Tyler Perry is a re-known producer, director, actor, writer, philanthropist, author, songwriter and entrepreneur born in 1969 in New Orleans, Louisiana. He is a man that is motivated to grow in every venture he puts his mind to all while giving back. Tyler Perry is a man of strong spiritual convictions, who strives to grow and share his spiritual growth experiences via his book “Higher is Waiting” via Penguin Random House that released on November 14th 2017. Penguin Random House strives to provide books domestically and internationally that bring content that is not only entertaining but inspiring to readers.
What I love about Penguin Random House and Tyler Perry’s collaboration is that this is a memoir that moves steadily along with great example of spiritual and emotional growth. Tyler Perry depicts emotional growth through great individuals that helped him throughout his life that come to life and you feel empathy and love for them as well as delight for the benefits they provided to Tyler in his life. Tyler Perry also illustrates the dark moments that have helped him grow, the hard individuals that could not hinder his growth but helped from stronger bonds with those good people that were working in his life.
Tyler Perry’s “Higher Is Waiting” is a great, easy and smooth read. I love that although there are many chapters none is too long. Each chapter ends with a bible verse, ideas and memories to reflect on from Tyler Perry’s childhood and even scientific tidbits. I love that his spiritual growth steps are easy to follow and are compiled from over decades of his own life experience. We see his life as a child with a hard abusive father but two heroic women, his mother and adopted Aunt Mae, so full of faith and positive attitudes in his life. He also discusses his anger as a teen, young adult and how he was able to forgive his father, Emmitt, the bad situations he was in as he left his father’s home and the struggle to express his art. One of my favorite part’s was his own letter to his 13-year old self. I love how healing and hefty with emotional growth that one letter carried. I wish great things for Tyler Perry in his life and for his search for Root people to continue to be fruitful as well.
