Personal Summary

Hello, my name is Zachary Powers. I am a recent convert to Catholicism, but I have degrees in Bible and Christian Education from Grace University in Omaha, Nebraska. While Grace University was a Protestant University, I have spent the last 6 years reading Catholic theologians. I am thoroughly convinced of the truth of Catholicism and wish for others to understand the beauty that is the Catholic Church.
