Motherhood is an earthy, human, painful, female event, filled with soaring joy and searing pain. God came to us like this.
I do not take deconstruction lightly, nor do I wish for churches to die. I want the church to flourish, and flourishing requires weeding out that which is harmful.
It can be less lonely simply not going to church than going and trying to be a part of something that largely was not designed for you.
For someone who thrives on order and stability, drawing my own map is more than navigating uncharted territory. It’s calling me to trust myself, trust God, and believe that the journey towards my own healing is worth the effort.
