Sister Jean has become an icon in the world of college basketball, serving as the chaplain for Loyola University’s men’s basketball team since 1994. But in “Wake Up with Purpose!” she shares the story of her entire century-long life, from teaching at a Catholic school during World War II to serving on a Chicago college campus in the sixties and beyond. Along the way, she imparts timeless lessons on love, faith, and purpose that will leave you feeling uplifted and empowered.

One of the most impressive things about Sister Jean is her sharp mind and sense of humor, which comes through on every page of “Wake Up with Purpose!” She has seen so much change in her 102 years of life, but she always finds the humor and joy in every situation. Even as she cheers from the sidelines of a men’s basketball tournament in March 2018, she is still taking time to meet with Loyola students who stop by her office. Her wisdom and humor are infectious and will leave you feeling energized and ready to take on the world.

The book is co-written by Seth Davis, an award-winning writer and broadcaster, and his collaboration with Sister Jean is truly magical.
