I am an African-American women in my late 20's going through my quarter life crisis. I've decided that I would like to build a strong collection of non-fiction books that deal with love, prosperity and self growth. What are you all reading? What should I be looking for?

Faith in the Valley: Lessons for Women on the Journey to Peace by Iyanla Vanzant

Sacred Woman- Queen Afua

These first two books got me through a lot of mess.

The Mastery of Love by Don Ruiz

The Prophet - Khalil Gibran ( When I am having trouble with different issues, I refer to this book).

I actually own Sacred Woman. My boyfriend bought it for me for my birthday last year, but it intimidated me. I never got past the first few pages. I'll crack it open tonight. Thanks.

Well honestly I hadn&#39;t begin meditating yet and certain concepts were unclear to me. That&#39;s for starters. I think the commitment required scared me. Now please don&#39;t ask for specifics. I only read a few pages, but I kind of felt like I wasn&#39;t ready for it. Does that make sense? (Don&#39;t answer that if the answer&#39;s no :lol: )

Well, you dont have to do every excercise. Just read through it, even skip some pages. It talks about everything from honoring yourself, natural hair, sexuality, diet, relationships, to attitude.

OK thanks Lots. I&#39;m going to pick it up today. I&#39;ll get back with you on it.
