Good day to all,

Just wanted to stop by and introduce myself. I'm a Catholic convert (2008) and was good ole southern Baptist for many years. The Catholic faith has been on my heart for a long time since my sister converted back in '91. She's been in my ear about it and when I met my 2nd wife (thru eharmony, Laura who is Catholic), we decided to get married in the Catholic faith. It took close to a year to go thru the annulment process but it was well worth the wait & something I'll never forget.

We have a ten year old daughter, Lexi, that is our miracle baby (Laura had 2 miscarriages/DNC's) and I am blessed beyond measure. Not to say that life's been perfect or that I have been a great Catholic. It's been an up & down ordeal, more so for me than my wife (she's a saint). My struggles include alcohol, temper & lustful thoughts. Reconciliation is my outlet that I am so thankful for and praying the rosary.

Once I became a Catholic I joined the Knight of Columbus and I'm a 3rd degree Knight. Besides working at a shipyard, I coach soccer for high school and a travel/club as well, so my time spent (besides with family) is on a pitch somewhere. I have a national USSF "D" license and have been coaching for over 30 years. I've coached from youth on up to D1 soccer (women) and continue to coach girls soccer.

Anyways, I was looking for a place to share and grow in the faith along with asking for prayers and/or praying for others as well. Thank you and God Bless.

On lust thoughts God says; ‘When’ you do. Maybe if you try to write down when they happen it will help you obey. Try to make your path in that straight.
And welcome.
