It’s What We’re Reading Wednesday with Jessica over at Housewifespice! And I have a grown-up book to share!
When I dropped my e-reader and it broke, I was in the middle of reading Trusting God with St. Therese by Connie Rossini.
I’m not finished yet, I’ll admit. However, I am liking it so far. Rossini has an easy, conversational, but not-too-familiar style, much like a modern Therese! Reading Trusting God even as far as I have, I’ve seen the saint’s life in a whole new light. This has watered and fed my growing devotion to Blessed Zelie and Louis Martin. If you’re looking for an uplifting read, check out Trusting God with St. Therese by Connie Rossini. And now excuse me while I get this goodie loaded onto the family iPad.
Thanks, Erin. What a nice surprise as I begin my book blog tour! I’m eager to hear your thoughts when you’ve finished. And I hope your new e-reader lasts a good long time.
My pleasure, and thanks for the e-reader wishes! Best to you on your tour.
This sounds like a great book! I really enjoyed The Story of a Family, which is the collected letters of Bl. Louis & Zelie Martin (mostly Zelie).
I’m not even through it yet, and I feel confident recommending it. Thanks for the rec on Story of a Family. I’ll have to add that to my dance card!
Catherine, I did use some of Zelie’s letters as background information for the scenes from the life of St. Therese. The two-volume Letters of St. Therese is also a great source for learning more about Therese’s spirituality.
