Author seeks solace, finds meaning at monastery

Religion reporter Judy Valente first visited Mount St. Scholastica Monastery in Kansas to teach but decided to stay as a student. Her time at the monastery offered her a chance to reflect on how her spiritual life was disrupted by other challenges in her life. Her new book, Atchison Blue: A Search for Silence, a Spiritual Home, and a Living Faith, contains key lessons from her experience and she shares some with us. (Photo: courtesy of Judith Valente)
