Chicken Soup for the Soul has put together a great book of stories for people to inspire them during these tough times.

Congratulations Terri! What a privilege to see your name in print. I love the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, it ministers in so many facets.

The is a tragic time for many people financially that need to know that God is still working miracles.

Oh, is this one out for sale already? My current story has the heroine struggling with financial issues and it's set around Christmas. You gave me an idea. Maybe I'll have to have a friend present her with this Chicken Soup edition for Christmas!

How wonderful that you could take something bad and make something good out of it. I am thrilled that your story is number one. Now everyone will notice it and read it. The grapics on the book are so inviting.
The book looks wonderful, but I don't care to be in the drawing.)

Carmen said...

You really are inspiring! I love how you write about your trials and tribulations in a way that can help others. Congratulations on yet another submission. Every one gets you closer to that book deal! You've got writer's spunk....and someone will recognize and utilize that soon!

Sinclair said...

Wonderful that you are in there, and in first position as well! I certainly know about recession trials. Jobless now for almost a year and now having to have an emergency root canal without insurance three weeks before Thanksgiving has not been a source of inspiration for me.

I find inspiration lately in knitting for charity.

Heckety said...

God provides- it's as simple as that. We have struggled financially our whole 21 years of married life, and the most bizarre stuff has gone wrong financially but God provides...sometimes in an equally bizarre fashion as the devil's meddling, and we've had to laugh. If God is for us who can be against is TRUE!
And congrats on publishing another article!

Jill Kemerer said...

That is awesome!! First story in the book--very cool. I'm so happy for you!

Ang said...

Congratulations Terri on your newly published story and congrats on your new job! You know...inspiration is what keeps us going. My family has endured many bad outcomes over the last few months such as my father being diagnosed with cancer. We just lay it in God's hands for him to take care of. Even with the bad...we are still so grateful for our blessings each and every day.
