The original Saint Theodora children's bookRead more...
Some people know right from the start what they want to be when they grow up. It was that way for Saint Theodora. She was only ten years old when she promised God that she would do whatever God asked of her. She always believed that would be done best by becoming a religious sister. What she did not know was that her promise would take her to the American frontier where she and her fellow sisters founded a school for the higher learning of women and the Sisters of Providence religious community of Indiana, both of which continue to this day, as well as Catholic schools throughout Indiana and Illinois, an orphanage, and free pharmacies. Beautifully illustrated and fun to read, Saint Theodora and Her Promise to God, is an inspiring story of how one little girl followed God's call. Saint Theodora's legacy of faith changed the course of young pioneers in the wilderness of Indiana in the mid-1800s and continues to do so today.
