Even the rich and famous suffer and need solace, as Tyler Perry shows in Higher Is Waiting . The actor, author, producer, director, playwright, and songwriter grew up in New Orleans. The book is an inspirational memoir about persevering through hard times and choosing faith over fear—a spiritual guidebook for the modern generation.
Tyler Perry writes,
“Ever since I was a little boy I’ve always known there was something greater than myself,” he writes. “This holy force was protecting, loving, and keeping me close. It was helping me live through physical pain and emotional heartache and guiding me to envision and believe in extraordinary possibilities.”
