A number of people have asked me to share “my story” with them. By “story” I’m referring to my decision to join the Catholic Church in July, 2002. I know some of my Protestant friends are still baffled by Scott’s and my decision to become Catholic, though they love and accept us nonetheless. Other friends have found it harder to accept us and our decision. Some of our acquaintances have expresesd a genuine interest in understanding what led us to take this step of faith.
I’ve decided I will do my best to put into writing the journey that brought me to the Catholic Church. This endeavor actually serves another purpose; I’ve often wanted to record our journey for my children. I want them to know what we believe and why we believe it.
It’s hard to know exactly where to begin because my decision to become Catholic is part of my lifelong faith journey. To understand where someone is you have to know where they’ve been. I will give some “Clif Notes” here and there and go into more detail when I think it will be more helpful. I will have to do this in installments. You can find these installments listed on pages sidebar.
