Not quite a review, but the authors in this book are some of the strongest, most resilient people I have ever met. They have overcome their son’s homicide (Jenny Rietveld) and started an LGBT youth suicide prevention hotline and won an Academy Award (James Lecesne). They hold top positions at some of the best colleges and universities across the U.S. (Judy Thrasher, and Jenn Burton). They are out, proud and starting mini and macro movements because of their story (Claire Kaufman, Matthew Shaffer ...more

I have read countless books, in many genres. I approach reading a book the same way I try to live my life: with an open heart & mind. As human beings, we are never going to agree on everything 100% of the time. As a society, we need to learn how to disagree with love when we cannot agree--very few of us know how to do that without judging or placing conditions on that love. Everyone has a purpose, worth, a desire to be accepted, and deserves to love and be loved. Rivedal's The I'mpossible Projec ...more

What is life about other than a journey? This book which is written by 50 authors takes you on a journey of discovery. Not only about the stories in which you will read but about who you are within them.

I enjoyed each and every one of these stories. Some of them moved me to tears while others moved me to be in deep thought and in awe of the strength of others. The book is humbling in its words and it captures the essence of life in its truth. Each of our journey's are different and I do believe

This weekend I finished reading my proof copy of The I'mpossible Project, this book is amazing, 50 stories of people overcoming obstacles and doing something positive with their life. My little part of the book I share briefly about my suicide attempt in 1993 and the things I have learned and try to do since that day. What I didn't expect was how all areas of the book had such an impact on me. There are sections that focus on family, physical health, trauma, mental health, lived experience with ...more

My heart has really been touched as I read Josh Rivedal's book, The i'MPOSSIBLE Project Reengaging with Life, Creating a New You. I originally read the book as my son shared his story, but I quickly became engrossed in the individual stories of each of these author's lives. I am a sufferer of chronic pain, and the stories involving chronic pain gave me so much encouragement. I want to thank each of the authors for taking the time to share a little piece of their life to give all of us hope in th ...more

I am honored to be one of the fifty authors in this book and inspired by the writings of my fellow co-authors. Reading how they overcame their own challenges motivates me to keep navigating my own journey.

This book is an eye opener that touches on subjects that can change anyone's perspective on suicide, mental health, transgender, and beyond. It's a battle cry for those who have been touched by cancer, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, and other diagnoses.

Reading this book invokes compas

Being a mental health and substance counselor for many years and using biblo-therapy , I would say this is the best. The personal stories of the writer’s struggles with depression, suicidal thoughts, anxiety and identity crisis

gives the reader motivation to continuing seeking the answer for the difficult problems of life. It also gives inspiration from real humans. And finally, the personal stories challenge the reblader to face the future with hope and strength. I recommend iMPOSSIBLE as first

Uplifting stories of resiliency from all walks of life!
As I read the The i'Mpossible Project: Reengaging With Life, Creating a New You, I found each of the authors’ stories to be personal but relatable and encouraging. There was a wonderful power in the depth and brevity of each piece; a tangible way to find hope amidst struggle and view resiliency up close. The diversity of stories provides the opportunity to relate in ways we might not notice from the title. This book inspires hope and growth

s is a great, inspirational read. It reminds me of the Chicken Soup for the Soul, just better. The reason it is better……it is unpolished. I loved that. I felt like the authors were talking directly to me.

These stories are about the struggles in life and overcoming most obstacles. And if you can’t overcome, it is about learning to accept the things you cannot change.

I do not think I have ever stopped reading this book since I started it. I just keep rereading a story every day. They always brig

If you're looking to make a life change or just need a pick-me-up, The i'Mpossible Project is the perfect choice!

This is one of the most powerful books I've read in a long time. My outlook on life has changed after reading this book. It's kinda like Chicken Soup for the Soup but a bit more substantial. There are fifty short stories, some on the LGBT experience, some on coming back from suicide, some on mental health. I recommend this book for ages 13+ and for anyone who needs a little pick me up. I'll be giving this one out for the holidays as well.

Reading the amazing stories of the 50 authors in this book is so inspiring and motivating. We are taught things get tough and are therefore impossible... but that is not the case. Here are amazing stories of hope, action, and people showing that all is possible. We just have to never give up and keep working through the tough times. Tough moments do not last, tough people do!

When Josh asked me to share my story for this collection I didn't know what to expect. After reading it I'm truly honored to be included among so many great stories of inspiration. Some of them left me in tears, others left me laughing but they all left me thinking. These are wonderful inspirational stories that remind us that we are possible and that we can overcome anything.

In Josh Rivedal's continuing work in suicide prevention, he gathers different stories from those with the lived experience. His authenticity rings true as he highlights three affected populations: 1) Those suffering from physical and / or mental health medical conditions; 2) Individuals from the LGBT community; and 3) Our Veterans. Mr. Rivedal takes an honest view of a serious problem that many people conveniently and casually dismiss. Our lost friends and loved ones deserve better than that and ...more

Josh Rivedal believes that stories have healing powers. By sharing stories with each other we teach as well as learn. So when the skies get all dark, pick up The i’MPossible Project book and read a story or two, be inspired, and wait for the storm to pass.
