Girlfriends Guide to Divorce recap episode 2:  “Rule #174: Never Trust Anyone Who Charges By the Hour”

The Sisterhood episode 4 recap: Let talk about sex

The Sisterhood Lifetime episode 4

In the fourth episode of Lifetime’s The Sisterhood: Becoming Nuns, the women are hitting some bumps, struggling, being torn in opposite directions. In other words, yep, they are doing everything right. Discernment is messy and bumpy, and the women are starting to feel that.  Internal and external struggles are making themselves known at this point.  I find the women’s courage incredible to share some of those moments with the public — it’s a rare gift to actually hear what the struggle sounds like in others. And it’s the uncomfortable that lights the firecracker underneath people to make a move toward (or … Continue reading

The Sisterhood episode 3 recap: Movin' Right Along

On this week’s The Sisterhood on Lifetime, the girls are off to their next discernment adventure! I’m sure those fifteen days with the Carmelites flew by. I’m torn on this point; I’m glad they are visiting 3 different congregations (not thrilled that the 3 chosen aren’t reflective of the ‘spectrum’ of congregational flavors), and in an already abbreviated period of exploration, they get 15 days to choose a community? I’m crossing my fingers that the intent is “exposure” and exploring — “would I like to continue discerning religious life” in general —not a specific congregation. It was nice to see … Continue reading
