This is a powerful soul healing book. The book is divided into three chapters. The first one dealing with the pain and the destructive power of hurtful events in our lives. The second chapter deals with changing as a person in spite of our sufferings. The final chapter she pens the joy of victory in the aftermath of these trials. The first chapter was my favorite. Michelle Stradford uses vivid and graphic language to bring the reader to see a clear word pictures to describe the depth of despair ...more

This is a book of poetry that packs a punch. A mix of short and longer works, reading it I could easily imagine the author standing on the stage performing these poems, declaiming her words to a cheering audience.

Insightful, uplifting and sometimes sad, many of these works touched me. I particularly liked two short poems 'Second Chances' and 'You-volution'. Even if poetry is not usually your 'thing', I strongly recommend finding a copy of this work and spending some time with the wor

Beautiful and life-affirming

Michelle Stradford has done it again. “I’m Rising” is fierce and fresh, with inspiration for everyone. Friendship, love, pain, heartache, achievement, resilience, triumph—all part of the rich tapestry of this collection of poems. She is a She-nado!

Won this e book on Goodreads. It was very empowering. If you are struggling with self-doubt or low self-esteem, these words will help you build yourself up and remind you that you are worth it.

Stradford's poetry feels autobiographical in its nature. Anyone who has had codependency issues or toxic relationships can relate to the beginning sections (raises own hand). Chances are they have felt or experienced what Stradford describes before. Self-affirmations and self-care peppered into each verse are soothing words to hear. It's always powerful to share ways of accepting and letting go of old pains. I can imagine them being read aloud in a voice seeped with the sugars and salts of life. ...more

The words "you-volution" physically made me gag. So did "She-nado" and "Sheroes." Most of the titles of the poems were the same kind of inane eye rollers, but man. They would have been better without titles.
This book is exactly what you get from adding your ex-boyfriend's single mother on Facebook. Both are free, one supports a growing author, so at least there is that.
The drawings and graphics in this book are astonishingly bad and bland, adding to the very "basic" quality you get from these
