How do you find your way through the broken pieces and the pain to peace? In this searingly honest and searching book, the New York Times bestselling author Iyanla Vanzant recounts the last decade of her profoundly human journey. Although Ilyanla had become an overnight nationwide success, few knew that her world was crumbling around her.
Part metaphorical teaching story, part wrenching personal chronicle, this phoenix-rising-from-the-ashes tale is about men and money, love and work, mothers and daughters, and life and death. Her husband wanted out of their fairy-tale marriage. Her meteoric rise uncovered a debilitating personal lie. Her daughter was diagnosed with colon cancer. The only thing that sustained her was her commitment to know and serve God.
Iyanla's journey from being broken, damaged, and desperate offered her new found knowledge that you can implement whatever your personal situation. Discover why everything you need to learn is reflected in your relationships. Gain a new understanding of the patterns and pathologies that families unconsciously pass down through the generations - until someone finally breaks through. Learn how to put your personal puzzle together, and dare to claim the peace that you truly deserve.
