Annette Beitzel is a 29 year old Accounting student. She married young -- at the age of 20-- like many fundy christians do. Today Annette and her hubby live in Michigan with their adorable, delightful nearly 2 year old son.
Annette grew up in a fundamentalist conservative Mennonite community in rural Kansas. While there were always matters of theology and biblical teaching that didn't square, her faith didn't start to fall apart until she and her hubby moved away from the Mennonite community to Grand Rapids, MI for school.
Today Annette finds herself a proud humanist atheist. She finds joy in raising her kid with gentleness and respect while modeling kindness and critical thinking. She is working hard to break the dysfunctional cycle of fundamentalist parenting!
