I first was enlighted by Dr.Vanzant just recently on "OPRAHS - SUPER SOUL SUNDAY program. She really made sense with the things she was saying. There was a man named Steve and he had a story of past addiction and he was still struggling with many things in life. She has him stand in the audience and then anyone else from the audience that has ever suffered from addiction, knew someone, was related to someone, married to someone etc. She wanted to show him he was not alone.And everyone was "standing with Steve" it was a very moving moment! She was giving life advise and wisdom and like I said it all made sense! So that is why I wanted to profile her here on my blog. Dr. Vanzant is such a powerful posative life force! She has several books out and I plan on getting my hands on as many of them as I can.
