Best-selling author Iyanla Vanzant recounts the last decade of her life and the spiritual lessons learned—from the price of success during her meteoric rise as a TV celebrity on Oprah, the Iyanla TV show (produced by Barbara Walters), to the dissolution of her marriage and her daughter’s 15 months of illness and death on Christmas day. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Iyanla shares why everything we need to learn is reflected in our relationships and explains the strength and wisdom she has gained by supporting others.
"A Powerful Story... but Neverending"
What is the meantime? According to author and inspirational speaker Iyanla Vanzant, being in the "meantime" means being in a state of limbo. Rather than wallow in confusion, Vanzant encourages you to use the meantime to prepare yourself for true love. The first order of business is to clean house. Room by room, Vanzant takes you through a metaphorical cleaning of the soul. This way, when love finally comes knocking on the front door, you'll have a clean house to welcome it into.
"house cleaning like never before!"
In Giving to Yourself First, the best-selling author of In the Meantime reminds us that in order to genuinely love others, we need to love ourselves more. Through a series of eloquent meditations, she teaches listeners how to cultivate self-acceptance and strengthen self-esteem, to allow them to better assist, support, and serve the people they love.
"I am being thrown a life raft"
One Day My Soul Just Opened Up is a program of inspiration and motivation that will help you work through problems and improve your emotional and spiritual health. Through her words, Iyanla provides you with the tools to tap into your strengths and make your dreams come true.
"One Day My Soul Just Opened Up: Working Toward"

"I love this book."

"Great Motivational Speech! Short & Sweet!"
Finding Faith in Difficult Times shares Vanzant's most cherished collection of the insights, prayers, and meditations she developed to work through those years of personal struggles. Here, listeners will learn how to cultivate faith and determination, build inner strength, and find lasting peace in even the most challenging moments of life.
"Like a quick therapy session"
If you are an honorary member of the Black Woman's Suffering Society, you have probably been told that it's all your fault. Or that struggling and suffering is your lot in life. Iyanla Vanzant says, "No!" Life is an act of faith and suffering is optional! Those everyday challenges, obstacles, and dilemmas are what Iyanla calls "valleys". As bad as they may seem, there is a purpose or, as Iyanla says, "There is so much value in the valley".
The prayers in Everyday I Pray, culled from Iyanla's own prayer journal, address a variety of topics and situations. It is Iyanla's hope that they will spark a light in the hearts of listeners, and that others will come to know the peace of God's grace. With this intimate collection, she invites listeners everywhere to join her in making the thoughts, words, and deeds of everyday life more reverent, honorable, and loving.
