Everyone is searching for the deeper meaning of life. What was I made for? Am I doing what I am “supposed” to do? Am I really happy?
I remember going through my college years thinking: “I want to help people achieve their greatest potential, whatever that may be in their work place.” I pursued my doctoral studies in Human Resources Development to fulfill that desire. God surprised me, however, in fulfilling this desire to the max with a vocation to become a Daughter of St Paul!
I have discovered over the years – and with much gratitude – the treasure of who we are and what we do. Quite simply: we introduce people to Jesus so that they may personally encounter him in their lives and come to experience fullness of life in him. How do we do this? By being His Hands, His Feet, His Voice and allowing Him to live in us so that others may meet Him. We stand on “pulpits” of social media, books, music, movies, apps. We live excitedly proclaiming that “we hit the jackpot…God is real!”
In the end, things worked out even better than I thought: I help people achieve their greatest potential by introducing them to the most important person they need to know – Jesus, our Way, Truth and Life.
