After 20 years of serving in communications ministry for Catholic Sisters (much of it supporting vocations), it became clear to Susan Flansburg that a guide for inquirers and discerners into religious life was desperately needed.
A “one-stop shop” of critical but hard-to-find insights and information, Feels Like Home was written with and for vocation directors from across the country. Their contributions form the heart of the book as they share what it means to belong to a range of institutes, from apostolic and monastic to habited, cloistered, and missionary.
A frequent contributor to many faith-based publications - including Vision Vocation, Horizon journal, and multiple Catholic religious institutes - Susan also writes for non-profit organizations from health care to higher education.
