Default Confused about my vocation

Hi. I am a fifteen year old girl. I have been praying about my vocation a lot. I feel called to both marriage and the religious life, and I am so confused. I don't know which God wants from me. I am going to a week long retreat for girls considering the religious life and I am very excited, and I hope that will shed some light, but in the mean time I am so confused and frustrated. I think God is just telling me to be patient for now, but I am having a lot trouble doing so. Any advice and prayers are more than welcome.

It's very normal to feel attracted to two vocations. I was confused for a long time before I discerned what my vocation is. Going on retreats is excellent for discernment. Cultivate a good prayer life and most importantly be open to God's will!

It is always worth investigating religious life and seeing if God then speaks to you. I don't know how much you know about religious life or if you feel called to apostolic or contemplative life but you have nothing to lose by investigating it!

I know what you mean. I have had the same boyfriend for four years and love him very much but the last two years I have felt God calling me to become a Nun.just keep praying and remember to let God be in controll.
