Pax et Bonum
Peace and All Good! My name is Elisabeth and I arrived in Peoria just a few short weeks ago. I am came to Illinois from Michigan. After completing a bachelor’s degree in Special Education, I worked for a brief time at a nursing home as a recreation therapy assistant. I have known for a number of years that God has wanted me to become a religious, wanted me for Himself. I figured that youth was such an impressionable time. What better way could I use that other than give it to God for His glory! I feel abundantly blessed to be on a journey to the Divine with such a beautiful group of sisters!
My daily schedule has been packed with Mass, prayers, classes, and volunteering at the children’s hospital. I have been adjusting to convent life, as well. While I watch the world around me begin blossom and turn to spring, I reflect on the new springtime in my own life- a time of rebirth and newness.
