Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Tough Times

101 Daily Devotions to Inspire and Support You in Times of Need

Struggles test us all, but readers will find counsel and reassurance in these devotional stories of faith, strength, and prayer. This collection is filled with stories that show God's presence during times of trouble — from illness, addictions, job loss, grief, and much more — providing a boost and reminder of God's ever-present love. Readers will find encouragement, solace, and hope in these personal stories and prayers.

Susan M. Heim is a long-time Chicken Soup for the Soul editor and Christian author, specializing in family-oriented books and women’s issues.

Karen C. Talcott is an author and educator with an expertise in women’s issues, faith, and angels.

Unfortunately, we all go through tough times. It's just a part of life, but sometimes it helps to hear about how others walked through the dark days and nights, and finally saw better times.

I love devotional stories, and this latest book in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series is one that I will definitely read again. The short stories are inspirational, down to earth and at times heart breaking.

This book is divided into several topic areas including: Lean on Me, Be Strong and Courageous, Surrender to God, Power of Prayer, Divine Signs, His Healing Grace, Renewed Faith, Answered Prayer, and Count Your Blessings. Each of the sections has about ten relevant stories written by individuals who have experienced tough times.

This book is packed full of wisdom, inspiration and comfort for the often difficult journey of life, and each little story begins with a relevant scripture. I especially enjoyed the short and simple prayers that are randomly placed throughout the book.

This is a fantastic book and it would make an excellent choice for a Christmas gift!
