I want to help you parent after religious trauma.
I grew up in a conservative evangelical environment, the kind where I asked Jesus into my heart when I was a kid, married young, procreated, and committed to a lifetime of missionary service before my brain had even fully developed.
That turned out to be toxic in a hundred ways for me so I deconstructed my faith at the same time as raising my children.
☑️ At first, it was the little things. Twitches and rants during and after church when I disagreed with what the pastor was saying from the pulpit.
☑️ Then, it was bigger things. Full on meltdowns as I had to choose to either abandon the church, or abandon myself.
☑️ My children sometimes triggered me with their innocent spiritual curiosity. I snapped at them because I didn’t want them to have the same toxic experience I had.
I felt alone. Anxious. Terrified.
And I was supposed to be in charge of two little ones!
I started a group called Raising Children Unfundamentalist to talk about how in the world to do this hard thing: parenting and deconstructing at the same damn time.
Terrifying because this is uncharted territory.
Beautiful because it is an opportunity to create a new way of parenting—one that doesn’t coerce children’s spirituality, cultivates safe spaces for both the children and our inner child, and raise conscious citizens in families that change the fabric of our society.
