I too am a convert to the Catholic church and I feel like I am the bridge between. I have had numerous talks with my parents (my dad being a protestant pastor) about why I love the Catholic church. I have also talked about the misconceptions between the 2 churches. I have found that it stems from my family not really knowing why the church believes what it believes.
What have you found is the biggest point of tension with your family?
The biggest point of tension in mine is the Eucharist. Through prayer and Bible study I have discovered for myself that what the Catholic Church believes is true and have brought it to light to my parents. Jesus preaches in John 6:22-53 all about the bread of life.
This is only one example.
What I can suggest to you is to keep studying your Bible, back up your beliefs with scripture and you have a sound base. Do you have a copy of the Chatechism of the Catholic Church? It is a great tool the church has given us to strength our beliefs and to talk to others about why the church believes as it does.
