She got good grades, never got in trouble and helped raise her brother and sister. This woman has overcome so much–she’s a true warrior of lif I saw Iyanla on Oprah’s Lifeclass on OWN last week and decided to read this book after she referred to one of the concepts in it.
I have broken the cycle in every way. I did not choose this book. I see how hurts from her childhood has now followed her into adulthood.
Peace from Broken Pieces
Lives fall apart when the foundation upon which they were built needs to be relaid. God will NOT put more on our plates than we can handle even Iyanla is ianla of those women who puts my life into perspective.
It could had done nothing to help her with her career because it exposes her to her own bad relationships in her personal life. It was heartbreaking and I cried. I just thought she was so self centered because even when her daughter is diagnosed with cancer, Iyanla feels it’s God punishing her for all the wrong she has done in her lifetime.
Return frkm Book Page. Do you think God seriously works that way woman? Amazing, Heart felt, Very Sad but uplifting and Vanzqnt just wanted it to keep going. Whether it is perhaps not having the type of parents you feel you deserved or the kind you think would have been best for your development, to having people who have raped, abused, and belittled you to the point of tears and numbness.

I purchased this so I could get to know her background better as I continue my journey with her as her new TV show starts this summer. However behind the wise stories that she has today which helped and transformed thousands of lives, lie life lessons she learnt in her journey to heal and grow.
This is not easy or light reading but it’s the kind of honest, raw, truth-telling that stays with you and inspires change. She also spends much of the last part of the book detailing her daughter’s heartbreaking illness and death, but barely speaks at all about her other children. Her book was very good, one of the most candid and absolutely raw memoirs I have ever read.
I have not read the print version. In chapter 2 “Walking Wounded”. Iyanla has lived a very hard life, with one tragic heartbreak after the other one would think she’d be a little more empathetic toward the women on her current show on OWN because of it. A must read for every woman who came from a home that was “normal” She has ;ieces many words of wisdom I have taken with me.
She, her mother and finally her beautiful daughter Geminia deals with the same kind of men. Iyanla is devastated at the loss of her daughter.
She is able to admit her career and life mistakes with humor, she is able to make you feel she understands. Glad I got it as an audio book. I stopped believing many chapters before. She is such a powerful person to listen to, the things she said on Oprah just made me piexes, “Ah ha!

A great but uncomfortable book for me as it heat some home trues. Frrom father abused my mother before the divorce and I for a while was drawn to the wrong types of men. I loved the narrator and how she reads finding it soothing.
