Kimberly Poovey is the founder of The Exvangelical Parent, a community of misfits, questioners, and wanderers, sharing our stories and navigating ethics, morality, and spirituality in parenting. We come from a wide variety of backgrounds and religious traditions, but we are all on a journey of deconstructing, reconstructing, and decolonizing our faith, (or lack thereof.) We aspire to raise good humans without religious baggage who will make the world a better, more just, and more loving place.
For the last several years, I’ve been in the process of deconstructing and reconstructing my faith, and I don’t yet know where I’ve landed. (Perhaps landing at all isn’t the point.) Now, as parents, my husband and I are trying to impart morality, ethics, empathy, compassion, and social justice to our child without making those things irrevocably interwoven with a conservative faith tradition. It’s a journey, and we are figuring it out as we go.
I’m a writer, artist, wife, and over-caffeinated mom. Enneagram 9. INFP. After spending over a decade in the ministry world, I now write and create full-time. You can find my work on Scary Mommy, The Mighty, The Huffington Post, The Natural Parent, Parent Co, and Her View From Home.
