Welcome.

Hi! I’m Emily, and I write about faith deconstruction, religious trauma, and equity for women and LGBTQ+ in Christian spaces. Sometimes I write from personal experience, having been raised in the white evangelical church. Sometimes I turn religion scholars and former pastors-turned-advocates for their expertise & insight. And I am constantly making an effort to point white people to voices of color, indigenous voices and those in the LGBTQ+ community because it is my belief that if change is going to come to the evangelical church at large- they will be the ones to change it.

So if you’re here because you have found yourself in the wilderness of deconstruction, or because you’re still a believer within the evangelical church, my hope is that you’ll find the stories and topics on this website helpful.
