Allow me to share...
Why did a nice (that's subjective), life-long Southern Baptist girl from Kentucky convert to the Catholic faith along with her husband? It was a long journey that I never fathomed taking nor welcomed at times.
It's not as if I chose it, like someone decides between vacationing in Europe vs. taking an Alaskan cruise. It came seemingly out of nowhere like a sudden, gentle breeze and I was impressed to follow it. In the beginning I never believed it would lead to a life of incense and crucifixes, but often isn't that the way the Holy Spirit moves? He catches us by surprise.
This site is devoted to family and friends, both old and new, who want to better understand this journey we've taken. Read more of my faith journey and enjoy my blog. Also, please check out my podcast where I regularly visit with other Catholics, many of whom are converts, who are passionate about their faith.
If you're on the journey, perhaps just starting, you'll find the books and TV programs listed in recommended media extremely helpful. They're the ones that helped us!
I think you'll discover that "Our Catholic Way" isn't so unlike yours if you're already a Christ follower. As for the differences...watch out...they may just draw you in.
