Peace From Broken Pieces: How to Get Through What You are Going Through by Iyanla Vanzant tells the spiritual, emotional, professional and personal journey of author and Maryland resident, Iyanla Vanzant. In this book, Ms. Vanzant takes us through the raw emotions of abuse, divorce, death, success, disppoinment and the process of rebuilding. Her writing style is both engaging and probing. Before you realize it, you find yourself mirroring her journey as it relates to your life.
Author, Priestess, Coach, TV Host, Teacher Vanzant takes readers on a journey that really spans back generations and across the lives of many of the people to whom she has been connected over the last decade. It also takes you through the religions and rituals of many cultures, and reveals that, as diverse as people are, at our core we all share the desire to be whole and in alignment with the circumstaces that comprise our lives. One of the quotes in the book that truly illustrates how the perpsective in which you view what happens in your life, can drastically affect they way you come through it.
I now realize that lives fall apart when they need to be rebuilt. Lives fall apart when the foundation upon which they were built needs to be relaid. Lives fall apart, not because God is punishing us for what we have or have not done. Lives fall apart because they need to. They need to because they weren’t built the right way in the first place.
Iyanla Vanzant is the founder and executive director of Inner Visions International and the Inner Visions Institute for Spiritual Development. The author of five New York Times bestsellers and the Inner Visions CD Series—and the former host of the television series Iyanla and co-host of the NBC daytime reality show Starting Over.
Ms. Vanzant recently appeared on Oprah, to share some of the details of their interaction over the past 10 years and the part it played in her process of rebuilding her life.
