Wake Up with Purpose! By Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt AudioBook Summary
Known to millions as simply “Sister Jean,” the Loyola Chicago matriarch and college basketball icon invites you into her remarkable memoir filled with history, wonder, and common-sense wisdom for this century and beyond. As Sister Jean wisely says, “I’ve seen so many changes in the last 102 years, but the important things remain the same.”
Part life story, part philosophy text, and part spiritual guide, Sister Jean’s wit, wisdom, and common sense has broad appeal and application that transcends religious creed, belief, and even feelings on Loyola’s basketball team.
Along with her collaborator Seth Davis, an award-winning writer, broadcaster and New York Times best-selling author, Wake Up with Purpose! lets you experience:
- Sister Jean’s words and her spirit.
- her sharp sense of humor.
- life lessons gleaned from one hundred years of living.
- universal themes that connect us all.
- priceless wisdom.
The driving force inside Wake Up with Purpose! is the narrative of Sister Jean’s fascinating life—from teaching at a Catholic school during the Second World War to serving on a Chicago college campus in the sixties and beyond to cheering from the sidelines of a men’s basketball tournament in March 2018.
