The best stories inspire people to do better in their lives, and Chicken Soup for the Soul: Stories for a Better World is full of tales that provoke giving. Voice performer Marianne Fraulo brings a spiritual inflection to these stories of love and kindness, no matter the theme or location: discovering humanity in Mother Theresa's mission in Calcutta, finding inspiration in common citizens discouraging Eisenhower from war against China using simple bags of rice, or learning from the wisdom of a homeless man who taught a woman that things are just things. Deep and thoughtful, these tales will provoke listeners to spread kindness into the larger world.
Do you believe that a story can change your life? That it can inspire you to be more happy, more confident and more caring? That it can lift your mood, clear your head and give you perspective? Now what about 101 of the most uplifting stories you've ever read about people reaching out, stepping up and transforming their lives and the world around them?
At Chicken Soup for the Soul, we know that a story can change your heart. It can touch your mind. It can free your soul. The moment might be as simple as a small child giving water to a dog on a hot day or as heart-wrenching as a parent responding with love to the murder of their child. It might be as common as a class of poor immigrants giving their young instructor a new coat she needed but couldn't afford; as life changing as an unruly student learning to love math because of a dedicated teacher; as satisfying as someone apologizing for a hurtful action of several years before; or as monumental as the international work of Jimmy Carter and Oscar Arias, former President of Costa Rica. As these stories so wonderful illustrate, the power to change starts with you, but it doesn't end there. When we change one heart at a time-our own and then those around us-we create a better world. We hope these stories will touch and change your heart today.
