207: I Never Thought We’d Ever Become Catholic (w/ Karen Edmisten)

207: I Never Thought We’d Ever Become Catholic (w/ Karen Edmisten) May 31, 2023

In this episode, I’m joined by the wonderful Karen Edmisten, author, Mom, and surprised Catholic convert, Karen joins me this week to tell her amazing story from atheism into the Catholic Church.

Raised without any religion at all Karen was surprised when she began to ask questions about the meaning of life – to encounter people who caused her to ask these kinds of questions by the way they lived – and ended up becoming Christian. To her surprise, she wasn’t done yet, and Karen eventually made her way into the Catholic Church.

Her husband, a practical atheist, was as surprised as anyone but he came along for the journey and, eventually, converted to Catholicism as well.

Through struggles, challenges, incredible miracles, and wonderful stories along the way, Karen tells the tale of her amazing journey from atheism into Catholicism and how it’s fundamentally changed her life, her husband’s life, and the live of their family.
