What would make a small town girl from Arkansas become a Catholic? Growing up I knew approximately two Catholics. In my mind it was a fascinating but strange religion that had something to do with statues, beads, candles, and maybe the mafia. I certainly never envisioned this faith for me or for my family. Yet, here we are Catholic and loving it.
As it turns out we aren’t alone in finding ourselves in a Church we never imagined. Countless people from a variety of faith traditions have converted to Catholicism (for reasons other than marriage). They all have a unique and compelling story. Recently I was asked to share mine on Our Catholic Way.
It was a lot of fun. If you would like to check it out, click on this link!
