Selections written by Melissa Wootan of La Vernia, whose initial contribution to the Chicken Soup for the Soul books was published last fall, have been published in a new book in the series, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Messages from Heaven.

Released Feb. 28, the book contains “101 miraculous stories of signs from beyond, amazing connections, and love that doesn’t die,” the cover proclaims.

Melissa’s daughter, Kyley, died in a vehicle accident in December 2008. The new book recounts two incidents since Kyley’s death that have brought comfort and reassurance to her mother, not only that she is OK, but that her mom will be, too.

Melissa already has received responses from far and wide from readers whose hearts have been touched by her stories.

In a recent email to the Wilson County News, she wrote, “I had a gentleman from Saudi Arabia email me who had read the book and my stories and wanted me to know how the stories touched him and gave him peace. He sent me a picture of himself with his baby girl and told me that he wanted me to know that he reads the book to her and he does not take for granted the precious time he has with his daughter. His family lost his sister when he was only 12 and he said it devastated his family. It’s just amazing to me how God is using this book and my family’s story to touch people all over the world. I am truly humbled and at the same time overjoyed that God’s promise in Romans 8:28 is being manifested in ways I could never have imagined.”

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Messages from Heaven is available at bookstores and online retailers.
