  • No, I have always believed the way I do now. I was raised outside my faith but was never a fan of the things I was taught. Even as a child I didn't believe them and followed this path as much as I could. As an adult I have refined some beliefs but have always believed this way in general.

  • My hubby and I are Catholic. I'm a convert and he's what they call a "revert", as in he left the faith and returned. I think it was good for him, made him much stronger in his beliefs and it was nice that when I converted we were really learning some of the things together that I had to learn to join the Church.

  • I didn't leave it as much as I sought other religions to see if mine was the true one for me. I minored in religious studies in college. I checked out all the ones that were of interest to me. In the end I returned to my original beliefs so it's the right one for me.
