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 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 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.
