On August 2, 2006, I started a blog: This Catholic Journey. I used the blog to detail my conversion into the Catholic Church from the non-denominational Christianity I grew up in and loved so dearly. I needed an outlet to reveal all that I was learning so quickly and all the changes taking place in my heart. My eyes had been opened to the serious lack of unity and authority within Christianity. I was looking for truth. I was looking for the authority Christ had clearly given the apostles and the unity He called us to as Christians.
It actually started with a very dark time... a "dark night of the soul", if you will. Study, prayer and some honest-to-God light bulb moments where I felt the Holy Spirit was opening up my eyes and heart are what drew me to read early Christian writings, dig deeper into the roots of Christianity and ultimately which drew me into the Catholic faith.
