Blessed Life: My Surprising Journey of Joy, Tears, and Tales from Harlem to Hollywood is a heartwarming memoir by actress and director Kim Fields. I loved watching Fields portray Tootie Ramsey on The Facts of Life, so I was glad to learn more about her life through this memoir.
Blessed Life is an empowering an encouraging read with a genuine feel. Through her writing, Fields conveys an optimistic nature, and I admire her transparency and personal strength. I enjoyed reading about Field’s journey of faith and the close relationships she has with her family members.
With so many child actors having sad or even tragic outcomes, it is comforting to see that Fields has thrived in her life. I liked learning new things about Fields, as well as seeing how significant events helped impact and shape her life. And I love how Fields emphasizes that a blessed life is not one without challenges.
