Welcome, we are honored to be a part of your journey, and we're so glad you're here!
After coming to the realization that I was no longer a believer I felt so very alone as family and friends abandoned me. That sense of community was important to me, not only as a person, but as a growing non-believer and lover of the real me. Though the atheist community was very welcoming I felt a bit intimidated and not 100% connected to the group because most of them were non-believers from a very young age and it was hard for them to understand what I was going through. Recovering From Religion is an important bridge for the doubting and new non-believer to explore the non-believing world. I believe it's important to provide emotional support and a safe place to be vulnerable, creating new relationships and a sense of community so that more and more non-believers know they can come out of the god closet with a support system, ultimately growing numbers and creating a better future for my children and their children.
