As a young child I saw religious in habit, and as other girls thought of wedding dresses, I thought of habits. I saw such beauty and wonder. I was drawn to religious sisters. When I was 17 I had a radical encounter with the Holy Spirit and God’s powerful love. My response was to seek His will for my life. So I asked the Lord to show me. As I sought the Lord in prayer, the excitement I had as a child about sisters was enkindled and I was open to the vocation to the consecrated life. After discerning different communities I joined the Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ in 2006. The main draw to the DLJC was our charismatic spirituality and personal relationship with God.
Most Special Moment
One is, getting to see Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI at World Youth Day in Australia as a novice. Secondly, is when I was lying prostrate during the Litany of the Saints during my final vows, before God, my Community, family and friends.
Words of Encouragement
What comes to mind is the scripture which says, “God is faithful,” He is the one who calls, if it is His will there will be grace upon grace. Do not be afraid. God wants your happiness.
