The Story of a Soul - St. Therese of Lisieux - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Story of a Soul:

The story of a saint told in her own words.

My favorite St Therese of Lisieux quote from the book:

"If a little flower could speak, it seems to me that it would tell us quite simply all that God has done for it, without hiding any of its gifts."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Do you want to do great work or simple work?

Do you pray?

My review of the book The Story of a Soul:

I love her outlook.

I wish I could find such peace in little things.

I hope to have her faith.
