Franciscan Flowers Prayers & Poetry by Sr. La Donna M. Pinkelman O.S.F.
I am a member of the Sisters of St. Francis Congregation of Our Lady of Lourdes. God is my life and my all. With great joy, I desire to share my love for Him.
My life, as a Franciscan, has led me to be a woman of prayer, a professional woman, who taught, directed Religious Education, directed a retreat center, gave retreats, and was active as a Spiritual Director. I have been a Certified Chaplain, working in health care for 20 years. I worked as a team member of our Franciscan Spirituality Center, and gave presentations to Sisters, and public at large. My community has always been a great blessing to me.
For many years, I did prayer journaling, and received many poems and prayers. I have been encouraged to publish them. Franciscan Flowers is a way to share God's gifts and hopefully, to evangelize along the way.
