Sister Nancy Jurecki entered the convent right after high school, but when it came time for her to take her vows, she decided to leave and return when she felt she was ready. During her time away, she finished college, worked with the mentally disabled, fostered children, and dated. But after 23 years away from life of the convent, several people asked her if she ever thought about being a nun, and she knew it was time to return to her first calling.
