My Thoughts:

I was planning to read this book after the holidays when it wasn't as crazy, but I found myself curious of the stories and ended up reading this upcoming release from cover to cover last night.  This book is all about forgiveness, especially when it comes to rebuilding and repairing relationships.  With the holidays fast approaching many people will be dealing with their family relationships, some of which may be strained or in need of repair.  This book shares wonderful and inspirational stories that will help you repair these relationships, or at least remind you that you are not alone when it comes to having difficult forgiving or asking for forgiveness.  I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found all the stories inspiration.  If you have been struggling to forgive or at least heal and move on from broken or strained relationship, then this book is one you must read.  It not only inspire but help you with the seeing how you can change your views on forgiveness, help with anger you may hold and simply point you in the direct of healing.

  1. Yes, I am a fan of Chicken Soup books! My favorite is probably my first one I ever got, Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul, granted it's been a long time since I was a teenager!
