From the Publisher
Meet Marisa Guerin, PhD
This beautiful book started as a conversation with my friend of over 50 years, Br. Joseph Schmidt. We talked about how liberating and reassuring the wisdom of Thérèse could be for stressed-out laypeople trying to live a good life. That conversation became working notes, and the next thing you know, Brother Joe and I were working on what would turn out to be his last book.
Neither of us anticipated the challenges we would encounter along the way. Brother Joe died a few weeks after we ﬁnished writing. His will to live during those last diﬃcult months was powered by his devotion and desire to share Thérèse’s wisdom with more readers.
A Book for Everyone!
This book is for regular people like me and you—people who are searching for a way to live that isn’t knotted with self-blame, tension, or stressful striving. The mentoring that Thérèse has to offer us is surprising and very practical. She is so often dismissed as saccharine, or wimpy, or naïve. But this courageous young woman was a powerhouse of emotional and spiritual maturity. She grasped the signposts of a peaceful, loving life: inner freedom, compassion, creativity, a willing spirit, gratefulness, and self-surrender.
The genius of Thérèse was her insight that God’s love for us is never violent or cruel, but always welcoming of our repentant, restless hearts. Check out Thérèse’s wisdom; she is a trustworthy life coach.
