As most of you know, I am part of the Chicken Soup for the Soul network. So, I get to pick and review any of the new books that come out. I am sure that almost everyone knows about the Chicken Soup for the Soul books. However, for those that don’t, Chicken Soup for the Soul books are collections of short stories sent in by real people about their own lives and experiences, or sometimes about the lives and experiences of close friends or relatives. These books are always at the top of the best sellers list.

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Touched by an Angel: 101 Miraculous Stories of Faith, Divine Intervention, and Answered Prayers was compiled by Amy Newmark and Foreword by Gabrielle Bernstein.  They did a wonderful job of sharing amazing stories about people who are open to spiritual interventions.

I think this is a book that everyone can identify with. I've always loved hearing stories of how someone's prayers have been answered or how someone may feel that someone is watching over them.  I know some people don't believe in that type of stuff but if you keep your eyes and mind open you are sure to see for yourself.  I know that my grandfather watches over me.  My grandfather always loved trains.  After he passed away, I was sitting on my porch.  All of the sudden, I heard a train at almost the same time he passed away.  I had never heard a train while sitting on my porch before.  Every once in awhile I hear a train, and I know that he is still watching over me.  It is so reassuring.  I feel truly blessed to still have that connection.

So, for this book, I decided to just flip and open the book until I felt moved to stop and read the story.  I just had to let the spirit move, I guess you could say.  I stopped at "A Touch on My Shoulder".  It gave me chills after reading it.  It is so moving, touching, miraculous.  It is the thing we all dream of happening when we are going through a rough situation.  I don't want to really tell you about the story because I want you to experience it for yourself.  I will say this, it is every mother's dream when our child is not feeling well.

You have to read this book.  It is so uplifting and will give you so much help.  There are miracles all around us.  We just need to be open to them.

There are so many more great stories in this book.  There are stories for everyone.  I'm sure you will find something you will like if not love.  I love that I can skip around and find the story or stories that interest me at that moment.

I loved this story and so many others in this book.  It is a great book that you will love.  I'm sure you will end up sharing the stories in this book with your friends and family.  There are so many good stories that you will have a hard time finding a favorite.  Here are the chapters you can choose from:

  1. Messages from Heaven
  2. A Gift from an Angel
  3. An Auspicious Visitor
  4. Miracles Happen
  5. My Guardian Angel
  6. Divine Messengers
  7. Miraculous Healing
  8. Answered Prayers
  9. Divine Intervention
  10. Renewing My Faith

One of the things people, especially reluctant readers and children, like about Chicken Soup for the Soul books is that you do not have to read this from cover to cover. You can skip around from story to story reading the ones that pique your interest. This makes it the perfect book for those that are not big readers.

I highly recommend this book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Touched by an Angel: 101 Miraculous Stories of Faith, Divine Intervention, and Answered Prayers. This book, like all Chicken Soup for the Soul books make great gifts, especially for those hard to buy for people.
