NunRun in the News


I didn’t know how God would bless this NunRun adventure. The greatest joy for me is to know of the countless people praying for and with me as I get closer to freely answering God’s call.

  1. I heard your story on NPR and it made my day. I was pleasantly impressed with the way you handled yourself and intelligently explained Marian concepts to a secular news source. Thank you for giving a kind, intelligent face to the Church I love.


    I just saw your story on CNS and blogged about it for I’d love to get your comments on our story, Sticker shock, about the high price of Catholic colleges and universities. It talks a bit about this problem of debts. I’ve seen so many of my friends struggle with this issue, even if they’re not joining a religious order.

    Good luck!
