Encounter with a conversion story: she prayed to find the right church

Check out this video about a girl who converted to Catholicism.  It reminds me very much of all the stories I've heard about the LDS Church. 

The similarities are uncanny, especially when she, as a non Catholic, once thought of the church as "weird" and "a cult." 

If you removed the word "Catholic" and re-worded a belief or two, this story sounds exactly like some of the LDS testimonies I've heard over the years.  She even prayed to find the right church to belong to.

Mormons hear stories like this from members every Sunday.  I thought this was a nice take on something I rarely hear Catholics say.

My favorite place--the front page!

I haven't been doing as many freelance articles lately because I've had to concentrate on book promotion.

However, here's one notable exception.  I made the front page of a large daily paper with a story about pro-wrestling star "The Franchise" Shane Douglas.  Shane, whose real name is Troy Martin, has worked in every major U.S. wrestling promotion including ECW, WCW, TNA, and WWE.

Check my story out here.

I'm in Provo's Daily Herald!

The Daily Herald of Provo Utah has a big feature story about me and my book in today's edition!!!

I was very excited when the reporter called me, but I had no idea how many other calls he would make.  Cody was very thorough, and I appreciate his hard work.

This is the first time I've been in a Utah newspaper, and it's truly an honor!

My favorite part about the story is that they included quotes from some of my own missionaries. (The two on the cover as a matter of fact!)  Cody asked me for their phone numbers, and I was excited that both Childs and Dowling got to speak with him.

You can see the story here.

When was the word "Catholic" first used?

I learned this a long time ago, but I just found this video.  Everything's more fun (and easier to recall) when you watch it as a video.
