Stirring Up Beauty and Prayers For the Lord
The word of "sister" has a variety of meanings. From the girl you were raised with to a very dear friend, it is almost always used to describe a most treasured relationship. Another type of sister takes sacred vows in a religious order, a lifestyle that for most of us is shrouded in mystery. Last month at the Conference of Handcrafted Soapmakers, I met up with one such sister — Sister Cathleen Marie Timberlake** of the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration in Clyde, Missouri. In addition to a life of prayer and devotion to God, Sister Cathleen Marie makes and sells handmade soap.
How cool is that? You can purchase Sister Cathleen Marie's soaps and body care products at Monastery Creations.
I am always fascinated to meet entrepreneurs from different walks of life. Until Sister Cathleen Marie, I had never encountered one who so eloquently combined her mission as a person of faith with her mission as a person of business. I am inspired and impressed.
What do you think?

**Due to "technical difficulties," Sister Cathleen Marie's name is misspelled in the video, and I managed to say it incorrectly a few times. Rather than leave Sister Cathleen's inspiring story on the editing room floor, I hope you will overlook my flaws and see into the heart of this incredible and inspiring woman.
