Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tougher People by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen & Amy Newmark


Description from book;
Inspiration, hope, and support for overcoming adversity, pulling together, making do with less, facing challenges, and finding new joys in a simpler life.
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough People will encourage, inspire, and support you through all types of difficult situations, whether financial, health-related, family or personal issues. Read 101 personal stories from real people about meeting their challenges:
* downsizing and enjoying a simpler life
* finding the silver lining in layoffs and other economic troubles
* living with illness and disability
* surviving natural disasters
* grief and healing
* the value of family and friends
* and 10 bonus stories about using faith to pull through


My take on the book selection;
I was utterly captivated from the first story. There were so many I could connect with, and in so many different situations. I had an array of emotions, but mostly compassion. The stories I couldn't connect to, I felt I learned from. Example; I love the term "staycation." When low on funds, and needing a break, tour things in your city, such as National parks, or a museum. You'd be surprised how uplifting it can make you, and you don't have to leave home. Where most vacations are costly, and far from home. I recommend you read the book, you may be as moved as I am.

  1. My husband and I have had a couple "staycations" but we never thought to call them that at the time. My co-worker did recently though and it sounded so fun, lol! I love the Chicken Soup for the Soul Books!

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
