Customer Reviews

Easy to read. Soul-healing. No judgement. I read this for self care and putting wisdom into my life immediately. It’s a heartfelt, rejuvenating hug that reminds us we aren’t alone and we can ride out of the ashes and learn from every experience.

This book did not disappoint! Ms. Bearden’s ability to share her wisdom and make it relevant to YOU is amazing! It’s like having your best friend there cheering you on! Thank you for sharing YOUR fight song Ms. Bearden and helping me to sing mine!!
