We welcome back Bethany, 26 years old, married mom of two, to the Women Beyond Faith podcast!
In this episode the conversation moves to pornography, marital relationships, working through tough stuff, isolation, misguided christian counsel, sex in marriage after receiving the Purity Culture narrative, pregnancy, parenting during deconversion, forgiveness, second chances, secular higher ed institutions, finding freedom, autonomy as women, and working hard to become the best version of oneself!
Bethany brings me to tears -- yet again. There's something so esoteric and mystical in speaking to someone of the 'next generation' who embodies such beauty and a wisdom beyond her years...
Young, fierce women like Bethany put forth a hope in humanity that I'm clinging on to!
“Hope is the Thing With Feathers”
-- Emily Dickinson:
Hope is the thing with feathersSupport the show
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.
