Chicken Soup for the Soul: A Book of Miracles Review and Giveaway

I have been reading books from the Chicken Soup for the Soul series for years. The name tells it all, each book really is a type of healing for the heart. The stories provided in these books bring you so many emotions. They have been a help for me throughout my life because they can truly put things in perspective.

One of the things I love about this series is how you can find a book that focuses on your personal needs. Whether you are a teen, a mother, a dad, an athlete, a teacher... there is something for everyone. And for many of us we will fit into several of these books. I have about a dozen of them and still go back and read different stories even though I've read them all before. They just provide something for your soul, reading real life experiences from people just like you. Some are going through things similar to you, some are funny, some are sad, all are moving and inspirational. And each story is a quick read, so you can turn to these books to read one story or many. Whatever your soul is craving at that moment.

The newest book in the series is A Book of Miracles. This book is incredibly touching. Here is a little about the book:
101 True Stories of Healing, Faith, Divine Intervention, and Answered Prayers
Everyone loves a good miracle story, and this book provides 101 true stories of healing, divine intervention, and answered prayers. These amazing stories prove that God is alive and very active in the world today, working miracles on our behalf. Regular people share their personal stories of God's Divine intervention and healing power as He makes the impossible possible! The incredible accounts shared by people from all walks of life show His awesome love and involvement in our lives. This book of miracles will encourage, uplift, and recharge the faith of Christian readers.

This book has restored many of my doubts and made me stronger in my faith. Sometimes life hands you something and you feel there is no way out, no hope. But these stories are proof that miracles happen and faith should never be lost. I got a glimpse into 101 different people's lives, different struggles and different emotions. And I have come to view life in a different way thanks to their stories. I have come to view prayer in a different way. It's a powerful book.

The Chicken Soup for the Soul books can be found at many bookstores. You can also find them on Amazon.com. You can also check out their website to see all the great books!
