Day 08 — Your favorite Orthodox monastery
My favorite monastery is St. John the Forerunner Greek Orthodox Monastery. I had the wonderful opportunity to spend a week there for a girls retreat. I can confidently say that it was one of the best weeks of my life! We got to know the nuns, they played some games with us, we did crafts that the nuns do there, and the talks in the chapel. It was wonderful to get a glimpse in to what life is like at a monastery. It was just a wonderful time to pray, talk, and learn so much more about my faith.
