MKE, a free weekly newspaper in Mil-town, did an article about me and it was published this week!
Amid all of the coolness there were three notably cool things about this:
1. The reporter reads my blog and that's how she heard about me.
The blog mission is WORKING! Oh yes...I have a mission for this blog (Of course I do...I'm me and I'm one of these goal-y, mission-y people.) and apparently it's successful. WOO HOO!
2. Her questions were really good and appropriate for a 20-30 something audience
Like she REALLY wanted to know about what it's like to be a Sister and how in the heck that works for someone like me. My favorite part was when she said, "My friends and I read your blog and it makes me want to join." C'mon...let's go! You know I invited her to consider the possibility! I don't know that many 20-30 somethings have come into much contact with Religious women in the grand scheme of things.
3. It's not a ME thing, it's a WE thing; I get to talk about the School Sisters and spread the news of how wonderful WE ARE.
That's what I'm most passionate about...religious life and my community. Anyone wants to sit and talk to me about that...great...I could talk all day. Why would I do this with my life? WHY WOULDN'T I? I couldn't imagine living any other way. My community? Well...yes the title of this blog is Religious Life Rocks, but underneath that is the School Sisters who really really ROCK. Giving access to people that wouldn't necessarily have come into contact with our mission and our life together is pretty neat.
Enjoy! (Click the title of this blog entry for the linkage :-) )
