Publisher's Summary

New York Times 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 in their journeys to make sense out of the puzzle pieces of their lives.

My Heavens

The story telling in this gift was superb. I have found peace from my broken pieces in this wonderful masterpiece. I think being able to recognize one’s patterns is the key in unlocking the prison cell where the individual is often stashed away. So many people don’t know the real truth of why they do the things they do and what made them feel that way. They confuse the cryptic distorted messages often heard repeatedly during those traumatic experiences and mistake them as truth. Anything repeatedly heard will begin to feel like truth but it is up to you to pay attention to the one who is whispering these unfathomable messages. This is the voice that was sent to confuse you with lies. Pay attention. Break the patterns!
