In the midst of preparing for a religious vocation, God surprised me. He upended my life in a single day when I met Michael, my future husband. I was secretly disappointed I was not going to be a nun because I imagined myself embracing a heroic calling. I literally felt a sinking feeling when I surrendered my grandiose schemes and dreams, even though I knew without a doubt marriage to this man was the will of God.
Now, I have to laugh because marriage is a powerful vocation with the potential to transform us into saints
