I Picked Up This Book Because: I like Tyler Perry. I am endlessly curious about the life journeys of others so why not read this.
Part memoir, part inspiration, part spiritual study guide. Tyler shares his story largely using the metaphor of a tree. He speaks of his roots, his branches and leaves. He speaks of his tough life growing, his close relationship with his mother and Aunt Mae. He seeks to tell these stories not solely for entertainment but so others can understand that you can not let your past direct your future. Life is a series of moments to grow and he offers tools in the form of bible verse to help facilitate that growth.
I listened to this in audiobook form but I think I would suggest it in paper form. There are several passages that are given that I would want to reflect on, study, do and then come back a reread the passage.
Overall I found the book interesting however I did find my thoughts drifting every now and again.
