I just read Wynona Judds Memior Coming Home to myself. The scary thing is..I read the whole book in less than 24 hours. For a book to captivate me like that is in itself, something...

I found it to be powerful. This book hit on so many supjects...healthy relationships, anxiety and depression, parenting, entertainment, health and wellness, childrens health and development but mostly,personal growth.....

She talks about so many of these things-and powerfully so-its a story of her journey to self acceptance-written in a way I could have never expected from a "star"-even if it was one I was already a fan of. It reads like a conversation with an older, wiser woman you respect. I found myself open to learning from her and yet in awe of how much we had in common. We-Wynona and I (ha!) made so many of the same mistakes..and for the same reasons..her longings for acceptance from her mother and her father, and others, her need to please, lack of boundaries, shopping for emotional reasons, emotional eating, the many "distractions" we allow ourselves so we don't have to deal with real problems and more. She was abandoned, betrayed, hurt, taken advantage of, etc..just like me...(and you?)...wow...it was just a great book...I feel like it validated me ...and yet offered challenges for me..how to be a better communicator, better parent, but most of all, it reminds me I need to be good to myself first. To "put myself on the list" as she puts it.

I really liked that it doesn't have a perfect ending (which you would know if you have seen her on any number of talk shows recently) she isn't wearing a size 8 jeans-and isn't trying too. She has lost some weight and is trying to develop healthy eating patterns but she is mostly figuring out who she is and learning to embrace herself....

I had the pleasure and honor of personally meeting Wynonna when she spoke for a conference benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital where my son Frankie was successfully treated for leukemia. Even though the room was filled with media and important people, she zeroed in on my nine-year-old and gave him her full attention. She rewarded Frankie with her honest emotion and made him important. In our brief meeting, I could tell she was real and genuine. Then, as now, her honesty and insight on life is a refreshing departure from the sanitized spin-doctors and approved messages for public consumption.

In "Coming Home to Myself," Wynonna Judd is still genuine in her story of rising above obstacles, hardships, difficulties and adversity to discover new opportunities and hidden blessings. Sometimes uncomfortable, yet boldly truthful -- her self-candor is as refreshing as it is riveting. This is an intimate and sincere view of a woman who has experienced the peaks of success but has also been humbled by failure. She proves that life is not necessarily in what life gives us, but in what we make out of what life gives us. I applaud her for the courage to write and share this exceptional book.

I've long been a fan of the Judds and Wynonna, but this book makes me love Wynonna Judd even more, as a person, a professional, and a survivor!

I read this book in a day (and I'm a slow reader). The story flows and the words are powerful. I cried and I laughed as I read, but I realized I am NOT alone. Through her story of love, loss, betrayal, and moving on, Wynonna carries us along the ride of her life and lets us see that we too can overcome!

If you've ever had a moment of self-doubt, READ THIS BOOK!

This was a great book. I have never really listened to Wynonna's music but would hear it on the radio occasionally. I did see her on Oprah and also on Larry King Live and I liked what I saw so I picked up her book. Well, like the other reviewers before me - I could not put it down. The reader really gets a clear idea of who Wynonna really is - unlike some biographies. She really tells it like it is, but with a lot of compassion for others & whole lot of spirit. A must for all women on a personal journey. I am giving it to my 25-yr old daughter next because it is so empowering.

As the mother of two toddlers I don't get much time for leisure reading, but I could not put this book down, I read it in 3 nights (after the kids were in bed). I have been a fan of Wynonna's music for many years and have followed her heart-felt struggle with her weight and her relationship with her mother. As you might suspect, there is a very honest, caring and intelligent women behind the superstar's beautiful face. I recommend this book to any women, especially Mothers, who struggle daily trying to balance it all. Her story is a true inspiration to us all.

Format: Hardcover
I have read about Wynonna's life and have been shocked at the instability she suffered as a young child, but just reading the "facts" as she portrayed them really made my heart go out to her. Born to a very young person not ready to be a Mom, shuffled from California and back to Kentucky, made to be responsible for her sister when there should have been an adult responsible for HER, in and out of school, not sure at times if the rent would be paid or if food would be on the table...no wonder Wynonna had some issues to work on as an adult! Then to discover the lie of her paternity (and I really think Naomi gets off very easy for all of this) and never get to meet her biological father or have any closure...I felt a lot of outrage about all that Wy had been exposed to. In spite of this, it is not a "Mommy Dearest" and she shows remarkable empathy and generosity of spirit toward her mother (wasn't it pretty chilling--Naomi shooting a bullet 4 inches above her lover's head? Again, appalling!). You pull for Wynonna and feel thrilled that she is breaking the cycle of addictions. The chapter "Peace in This House" is beautiful. I think this is a great book for anyone raised in turmoil who wants a better life, or anyone who takes a good look at their family and its patterns and says, "I want a better life!"
