Format: Paperback
Sometimes when people say they're going through a tough time, their so-called problem is that they can't afford their daily latte. Or their boss made them work late a few days in a row. Maybe they're fighting with their kids about their hair and clothes. In other words -- they don't know tough.

The people in this book know tough times. Their kids have died from cancer or been paralyzed in auto accidents or killed by drunk drivers. Their parents abused them, their husbands left them, they lost their jobs, they're living in their cars. One woman had a gun held to her head in a bank holdup.

Yet the 101 writers who tell their stories in this book came through their heartbreaking experiences with new faith, a sense of optimism or the simple realization that life does go on. Many experience the kindness of others, both friends and strangers, and many see signs in nature that comfort them -- a dove outside the window, a flurry of ladybugs. One writer expresses thanks for the simple joys of a tire swing and a loyal dog.

I appreciate the Bible verse that starts each story and the prayer that concludes each. When you're going through a tough time, it can be hard to read the Bible or find the words to pray, so reading these stories, and then meditating on the Scripture verse and using the words of prayer that these inspiring storytellers have shared is a great boon if you're suffering through your own struggles.

Format: Paperback
I love these Chicken Soup books! I think part of their popularity is simply the accuracy of the title! Just as Chicken Soup is perfect when you have the flu, these books are "comfort food" for the soul! This latest installment from the hit series is "Devotional Stores for Tough Times." While walking through dark times right now personally, I thought this book would be perfect and I was not disappointed!

The book is divided into ten sections, the first being "Lean on Me." Oh how hard it is to lean on others! These great stories share different situations where people stepped outside of their comfort zone and took the chance to lean on someone else, only to be rewarded with some of the greatest gifts imaginable. I love the humanity and rawness with which these stories are told. Often kindness is found in strangers that we never even meet again but impact our lives in a moment of need.

The second chapter "Be Strong and Courageous" gives encouraging stories of survival from people who have faced the worst life has to offer, and persevered through faith. I love how each story begins with a Bible verse and ends with a corresponding prayer to tie it into your own life and struggles.

My favorite stories came in Chapter 8 "Answered Prayer." I love to hear stories about the power of prayer and see the Lord moving in such huge ways in people's lives. No request is too small for him!

This book touched me deeply with all of its stories. It's the perfect gift for that person on your list that has gone through a divorce, lost a loved one, is caring for an aging parent or really any difficult life struggle. They will find comfort, peace and joy in its pages this holiday season.

This book was so powerful that after reading it I had to share it with someone else I knew would really appreciate it.

This series is not just a gumbo of topics and content that will impact the life of the reader. It is also a reminder that we are not alone in the tragedies that we face and things will get better for us if we just hold on.

Throughout the book, like others in the series, we are able to hear from men and women like ourselves that have gone through things that they may have thought at one time would destroy them. Because of their faith, however, it not only allowed them to survive--they were then fortified to be able to learn from the challenge and now share the experience with others.

Isn't that the great thing about not letting the bad overwhelm us or cause us to toss in the towel? How much better to use that experience as a catalyst for good and share what we have learned so that others will know that they can do the same.

These are just ordinary men and women that have been empowered by something larger than themselves to move onward and past the hurt and pain. It's not always an easy journey or expeience, but it is definitely one that we can use to make our lives and those of others better and more fulfilling.

I am honored to be a contributor of this powerful book (page 55). I set a goal of making this my daily devotional resource-one devotional story a day. Yet, I couldn't put it down. I read incredible stories of faith from people who walked through tough times. What I learned is that the people who endured incredible suffering, didn't walk alone. They believed and trusted in God to be with them. I laughed and cried and prayed as I read. Today I feel closer to God as a result of spending time in this book. It even helped me through the loss of my precious friend who is Home with Jesus for Christmas. Thank you, Chicken Soup, for all your efforts in putting this wonderful book together.

I had the privilege of contributing my story to this book - pg 89!
This book is full of amazing life experiences by real people and how they coped with their situations. Although sad & painful at times it is ultimately encouraging and heart warming. A wonderful gift to share with friends and family - especially anyone who is facing 'Tough Times'. In most tragedies in life there is not a 'solution' or even answers as to why things happen - the key is allowing yourself to grieve, heal and trust that whatever comes your way, God will give you what you need to get through it.
