Thérèse "Challenge" Week!

Updated: Oct 20, 2023

Friday, September 8, 2023 - Marisa Guerin, PhD

Dear Blog Readers,

May I invite you to be part of a community of kindness, grace, and gentleness for one week? Starting Sunday, September 10, my publisher, Word Among Us Press, will host a “Little Way Challenge.”

Each day for seven days, there will be a post highlighting a small, meaningful step we can all take to follow the example of St. Thérèse of Lisieux -- our mentor for how to live a loving, peaceful life.

This challenge has only three steps:

1. Check the page, @wordamongus, and try your best to take on the daily challenge. (No perfectionism needed!)

2. Repost/share the daily challenge and add your experience, thoughts, or a selfie.

3. Tag a friend or two each day

Each post will also contain a link to my blog, where I will post a short reflection each day to go with the daily message.

Of course, these messages are based on the book that I co-authored with Br. Joseph Schmidt FSC, “Life Lessons from St. Thérèse of Lisieux.” They can help us on the path to emotional maturity and spiritual wisdom, but they do not assume a religious affiliation or belief.

Even if you are not inclined to repost or to tag (like many of you, I’m only a marginal social media citizen) I do hope you will take the opportunity for a few minutes of reflection each day next week, especially if you have not read the book.

Thanks for being part of this experience!

Warmly, Marisa Guerin
