Choosing Judaism

My DH is Jewish (from his mother), but he was never raised with it. Now he is attending synagogue and learning his heritage in classes with the rabbi. They have individual instruction and a group class. We are incorporating more into our home too (keeping Kosher, blessings, celebrating Shabbat, attending synagogue as a family for Shabbat evening and morning services). It has been very enlightening for me! I am reading everything the rabbi has my DH reading, I am studying all the materials he sends home. I feel like these past few months have made us a family again. I have been thinking about approaching the rabbi about choosing to be Jewish (I was raised Christian). Has anyone else converted to Judaism?
