Our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee...

My name is Mike. I'm a Catholic from southeastern Kentucky, having moved to Kentucky in 1999 from Belleville, Illinois, a suburb about 15 miles east of St. Louis. I converted to Catholicism in 1997, having previously attended Calvary Baptist Church (a church I retain a very deep respect for and gratitude to).

I love baseball (especially the St. Louis Cardinals), and I also read a lot. Besides the Bible, I also read many Christian writers. First and foremost is G.K. Chesterton, whom you can learn some interesting facts about here. Others include Mark Shea, Fulton Sheen, C.S. Lewis, John Henry Cardinal Newman, Thomas Howard, and, though he has not written any books, blogger Dale Price. (among others). Similarly, another author I like to read is Mike Flynn, who (even though he has written books,i.e, science fiction books such as Eifelheim, which books I have yet to read), it is his blog posts/comments on other subjects that I read.

I'm not especially good at posting, but I do hope to use this LJ to post from time to time, as well as (of course) keep up with friends. (Earlier entries contain many posts concerning G.K. Chesterton, since at that time I used this LJ for a dual purpose: both for personal entries as well as a sort of G.K. Chesterton blog. Now, however, I have another blog for Chesterton related posts: Laughter and Humility)

God bless!
