From the Book Jacket: "What an awesome celebration of God's love for each of his children! Read Chicken Soup for the Christian Soul anytime, but especially when you need a heavenly hug." Joan Wester Anderson author, Where Angels Walk and Where Wonders Prevail "'God created man/" someone once suggested, 'because he liked stories.' When Jesus spoke, he spoke most often in parables. This collection continues the tradition of faithful people telling stories of their experience of God met in the routine of life. I laughed and cried as I read them. In story after story I recognized the thread of divinity woven into the fabric of life. A treasure for Christians who love to hear and tell stories." Michael Lindvall author, The Good News from North Haven "Your walk with Christ will be enhanced every single day as you open the pages of this spirit-filled book."

By relaying the insecurities and triumphs of a variety of moms and moms-to-be--including multiple births, premature births, adoptions, and single-parent families--this book will tug at the heartstrings and ease the fears of any expectant mother, regardless of her situation. Chapters include: Special Moments, Delivery Day, Challenges, On Adoption, Advice from Others, For Expectant Fathers, and The First Few Years.

Chicken Soup for the Expectant Mother's Soul: 101 Stories to Inspire and Warm the Hearts of Soon-to-Be Mothersby Mark Victor Hansen Patty Aubery Nancy Mitchell Jack L. Canfield
Stories to inspire and encourage mothers-to-be.
This new Chicken Soup book offers a heartwarming and uplifting collection of stories that celebrate the lifelong bond of sisterhood. Whether they share this special connection with someone through genetics or the heart, only a sister can understand the complex, deep, and dynamic relationship they share with loved ones as they journey together through the stages of life. For younger sisters who look up to an older one, older siblings who tolerate a younger sister tagging along, or the brother who knows full well that girls can wrestle as well as any boy can, this book celebrates the sisters in our lives. It conveys how sisters influence us during life's most defining moments: helping us face the schoolyard bully, providing wise counsel during our first crush--and subsequent comfort after the breakup--and refusing to reveal intimate secrets to parents or friends. With real-life stories from celebrities and everyday sisters-next-door, chapters include: On Love, Insights and Lessons, Sibling Rivalry, Overcoming Obstacles, The Bond Between Sisters, Sisters by Heart, On Family (Brothers, Too!), and Special Memories and Traditions. While they may not live under the same roof, act in the same manner or even get along without an occasional spat, nothing creates a more special and lasting bond than sisterhood. Now there's a book to celebrate that bond.
For younger sisters who look up to an older one, older siblings who tolerate a younger sister tagging along, or the brother who knows full well that girls can wrestle as well as any boy can, this book celebrates the sisters in our lives.
