Denver, Colo., Jul 18, 2014 / 12:03 am (CNA/EWTN News).- The conversion from atheism to Catholicism was a rewarding journey full of triumph and trial for Jennifer Fulwiler, as outlined in her recent book, Something Other Than God.
Fulwiler told CNA that before we were Catholic, we were caught up in a very selfish worldview.
Although they were not trying to be selfish, she explained, atheism contained a worldview where the self was the center of everything.
Today, Fulwiler lives in Texas with her husband and five children. She runs a personal blog, ConversionDiary.com, and also blogs for the National Catholic Register.
However, her life was not always focused on faith. Fulwilers conversion began with the birth of her first child.
I hadnt been part of the full human experience, she explained. I was raised in this culture where I was just completely isolated from new life or from babies, this whole cycle of life.
Having a child compelled her to start asking the big questions concerning the meaning of life and its value.

“The conversion from atheism to Catholicism...”
Let’s pray she entrusted herself to the only One who can save eternally also - and not stopped at merely joining a church.
This story and many others like it are a big part of the reason the Left is anti-motherhood: it's a path away from the atheism that is their religion.
People “convert” for many reasons and to many things. Of those, only One saves eternally.
. . . the essence of mankind's original sin. . . .
‘Now that Christ is at the center, it has really taught us how to love ourselves and our family members.
‘Fulwiler encourages those considering conversation to not be afraid to ask the tough questions of the Church. Doing so, she said, will lead to 2,000 years worth of answers.’
Blogging was important to me because I hung out in entirely atheistic social circles and I was too embarrassed about the fact that I was exploring religion in my personal life, she said, explaining that because she had isolated herself from most Christians, she had a hard time finding someone to answer her religious question. Her blog became a safe place to express her views anonymously.
