If ya’ll have not checked it out yet, you should go over to Pete Sock’s blog The Catholic Book Blogger to see the review that he did of The Prodigal You Love: Inviting Loved Ones Back to the Church.

He also has a giveaway going on now that you can enter for the chance to win a signed copy of the book.

And yesterday he posted an interview that he did with me about evangelization, discernment and my conversion story.

Here’s a sneak peak:

PETE: How much did your journey back to the church play a part in the writing of this book?

SR. THERESA NOBLE: I can’t really imagine what kind of person I would be if I had not left the Church, become an atheist and then returned. But I think it is unlikely that I would have written this book.

When I was growing up and difficult things would happen, my mom always used to tell me: “Make lemonade out of lemons.”  Well, God has the best lemonade stand ever. He brings good from the bitterest of experiences. He enters our hells, takes us by the hand and leads us out. And then, because he is the best Father ever, he gives us a ring, the finest of robes and throws a party (Lk 15:22). God can make our lives better than they would have been had we not made the mistakes we made. I think my book is an example of that. From the darkness of my choices, God brought light not only for me but, I pray, for others as well.

A big thanks to Pete!
