Therese of Lisieux, Teresa of Avila, Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, and Mother Teresa- who wouldn't want these women as friends and guides? Lively, determined, devout but never passive, they were all straight-shooters with an abundance of common sense. They were also deeply in love with God, clinging to Him with a tenacity that freed them to do the impossible.
Using the Great Commandment as her guide, Gina Loehr focuses on how each of these women lived out one particular aspect of the command to love God with heart, mind, and soul and neighbor as self. Practical tips offer suggestions on how to be like the Teresas and points for reflection drive the lessons home.
These friends of God will help you become, as they were, expert in living out Christ's perfect law of love.
