If you're looking to start the week with a smile, look no further!

A group of sisters have recently shared a TikTok video that gives a little insight into their lives. And it’s not a surprise that it’s captioned “Golly, I love my life.”

The video was uploaded by Sister Bethany from the Daughters of St. Paul and it has garnered nearly 4 million views. You might be thinking it’s a careful curation, but it’s a selection of 27 random videos that were left to auto sync.

The result is delightful. From snippets of the sisters in prayer, in the garden and playing a variety of musical instruments, you’ll see the joy that emanates from these sisters at work and at play.

So take 10 seconds to have a glimpse at these joyful sisters and learn a little more about what life as a religious sister entails — including that tempting tiramisu that an Italian nun made!


Golly, I love my life. #ThankYouJesus @daughtersofstpaul
