:wave Hello Everyone.
I am a newbie here..
Okay so I will jump right on in...

I am a Catholic Convert..
I was a Baptist for 22 years, before that I never went to Church, I was not raised going to church ,and my family was not religious..
Only when My Son was born that my life turned around.
I was a sinner saved by the Grace of God, I did things in my past I was not happy with and today thinking about them makes me sick to my stomach..
I grew up in an abusive home and well basically I hated the world, even after I got married I had this HUGE chip on my shoulders, I could not trust NO ONE, the first few years of my marriage I did not even trust my own husband. I loved him but not trust him..
Only when my Son as born that things changed...I let My Heavenly Father into my life..
When I was Baptized into the Baptist Faith after a few years I felt miserable, empty,in complete until one day I turned on the TV and there she was...
Mother Angelica,I was fixing to change the channel but there was something about her that made me stop dead in my tracks, and put the remote down..
As I watched her more and more I was so FULL of FATHER ,took my breath away..so I started watching more, then one day I finally got the courage up enough to talk to my Husband,(He is still Baptist) and to my surprise son and I had his support, so I started the Rosary, reading everything I could, We started RCIA with MUCH excitement...

Then this past Easter 2019 for me August 2019 for Son we were finally Home totally as we say...
To me the richness of the Catholic faith and the joy it brings to my life isn’t something I can begin to tackle in the length of a blog post. But knowing that Son and I are beginning the same journey thrills me.

Us converting to Catholic have not just switched our denominations, We ARE coming face-to-face with Jesus as part of a community that stretches across the globe and into heaven. A community that goes back more than 2,000 years, unbroken. And Christ himself has promised that the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.

I think that’s something to celebrate and to all new converts, I rejoice with you!
