This is a safe space for anyone who is in the process of faith deconstruction. Where questions are encouraged, and wanderers are welcomed.
If you are
wandering, wondering, lost, questioning, or leaving…
Rebuilding, reconstructing, sifting, and evolving…
Wherever you are in your faith journey…
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
WELCOME TO THE WILDERNESS.
In this online space, you will find others who are learning to lean into the questions. People who aren’t uncomfortable with uncertainty. People who are open and opening ever more to ever changing ideas and new perspectives. If you’re feeling alone or lonely, in the process of leaving your religion or faith community and walking into the unknown wilderness, we want to welcome you and support you in your unique faith journey. Welcome to the wilderness… there are more of us out here than you think.
WHAT YOU WILL FIND HERE…
Since you’ve stumbled on this little corner of the internet, you’re probably wondering what you’ll find here. This is a personal blog, as well as a resource for anyone in a faith deconstruction process. I will be writing about my own personal experiences in the process of leaving evangelical Christianity, as well as delving into topics such as:
- WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU FACE OPPOSITION FROM FAMILY & FRIENDS
- LGBTQIA+ RESOURCES AND AFFIRMING CHURCHES
- FEMINISM & WOMEN’S ROLES
- LEAVING TRADITIONAL AMERICAN EVANGELICALISM
- NEW WAYS OF APPROACHING THE BIBLE
- PURITY CULTURE & ITS INFLUENCE ON SEXUALITY
“Not all who wander are lost…”
