Sr. Barb Giehl is also a mother and a grandmother. In this clip she discusses her "amazing, amazing blessing" — being offered a second vocation in life as a Sister of Mercy. 

She talks about some of the challenges involved with living in community. Challenge No. 1? "People trying to understand why a woman in their 60s would even want to consider religious life."
