3rd Annual International Hug a Convert Day



For those of you who may not be aware, June 1, 2014 was proclaimed as the 3rd Annual International Hug a Convert Day by Middle Aged Mormon Man, one of my favorite bloggers.  To celebrate, all throughout this week Middle Aged Mormon Man has been posting conversion stories of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Each story represents someone finding, and accepting the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ - and then acting on it.

In his first post of the series CELEBRATING CONVERTS: HERE WE GO…  from last Sunday, Middle Aged Mormon Man explains a bit about why he likes to celebrate new converts and their courage in accepting the gospel.  The stories themselves are amazing, and I've been enjoying them all week long.  You just might enjoy reading them too!
