A NOTE FROM JACK AND MARK

From Chicken Soup for the Soul Presents Teens Talkin' Faith

A NOTE FROM

JACK AND MARK

We are thrilled to present you with this new serving of Chicken Soup for the Soul.

When you open up Chicken Soup for the Soul Presents Teens Talkin’ Faith, we hope that it will allow you to open your heart to discovering or renewing your faith. This book will offer an opportunity for you to accept, build, or strengthen your relationship with God. It is not a book about religion, but rather it is about teenagers expressing, exploring, and growing in their faith. This book is similar to our previous Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul books in that we have compiled many writings from teenagers across the nation who will share with you their life experiences, from trial and tragedy to triumph and joy. They write from the heart about how God has given them strength and courage to deal with tough situations, along with love and comfort in times of loneliness or despair. They share what it means to accept God’s grace and rely on His guidance. They also share stories of hope and joy. We have no doubt that you will relate to these teens as you read this book. We hope that their experiences and feelings will validate your own.

In addition, unlike our previous Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul books, this one comes with an additional twist . . . and her name is Mrs. T. Actually, she is Michelle Trujillo, an author, speaker, and teacher, but her students and readers call her Mrs. T. She is known for her ability to listen without judgment and to share guidance with teens with humor and conviction to help them make healthy decisions. Like the teens who have written for this book, Mrs. T also writes from her heart. We believe that in doing so, she will touch yours. At the beginning and end of each chapter, she will share stories, insight, and life lessons in a section that we call “T” Talk. While reading these sections, it is our hope that you will be encouraged, challenged, and inspired.

We pray that you enjoy this book as you grow in your faith. May God bless you and keep you!
