The Pieces of My Heart Synopsis

 

Imagine a heart that has been shattered into pieces, broken, and unable to beat due to years of anger, pain, and despair. Biologically, the heart is constructed of four chambers. For my heart, those chambers hold pain, confusion, the inability to forgive, and so many questions of who I am and what my purpose is in life. Struggles with forgiveness, patience, love, and knowing one’s purpose are only a glimpse of what the heart entails. These struggles are powerful and can break your heart into pieces or fuse it together with a strength that can persevere through any challenge that your heart may face. 

If you are dealing with issues in your heart and have finally decided to take the first step to pick up and put together its pieces, then you are ready for the journey. Although your heartbeat is what lets you know that you are still living, you can only experience life if your heart is in harmony with your mind, body, and spirit. The Pieces of My Heart wants to offer that connection and allow you to look within yourself to reflect, transform, and self-motivate. My hope is that you may continue your journey and live life the way it was designed just for you. 

 

Readers' Reviews 

 

I love how you touched on EVERYTHING - literally everything we go through was captured in this book. But yet, you managed to keep it concise and to the point. I love how you kept it relatable, with examples and questions we've asked ourselves in our lifetime. Breaking up the "heart" into its four chambers was a nice touch. I feel like when I'm going through something and need a reminder, I can easily navigate to the exact chapter I need to get a refresher. This is so inspiring! Thank you for granting me the privilege to read. I will be ordering a couple of copies when available and REALLY looking forward to the POMH workbook. Every woman needs this!

The Pieces Of My Heart is a soul stirring revelation of what it means to see yourself for who you truly are as opposed the ‘you’ that life has tried to dictate. It’s gallantly honest and evokes raw emotions that most of us spend a good deal of our lives trying to ignore.

The transparency of Keisha J. is inspiring. She shares her heart, baring her soul as she recounts feelings of inadequacy on the faith filled road to triumph, urging readers to “Turn up the positive until it drowns out those negative sounds, and travel to an open road of possibilities that will ultimately lead you to your destiny.”

Pieces Of My Heart is therapeutic. It’s healing. It’s truth.  It is for every woman that has ever questioned her self-worth, doubted her abilities, struggled to forgive, or ignored the grace of her smile.
