About the Book

Learn how Therese of Lisieux trusted God through tragedy, scruples, spiritual darkness, and physical suffering. Connie Rossini pairs episodic stories from the saint’s life with memories of her own quest to trust. With sacred scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and insights from psychology, Rossini leads listeners to surrender their lives completely to Jesus.

Practical and accessible, Trusting God with St. Therese includes questions for reflection that make it a perfect for book clubs and faith-sharing groups.

Let St. Therese teach you to:

  • Move beyond blaming those who have hurt you.
  • Believe in God’s goodness, in spite of tragedies.
  • Wait patiently for God’s will to be done.
  • Embrace your weaknesses.
  • Benefit from your sins.
  • Overcome anger, envy, and presumption.
  • Face the future without fear.
  • Go straight to heaven when you die.

As someone who has struggled with this issue for most of my life, I highly encourage you to read this book. It will change your life!”
