About the Author
Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble, FSP is a former atheist who, thanks to the grace of God, has returned to the faith she was raised in and now tries to help others bring their loved ones back to the faith. A few years after returning to the Church, she heard God calling her, so she left her job in Silicon Valley to join the Daughters of St. Paul. She now lives in Boston, where she is an editor for Pauline Books and Media and writes for Patheos Catholic, Aleteia and the National Catholic Register.

Aside from providing great advice on how to help bring back those so-called "prodigals" renew their Catholic faith, it also provides great insights on how to become great followers of Christ. Aside from prayers and obedience to God's will and commandments, readers are also provided truths about life on issues such as prayer, suffering, listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit, developing a better relationship with the Lord, advice about becoming a Saint(why not?), and many other ways for people to see Christ in ourselves. Added to that, the parable of The Prodigal Son was vividly explained and thoroughly analyzed for us to realize the right and wrong things done by the main characters namely:the prodigal son,the father and the elder son. The analyses made will definitely increase our spiritual wisdom.
Overall,it was one good book that is easy to read but full of wisdom. I would recommend it to anyone who have family members that no longer practice their Catholic faith and for Catholics to become better followers of Christ.
Thanks for providing a real resource for family members of lapsed Catholics!
She shows how we need to accept our loved ones no matter what they believe or do not believe.
She writes, "Sometimes, when those we love are engaged in sin, the most important thing they need to feel from us is our love and approval, not of what they do but who they are and who we know they can be."
God is present in the pages of this book and filled my heart with joy and hope as I read the words. I forced myself to put the book down so I would take my time reading it. However, all I thought about while not reading it was that I wanted to go back to reading it. I gave up and went back to reading.
Continue to write Sister. I am already looking forward to your next book.
