Living Catholic…

I am a Catholic convert. I entered the Church on March 30, 2013. Since then I haven’t been the best Catholic. I have been so ashamed. Feeling so much guilt and anxiety, I can’t even bring myself to go to confession regularly. (Which most likely would make me feel better, no doubt.)

I want to be more. Be a better person. Day by day I pray I’ll get there. I am starting the journey back to Jesus and the Eucharist. Where do I start? The rosary. Every time. That is what started my journey into the Church back in the early 00s. That, to me, is where I find Jesus best.

I am starting a journey of praying a rosary a day. I would appreciate it if you would join me in this journey. It is my prayer that Jesus reveals himself through this journey in a way that I can’t talk myself out of or ignore. It is my prayer that peace will be give through this journey…as simple as it is. As routine as it is. I’ve found that when things start falling apart it is best to go back to what we know works and what is simple and has routine. This is the rosary for my faith journey.

Here are links to how to pray the rosary. Also, If you have an Alexa enabled device…she is also able to lead you through the rosary if you need guidance. Also, ETWN offers the rosary twice daily.

Be Warned…

I love Jesus. I also curse. A lot.

There may or may not be language in future posts. I can promise it will be skillfully placed for expression purposes, if it does happen. I just wanted to warn those who are offended by skillful use of language, so they can remove themselves. Still love you.

My Theology

Everyone has a faith story…even atheists. There’s a reason people believe what they believe or don’t believe at all. My faith journey is no different.

I remember as a young child kneeling beside my grandmother and praying for Jesus to live in my heart. I couldn’t have been more than 4 or 5.

I grew up in church. The Christian Church/Church of Christ to be more specific. And when it came time for college, I went to Atlanta Christian College (Point University).

I ended up with an Early Childhood degree and a minor in Biblical Studies. Somewhere along the way of getting the degree…I began to lose my faith.

Fast forward through 2 divorces, a conversion to Catholicism, and 20 years…somehow my heart still seeks Jesus. I don’t care so much for organized religion. I struggle with the concept of legal marriage vs. spiritual marriage. I struggle with the church’s inclusion of ALL…or the lack thereof. That being said, I love Jesus. A lot. I pray. I love others and I love God. That at it’s essence is my theology. Love God. Love others.
