Chicken Soup for the Soul "Devotional Stories for Wives" Review

We have had the opportunity to review a book from Chicken Soup for the Soul, Devotional Stories From Wives, co authored by Susan Heim and Karen Talcott.

It would be hard to believe if anyone said they had never heard of Chicken Soup for the Soul. They are home of the largest catalog of user- generated, life changing stories. Since 1993, more than 112 million copies of Chicken Soup for the Soul series have been sold. There are titles that are translated into more than forty languages. USA Today named Chicken Soup for the Soul one of the five most important and impact-full books in the last quarter century, in the year 2007. For the last 19 years they have been touching the lives of many, with stories of real people.

Susan Heim is an author and editor, who also specializes in parenting, multiples, and christian and women's issues. Susan has co-authored many books for Chicken Soup for the Soul. She's been known to be an exceptional editor, who manages to say the truth when it comes to life's ups and downs in a way that touches hearts and connects readers everywhere.

Karen Talcott is also an author and editor who specializes in multiples, women and christian issues. While Karen was caring for a newborn twins and a toddler daughter, she decided to leave teaching after 15 years and focus on freelance writing. Her writing experience comes from her teaching grades 3-6 for 15 years and a master's degree in curriculum from Oregon State University. Karen likes to take long walks with her two golden retrievers in the mornings, she finds that is when she finds her best inspiration as she communes in God's world.

Chicken Soup for the soul, Devotional Stories for Wives, came along to me at just a perfect moment in my life. I am of faith and I have always been an avid reader. My husband and I have a son who has ADHD, he turned 13 this year. It seems that our sons struggles are getting worse and worse this year. It has taken some toll on us as a family, we have had our disagreements about how we go about tending to the different issues we are having with our son. I think we both have felt alot of confusion and anger, we both have held alot of that inside. Our communication has not been good.

Being of faith I have turned to our God in this time of struggle. Reading this book of 101 unique devotionals has really affirmed Gods unconditional love and wisdom. Its uplifting to know there are other women out there going through the same things and getting through it.

Chicken Soup for the Soul Devotional Stories for Wives consists of scripture reading, chicken for the soul stories and custom written prayer.

I pray before I read each night, I open the book to a random page, I have faith that the closest story is where God wants my thoughts to be for that night.

I will keep reading the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, I find the stories give me inspiration and strength, and a lot of the stories from other real people are heart touching.
