This is a talk given by Jennifer Fulwiler at the Steubenville Conference in 2015. My personal journey wasn’t from atheism to Catholicism but I think so many of us, myself included, can relate to her journey.
Growing up and educated in a secular system that praised the scientific method as the new religion.
Ostracized in our personal life from any examples of babies children or traditional family.
Thinking we knew everything at age 19 and that traditional values and systems were ridiculous and we could reinvent the wheel all by ourselves. (I can hear you chuckling)
Then our first child comes along and suddenly the world shifts. We become very connected to faith, family and folk in a way we never envisioned and the world comes into focus. Atheists become Christians, Modernists become Traditionalist, Feminism become TradWives.
Jennifer has a great sense of humor too I know you will enjoy.
