In these pages I share my personal encounter and friendship with a humble woman who, by God’s grace, transformed countless hearts all over the world. My hope is that this testimony will speak to your heart. I believe the blessings bestowed upon me through the holiness of Mother Teresa must be shared with those
who did not have the good fortune to know her personally.

While this book focuses on the life and spirit of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, it also speaks of other saints in our midst–inspiring people I have met along the way throughout my spiritual journey…

mother teresa and meHere, at last, is a look at Mother Teresa, not as she stood in the midst of her amazing life, but as she influenced someone we all could know, someone who could live right down the street from you or I.

In her newest release, Mother Teresa and Me: Ten Years of Friendship, Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle captures the impact of a friendship few of us can fathom and makes it seem normal, achievable, and in accomplishing that, she makes sainthood not only a nice theory, but a goal we want to pursue.  In this treasury, we have two women’s hearts touching, across miles and vocations, and in the glimpse of their friendship, we see a part of ourselves, and we are inspired.

Whether you’re looking for a last minute Christmas gift or stocking stuffer, something to bring you closer to God, or a nugget of inspiration for the throes of winter, check out Mother Teresa and Me.

Donna-Marie is going to be in quite a few places this week, so don’t miss hearing her talk about what’s in this gem of a book.  If you haven’t read Donna-Marie’s other books, they come highly recommend (by me and many others).  It’s a body of work that examines our womanly vocations, and she speaks gently to me when I read her writing.
