Description

Former fundie Proverbs 31 homeschool mama, Melissa, just graduated with a degree in Women's Studies.  She has an expansive resume; author, childbirth educator, doula, belly dancer, mom to 5 and grandma to 8 (just to name a few). 

Searching at the tender age of 17 for the best way to raise her baby, Melissa found church. 

Today at 50, Melissa's unabashed ambition to be a life long learner and question everything led her in to uncharted territories. This perpetual hunger for knowledge and understanding brought her to a space where her christian faith no longer made sense. 

We talk surviving the pandemic, regrets during our child rearing years, hypocrisy within the church, supposed friends rejecting us and much more.

In leaving Christianity behind,  Melissa is experiencing newfound joy and freedom.  Excited about the future, she's living her best life here in the Midwest with her hubby of 33 years by her side. 

Enjoy Part 2 of her story.
