The Holidays Can be a Stressful Time - Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Tough Times - Review & Giveaway #ShopaholicSanta



The holiday season can be a pretty depressing time for some.  I know we're flat broke this holiday season and let me tell you, it's no fun!  One thing that has guided me through this tough time in our lives is my faith.  Chicken Soup for the Soul has an incredible book out right now specifically for helping you get through tough times.  With stories of overcoming obstacles and answered prayers, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Tough Times would make a great gift for someone in need.


More information on Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Tough Times
As you may already know, I am part of the Chicken Soup for the Soul Blogger's Network and I receive a copy of one of their inspiring books each month.  This month I received a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Tough Times.  I haven't had a lot of luck lately - car accident, migraines, you name it - and I really needed a pick me up.  This incredible book is filled with inspirational stories about God's presence during tough times. 
According to their website, "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.  The 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 personals stories and prayers."
My Review
This book has really helped me to strengthen my faith and help me deal with the stresses life has thrown my way.  In my toughest times I've turned to my faith and have read the bible, specifically the Psalms, more times than I can remember.  There is something so comforting about prayer.  
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the stories the writers shared.  This book is very inspirational and a great read for anyone going through a stressful time.  I highly recommend this as a wonderful pick-me-up for someone feeling down or someone in need of a little bit of inspiration.  
Shopaholic Rating: 5 out of 5 Shopping Bags - A wonderful, encouraging read and a great book to read in front of the fireplace.
