One thing I’ve finally learned…
…after nearly 47 years living in Dominican community: people do their best!
What do I mean? All of us were called by God. To do what? Whatever needed to be done! I was a high school teacher of religion for ten years. I went to summer school during those years to learn more about my faith. Then I discovered that my students were learning things that their parents didn’t know. So I pursued a degree in adult education, and used it in Des Moines, Iowa, Milwaukee and for the congregation.
All that time I lived in Dominican communities, where I was supported in my growth – as a woman, as a teacher, as a learner, as a sister.
Who has supported your growth over the years?
