    • Diana,
      I encourage you to go forward, whether writing is meant to be a career or something that you are not sure where it leads. If you feel “called” to write, I encourage you to give it a try! For those of us who are called, it’s an amazing adventure, and there’s nothing else quite like it. There are definitely many challenges and difficulties, so if it’s not meant for you, you will have plenty of opportunities to give it a second thought! (or third, or fourth) You can’t lose by giving it a try; at the very least it can be a great learning experience.




    • Anne,

      Thank you for your prayers and support! It was a wonderful evening, full of inspiring stories, laughter, and good food.

      God bless you on your journey, too.

  4. I would dearly love to see a sort of online version of this! I am currently discerning my own call but do not have the funds for travel or even access to the Internet often, but I have been blessed to find the Daughters of St. Paul on Facebook and this blog! I live in a small cabin in the mountains of Idaho as a bit of a hermit and working with a spiritual director, and though I believe I am called to the contemplative life, I am awed and humbled by the joy and love these Sisters pour out online, and how much work they put into using social media to help young women like me learn to LISTEN for and to God with open and joyful hearts! Thank you Sisters! May the Lord continue to grant you the grace to proclaim His Love and Mercy to our broken world! Please keep me in your prayers 🙂

    • Dear Emily,
      Doing an online version is an intriguing idea! Maybe if we could all see the movie individually, then get together online at an arranged time for a Skype call or a Google hangout? I will say that “Discernment at the Movies” is a really good way to think about, learn about, and see how discernment can be lived in all walks of life.

      Also, do you know about my other blog, http://www.CoAuthorYourLifewithGod.com, which specifically focuses on discernment? If you don’t, I hope you can visit when you have the opportunity. The blog will eventually turn into a book (I’m working on that in my spare moments), but in the meantime, I’m still posting weekly about discernment.

      In the meantime, you will be in my prayers as you continue discerning your vocation! Please pray for me, too.

      God bless you,
      Sr. Marie Paul


  5. Thank you for directing me to your discernment blog. Sister. It has made me feel more welcome and worthy of the call God has for me in whatever state of life He calls me to and answered some questions and doubts already!

    May He continue to make your vocation so fruitful! You and your community are in my prayers, and I am very grateful for your prayers 🙂
