I always thought that my experience was quite extraordinary. I had built myself into quite a leader in Church, in a Christian School, and beyond. It seemed amazing that I would have found myself in a place that I could no longer believe. It seemed even more amazing that, over time, I felt the need to actually embrace my lack of faith, and to promote my newfound Atheism, rather than just live and let live.

 

I'm finding more and more that my story is anything but unique. That many have walked where I have. Despite my natural, human desire for self importance, it is really comforting to find so many people who were once strong theists, who have grown beyond such a crux.

 

I have now been a non-theist for nearly 10 years. It is very recent that I have discovered so many great resources to learn and connect. I am so happy to have found this site and finding so many people, especially locally, who have similar life experiences to mine.

 

I am working on a long version of my story and do expect to share it later.
