I returned to the US about a year ago after spending three years on Mt Athos. I was a novice at one of the monasteries there for all of that time but for various reasons decided to return to the world. I'm not sure how much of the details I should share in public so forgive the lack of them
. One of the reasons that I returned was that I couldn't make a decision as to whether or not I wish to be a monastic or married (I went when I was 20 and am now 24). Fortunately my family has been supportive of me since returning and has been helping me for this past year. I am planning on going back to school, but have run into some difficulties in the application process (I would be going to a university overseas and so there are a lot of hoops to jump through regarding documents, getting them translated and other things). Please pray that I am able to get everything together both application-wise and financially and go to school this year and get my life back on track. Sorry if my post is a little incoherent, I'm a little embarrassed about sharing this with others and asking for prayers
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your prayers.
