The best book on vocations I've found -- I think there's a lot here that is worth knowing and thinking about regardless of your path or vocation.

It's a short book, almost more of a booklet, but none of it is wasted. This book talks about the different ways in which Catholic women today can explore whether they're being called to religious life, married life, or the single life -- there are stories of women trying to discern their call, stories of women who've made significant changes midlife to answer their call, and even stories of women who decided that the religious life wasn't for them after all. The book also demystifies the different types of contemplative nuns and active sisters, and goes into all the practical details involved of joining a religious community - from the financial matters to higher education to clothing.

The depiction of the spiritual and prayer life of the nuns and sisters in this book would be valuable to any Catholic woman - regardless of age or vocation, you will find inspiration here. ( )
