This week’s guest is B. B grew up homeschooled in a large evangelical household and spent nearly thirty years in the church, trying to fit in. He had felt like leaving for a while, never having belonged, and then in 2016, he knew it was the end for him. He hit the door running.
One of the most destructive forces within his Christian upbringing was Purity Culture. Since deconverting, he’s learned that he isn’t alone when it comes to loving yourself and exerting your autonomy.
