My Background

The world in which I was raised often seems foreign to those not also raised in it. I grew up with a mixture of evangelicalism and fundamentalism and in a family that was very influenced by the Christian Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements. My family was highly involved in the Christian Right, and I was homeschooled through high school and taught that dating was “practice for divorce” and that courtship was the godly alternative. I have left all this behind, but here on my blog I frequently write about my experiences.
