Favorite Chicken Soup book! Dec 2 2010
By Cherise Kachelmuss - Published on
Format: Paperback
Everyone has that crazy aunt, uncle, brother or at least an experience with an odd family member. I have many memories from Christmas parties, so many that we don't even have parties anymore due to the craziness! This Chicken Soup book "Family Matters" is all about the craziness in our families! I can relate to many of the stories, others made me laugh so hard I almost peed, others made me feel like maybe my family isn't that crazy! It is full of 101 great stories that are sure to cheer you up, make you smile, and make you feel like you are not alone! "Family Matters" is so far my favorite Chicken Soup for the Soul book. I also think it would be a great gift for anyone anytime!

There are others just like you... Jan. 28 2011
By Jewelry Whisperer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Do you have a crazy family? Yes, I do too!

Do you love your family with all your heart yet wish there were days that you could just run away from them? At least for a little while? Me too!

When I refer to "this" is generally a reference to my extended family and not my children and husband. Sorry mom and sisters...just being honest....but I wouldn't trade any of them for anything.

"They" are the reason I am "me"

Reading Family Matters from the Chicken Soup for the Soul series enforced the idea of what "family" truly is. Family doesn't mean perfect and peaceful everyday of the week but does mean that there is a unity, a protection and a silliness that is only evident with those we love.

Reading Family Matters will take you on an emotional journey from silly to serious. You laugh and relate to many of the stores and you will also cry and empathize with the situations described.

You know the saying..."You can choose your friends...but you can't choose your family", right? Well with Family Matters you can also choose to laugh right along with other families and realize that you are not alone in this crazy life. There are others that are just like you!

Take my mother-in-law. Please. March 21 2013
By NinaSchatzkamerMiller - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is not a typical Chicken Soup book. In addition to the heartwarming stories there are some that are just hilarious, like Gretchen Bauer's story about her mother-in-law. I get such a clear picture of the subtle digs and snide remarks that I feel like I'm getting the inside story from Gretchen as though I'm a friend. It's not mean-spirited, it's just the kind of stuff that would be shared over the fence between neighbors.
