Hello! My name is Bryan Koen and I’d like to welcome you to my blog, Ongoing Conversion. Here we will explore my take on what it means to be a Catholic parent in the 21st Century. I hope that you will share your insights as well and we can all grow in our faith as we navigate the parental minefield.

A little about me….

I have been married to Cara for 18 years now and known her for 25. She is an amazing woman. She works as the Director of Advancement for our deanery Catholic schools.

We have been blessed with four children, Ethan, Spencer, Desmond and Greta. As an only child, I would have never dreamed that I would have had such a large family. I love every minute of it. We have a lot of fun together.

I have built a career over the past 20 years in IT. My career took a brief detour into the world of insurance and financial services. My return to IT has included the development of a new skill set and a new type of role. It’s been a fun past couple of years. It’s a good thing that I really enjoy learning.
