Welcome to Emily Ann’s Corner

I choose to go by my confirmation name: Emiliana, shortened to Emily. Right now, I’m a 20 year old psychology student. I’m in the last year of my degree and I’m thinking about what to do next. I’m thinking of becoming a nun.

I’ve felt called to religious life for years, but I always brushed the idea away. I thought “I can’t become a nun”, it just didn’t seem like something that was ‘done’. God obviously wasn’t happy with that! Later on I started thinking “I’d join an active order if I joined religious life’, cloistered life just seemed boring. But again, God had other plans. Now, I’m discerning joining a cloistered community.

This isn’t something any one in my life knows about. I don’t feel ready to share it with my friends and family yet and I don’t think they would understand. When the time is right, I know God will give me strength. For now though, I retreat to the internet. I want this blog to show the journey I am taking, whatever path I end up going down.
