"It took years of painful, sometimes excruciating struggle as I awakened to reason."
Having a friend or loved one leave their faith can be disheartening and confusing. It is often very difficult for those who remain believers to understand how someone they know and care for could renounce their beliefs and depart from the community of faith. And yet, it happens more often than one might realize.
With that in mind, I have created this page to assist those who are seeking to understand the how's and why's of deconversion. Below you will find my contributions on the subject as well as articles and websites that I have found helpful. It is my hope that through these resources those who are seeking to come to grips with the deconversion of a loved one will find a means of orienting themselves in the midst of what can be a distressing experience.
