have listend to it in one sitting would have been like running through Iyanla’s life, it would have been almost disrespectful to have listend to in one session.

Iyanla welcomed us into her past, and present experiences.
