Inspires #ThankANun Social Media Movement (Video Extra)

It took John Schlimm seven years to write the story of his special friendship with an elderly religious sister named Sister Augustine. His book, FiveYears In Heaven: The Unlikely Friendship that Answered Life's Greatest Questions will be released May 5, 2015. In this video interview, he tells Zoe Romanowsky about the greatest lesson he learned from Sister Augustine and discusses a social media event called #ThankANun, being launched on the same day of the book's release, which invites people to post messages and tributes on social media to religious sisters who have made a difference in their lives.
