Book Review - Trusting God with St. Therese

I have too long delayed in writing a few words about this outstanding book. Oh, it is easy to mouth the words "I Trust God" but far more difficult to actually do so. Connie has given us the tools to help turn our words into action.

How does she manage to do this? - by drawing upon her own spiritual journey, life experiences, challenges and crosses, and the teachings of the Little Flower.

I particularly enjoyed the way in which she weaved her personal story with the teachings and life of St. Therese. She provides the reader with penetrating, potentially life changing questions at the end of each chapter - some of which force a painful but necessary self-examination. The reader would be wise to take much time to ponder the issues she raises.

This book is not a one-time read - it can be, and should be, a lifetime resource which one frequently takes off the shelf from time to time to re-read, to re-ponder and to become spiritually re-invigorated. I am about ready to do just that!

Get your copy and join Connie and St. Therese on a rewarding spiritual journey.
