Hello folks, after lurking for quite awhile decided it's time to make an introduction. Like others here I am a mother and grandmother and former teacher. I was educated in catholic elementary and high school with the old Baltimore catechism. A cradle catholic, always a believer but not always the best catholic....in fact I was really beginning to question if the Catholic church was the true church when so many things were changing and I was hearing buddhist teachings from the pulpit.

It was not until my non-catholic husband started looking into protestantism, that I realized I needed to bone up quick! Thanks be to God, that was just when all the catholic apologists like Mr. Ray started writing and creating their marvelous websites.

Too make a long story short my husband came into the church in 2001 in his late 50's.....and I became a much better and more knowledgeable catholic because of this. A good lesson was learned too. Never stop praying for someone's conversion. God is full of surprises. :D

Have enjoyed my time lurking here and look forward to becoming more active.....still have much to learn and, I hope, something to offer too......blessings to each of you...chrism (as in chrism oil)

ps hello to some of my friends from other boards.

Glad to see you "talking".

Great story of faith and encouragement and confirmation of God's mysterious workings for our own good. Beyond human planning.

I am a convert and my education continues through DCF.

Hi, welcome to the board. One suggestion I have on starting posting is to post briefly in the Pub or Catholicism 101 on topics you know about. I have been answering threads for awhile on this board, and they very friendly to newbies.
