With the economy struggling right now, it is a great time for reading. There is something so relaxing to sitting down and reading a book. Maybe it is because you can "get lost" within the pages of the book.
I was recently sent the "Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough People" book to review. This book is packed with 101 stories about overcoming the economic crisis and other challenges we may be facing. These tough times we are in won't last forever, as the seasons change...and this book reminds us that. One great thing about going though the tough times is making tough people.
Tough Times, Tough People is a book with several inspirational stories. I love how the Chicken Soup for the Soul books have a page-two pages for their stories...easy to read, and quick. Being a Mom, it can be a challenge to find the time to read, but Chicken Soup for the Soul books are perfect for a quick lift with a motivational story.
From the back cover:
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough people will encourage, inspire, and support you through all types of difficult situations, whether financial, health-related, family or personal issues. Read 101 personal stories from real people about meeting their challenges: downsizing and enjoying a simpler life, finding the silver lining in layoffs and other economic troubles, living with illness and disability, surviving natural disasters, grief and healing, the value of family and friends, and 10 bonus stories of faith to pull through.
Available at Amazon: $10.17.
I love the faith inspired stories that the Chicken Soup books have! Almost every time I read the stories, I feel so great and learn something from someone else.
I think this book is so fitting for what most are facing and enduring right now.
