Thérèse Martin could be a very stubborn young girl. All too often,
if someone wanted her to say “yes,” she wanted to say “no”!
But then, as she is preparing for her First Communion, Thérèse
discovers a way to turn her everyday trials and tribulations into
something beautiful for Jesus. Join Thérèse (and her family) as she
learns to “gather roses from amid thorns.” With simple
storytelling and vibrant watercolors, Flowers for Jesus introduces
children to a saint they can relate to: the young Thérèse of
Lisieux, before she became known the world over as a spiritual
master. Flowers for Jesus draws on her autobiography, Story of a
Soul, to relate a key aspect of Thérèse's "Little Way" in
language that children can understand and appreciate. The book
concludes with biographical information about Thérèse, as well as
the excerpt from Story of a Soul on which Flowers for Jesus is based.
