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(more...)

St. Francis de Sales, pray for us!
This book is not easy to read - I think all of St. Francis de Sales' writings require a lot of brain power to understand - but it is very good in small doses. I'll read a page out of the book and "chew" on it for the rest of the day. It's definitely meaty. In a good way. He is a saint who encourages simplicity and peacefulness, which is what we all need!

More wisdom from the Gentle Doctor
In this short book, Saint Francis de Sales helps the Christian to discern God's Will. While this is no small order, the height of perfection in the Christian life is indeed nothing other than simply willing only what God wills and making your will conform to His. Known for his gentleness yet solidness in teaching, St Francis de Sales gives us practical, every day advice in order to help us not only discern God's Will, but abandon ourselves to it.

Helpful for all!
This is a wonderful, practice, and easy book for anyone wanting to grow in holiness. It is written by not only a saint, but a doctor of the Church. Furthermore, Saint de Sales has a simplicity and gentleness that makes him attractive to ALL Christians, whether they be beginners, advanced, simple in their spirituality, or anything else. I highly recommend the book.

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.
