Hi! I'm Mary. I am a cradle Catholic. I love my faith. Before I became a mom I was a Youth Minister. Now, I stay home with my 15 month old baby girl. I love it, but I have to admit, I let my faith run a little dry these past 15 months.

This is my first post on this site. I'm not a frequent user of message boards, but a few weeks ago, I quite by accident found myself on a primarily atheistic board. Some of the message titles caught my eye, and I read on. They talked a lot about Intelligent Design, embryonic stem cell research, religious (faith-based) relationships, etc... They were saying horrible things about God and our Catholic faith and the sanctity of life. I couldn't help but want to tell them the Truth. Well, this lead to some very heated debate. The angry language that was used in response to my posts was offensive and hurtful. At Mass a few days ago, it became clear to me that I could no longer hang around on that message board. I decided I needed to surround myself with some people who basically know and love God. So here I am.

I look forward to meeting you all. :)

Mary:

Welcome to the Board! I too went through a period of time where my relationship with God went stale. I look forward to reading your posts.

A hearty welcome and I hope you will find support and encouragement here.

I think you will, in fact, I'm sure of it.

I am a convert who began as a Methodist, later became a Lutheran (Missouri Synod), and finally discovered the true Church, with the help of the Holy Spirit of course. Long story short, I became a Catholic without even intending to do so. I thought I had all I needed as a Protestant. God showed me differently.
