Tough Times, Tough People Giveaway

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough People reminds us that tough times won’t last, but tough people will. Tough People is all about overcoming adversity, pulling together, making do with less, facing challenges, and finding new joys in a simpler life. This new collection shares tales of people who have been laid off, lost their homes, and endured wrenching life changes, but discovered the underlying gifts in their new situations. More time at home with family, creative “staycations,” more satisfying job opportunities, and renewed gratitude for health and life are just a few of the silver linings these survivors have learned to cherish.

These 101 stories about overcoming life’s obstacles are encouraging and inspiring. The stories are broken down in sections including Simple Pleasures, Silver Linings, Accepting the New Me, and Tough People. A few of my favorite stories are “Board Game Revival”, “Hair is Overrated” and “Marks on the Heart”.

I am so excited to have this uplifting giveaway to share with my Mommy Babble readers! I am making this giveaway simple without many hoops to jump through since life is tough enough right now.
