Amanda read a series of opinion blog posts today and was intrigued by the viewpoints of the author, who wrote about her struggles of growing up as a Catholic, facing difficulties along the way, and making the serious and equally difficult decision to leave Catholicism.
On September 18, 2020, Amanda was honored with a very important phone call that lasted two hours. Amanda wrote a detailed blog post about this incredible experience and waited almost three months before publishing it. To this day, that juicy and beautiful blog post remains unpublished.
