The Angels and Miracles in Our Lives

New Chicken Soup for the Soul collection shares 101 true stories of the unexplainable

COS COB, Conn. – Tamra Anne Bolles was accidentally tripped by one of her students while she was lecturing and walking backward. As she was falling, sure to land on the hard floor, she felt a pair of hands push her up to standing. But there was no one there. Her entire class saw it happen and no one could explain it.

For 30 years, Dorann Weber had a recurrent dream in which her late mother was trying to tell her something. She would reach out and sadly show Dorann her hand, in which there was a glow, and say something that sounded like “Yaawwnn.” Then, Dorann was given a bag of knitting supplies that had belonged to her mother. When she reached in, she found a hard object in the yarn; it was her mother’s missing diamond ring. That was when Dorann realized that her mother had been saying “yarn” in all those dreams.

Eva Carter’s mother stopped talking to her sister after a fight, and then heard that she had died. Years later, in a country thousands of miles from home, Eva and her mother overheard two women talking in the ladies’ room of a restaurant—about Eva’s mom and her sister. They said her sister missed her and it was such a shame they didn’t talk. She was alive! Eva and her mom asked the two ladies to join them at their table, but they never emerged from the ladies’ room. Instead, they disappeared. But the message was received, and Eva’s mom reconnected with her sister.

These are a few of the 101 compelling tales in a new collection from Chicken Soup for the Soul, well known for its inspiring, bestselling books about angels, miracles, messages from heaven, answered prayers, and divine intervention. Good things do happen to good people, and Chicken Soup for the Soul: Angels and the Miraculous (September 26, 2023, 978-1-611591040, $16.99) is filled with examples, demonstrating how miracles can happen when and how we least expect them.

The book offers glimpses into the lives of regular people who find themselves in extraordinary, unexplainable situations, their prayers answered and their lives forever changed. It’s about the anonymous angels who touched their hearts and saved their lives. From miraculous connections and answered prayers, to divine intervention and inexplicable healing, to angels and messages from heaven, these stories prove that miracles can happen, every day, to people from all walks of life.

“These stories open our hearts to possibilities—that something, somehow, somewhere can work in our lives to make good things happen when we need them most,” says Amy Newmark, author, editor-in-chief, and publisher of the Chicken Soup for the Soulseries.
