    1. I was shocked to learn they have more than books, but doesn’t surprise me – have to keep up with the times. Chicken Soup for the Soul really is a great selection, my book case is FULL of them and I have even given many away as I used to be a brand ambassador for them which means my collection was extensive!

    1. Very important! I enjoy finding joy in the littlest of times, raising the three kiddos who are very much different from one another – autism, ADHD and a teenager daughter, life can be quite chaotic for sure. I do my best to find that one moment of joy each day before I lay my head down to sleep! I wish you success in finding joy in life every day 😉

  3. I haven’t read one Chicken Soup for the Soul book. I’ve heard great things about it but haven’t had a chance to read it yet.

  4. I used to read these books all the time! It has been a long time but I think I should read them again. You’re right it really does make your day brighter.

  5. I use to be obsessed with chicken soup books when I was younger! I need to get better at saying no without feeling guilty. I always feel bad when I say no, even if the no is a good thing

  6. Yes, yes and yes. I agree with all of this. Filling your life with joy and good relationships is not as hard as some people think it is.

  7. Signed up for your newsletter. I actually saw this at the store the other day and didn’t want to buy anything other than what was on my list. When I went back a few days later I couldn’t find it. 🙂

  8. These are all great ways to experience joy in life. It is so important to get rid of the clutter and I do know it does help for sure. My sister was always a reader of Chicken Soup for the Soul and reading has always been something she did to relax. Thanks for sharing these great tips and giveaway.

  9. I love the chicken soup books, they were such a huge favourite of mine when I was younger. Such a great giveaway!

  11. I loved the Chicken Soup for the Soul books. I’ve read quite a few of them. They were everywhere in American bookshops but I haven’t seen them as much here in the UK.

  12. I love the Chicken Soup for the Soul books! they’re very inspiring to read… I am in the process of decluttering my life due to moving (and in a smaller place!) I’ll have to check this book out : )

  13. My bookshelf has a special section dedicated to Chicken Soup books. I fell in love with the series early on. I give them as gifts often, too. There is a book for literally every person in every situation. Sometimes even another volume! Especially right now as I have 2 little girls, I like that I can pick it up & read a chapter & get something out of it, unlike other books that can’t handle my little disruptions throughout the day.
