Teen girls and young women will find a wealth of wisdom in this 16-page booklet by Mother Clare Matthiass, CFR (Franciscan Sisters of the Renewal). It’s prayerfully written for young women who are exploring religious life and need guidance in their discernment. It’s divided into easily-understood subsections that walk women through listening to God’s call, visiting religious communities, and seeking help from others.
Perfect for youth ministry, campus ministry, Catholic high schools, and youth events. This is the booklet that the Franciscan University of Steubenville gives to teen girls at their popular summer Youth Conferences.
