Trustful Surrender

Stories of Grace Amidst Crisis

$14.95

About this item

One of the most painful experiences of a Catholic parent is to watch your children grow lukewarm in the Faith or walk away from it entirely. It can lead to feelings of abandonment and despair and turn conversations that were once easygoing into painful occasions of testiness and discord.

In this riveting book, EWTN Radio personalities Jerry Usher and Debbie Georgianni present deeply moving stories from listeners whose loved ones have left the Catholic Church. They are stories of heartache and sacrifice, but also hope and redemption. 

You’ll discover how families have coped — successfully and unsuccessfully — with the fallen-away loved ones, prayed for their return, and worked with the grace of God to reach out and touch their hearts. You’ll learn how they placed their fears and anxieties at the foot of the Cross and implored God with constancy, deep compassion, and unwavering fervor. 

Almost every Catholic today knows someone who has wavered or fallen away from the Faith. These pages will show you how others have successfully dealt with this age-old but rapidly accelerating problem, and why you should never lose hope.

Great book!
I enjoyed reading this book. It was an easy read with short stories of people with a lot of faith and love for their love ones. Very touching stories that make you realize how important it is to pray for our families and friends. I particularly enjoyed reading that EWTN was a big influence for some of them to return to the church. I can relate to this, many shows that I listen to on a daily basis like Take 2, Dr. Ray, Sister Anne, Dr. Anders and many more have changed my life. I recommend this book! You wońt be disappointed.

A book you wish didn’t have an ending. You are left with wanting more!
This book is a must read to bring your faith and courage and drawing you closer to prayer and fasting when you have lost a loved on in the faith or to the new age spirituality. With short sweet to the point stories with a different story line you never get bored. Every story whether it had a good outcome or they are still waiting for a good outcome each story left you with a take home message to better you’re own lives. Every story was so raw, real, and personable that anyone in any watch of faith can find peace and closures to your lost loved ones in who left the family. I learned ri pray and have faith and never give up hope and mostly trust that God is in control! You won’t regret reading it for sure! God bless you

"A COMFORTING AND WELCOME READ"
As a new fan of the TAKE2SHOW with Jerry and Debbie (via EWTN's YouTube Channel) I enthusiastically offered my support by purchasing their new book: TRUSTFUL SURRENDER - Stories of Grace Amidst Crisis. I could have easily read through this book in a single sitting, but decided to break the readings into hour-long sessions scheduled at the end of the day when I am least distracted. I was pleasantly rewarded with the ability to slip into a deep, thoughtful and restful sleep, several nights in a row. The book is comprised of 11 highly personal accounts, submitted by Catholics brave enough to share their familial personal struggles with the rest of us. I find comfort and solace in the realization that my past and current challenges are far from unique, and that with unwavering faith and prayer, all things are possible.

Touching Stories of Faith
I enjoyed this quick read! "Trustful Surrender" will tug at your heartstrings as you read your way through the lives of those who love Christ, and their Catholic faith. You will learn how they cope with the sorrow of knowing that the people who are most dear to them, have chosen another path. There is no shortage of faith among those who are telling their personal accounts, and therefore, there is an abundance of hope that springs forth from every page.
