This week’s Journey Home episode was with Nadia Mitchell, a third generation overseas missionary who was led to the Catholic Church in part through the pro-life movement.

We released a new Signposts video short with Maija Fish, who shared how the Catholic understanding of grace drew her to the Church.

In our latest written conversion story, Jack Raab explained how he left the practice of his Catholic faith twice- but is now back for good.

Ken Hensley wrote about how Noah, Abraham, and even Jesus show us the importance of both faith AND obedience in our relationship with God.

And in the latest installment of his series, “Twelve Reasons a Protestant Pastor Became Catholic,” Dr. Norman McCrummen explains the role his Catholic friends played in leading him to the Church.
