About

Where to begin? I am a thirty-something, married, full time working, mom that lives in the buckle of the Bible belt. I began having serious doubts about Christianity around two years ago. Sometime during the last year, I completely let go of God. I’m not ready to say that I know there is nothing bigger than us, but I am certain that what I was raised to believe is not the answer. My husband has vacillated between being a Darwinist skeptic that became a believer in Christ over the past 5 years. We have somehow switched spiritual paths in the past several years. That one is still a mystery to me. I was raised by a very religious mom and went to church regularly as a kid. I tapered off on my attendance when I was a teenager and again when I was first married. We began to be very active in church about 5 years ago up and up until a year and a half ago. Something happened that made me rethink the stance of the church and opened my eyes to the hypocrisy of it all. It made me view the church as more of a business or political venture and not a place to grow closer to the big guy in control. Suddenly it didn’t make sense anymore. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that no religion makes sense to me. I am comfortable in my non-belief, but am unfortunately closeted to my family and most of my friends.

I am hoping to discuss my journey into non belief as well as have discussions with other like-minded people about their experiences, both positive and negative.

      I just finished reading your “About” page. It was beautifully written. It brought up what I felt as I realized that my beliefs were slipping right out of my grasp. I mourned it at the time, the loss of what was comfortable. Now? I can’t imagine going back.
