Amateur Catholic

We don't write books or do speaking tours.
In fact, we barely do our jobs.
-We're the B-Team of Catholic Bloggers-

This is the home of the Amateur Catholic® bloggers - or as we like to refer to ourselves, the B-team. We don't write books or do speaking tours. In fact, we barely do our jobs. That's not to say we're unambitious though... You see, this coalition is just the second phase our blogoshpere conquest. We suppose you could think of us as amateur crusaders too.

Membership will not bring you any money, perks, notoriety, or prestige - but you will get the privilege of proudly displaying the B-team badge on your blog! Lucky you, huh?

If you are hosting a conference, parish function, or some other event and can not afford the exorbitant fees typically associated with a Professional Catholic®, please contact one of our members. We like to hear ourselves talk just as much as the Professional Catholics® do, we just don't charge you for it. But hey give us a meal, free beer, and a designated driver, and we'll speak about breaking the Da Vinci Code or anything else you might care to hear about.

The B-Team badge is copryright 2006, The B-Team Bloggers®. Of course, we're Amateur Catholics®, so if you use the badge without permission (enrolled membership), we won't hunt you down and make you cough up your hard-earned bucks. Just have fun with it and maybe buy us a beer next time you're in town.

Andie: Amateur Catholic

My Blue Button envy has overcome my embarassment at having such a silly little blog.

May I play?

I'm a homeschooling mother of five. I was baptized Catholic, went to Catholic school (in the early 80's where I colored pictures of Jesus and made felt banners and learned...uh...nothing!) until Mom and Dad divorced, Mom joined a cult and I never went back to church, never got confirmed. I married a non churched feller, had a couple kids and after awhile started feeling the need to get back to church. Not the Catholic Church, of course - I'd seen the Godfather, after all, and I'd heard from Pat Robertson that I just needed to pray that prayer and I was good. So, a nice easy United Methodist or non denom is what we needed, I thought. While I'm church shopping, what does my heathen husband do? He starts secretly attending Mass and wants to start RCIA. I tried to save him, but...

Hmm. I'll skip the fighting part....

He joined over my protests; it only took a year for my sorry self to follow. We baptized the three kids, whom we'd started homeschooling by then, and had two more since, well, it's fun, and being Catholic we had an excuse to do so. ;)

Now we're just trying, like everyone else, to better learn and live our faith and raise all these kids right.

As for proof of my amateur status, well, I submit my blog entry about my toddler son on his potty. Does blogging GET any more amateur than discussing a toddler's name for his privates? I think not!


Sell crazy someplace else. We're all stocked up here.
Potty humor? I love it, and wouldn't expect it from anything more than an amateur. Welcome to B-Team, Andie!

Congratulations! I'm no math major but I figure this means that it will take 10 secularists minimum to impact the future as much as you and husband!

The Culture of Life, it just can't be stoped!
