One thought on “Peace from Broken Pieces: How to Get Through What You're Going Through

  1. Latiffany

    Perhaps I am in the wrong mental state to fully appreciate this book, but I thought it was awful I appreciate how honest Vanzant is about her life and the scenes surrounding her daughter s death brought me to tears The rest of the book just seemed like a never ending saga of drama and Vanzant playing the victim We all have flaws and the bible is filled with flawed characters that God used to teach and lead his people, but some of Vanzant s flaws are quite scary considering her age and experience [...]

  2. Helena

    I remember reading Ayelet Waldman s GOOD BAD MOTHER and being in complete and utter awe of her honesty In my view, she made a slow, naked walk in public look easy I had a similar experience while listening to PEACE FROM BROKEN PIECES in the sense that Vanzant also translates harrowing life experiences into achingly honest and beautiful prose but she takes it further Vanzant has clearly spent the time to distill the lessons of her life and how to consciously try to make different choices, or as s [...]

  3. Richard

    Kind of like a follow up to Yesterday, I Cried, where the author uses her personal experiences to impart wisdom to her readers I m a huge Iyanla fan, and this was a good book I m just really sorry she had to go through so much unpleasantness and upheaval in her personal life She is searingly honest about it The book is cleverly structured it s really an examination of the experience and impact of the death of her daughter to cancer, but the first half is like a prologue laying the foundation so [...]

  4. Kathleen Smith

    Oh, how I wanted to love this book Because ever since Starting Over, I have loved Iyanla Vanzant With in the pages there are some pearls of wisdom But as a memior, I felt as if I had been dragged through depression and disfuntion I try really hard to not stay in my story We all have stories and the longer we stay in them the worse life seemsIt happened there is nothing we can do.I love the saying Let Go or Be Dragged.Let go you lovely loving wonderful ladyIf you were here I would hug you

    The first time I saw Iyanla Vanzant she appeared on Oprah during the Farewell Season She was very interesting to me and I immediately placed on my to read list her book Peace from Broken Pieces.I have never heard of Iyanla, nor have I read any of her books.After reading Peace from Broken Pieces I cannot imagine turning to her to read a book about really anything While I was interested in her life story, I felt she was disorganized in the presentation to the reader I had to wade through a lot of [...]

  6. Lisa

    I saw Iyanla on Oprah and immediately ordered her book on my Kindle and basically could not put it down until I was done She is such a powerful person to listen to, the things she said on Oprah just made me go, Ah ha all over the place Her book was very good, one of the most candid and absolutely raw memoirs I have ever read This woman lays it ALL out there, she is so blatantly honest about every single moment in her life, but it s not just about that This book is so much She gives us little le [...]

    I am so Blessed to have found this book, I started crying the first 5 chapters I lived in the projects and was on welfare, only for 9 mos but I still felt the pains of a system that showed you rejection at every turn I have gone through some of the same tragedies as a child My mother is mentally disabled, my father was murdered when I was 12 I was raised by an abusive grandmother, where my little sister was the welcomed child and I was the child that got punished for everything, beating with ext [...]

  8. Valerie

    Ms Vanzant mentions that this is her story It takes us through her darkest days, triumphs, downfalls and her road to personal growth and healing It is not a direct self help book The book offers the reader spiritual encouragement based on her life experiences which she goes into in admirable detail, with prayers and quotes along the way in hopes of bringing awareness to our own spirituality My favorite quote from the book is I ve learned we all get exactly what we need, when we need it,in order [...]

  9. Tiffany

    Peace from Broken Pieces is Iyanla Vanzant s journey through the darkest days of her life Her daughter Gemmia was her best friend through all of the dark days As the middle child Gemmia tried to be the perfect daughter She got good grades, never got in trouble and helped raise her brother and sister.As an adult, Gemmia continued to play her role by helping run her mother s business and becoming her best friend No matter how hard Gemmia tried to be perfect, her mother didn t really notice her Aft [...]

    In this book, Iyanla shares her tremendously tragic childhood, her many mistakes as a teen and single mother, her rise as an inspirational speaker, her fall from grace after losing her contract with the Oprah show, the disastrous day time show of her own produced by Barbara Walters, and losing her closest daughter to cancer.This memoir is interesting, but there are parts that are vague and glossed over Iyanla shares about her final failed marriage but doesn t go in depth about her first two She [...]

  11. Terri

    I saw Iyanla on Oprah s Lifeclass on OWN last week and decided to read this book after she referred to one of the concepts in it If you believe in a spiritual world beyond this earth in which souls choose their life here on earth to learn certain lessons in order to heal themselvesan you will enjoy this book I found her to be believable and her spiritual ideas and concepts to be very interesting Her life story is heartbreaking This woman has overcome so much she s a true warrior of life I fell i [...]

  12. David Jay

    Iyanlva Vanzant has written lots of wonderful stuff and I think she is an amazing teacher and speaker, but this book is a disappointing and self pitying mess I was so looking forward to this book and I very much like the memoir as self help genre but this book just failed for me There were also grammatical errors, typos and some erroneous information, like Iyanla thinks aids can be spread in a hot tub and had a big fight with her ex husband over this That was disturbing to read.Read a different [...]

  13. Joe

    I really wanted to love this book After seeing Ms Vanzant on Oprah twice last month I tore through this book For me, it s too repetitive and frustrating I found myself saying, Ok, I get it, I get it than a few times.

  14. Shelley

    I m in a book club I did not choose this book Not one for watching TV, this was my first exposure to Iyanla Vanzant I was not impressed Maybe hearing her talk on talk shows is the secret rather than reading about her life in a book, because all I got out of it is that she is a phony What she preaches to others is not how she even lives her own life Phony Why follow a supposedly expert s advice when they don t even walk that way in their own life Phony I personally don t want to take advice from [...]

    If you have ever watched Oprah Winfrey Network s Super Soul Sundays, there is one woman you just cannot miss out She is Iyanla Vanzant Apart from Iyanla Fix my life, two of her most poignant episodes were Daddyless daughters and Fatherless sons In the episodes she poignantly helps men and women without a father figure in their life and to deal with the empty space a parent leaves behind However behind the wise stories that she has today which helped and transformed thousands of lives, lie life l [...]

  16. Mary

    I see Iyanla Vanzant pouring her heart out in this book She shares with her readers the agony and pain suffered has she tried to hold on to her relationship Although she knew somethings were going on behind her back, she yet tried to survive the relationship In chapter 2 Walking Wounded I see how hurts from her childhood has now followed her into adulthood Now she sees herself doing some of the same things she saw or heard that her mother did.Talking about the need to break generational curses I [...]

    Peace from Broken Pieces is a book that I needed to read at this particular point in my life Iyanla Vanzant shares a very personal story about her life in this book She uses her skill as a spiritual teacher to help the reader navigate through difficult times in a positive manner.Iyanla shares some very life shattering events in this book Her daughter s death, her divorce from her husband, the details around relationship with Oprah, her television show and the forclosure on her home As you make t [...]

  18. Mary

    Iyanla is one of those women who puts my life into perspective We have had very similar paths I ve had multiple marriages, lost my entire life savings,my home, BUT I have never sat with my adult child and watched him die Kuddos to her for the strength she gives to us in her ability to write about this and rebound with such courage and hope Blessings to Iyanla and those who supported her during that gut wrenching, life altering time God will NOT put on our plates than we can handle even when we [...]

    Iyanla is an amazing and inspiring woman I had always wondered what had happened to her I loved her books in the late 90s early 2000s, and had always hoped she would start writing again This book did not disappoint Iyanla reveals her story in an incredibly raw, honest, authentic fashion She really shares her journey with readers even the painful and very difficult aspects of it I found myself crying at several points in this book, and feeling a lot of compassion and respect for Iyanla Through it [...]

  20. Chris

    After becoming a multimillionaire, having her own television talk show, and writing a number of best sellers, Iyanla One day, as I sat helplessly surveying the broken pieces of my mind, heart, and life, I recognized that a broken life is a test of faith of the highest order I like the book, but it was heartbreaking to read about the avoidable and unavoidable tragedies that Iyanla endured simultaneously Her healing journey financially, psychologically, and spiritually was not easy but is inspirin [...]

  21. Lucas

    This book is a solid read if you re an Iyanla fan, but the book drags in the last third Yesterday, I Cried made an impression on me in the 90s, and this feels like a Where Are They Now update to that book that runs a bit long That said, there s inspiration, revelation, and lots to learn from Iyanla s journey I think there s something powerful about getting to the top and realizing there s nothing there

  22. Romana

    I wanted to love this book I wanted this book to teach me how to get through what you re going through as the title suggests I wanted to get lessons I got nothing of what I wanted So the question is, did I want the right things How can I learn from someone who constantly bemoans her status in life How can I learn from her own broken pieces when she doesn t mend her own Thoroughly disappointed.

  23. Linnet

    Excellent book I have a whole new respect for Iyanla Vanzant So happy she shared her story and explains why she s so good at what she does Anyone who s going through a valley in their life can relate to this book and see just how people we revere have moments of doubt, sincerity and how they work through those valleys trusting and believing in God that He will bring you through.

  24. Ms. Alford

    This is a great book so far It tells the story of how a woman went from being poor and a teen mother, to being a famous and inspirational speaker She is truly a great writer

  25. Melissa Declet

    I absolutely loved this book It brought me tears in my eyes multiple times Iyanla is a powerful strong woman I am in awe after reading her story Please read this book, it will change your life.

  26. Rebecca

    Wow Iyanla has gone through a lot, both before and after her fame This is an introspective biography The moral is you keep on keeping and and learn all you can from all that life brings you.

  27. Andrea Ward

    Happy Friday This good was a very good read for me It explained why Iyanla had been out of the limelight I had seen her a few years ago during a town hall seminar that Tavis Smiley used to host Iyanla mentioned some of these challenges experiences in her life, however, I was disconnected to her experience because I had not heard or read about them The author s perspective in this book read like a cause effect principle If I would do this, then that would happen, but can everything in life be sur [...]
