Chicken Soup For The Soul – Find Your Inner Strength – Book Review

One of the most important lessons in life to learn that no matter who you are or how fabulous a life you lead, there are going to be times when things happen that knock the wind right out of your sails. These things are a part of life. They’re part of the human challenge. They’re part of what makes us grow.

When you face trials – it isn’t the trials that matter, but how we respond to them.

Are you able to face adversity and rise above it? Are you resilient enough to move forward and face another day, even when you can’t see the sun shining behind the clouds?

During difficult times, we need encouragement – we need inspiration – we need hope. We need to know that others have faced similar circumstances and have not only survived but have thrived. We need a friend we can count on to guide us through dark days – a friend who is always there for us like Chicken Soup For The Soul.

In Chicken Soup For The Soul – Find Your Inner Strength, editor Amy Newmark has gathered 101 Empowering Stories Of Resilience, Positive Thinking, & Overcoming Challenges to spur us on in those moments in life when we need it the most.

Find Your Inner Strength opens with actress Fran Drescher sharing her experience with cancer in the Forward – the first of many life-changing stories you will read.

What other types of stories will you find in Find Your Inner Strength? This book is divided into the following categories:

  • Overcoming Self-Destructive Behavior
  • Fighting Health Challenges
  • Powering Through Loss
  • Moving Through Disabilities
  • Accepting The New Normal
  • Accepting What Makes You Different
  • Learning To Reach Out
  • Rising To The Challenge
  • Pursuing Your Dreams
  • Taking Back Your Life

I have had the privilege of reading many of the books in the Chicken Soup For The Soul series over the years and I love them all. Some are fun – some are uplifting – some are heartwarming. But, Find Your Inner Strength is a gem among gems. This book is special. The stories in this book truly have the power to transform lives.

If you or a loved one is dealing with a challenging circumstance where a positive word from someone who’s been there could make all the difference in the world, then you owe it to yourselves to pick up this truly inspirational book!

    Lately I’ve been using a meditation technique to slow down my thoughts and clear my mind. It’s amazing how easy it is to solve problems when your mind is not being distracted by unrelated things. Thanks

  2. Angela says:

    I love Chicken Soup books. I wanted to submit a story for this one but never did. I’ll have to see if I can figure out here how to enter. Happy Holidays to you and yours!


  3. Angela says:

    This might be my second comment. If so, sorry. In answer to the giveaway question: How do I gain my inner strength when life gets tough? I would have to say probably through praying, writing, and getting outdoors. I feel closest to God outside and being out in nature is incredibly uplifting to me. Again, Happy Holidays!

    I love the chicken soup books, though I’ve only read two. This one sounds like a great self development book – perfect for self sagacity. :-=)

    I always praise the Lord when I have trials! I find that if I focus on God, and not my problems, I have a better perspective of what’s happening in my life! Patsy.paterno@ — hope I’m not disqualified. My nephew who will be coming for a visit lives in California :^)))

      Hi Patsy,
      Great perspective to have!
      I will include you in the drawing and if you win, just provide me with your nephew’s California address for the shipping! 🙂

  9. This would be a great book to give to someone very special I know who’s dealing with a lot of difficulties in her life and needs to constant reminding to stop looking to her friends for strength, but instead look to God for help.

  10. Glogirl says:

    I regain my inner strength by looking to my faith. My faith sustains me during the rough patches in life and I know that there is a reason and a bigger picture for the struggles I face.

    I pray I cry I listen to music
