    Adventures with the Grandchildren: One of the Perks of Getting Older

    Adventures with the Grandchildren: One of the Perks of Getting Older

    Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with your Chicken Soup for the Soul, and today I’m talking about a new book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Young at Heart. This book covers a little bit of everything but the overarching theme is dynamic aging, getting older gracefully, and having lots of fun while doing it. One of the fun parts of getting older is having grandchildren or grand nephews and nieces, and today I’m going to share two stories about that, including one about a literal accidental meeting with country singer Loretta Lynn.

    Six Ways to Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

    Six Ways to Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

    Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with your Chicken Soup for the Soul, and today I’m going to share six ways to step outside your comfort zone, with stories from Chicken Soup for the Soul: Get Out of Your Comfort Zone. This is one of my favorite pieces of advice from the world of Chicken Soup for the Soul: to try new things --even if they’re scary. I find it so empowering and energizing when I do new things—even something as simple as shopping at a different grocery store. And of course there are the big things, too, like taking a vacation in a country I’ve never been to before. I am constantly reminding myself to make a habit of saying yes to new things, because otherwise my world will accidentally get narrower and narrower.

    When the Cat Is Meant to Be

    Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with your Chicken Soup for the Soul, and today we’re talking about cats. We have a really fun new book out called Chicken Soup for the Soul: Me and My Cat. It’s all about the magic of sharing life with a cat. After all, they keep us company, provide so much unconditional love, share in the ups and downs of our lives, and definitely make every day an adventure. And sometimes, no matter how they come into our lives, they just seem as if they were meant to be with us—the perfect cat and human combination. That’s what we’re going to see in today’s two stories.

    Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with your Chicken Soup for the Soul, and we’re talking about mothers and daughters as we approach Mother’s Day. We have a fabulous new book out called Chicken Soup for the Soul: Mothers & Daughters. It’s all about that magical bond between mothers and daughters… and grandmothers, too. And mothers-in-law! And it contains a lot of great advice and role models, too. Today I’m going to share two stories about mothers and grandmothers who faced difficult, emotional family situations and rose to the occasion, making sure that everyone was happy even though it meant changing long-held views and traditions.
