From the Back Cover "Behold a rare, insightful, and inspiring book filled with spiritual treasures. Thank you, Megan Don, for connecting us with this divine being who reflects the love of heaven. May everyone who reads this wonderful volume be blessed and uplifted."
-- Alan Cohen, author of I Had It All the Time

"Megan Don has written a beautiful and most helpful book on Teresa of Avila. I especially like the way it is laid out in short meditations for daily use. I would think that many would find this book very helpful in praying with St. Teresa of Avila."
-- John Michael Talbot, Founder, Spiritual Father, and General Minister of Little Portion Hermitage, Arkansas

"We have long needed someone to bring Teresa of Avila out of the rarefied air and into the world that we all inhabit. That is where Teresa herself lived, where the Gospel lives, and where Megan Don is leading us!"
-- Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Founding Director of the Center for Action and Contemplation

"Megan Don has shared her own contemplation with a journey into Teresa of Avila, the great Carmelite mystic. To all who search for the limitless love of God in a deep relationship of prayer and hope, I commend these meditations as providing valuable spiritual nourishment and encouragement."
-- Denis J. Hart, Archbishop of Melbourne, Australia

"An absorbing and enormously helpful introduction to the spiritual insights of St. Teresa of Avila."
-- Amy Welborn, author of The Words We Pray: Discovering the Richness of Traditional Catholic Prayers

"Megan Don has clearly allowed the spiritual vision of Teresa of Avila to inhabit her life. In Falling into the Arms of God she uses the poignant vision of Teresa to craft a series of metaphoric guideposts for the honest seeker. It is, if one can imagine such a thing, a book of practical mysticism, and it will be a gift to readers seeking a blending of timeless spiritual principles and modern psychological understanding."
-- Kent Nerburn, author of Make Me an Instrument of Your Peace: Living in the Spirit of the Prayer of St. Francis
