“For years I had read that I needed to trust God in order to draw closer to him,” Rossini said, "but I had no idea how to go about it." As she dug deeper into the life and teaching of St. Therese of Lisieux, Rossini began reflecting on specific actions she could take to follow the saint's way of trust. Those reflections started as posts on her blog, Contemplative Homeschool. They eventually became the basis of her book.
Trusting God with St. Therese tells the story of St. Therese's life in dramatic form. At each stage of the story, Rossini delves into the challenges to trust the saint faced. How did she overcome them? The author places her own story of struggling with trust alongside St. Therese's. She shows that it is possible for average, sinful people to follow St. Therese in trusting God completely.
"In the Bible, God urges us to trust Him with all of our heart," said Catholic evangelist and author Gary Zimak. "Unfortunately, many of us fail to do this on a regular basis. In Trusting God with St. Therese, Connie Rossini not only helps us to understand the importance of trusting in God's providence, but gives us simple steps (based on the teaching of St. Therese) to help us achieve that goal."
