From sexual abuse, excessive drinking, failing in school, having a child while still a teenager, unable to get a job, having a second child with Down syndrome, gaining excessive weight and allowing herself to no longer care about how she looked — the painful pattern of all types of abuse seemed endless. She began to see that how she perceived her life and the attitudes she had, were crippling her as much as all her bad habits and the ugly things that happened to her.
The realization that through forgiveness of others and most importantly, herself, would prove to be her path to new confidence, new attitude, a joy and love of life and God, and a profound hope that by sharing her story, others may find the courage and strength to do what Yvonne has done.

Excellent Testimony! This woman has been through some things that probably would have had me curled up in a ball and crying for the rest of my very life but I found myself rooting for her and not being able to turn away from this book literally until I finished, knowing that she had overcome every obstacle. Very inspirational and motivating!
Wish it were longer The Day my Soul Cried is touching, challenging and thought-provoking. Maya Angelou said "We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty. This inspirational journey is a valuable tool and will challenge readers to reclaim their dreams. This one I did complete, and in one sitting.
I was immediately captivated by it, and then overwhelmed by memories of my own idyllic beginnings -- carefree innocence, the very essence of ebullience. Lamentably, this euphoria was brief, as I then found myself engrossed in the authoress's harrowing experiences as a child and young adult. She conveys the intense anguish and confusion that was felt by the little girl of her past extremely well. As I was led through the writer's pilgrimage I was powerfully inundated with feelings and emotions of both joy and misery; The Day My Soul Cried is not an evanescent read, it will stay with you.
By its conclusion, I was satisfied in the idea that Yvonne Pierre had reached her destination. I think anyone could relate to and appreciate this piquant account of life; as it seems the multitudinous sorrows and pitfalls that are inescapable in this world, may only be nullified by overcoming them. This book is a shining example of aspiration and determination. Congratulations on a stirring recountal.
The raw feelings experienced by Yvonne are something that are hard for some people to imagine, but she explains it in a way that makes you feel like you were there. This book is certainly an uplifting read for anyone who has ever felt like they were at the bottom.

Hope gives meaning to suffering. Thank you again. Lifting you up in prayer right now… Hugs. Penny, hugs from E. May God comfort you and bring a sense of healing to your grief! I pray for you now! Angela, I grew up in a very stoic family where emotions were just not shared openly. I honestly thought, for a long time, that something was severely wrong with me because I felt things so powerfully and so deeply and it was very hard to hold back tears.4840.ru/components/iphone-7/ba-handy-orten.php
Soul Cry (Live) Lyrics by Misty Edwards
He gave us eye ducts from which tears are allowed to flow. He gave us the ability to generate a good laugh when joy warms our soul. I so agree with you…letting grief pour out, lets HOPE come in and fill us up. So sorry about your beloved Pap Pap…but thankful for the comforting lesson of Hope that God brought to you….
Blessings, Bev xx. Me, too.
God has sent many people whom I did not know to pray for my marriage and my family. I need a good cry. But, my children need to see a strong mother especially during the holidays. My husband is trying to be a better man, but the damage is done. Lord, help us. Beautifully said! I lived with abuse for 20 years and help my sorrow in for a long, long time.
The day my ex left, the day God set me free, my soul cried tears which had been bottled up for two decades. I understand the pain of losing loved ones. Thank you for this post. I totally saw myself…and the lights came on. I wonder if it has something to do with being the eldest child?
Anyway, I appreciate your gentle treatment of this painful subject. Much needed for me. Angela, Hope does give meaning to suffering. She was in Hospice Care and I was the only one with her. The hospice nurse had called and told me she had had a bad stroke and I left work to be with her. I got to hug her and tell her she could let go and be with the family. She left her earthly body and then I felt peace knowing she was with God.
Sometimes we find ourselves being strong for others.
The Day My Soul Cried: A Memoir
It can take root in our souls, a big, ugly tree to be chopped down. Fear, depression, illness all can be linked to it. Even Jesus wept. In two months it will be eight years since I suddenly lost my husband to a heart attack. I understand your pain. Life was awful the first couple years but I learned that to get to the other side of grief you must go through it.
From what you say, He is bringing beauty from the ashes and I know He will use you to help others walk through their grieving.
