Product Description

From Amazon

This book of 365 daily devotionals supports the time-honoured adage, "Why put off until tomorrow what you can do today?" The charismatic spiritual leader Iyanla Vanzant knows how easy it is to stay stuck in "old sentiments, resentments, beliefs, decisions, agreements, judgments, and ideas that may have become habitual". Through these devotions Vanzant hopes to show readers that the easiest way to create change is to simply shift your attitude--today. "We often work so hard to get the things we want that we miss the fact that it is the landscape of the inner world that stands between us and true happiness".

In the closing paragraph of each one-page devotional Vanzant names an old way of thinking and offers readers a new attitude to try on "just for today". For example, Vanzant writes, "Until today, you may have believed that you had to stay in the painful hole of hurt caused by the loss of a loved one. Just for today, make a conscious effort and choice to cover the hole and move on." Some might consider these devotions a fancy term for affirmations. Vanzant scoffs at the notion. Time spent in devotion is not a "New Age trick through which you can impose your will on God, the universe, or those around you", she writes. "Devotion is the reverent, personal act of surrendering your will to the Divine will". --Gail Hudson --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Sometimes, it takes me a while to really get to what this lady is trying to say, but I have to say that with this book, I caught what she was telling on the first try of this book. I will not say that I agree with everything she tells me. Nope I don't. And that is my opinion, but I thank God that she is out there trying to heal people. To be real, we need it. So, in essence, I say get it, you won't be disappointed, and perhaps you will catch something from the first time you read it as I have.

I am writing this review, in the hopes that Iyanla herself may read this. Last year, my daughter started a book club, and chose this book. We began with eleven, and at the end it was only four faithful members, which was alright. When Iyanla came to the Convention Center, in Philadelphia we well fortunate to hear her speak,we enjoyed her emensely. Anyway, the first couple of month, we struggled with the consistency, understanding, and the meaning. Suddenly the light bulb came on,we became persistent, steadfast in our reading,meditation,and self evaluation. We were awakening to the changes God was making in our lives, inwardly, outwardly, and between eachother. The following months proved to be more spiritual, and we experienced God power in our lives. December was the most powerful of them all. At the last meeting, we all cried, cried, cried tears of joy and thanks for bringing us this far. And a thankful heart to Iyanla, for providing the tool we needed, to help get us through this past year, her book Until Today. We didn't realize it until today, that the person, who brought us together for the book club, was the person whom needed to bring closure to things in her life, which she was able to do. We all have deceided to start a journal for this year. Some of us are going to continue to read the daily devotions again. It certainly was a very spiritually growing process for all of us, we will be forever changed from this experience with eachother, we are closer now,we respect, admire, appreciate one another for the beautiful person that God made. Sincerely,
Renee Scott

Vanzant's latest book is in a day-to-day devotional format. Having devoured everything else she has written, I didn't hesitate to pick this up. Well, get ready to be smacked hard upside your head every single day.
The author seems to have the view of a seer, and every single piece is directly related to what's happening in life at exactly that moment. Each devotion ends with the phrase, "Until today..." and a statement like "you may have been feeling as if you were about to break down. Just for today, call forth the strength, courage, wisdom, insight, power and love of the spirit of life. Ask that you be guided through the next minute, hour or day to a place of peace." (January 31)
Each month has a focus - life, love, awareness, acknowledgment, acceptance forgiveness, etc. Each day's reading focuses on internal personal and spiritual growth, self-acceptance, change and producing peace in your life.
It is an excellent book for those who have thrown out all the other daily devotional books including those for "Women Who Do Too Much." I expect to wear the pages of this book out over the next years.

This was so moving for me. I am just recently out of a bad relationship, one of many. A friend shared with me a copy of this book before I bought it myself. Iyanla touches on the deepest parts of my heart, and shows me that I am not alone. Coming from a not so good childhood...and thinking as I grew up that men were always going to hurt me in the end, therefore never allowing myself to honestly open up and trust one, I have just been going through the motions of a relationship for years. Never understanding why it is that I just cant seem to find "happiness". And she, very vividly, explains that we all have a past but we can't allow it to ruin our future! And only now in retrospect, with the aid of this book showing me and allowing me to really understand, can I see that I was doing just that. If you are not sure about where to go for help, or unsure of how you can get beyond your "skeletons in the closet", like many of us, than this is definitely for you! She is helping me to find myself all over again from the inside out....Healing the mind, body and soul.

I was first introduced to Iyanla Vanzant's book thru a friend of mine. She was reading "In the Meantime". When we would hang out she would read me excerpts from the book. One day surfing thru the web I came to amazon.com and decided to see what books were out by MS. Vanzant. I started to read the list of books and saw "Until today". I went to it and read the "look inside this book" and decided to buy it.
When the book arrived I read the preface, it was terrific. It explained about what the book was about and how to use it in your daily life.

This book is great. It has so many interesting daily readings, plus some exercises to do and think about. It helps me to be more open to my growth and spirituality. I now share with my friend some of the daily reading I find that relates to my life and my friends lives. It gives interesting information to think about and share with others.
This is a very good book. It is broken into monthly topics and beautiful passages.
