Sister Eileen Derrick of the Order of St. Francis lives in a convent at the Franciscan Spirituality and Nature Retreat in Fayetteville, N.Y. That's about as typical as her experience as a nun gets. She serves God by teaching music and running Ponies for Peace, an outreach project through which community members can find peace by riding and grooming her horses.>
