We want to help start or continue conversations about the messy parts of life. Although we both had a conservative upbringing, we've grown out of a lot of our traditional ways of thinking. Breaking down topics like religion, purity culture & racism, while demystifying things like feminism, equality & love. We've stepped away from our evangelical church background (and CCM careers)... ie - religiosity, all the while leaning into our innate spirituality. We invite all to the table. @LaurenDeLeary & @officialadamfrost

Are Imaginary Friends Our Spirit Guides? - Jesus Witch (Hannah Moon)
Hannah Moon is an intuitive coach focused on helping those with a religious upbringing to deconstruct their own ideas, beliefs, and fears to live an authentic and joy-filled life. She is an inter-faith, inter-spirituality coach who believes there is truth weaving through all cultures and practices guiding us to love, inner divinity, and wholeness. Hannah began her own deconstruction journey after being faced with the reality that the dreams she was pursuing were for the approval of those around her, versus true fulfillment. Her surface-level authenticity led her to discover a deeper understanding of who she was by unpacking harmful rhetoric, trauma, and ideology that didn't belong to her. Hannah’s main message is to empower individuals to invest in their own education and by being more knowledgeable, people are able to think critically and be grounded in the way they choose to live their lives.
