Julie McElmurry, M.S., M.A. Walking the Camino of Santiago de Compostela, my intention was to discern attending The Franciscan Institute. Upon my return home from Spain, I accepted the invitation to study there. Surrounded by Franciscan friars and sisters, I worked hard yet often wondered why I was giving years of my life to this. Finally, just as I was graduating, I realized that knowing his writings so well, I could teach other people. Since then, I have given over 100 retreats and presentations, completed seven short documentaries about Franciscan women and edited Living & Serving in the Way of St. Francis. I love helping people realize that these writings are not arcane writings meant for a privileged few. These writings were written in his soul from Francis himself to you.
