In Part 1 of a three-part episode, Iyanla invites six black men into her House of Healing to help fix their broken spirits and broken hearts. Among the guests are former Boyz II Men member Michael McCary, singer/songwriter Kevin McCall and the father of internet sensation Lira Galore.
On the first day in the house, the men hear Iyanla's intention for their journey and learn the house rules, which don't seem to sit well with Lira's father, Terrance. Later, in a group session, Michael reveals his decadeslong struggle with multiple sclerosis, and after a rocky start, the men come together to participate in a team-building exercise.
Preacher and motivational speaker DeVon Franklin also visits the men to help identify crucial tools for healing—but it doesn't seem to matter much to Terrance. He says he just wants to go home, and despite his housemates urging him to stay, Terrance storms out of the house.
