These compelling stories present convincing evidence of God’s active presence in our everyday lives. Whether you’re a cradle Catholic or a convert, solid in the Faith or wavering, these stories will deepen your conviction and stimulate your hope and trust in God. This extensive selection of faith-strengthening stories includes those of... Joan, who recited Hail Marys on her Buddhist, 108-bead strand while standing at her dying father’s bedside and is transformed when she receives a glimmering rosary from beyond the grave. (“The White Rosary”) Jennifer, who, while walking in a strange place and having no idea (yet!) that she needed protection, is suddenly accompanied by a large, friendly, vigilant dog. (“Four-Legged Angel”) Sharon, who, distraught over having misplaced a precious jewelry box, rejoices at the effect that finding the box has on her teenage son’s faith. (“Lost and Found”) Blair, an exhausted, overworked hospital resident who orders the wrong test on a patient—a Catholic priest—and whose encounter with him afterward is both startling and everlasting. (“The Accident”) Donna, a patient who had derived valuable assistance and deep comfort from regular phone consultations with a nurse and who calls one last time to say thank you and is amazed by what she learns. (“Angel on the Line”) Angela, whose East Texas Sunday school class decided to pray for snow and whose students at the boys’ prison where she volunteers discover the remarkable power of prayer. (“Please, God, Make It Snow”) Your faith will be bolstered and your heart leavened by these poignant, true-life accounts of God’s grace in action and how it invigorates and transforms people’s lives. The stories in this book were previously printed in Chicken Soup for the Soul books "Living Catholic Faith," "Answered Prayers," and "A Book of Miracles.”

Here is a selection of astonishing true stories that will leave you convinced of the reality of God like never before. This remarkable collation includes the accounts of: Angry 15-year-old Cynthia, who scorns her mother’s belief that God will always provide—until she sees an incredible result. (“Thanksgiving Angel”) Dawn, who although not Catholic is asked by her dying son if she too can see “Mary” at his bedside. (“Pretty Lady”) Courtney, in tears and praying in the back seat of her mother’s car after it had stalled, watches the impossible as the gas gauge needle suddenly begins moving above E. (“Fueled by Faith”) Terrie, a cash-strapped newlywed who skips a weekly milk purchase only to marvel at how long their one gallon lasts. (“The Milk Jug”) Martha, who after 50 years still feels the flood of God’s love for her nine-year-old self, who had asked Him for healing and then looked in the mirror. (“Warts and All”) Romona, who felt a tapping on her shoulder—twice!—before turning and rescuing her brother. (“My Brother’s Keeper”) James, a six-year-old whose confidence never wavers, even after losing his trusted knife when fishing. (“The Fish, the Knife, and Saint Jude”) Gene, who works three jobs to care for his family and prays for $311—exactly. (“Ask and You Shall Receive”) The Everyday Catholicism series from Chicken Soup for the Soul and Sophia Institute Press are books not only about “living the Faith,” but also about a Faith that is living. These powerful, uplifting stories show the love of God and His actual presence and engagement in our lives—if only we have the eyes to see!

“Opened Our Hearts will bring a tear to your eyes and a warm feeling in your heart. Julienne Lentz creates a feel good story you can’t put down.” —Marci Shimoff, co-author of Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul “Opened Our Hearts is a must-read for anyone who has faced any obstacles or disappointments. Julienne Lentz shares a couple’s difficult journey by turning heartache into something meaningful and fulfilling for themselves and others. Bravo!” —Cynthia Kersey, author of Unstoppable “I will recommend Opened Our Hearts to all people who love children. Sometimes on the way to a dream you get lost and find a better one ... Julienne and Ron did. Their dream to love children came true as they granted my son’s wish. Now I hold another priceless treasure; through my son’s illness, he became the wish granter. Thanks Julienne!” —Chrissy L. Nelson, author of Eagle Doctor, Stories of Stephen, and My Child with Special Needs, founder of Stephen’s Hope Foundation “Your heart will rejoice as you meet true heroes, children, and parents granted a dream experience by Make-A-Wish. Julienne Lentz beautifully shares with readers the joys and challenges of working with youngsters facing life-threatening illnesses and all the individuals who see to it that these dreams come true.” —Dick Wainwright, nationally recognized author of various works for children and adults “Opened Our Hearts is recommended reading for all who love children—old or young, single or married. Julienne Lentz’s story of how [she and her husband] turned a problem of their own into a blessing for others is inspiring. As a parent of one of their ‘children’, I felt an immediate bond with the other parents, as we have all been touched by their gracious charity, encouraged by their hope, and blessed by their love.” —Marianne Patrevito, Vincent’s mother
