I wasn’t Jewish but I still was a non-believer and now I’m a believer of Jesus and live daily for him.

I could share some of my experience(s) if you’d like 🙂

Oh… oops. So if you don’t mind me asking.. what would you be converting from?

Ah, my grandparents are Lutheran, and yea staying with them over the summers was like that “routine” for sure.

I’m a non-denominational (simply Bible believing) Christian now.

What’s made you consider Judiaism?

I’m converting to Judaism before our marriage next year.  I was brought up Protestant and when I left home for college it sort of fizzled out.  I realized that I’m not sure if I believe in God- my paternal grandmother was Jewish and also my great-grandfather on my mother’s side. 

My Fiance doesn’t care if we have a Jewish wedding or if I convert, but I really want it so we’re doing it.  Jewish culture and family life is really important to me and I want to be able to say “we’re Jewish” about the whole family.  Also, I want to study and get more education (although I’ve done a lot already) in order to have a knowledge base that my Fiance got in hebrew school all those years.

I hope that helps!

I second Mrs. Hot Cocoa’s blog posts as a great read on conversion!  My very best friend is considering conversion through a Conservative rabbi, actually for many of the same reasons as @GretaCT (has Jewish background in her family tree, wants to share it with her future husband and future children).  I send her Mrs. Hot Cocoa’s blog posts and she found them very insightful!
