    Magical, Miraculous Cats

    Magical, Miraculous Cats

    Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with a little Chicken Soup for the Soul inspiration for you from our latest bestseller, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Life Lessons from the Cat. We created this book because we learn so much from our cats—they show us how to be better humans and they teach us about resilience and fortitude and loyalty. And then there are the times when they just make us laugh, and it’s because of how they get away with breaking our rules because they’re so cute. They’re also so independent that they’ll often choose their humans, rather than the other way around. And sometimes the way they come into our families is just plain magical, as in the two stories I’m going to share today.

    Forgiveness After Death - It’s Still Freeing

    Forgiveness After Death - It’s Still Freeing

    Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with inspiration for you from our book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Forgiveness Fix. We made this book because I’ve read tens of thousands of personal, revealing stories from our writers during the twelve years I’ve been editor-in-chief, and I’ve come to understand that forgiveness is an essential key to happiness. Why is forgiveness so important? It’s because of the emotional weight we carry when we don’t forgive. And that pain and resentment can last even longer than the person we’re upset with.

This podcast turned out better than I could’ve hoped! What an honor to have my story included. Since being interviewed, I’ve listened to several other podcasts as well. Amy’s questions are always thought-provoking and her kindness is palpable. Need a lift? Listen to this podcast. And if you listen to mine, I hope you are inspired!
