18 Following God’s Call God has a plan for us all. No matter what vocation we are called to, God wants us to be saints. Read about two saints who were called to different vocations. Think about how they used their gifts to serve God.

19 Thomas More Thomas was a lawyer and writer from London, England. For awhile, he considered becoming a monk, but he changed his mind when he met Jane Colt. Thomas married Jane, and together they had four children, Elizabeth, Margaret, Cicely and John. Thomas made sure that his daughters received just as good of an education as is son, this was rare because girls were not usually educated in England during the 1500s. Thomas taught all his children the importance of putting God first in your life. Sadly, Jane died young and Thomas remarried Alice Middleton. Alice’s husband had died and she had a daughter of her own. Together they raised their 5 children. Thomas More wrote a very famous book called “Utopia”. That book caught the attention of King Henry VIII, the King of England and Thomas became one of his closest advisors. Click the link below to finish the story of St. Thomas More
