Find God's plan for your life and savor the peaceful certainty that you are on the path He has personally chosen for you.

If your life seems to make no sense, or if you don’t know which path to take, St. Francis de Sales will console and inform you. In this warm little book, he explains to you what God’s will is and how He reveals it — yes, even to you, and even in the seemingly random events of your life.

No matter what you’re going through now (or may have gone through), you’ll see why you should love and trust in God’s will — and long for its fulfillment. Best of all, you’ll learn a sure method for discovering God’s will in any situation — today!

As you begin to discern God’s loving hand even in seemingly chaotic events, St. Francis de Sales will lead your mind and your heart to the still waters of God’s gentle consolation.

From St. Francis de Sales you’ll learn:

  • Four signs that your heart conforms to God’s will — does yours?
  • How to accept God’s will even when it seems terrifying and painful
  • Sacred inspirations: not just for the prophets. The many ways God may be knocking on your door -- now!
  • Changing your life’s direction: how to spot and avoid all-too-common dangers
  • The simple rule of charity: how it can help you make vital decisions
  • Are you as mature in the virtues as God wills you to be?
  • How to distinguish zeal for God’s will from selfish arrogance
  • Three ways you can recognize a thought or sentiment that comes from God
  • The key ingredient that makes all your actions pleasing to God: can you name it?
  • Making decisions: practical advice to help you distinguish between times when you should move slowly and carefully, and when you should act quickly, without undue time for deliberation

    Speaks directly to the dilemmas faced by modern men and women
    This book is a wonderful guide for anyone asking, Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going?
    
    Although the text is from the 17th century, there is nothing "medieval" about it. The prose is modern and every accessible, and the ideas and advice are more apropos today than ever.
    
    I would not change anything in my life without first meditating on the counsel St. Frances provides here.

    Great spiritual and psychological insight
    I love reading this saint's works because of his practical and insightful writings. He seems to be able to shine a light on psychological motivations, rationalizations and defenses, and to carefully examine them in the rays of truth. Sometimes it feels like he's almost ruthlessly piecing through and blowing all my cover. 
    
    He gives a mini-medieval version of a time management class, with Christ at the center. Much of his work is very practical, and makes you look at yourself very carefully. A book that deserves a thoughtful and slow read.
