Giveaway: Two Chicken Soup Books

Don't forget to check out this week's other giveaways!  Each one has a low number of comments, so give it a try!

Today I have two books to encourage you.  The first is Chicken Soup for the Soul: A Book of Miracles and the other is Chicken Soup for the Soul Think Positive.

It was when I was first teaching at Nature's Classroom that I heard the phrase, "Attitude is Everything."  I didn't realize how true it was until I was having a bad day...and a bad attitude.  I got over myself and changed my attitude, and then I went on to have a great day. 
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive: 101 Inspirational Stories about Counting Your Blessings and Having a Positive Attitude
 Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive is a collection of stories where thinking positive and acting upon it made a difference.  Though I don't think positive thinking can change your life in the sense of it having power in life to do things only God can do, I do think a positive attitude can change your own life and even others.  Some people are a huge blessing to others just because of their attitudes and outlook.  They allow themselves (in many cases) to be used by God to impact others.  
Chicken Soup for the Soul: A Book of Miracles: 101 True Stories of Healing, Faith, Divine Intervention, and Answered Prayers
Chicken Soup for the Soul: A Book of Miracles was much better than I anticipated.  I appreciated the focus being (mostly) on God, faith, and prayer in this book.  Even Jesus' name is used a bit.   Most of the stories began with a Bible reference, though a few were just quotes.   Honestly, I wasn't certain what to expect with this book since it's easy to be "spiritual" without giving credit to the One true God, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Giveaway!!  Wouldn't these make great Christmas gifts?
