Wonderful stories Oct 26, 2009
I bought two books, one for my sister and one for myself. We both enjoy the stories, they are inspirational. Each story is no more than two pages long but leaves you with the need to reflect on what you have just read. Even when I have finished the book, I know I will go back to it when I need to feel uplifted.
Like Visiting An Old Friend May 10, 2009
When I read all the essays, tears came to my eyes. The stories are faith affirming, heart warming and reflect the universal journey of life filled with joy and sorrow and above all, love. I was amazed at the number of people from all over the country who share the same Catholic eperiences. I felt connected to them in an intimate way as if I'd always known them. It was truly an honor for me to be included in this book. I will always treasure my copy of it.
Using faith even in a non-religious way Mar 13, 2009
I have to admit, I'm not catholic, I'm not relgious at all. I read a story from this collection titled "My Saturday Starfish" which I really liked. It's a meaningful story on an interpersonal level; it's all about interacting with kids who have no direction and trying to help them and believe what you're doing is good even when you can't see the results. And it's meaningful on a philosophical level...that faith need not be religious to be important to our lives. It's not an easy time for anyone now, so if you're looking for examples of how believing in yourself and good intentions have good consequences, this might be the book for you.

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Living Catholic Faith Feb 28, 2009
I purchased two copies of this book. One copy I gave to a friend who needed a pick-me-up. One copy was for myself. The stories are uplifting and compliment the Catholic faith. They have a calming effect on me. My friend, who received the book as a gift, was very pleased with the book as well.
