Tell us the Good Stuff!
The Book "The Day My Soul Cried" is FREE on Amazon's Kindle for a Limited Time
Yvonne Pierre’s journey from the depths of despair to an awakening of soul and spirit, has been a long and difficult one.
From sexual abuse, excessive drinking, failing in school, having a child while still a teenager, unable to get a job, having a second child with Down syndrome, gaining excessive weight and allowing herself to no longer care about how she looked – the painful pattern of all types of abuse seemed endless. Until one day, when Yvonne’s soul cried. She began to see that how she perceived her life and the attitudes she had, were crippling her as much as all her bad habits and the ugly things that happened to her. The realization that through forgiveness of others and most importantly, herself, would prove to be her path to new confidence, new attitude, a joy and love of life and God, and a profound hope that by sharing her story, others may find the courage and strength to do what Yvonne has done.
A FEW REVIEWS:
Review by Rebecca Greene: "Excellent Testimony! This woman has been through some things that probably would have had me curled up in a ball and crying for the rest of my very life but I found myself rooting for her and not being able to turn away from this book (literally) until I finished, knowing that she had overcome every obstacle. Very inspirational and motivating! Wish it were longer..."
Review by Susan: "The author is honest and takes responsibility for her life. Encouraging and hopeful. This is I know I can book. The past is the past. It effects us all but loving ourselves gives us the power to overcome and to fly. Thank you for the hope."
Review by J.J. Brown: "In "The Day My Soul Cried" Yvonne Pierre shares a memoir that reads like a song from the heart. The author shares her experiences as a child growing up and as a young adult, leading the reader from tragedy through awakening to joy. Yvonne Pierre has now created support for parents of children with special needs, which is how I met her, through her "Have Ya Heard" radio. I'm so grateful she shared her story with us, and highly recommend it for anyone who is trying to overcome difficult times and find a light in the darkness. She will inspire you."
Review by Divas Read 2 Book Club, Diva Reviewer - Lolita Allen: "The Day My Soul Cried is an inspirational message of life's trials and tribulations. We all have our own personal skeletons and burdens, but when you read someone else's story of how they overcame and survived, it can only make you stronger. This was a wonderful memoir that truly touches the soul."
