Travel Journal
  • We meet up with long-time friends of A Nun’s Life, Betsy and Melissa! Despite the rain as we're on the San Antonio River Walk, we’re in good spirits—it’s awesome to hang out with people we’ve met through our chatroom!
  • At the Incarnate Word motherhouse, we take a tour of the chapel bell tower. We climb the ladder to the top, in our dress clothes and heels!
  • “Called to be God’s love in the world” is a theme on the podcast. Our guests, Sister Germaine and Sister Adriana, share how incarnational spirituality shapes their lives.
  • On the way out of town, Betsy insists (OK, maybe it was us) that we stop at BUC-EE’s, a popular convenience store.It's a more than oasis on a long stretch of highway--it’s a spectacle of snacks and Texas souvenirs.
