I'm a 22 year old college student. I converted to Catholicism at the age of 18, after making the decision to do so at age 13. It has been the best decision of my life, and probably one of the only times I can truly say I put God first in my life. Ever since I have wondered about my vocation. There have been times I have felt called to be a nun, but other times I have been unable to imagine my future without marriage and a family. I know I want to be a teacher, which is something I can do as a nun or layperson.
I'm just beginning to seriously discern my vocation. Any advice? Thanks!
You may be called to religious life or as you say you may be called to marriage. Is there a Newman club on your college campus? or a Catholic Campus minister? You might see if there is a group of Catholics you can get to know...and connect with. (Or if you are still active in your home parish you might talk to your parish priest) Either way there ought to be someone to talk to you and encourage you in your walk with Christ.
I also converted ( a long time ago and in a state far away to make a poor paraphrase, hmm come to think of it 38 years ago today), I was very interested in religious life and was very happy to find a Catholic group of young people on my college campus. Together we got to know the Church better, went to Mass together and each began discernment in our own way at our own pace... today many of us are in religious life, many are married and some are single for the Lord or some might say single for the sake of the kingdom.
I do hope that you find a priest, nun, sister or group you will be able to talk and interact with.
