Her dream to become a nun started when she was still a child. But somewhere along the way, Elaine Marie Factor forgot about this dream. Until one day, it resurfaced through a vision.

At 24 years old, Elaine finally decided to enter a religious congregation to fulfill her childhood dream. Besides experiencing overwhelming joys and challenges in the different aspects of her life, she also faced a series of encounters with her true self and her greatest Love. What she gained in the four corners of the convent was way beyond what she had expected.

Based on the journal entries Elaine wrote from her old study desk to the rickety table in her room at the convent, this memoir will take you on a journey of discovering your greatest call, taking unexpected detours, and finding the path to your true destiny.



"When anyone feels a strong interior calling to serve the Lord, that calls for discernment. In her narrative, Finding You, Elaine Factor takes us through her personal journey into the religious life. What she found is that sometimes Jesus takes a long distance out of our way so we can come back a shorter way to complete inner freedom. A must-read for anyone seeking God in difficult decision." - Fr. Bob McConaghy, Spiritual Director, Author
