Hi everyone!

I'm Jonathan and just found these boards a short while ago. I'm a convert from Mormonism, though I was a Baptist most of my life and my ties to Protestantism were much stronger than to the Mormons; and this Easter will mark three years as a Roman Catholic. While I was in RCIA and considering conversion, various apologetic sites significantly helped bring me into communion with the Church. I very much look forward to spending time here with you all and I welcome any questions and debates. As a lay Catholic and Church Militant, I am growing in my faith and knowledge and I hope to share the journey with you all here. In my short time as a Catholic, I haven't always been the best and I'm not perfect frequent times giving into temptations and sin but only through studying and practicing the faith can one truly overcome things of this world with the Graces bestowed upon us through the Sacraments.

I'm not going to share my entire conversion story in this post but even though I'm not particularly proud of the fact that I had become a Mormon, it played a very large part in my eventual conversion to Catholicism. So, before anyone says anything negative about my having been a Mormon just know that much good came from that experience, however incorrect that church may be.

God bless you all!

Welcome! :wave I started practicing the Faith about two and a half years ago, so around the same time as you I think.

I don't think either Matt Parker or Trey Stone are on this board, so I'd say you're safe here. :fyi:

Welcome! :wave
