Publisher's Summary

Is it the job you hate but need in order to pay the rent? Is it that relationship that you gave your all to only to end up with a broken heart...again? Perhaps it's your children, a family member, or a life-long friend doing you in, dragging you down, pushing you to the brink. If you are an honorary member of the Black Woman's Suffering Society, you have probably been told that it's all your fault. Or that struggling and suffering is your lot in life. Iyanla Vanzant says, "No!" Life is an act of faith and suffering is optional! Those everyday challenges, obstacles, and dilemmas are what Iyanla calls "valleys". As bad as they may seem, there is a purpose or, as Iyanla says, "There is so much value in the valley".If you've ever been disappointed, betrayed, rejected, abandoned, or just plain old scared to let go, then you've been or may still be in a valley. Iyanla knows; she's been there, and on a bad day, she's still there, but now she shares the way out with you.
