Summary

Acts Of Faith is a thoughtful and inspirational work that explores, with great insight and sensitivity, the unique pressures on people of color today. This program confronts the four basic areas that create stress and imbalance for people of color: relationships with ourselves, with the world, with each other, and with money. No matter who you are or where you are in any of these areas, Iyanla Vanzant tells you that you can make changes, realize improvement, and eliminate stress in all of your relationships.

ShellBell - London. Loved it!

I listened to this book on the train as I went to work. Iyanla's voice is so comforting! Her words are powerful, they reached the core of my soul. Although, the deepness and truth of what she was saying made me feel uncomfortable at times. The explanations she gives and the way she reads - soothes. Once the book came to an end, I was sad! LOL! My only negative is: Too short! A beautiful book to inspire and encourage.👌🏾👍 The music and drums webeautiful!😍

Inspirational and concise

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, in order to get a perspective from other, "people of color".

What was one of the most memorable moments of Acts of Faith?

Listening to the advice, "I'm outta here" in relation to bad situations.

What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

I liked the narrators encouraging tone of voice.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

I found the topics to be a bit advanced and I would have benefited from more detailed explanations.

I've listened to it many times since my purchase!

The narration was great, the meditations were so relevant it was shocking, and the pace and the music kept it interesting!
