Pretty much summed it up there. And made me regret even more that I skipped last Sunday.


Your posts about this church make me wish I lived in Oregon. It sounds like the kind of place I'd like to show up on a Sunday!


i heart your ability to go vulnerable. seriously, my friend. you are brave and i love your voice. anything trying to stifle you, doesn't have your best interests in mind and only selfish agendas that can only benefit their own selves.

you deserve to be loved because you exist.

btw-i still want a t-shirt that says, "ordained by atheists". :)


Wow wish I had a church like that, about to lose my home, have no job, psycho ex husband, daughter with several mental health diagnosis and living with my 93 year old grandma (needless to say I love her, but for the grace of god, she is starting to lose it and so gets on my nerves). Trying to save the home I've paid for on 16 years and my ex not a penny, however I've let him live there rent free for 4 years (that's when I moved out). I feel so down. had a job with clear channel radio for 24 years and due to bain investments they centralized all accounting to corporate. Please boycott them! I need a job, and a sexual friend, lol.


Great post Amanda! Loved Crystal's words as well!


wonderful. If you take the kids sometime this summer-maybe Josie and I will join you. As for your voice-stop worrying about what others think of you and focus on what YOU think of you. Stop trying to BE a certain person (mother, wife, girlfriend, author, blogger, etc) and just be . . . Easier said than done, and you are on the right track.

I want to be your best friend.


As much as you would like to think so, you are not an atheist.

Been struggling, too. I need a manifesto.

From our chats, you know that I've been struggling with the same mentality for my entire life. One thing that I have noticed is that I feel much better when I do not think much about myself. I actually feel worse the more that I self-reflect. I heard somewhere that this is common. I'm not sure if that would help you, but we both tend to be introspective.

This was exactly what I needed to read today. Thank you.
