Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Tough Times – Giveaway

var fbShare = {size: ‘small’,}

The holiday season isn’t always ‘holly and jolly’ for everyone.  It may bring about thoughts of a loved one that has died, or perhaps there is an incurable illness in the family, a loss of a job may mean economic hardships.  Whatever that ‘tough time’ might be, Devotional Stories for Tough Times would be an encouraging gift for that person you know or perhaps even for yourself.

For years Chicken Soup for the Soul books have been resources for those looking for comfort and hope.  This particular anthology of stories shares the circumstances of those who have struggled with tough times, sharing how their faith has brought them through it.  Each story concludes with a short prayer.

The introduction and a bonus devotional are written by Mary Beth Chapman.  Mary Beth is no stranger to tough times; the Chapman family lived through an accident which resulted in the death of their 5 year old daughter and sister.  She candidly shares how the journey out of the dark place was a struggle.

I was deeply touched by the stories in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Tough Times.  It is available at retailers and online for an SRP of $14.95.

Three readers will win a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul:  Devotional Stories for Tough Times (srp $14.95).
