Season 5 Episode 510
Aired on 04/07/2018 | CC tv-14
What does it mean to be a woman? In this digital exclusive, Iyanla and Jackie sit down with Jackie's two adult daughters to run through the contents of Jackie's "womanhood book," a journal filled with insights and guidance on what strong, healthy women say, what they don't say and how they behave out in the world.

"For example: 'A woman is a unique demonstration of God,'" Iyanla says. "'A woman is a thing of beauty.' ... 'A woman is a co-creator with the Holy Spirit. A woman is willing to be accountable for what she says.' You hear me? That's what a woman does."

Iyanla then has Jackie read from the book. "A woman knows she's worthy of her own time, energy and attention," Jackie reads. "A woman gives herself permission to feel her feelings without blame and making anyone else responsible for what they feel. Pays attention to her feelings, pays attention to her thoughts, takes responsibility for her feelings, takes responsibility for her thoughts."
