Review and giveaway: Chicken Soup for the Soul- Devotional Stories for Women-Giveaway closed
I recently was really blessed by having the opportunity to receive a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul- Devotional Stories for Women. Like most people, I've read many Chicken Soup books in the past and have laughed and cried along with the stories. They're always heartwarming and thought-provoking. This new book is no exception.
The stories are organized into 11 categories including faith, marriage, motherhood, self-esteem, illness and life lessons, to name a few. Each story is very brief, just over a page in length. And each story is introduced by a bible verse and is followed by a short prayer to follow up on the idea presented in the story.
I really enjoyed this book, and I know I will continue to use it in my devotions in the future. There are so many great stories in here- I appreciate the honesty and wisdom that the authors used in their writing. One story in particular really spoke to me- entitled "Everyday Mundane Things." This story spoke to me in the place where I'm at right now, knee-deep in housework and trying to keep my kids fed and entertained. I was reminded that this, while not a catastrophic life event, is still a challenge, and one that I need to remember to be asking God for help with! I lose sight of that some times, so really appreciated this reminder.
This is a great book, and one I recommend as a great addition to your library. And if this book doesn't appeal to you- check out the list of options on the Chicken Soup site. They have something for EVERYONE. Seriously, the list of topics is staggering.
