    The Book That Started It All

    This is a classic. You will love Iyanla for this one too. I'd also recommend that you buy "When God Stopped Keeping Score," which looks at the power of God and forgiveness. Take the time to read that book too and share it with someone that you love as well. It is a must read for your soul.

    Highly Recommended!!! Everyone must read

    I have felt unfulfilled spiritually by monotonous church rules and regulations. I felt the rules distracted me from the ultimate goal, an intimate connection with God. This book opened my mind up to other possibilities in the way I show reverence and worship God. Thanks Iyanla for a new perspective.
