Whatever Your Stage of Life

"Whether married, religious, single, consecrated, or widowed," says today's post at The Feminine Gift, "we all have a primary vocation to holiness.  Nancy Shuman, of The Cloistered Heart book and blog, writes about how we can fulfill that vocation by making our lives a cloister - a total consecration - where 'God is loved and lived for and served.'  We feel greatly blessed that Nancy will be sharing this way of living for Christ with us once a month..."

I am deeply honored to be guest writing for The Feminine Gift, a blog that speaks to women in all ages and stages of life.  And if you've ever wondered what "the cloistered heart" was all about, the post there will hopefully provide a brief initial overview.  You can click here to visit The Feminine Gift.... whatever your stage of life!
