I am new to this community, so allow me to introduce myself. My name is Megan and I have recently decided to convert to Catholicism. I am very excited about this new chapter in my life and I am trying to become a faithful young adult.
Anyway...the point of this entry is that I am a young adult that has unfortunately made BAD decisions in her life. Yes, we all have, however, I am trying so hard to end these things now. I think this is the key time in my life to make a change. I am going to college to mold myself into a person that I can love and that God will be able to use for his will.
I was on birth control up until this month. In the beginning it was for my irregular periods and severe cramps...however, I don't care about that anymore. Now that I know what God can bless us with, I want to live up to his will and what the Holy Church believes and promotes. So, yay! I am so proud. I finally took the step to stop taking the pill. It makes me feel like I have to be in control of my body now because now nothing is protecting me from getting "into trouble" except for myself. So, I feel that this is just getting a step closer in leading the life that God has intended for me. I thank God for this right now...*amen.*
Well, that's it. Positive feedback appreciated. Constructive criticism taken to heart.
