NMHS, our family was Protestant until several months ago. 10 mos. or so ago I read about book that piqued my interest in Orthodoxy and I began reading both on the Internet and books from the library. My husband didn't have an interest at first, but soon he asked me to recommend a book and I did. Still more weeks went by and we attended a vigil service on Christmas Eve in a town we were visiting, our first Orthodox service. Our first liturgical service, ever. We stood at the side, eyes wide open, just watching, listening. More weeks, even a month or two went by, then we attended a Reader's Vespers in our home town. At that point we were on the same page and in some ways my husband had to pull *me* along as I struggled with "Are we getting involved in a cult?" (I knew we weren't but it was scary to leave what we'd always known.) My husband talked about leaving our former church, and I tried saying we could do both for a time. But my husband is not duplicitous and he spoke to the pastor of our former church, setting a date for our last Sunday there. We've been at the Orthodox church ever since and became catechumens in August. So while I "found" the Church, my husband has led our way into it and for that I'm thankful. Our kids (ranging in age from a baby to 15.5 years old) are all fully on board. They love the Church!
