Description

"God will write through you." Those were almost the last private words Mother Teresa spoke to acclaimed filmmaker Christina Stevens ~ urging her to share her story with the world. A similar calling had come months earlier, when Mother Teresa appeared to Christina in a dream, summoning her to India to film her message to the world. Without hesitation, she gathered a film crew and boarded a plane for Calcutta. Little did she know that when destiny beckons and a Saint-to-be takes your hand, startling events and profound discoveries are around every corner. Told through the lens of Christina’s colorful youth, her mind-expanding adventure may prod you to recognize your own life’s calling, and that will lead you to the most powerful and transformative place in the cosmos ~ love.

"The words and the teachings of Mother Teresa have greatly impacted my life for many years. As a young girl, it was her teachings that awakened my spirit and later sparked my interest to become a nun. Mother Teresa . . . has profoundly influenced my spiritual foundation and is my philosophy for living. Like me, you have been led by the greatest gift of all—love. I can now add Love: The Saint and the Seeker as a contributing tome to my spiritual evolution and growth."
