Author of seventeen titles; six-time New York Times bestselling author; four-time NAACP Image Award recipient; three-time Gracie Award winner, three-time Honorary Degree recipient, are not the best ways to describe Iyanla Vanzant. Mother, grandmother, good girlfriend, wise-woman, life coach, spiritual teacher, soul technician, attorney, and “the fixer” are better but still, not quite right. Minister, prayer warrior, servant, cultural custodian and student of life are the words she would use because this captures the presence of her being and the essence of her soul.
Rev. Dr. Iyanla Vanzant, author and internationally renowned speaker in the fields of personal development and spiritual empowerment is best known for her riveting work as the host of Iyanla Fix My Life on the OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network).
