"Spending time with Mother Teresa and her Missionaries of Charity enriched my life, and I want to share Mother's warm spirit, wisdom and unconditional love.

The life of Mother Teresa and the work of her Missionaries of Charity have inspired millions. This intimate portrait, drawn by a woman who worked with Mother Teresa and was encouraged to write about the experience, uses primary sources and personal anecdotes to bring the real Mother Teresa to vivid life.

In relating her own stories about Mother Teresa, Maryanne Raphael illustrates the life-changing potential of Mother's insight and wisdom. More than mere biography, What Mother Teresa Taught Me is an engaging primer on living a more Christian life.
