Raising Children Un-Fundamentalist – Vlog – What to do when the damage is already done?

I am coming to you in video today! Please forgive my terrible cough and rudimentary editing skills, but I am ready to meet you guys in person via video despite all of my imperfections.

This is a launch of weekly video blogs addressing issues and concerns I was not able to cover in my Raising Children Un-Fundamentalist series, which you can check out below:

    It was so nice to see you on video and you did just fine. Yeah Cindy! It does take courage to change our destructive ridged beliefs. It is scary to get out of the fundamentalist box which is a false sense of security because we had an answer for everything. Currently the church I go to say that God is a mystery which makes me uncomfortable but then again not. To think otherwise that we know everything about God is quite arrogant. I started my emotional and spiritual recovery 22 yrs ago when my son was 2 1/2. I went from one Christian church to another which was unstable for him but I learned a lot. Although he wants nothing to do with Christianity now I am grateful that he questions and challenges his upbringing which I did allow. I do have to tread lightly talking about faith issues but it is also a part of who I am. I pray he does come to find a faith of his own and not just blindly believing everything the church teaches.

    • I’m so glad to get to “meet” you guys via video like this, even though I was nervous and scared. 🙂 Your son is lucky to have you!

    Just a little note: the link to “Part 2” actually links to “Part 3.”

    Although I’m only skimming these at the moment, I am enjoying what I’m seeing.

    • Thank you for letting me know – I fixed it!
