Item Description...
Overview
In an easy, conversational style, the author, a nun for over 40 years, gives readers the facts and fictions of the monastic life: how the choice is made; what lies behind the vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience; the nuts and bolts of monastic calling; what monks and nuns do all day; how they support themselves; and why they live as they do. Brushing away the stereotypes of sainthood, she provides an enlightening glimpse into a vibrant female subculture that is richly diverse, faith-filled, and often supremely rewarding.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
read it  Jul 24, 2009
This is a thoughtful, moving, provocative, evocative book. It weaves the overarching and the little into a grounded and appealing sharing of what it is to live together and apart. The books describes the real difficulties as well as the joys of vowed community life and makes clear its demands for flexibility, self-understanding, and -- this is pure Ellen Stephen -- ultimately, love.
 
Excellent Introduction to the Religious Life  Apr 7, 2009
One fine Wednesday evening in November 1986 our pastor led a small group of five of us on a "field trip" to the Order of St. Helena's convent in the Capitol Hill district of Seattle. After Vespers we went into the living room for a Q & A session with Sister Ellen Stephen.

Having little prior exposure to churches, let alone convents and monasteries, I was extremely curious about this fascinating place and the people who lived there. One by one three questions popped into my head that I asked the author:

1. Why is the convent here? My hunch is it serves as an example for society. Is that correct?
2. Are the sisters the people in your life whom you can discuss anything with? Are they your closest friends?
3. When deciding to become a nun, did you ever have doubts?

In this wonderful memoir Ellen Stephen addresses these and many more questions in much greater detail than time could allow in one evening. I heartily recommend this book to anyone with a healthy, open-minded intellectual curiosity about the world and life in general.
