Hi, guys —

I'm a college freshmen, and all my life I've wanted to be a lawyer, get married, and have beautiful children, however for the past few years, and even more so now, I've been getting this constant thought of being a nun in the back of my head.

  • Is there any way to do both the nun vocation and my planned lawyer career?
  • If not, how else can I dedicate myself to God?

I already go to church every week, and I am a cantor in my parish.

I just don't feel close enough.


  { Is there any way I can fulfill both my vocation as a nun and my vocation as a lawyer with a family? }
