    I have a simple question for you: Do you ever feel like you just don’t fit in anywhere? You and I are members of what seems like an infinitely small group – atheist mothers of multiples. I was part of two moms groups, but I really don’t feel like I fit in with either of them because the multiples group is so religious and the atheist moms group has all singletons. It’s kind of lonely. Any advice?
    Thanks.

      Holly I not ignoring you! I’m going to answer your question, but I thought I would do it in a post. Maybe there are others out there like us, moms of multiples and atheist, maybe by making a post of it, they can find us!

  2. I tried emailing you but I am not sure if it go through. I would love to read your story. I grew up in an overbearing religious household and have analogous family issues now that I am an atheist. If possible, please contact me at

    I feel you.. I grew up Catholic always questioning everything I was told. Sorry if I question the existence of a big man in the sky who runs everything. People question why I question, why I don’t just believe what is told to me… well, the way I see it, you should have to prove god is real. I shouldn’t have to prove he’s, uh, not real. Even today my dad calls me atheist in disgust…I laugh. Like as if god is a sure thing and I’m an idiot. I’m not an atheist, I say. I don’t reject the possibility. I just want some proof if I’m going to get in on it. I’m agnostic. Anyway- I’m just too logical for religion. I’m comfortable with the final thought of death. I don’t need a fluffy story about heaven to feel ok about it. Isn’t that all religion really is? A nice package to manage sadness with outcomes that have no answers. Take the shooting yesterday. To me, more proof god doesn’t exist… but to the sheep… this is god’s plan. I don’t know about you, but this god everyone raves about doesn’t seem like he’d be into small children being shot. Sad. I’ve cried. But thinking it’s some greater god’s will isn’t a comfort. Wow- I’m rambling. I tend to not get into religion with people bc man, do they take offense when you question it, or offer a more scientific or logical theory. I’m glad I found your blog. πŸ˜‰

    • Hi Lisa

      Yes, questioning ones religion seems to be highly frowned upon in today’s society. Like you, I need some proof. The shootings are so tragic. It’s so very upsetting and my Facebook page has been flooded with people proclaiming “this is what happens when you take prayer out of schools!” This is so utterly insulting. I do not see god in any of it. Especially not the god Christians claim to see. I’m glad you found my blog. Comment or email at any time. πŸ™‚

    Not sure if my first comment posted or not…

    But as a woman who grew up as a Christian for 20+ years and is now Agnostic, I’d love to read your story. I understand if you aren’t sharing that with people anymore, but I thought it was at least worth asking about.

    Please email me at harrisDOTshanelleATgmailDOTcom

    Thanks! πŸ™‚

    Hello! Can I please have the password, so that I may read your posts and stories? I am a SAHM with 13 year old twins and a supporting husband. We have basically no relationship with my parents, due to the oppressive religious crap the messed up my childhood with. It is like a weight being lifted, hearing the words of other like minded people! Thank you kindly, Jessica Noce
