In the past week I have been so impressed with the quality of two posts on two blogs that I feel moved to share the blessing.  Both blogs are by young ladies who are converts to Catholicism and just reading them should put to rest the popular  notion on the left that Christians in general, and Catholics in particular, are bigoted Neanderthals.

How long have I been blogging?  About six months.  How long have I roamed the blogosphere?  Even less than that.  I jumped right in not knowing what I was doing.  But I have found that there is much out there that is a total waste of time, and time is one thing that we all have in the same quantity.   So, in the interest of pointing to quality writing from unusual perspectives I offer the following.

The first blog is Conversion Diary by Jennifer F. whose conversion story begins here.   She tells how she, a former atheist, came to believe in God, and this is followed by another post on Why I Am a Catholic.  She is now 31 years old and the mother of three small children.  The post that so impressed me is titled How Would You Know?, dated November 5, and is found here.   It starts with a picture taken from an album at the Holocaust Museum of workers at Auschwitz on a break and enjoying themselves.  She wonders how they can look so happy, — do they realize the horror they are taking part in?  Her thoughts on the subject are thought-provoking, even somewhat chilling.

The second blog is Historical Christian.   Aimee Milburn Cooper has only been married about a month.  She has a Master’s in Theology and was a class valedictorian.  Her conversion story begins here,  and it’s a
fascinating one!

However,  the blogpost that so impressed me  and prompted me to write today is here.   Aimee is newly married and they have  just moved into their new (to them) home.  She realizes that she knows how to do
research but has no idea of how to keep house.  So, of course, she researches the subject of housecleaning!   Her thoughts on the theology of housework are quite profound.   (I am so looking forward to her thoughts on the theology of marriage and motherhood!)

Let me know if you enjoyed my “finds.”
