Local resident Delena Richeson, a licensed professional counselor, is a contributor to “Chicken Soup for the Soul: Miracles Happen.”

Her story, “A Divine Goodbye,” (Page 243) is one of 101 stories in the book about a range of spiritual experiences from miraculous connections, answered prayer, divine intervention and inexplicable healing to angels and messages from heaven — proving miracles happen every day to people from all walks of life.

Richeson holds a master of science degree from Lee University and her passion is writing about her life challenges to help others. Her first novel will be released later this year.

In her story, “A Divine Goodbye,” Richeson tells of her overwhelming grief when her little girl Madison died. She was only 3 years, 10 months old, and Richeson said, “My faith was shaken — I Just needed to know, as her parent, she was happy. I prayed for a sign.” She tells how this prayer was answered. She said, “I believe losing a child is the biggest heartbreak anyone can experience,” but her comfort came with the promise of Matthew 5:4.

Stories like Richeson’s show us how miraculous connections happen all around us. Other contributors share amazing message from heaven they’ve received. Miracles happen every day — you just have to look around you to see them and be open to accepting them, says Shelby Janner, publicist for Shelton Interactive/Chicken Soup for the Soul publishers.

In 2007, USA Today named “Chicken Sop for the Soul’ one of the five most memorable books in the last quarter century. With more than 100 million books sold to date in the United states and Canada, more than 250 titles and translations into more than 40 language, “Chicken Soup for the Soul” is one of the world’s best-known phrases.
