Peace from Broken Pieces ~ Iyanla Vanzant

This is the true life story of Iyanla, the women that was once a monthly feature on Oprah to staring in the show Starting Over (helping women change their lives). I starting this book and finished it in 2 days, I couldn't put it down. Iyanla is so honest of her life story and how she has overcome the mistakes she has made in her life. She is not shy to tell of the violence in her childhood and her adult life, teen pregnancy, bankruptcy, cancer, protecting your children and much more. She does not pull any punches in this book, she tells it exactly how it was and is today. She teaches through her heartache of how to look ahead and see how your life is and how you can also work on yourself.

I enjoyed this book tremendously and think all women should treat themselves to this story. It is a great blessing that Iyanla shared her story with all those that are willing to stop and take the time to read.
