Post by Kristin Jarvis Adams | April 3, 2018


Share your story with me! I want to know about a time when you relied on someone or something that became your touchstone during a difficult period in your life. Did you have an invisible friend as a child? An animal whom you loved more than anything else? An old smelly blanket your mother refused to allow out of the house? A secret place you could go to think?

When my son Andrew was growing up, he found friendship, comfort and solace in a chicken he named Frightful. Over the years, the two formed a bond that helped him navigate his way through a life-threatening illness.

Send me a story at by May 4th, about your own Frightful in 150 words or less. Include a photo if you have one, and be sure to include your name, address and email address. I will post your story on my website to inspire others!

Three stories will be chosen to appear in an upcoming blog and each author will receive a signed copy of THE CHICKEN WHO SAVED US.

Write your heart out!

All my best,

Kristin Jarvis Adams' story of Andrew and Frightful is a beautiful and remarkable journey through medical mysteries, a reliance on a superhero chicken, and ultimately, a transcendent faith that ushers in hope when all else seems lost.
