My name is Pam Spano and I converted to the Catholic faith as an adult over 30 years ago. My conversion story started when I sarcastically said to my Catholic boyfriend at the time, "I suppose if we were to get married, you would want me to convert." He thought for a moment and said, "Well, I am worried about your soul." I suddenly realized that maybe I should be worried about my soul and so the journey began. That boyfriend and I have been married 33 years.
I started blogging at ChicagoNow nearly four years ago. Being Catholic ... Really grew from the many conversations I've had with family and friends about our faith. It's been quite a ride!
