Every once in a while I find comfort in reading stories that speak to my own experience. I might find a solution, or just take delight in knowing that I'm not alone. Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Women fulfills that need. There are many stories that will inspire you, bring comfort, make you laugh, and potentially set you off on a new life journey. I must share that I am excited to be one of the contributing writers in this book - story #96 entitled "He Holds My Hand." This book is another great selection from the Chicken Soup for the Soul family of books.

I gave this to my mother-in-law for Christmas as one of my gifts. It wasn't on her wish list, but I thought she would enjoy this book during a difficult time in her life. After a few months, we came to visit her and she was halfway through the book. She raved about it and told me about the stories she read. She also mentioned that it helped her faith during some challenging times because she can relate to a few of the stories in the book.

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Women: 101 Daily Devotions to Comfort, Encourage and Inspire Women by Susan Heim and Karen Talcott is the newest is the CSS series and this one, being just for women, does not disappoint.

Susan Heim, Karen Talcott as well as a host of other contributors present these short inspirational packed stories that will bring perspective as you read each one.

In this day and age, high expectations are placed on women. Attempting to meet (and sometimes trying to exceed) these expectations can leave us feeling detached, removed, and distraught.

These 101 devotions that open with scripture, follow with a short, poignant story and end with a suggested prayer may be just what you need when you've superwoman-o-meter has maxed out.

Find yourself `Running From God' at times, read Lorie Bibee's story on page 35. You may find there is no such place.

Overwhelmed with your daily list of `To Do's", read Elizabeth Fenn's story on page 66. You may find there is no mundane task that God is not willing help you with.

Or maybe you wake up tomorrow and have an rebellious streak. Read Susan Heim's `Feeling Like Peter's" story on page 168 that introducing the idea that you cannot be `estranged' with God and playfulness has a definite place in all our lives.

As women, we need breaks from our busy lives. Each of us can spare a few minutes alone each day. When you come upon those few moments, grab this book and read a quick story. You may find the rest of your day goes much better with your perspective back in alignment.

I was very happy with this book, which I ordered as a gift for my neighbor. It arrived on time and in perfect condition. The devotional stories are short enough to read at the doctor's office or during other short periods of free time - great for busy women!

I know this book is meant to be read in little daily bites, but the devotional stories were so interesting and encouraging that I just kept reading! I gave copies of the book to several friends, and found they did exactly the same thing! The devotions are well written, but even more, it's a wonderful thing to see the hand of God moving in peoples lives. And it helped me to see the holy side of every day living. This is definately on my Christmas gift giving list!

Many turn to God in times of trouble. Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Women hits its stride when it tackles more serious subject matter. Editors Susan M. Heim and Karen Talcott contribute heavily to this volume, but the "My Prayer" sections following each story highlight the significance of their input. A foreword from 9/11 widow Jennifer Sands sets a genuine, heartfelt tone. It delivers an emotional punch that few stories in the collection can match.

Any time the subject of spirituality is addressed, there is a fine line between preaching and inspiring. Selections that ring true do not tell the reader what to do. They do not end with a happily wrapped-up conclusion. Instead they depict a continuing struggle against life's challenges. Faith is the sustaining factor. These pages contain many personal affirmations that are worth celebrating.

In "Losing a Child," Nancy Purcell reflects on the unexpected death of her 16-year-old daughter. She beautifully compares the fulfilled expectation of spring with the promise of eternal life.

Twenty-five years later, I still think on her truth, her love of Christ, and her joyfulness as I dig in the earth and plant seeds, expecting a garden of beauties to rise come spring. And they do, just as Christ did that Easter morning. Because of Him, I never think of her as lost; I know where she is.

For anyone who has witnessed a loved one dying, the details in Janice Flood Nichols' "Hands Stretched Out" are spot on. The slow wasting away of an elderly parent or grandparent is difficult to watch. Small moments of hope help to ease the feeling of utter helplessness.
