Chicken Soup for the Soul: Stories About Angels

November 27, 2018
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Stories About Angels           
 
Are angels always around us? Sometimes mysterious good things happen to us, things that we cannot explain. They cause wonder and astonishment. How do these miraculous events occur? Who or what made them happen? Was it an amazing coincidence, a kind stranger who came and went so quickly that we’re startled, the answer to a prayer? Are these kind people celestial or otherworldly? Are there angels at work? Whatever the explanation, these events seem to be evidence of a higher power at work and they give us hope for a better future. They give us peace and comfort and the belief that our problems can be resolved.
 
We are looking for true personal stories about how an angel has touched your life – stories of true wonder and awe from people who have directly encountered or received help from angels. Amazing stories that will make people say “wow” or give our readers chills. Have you experienced something otherworldly or celestial? Or had a personal experience with an angel or divine being? How did your angel manifest himself or herself to you? How did your angel protect or guide you? Do you have a guardian angel?
 
The deadline date for story and poems submissions is December 31, 2018.
Payment is $200 + 10 copies of the book.
