My name is Erica, (real name changed to protect identity) and I am a real life wife and mom of three adorable and sometimes challanging children. 😉
I am girly girl at heart, but not prissy. I love to partake in feminine arts such as sewing, baking bread, Cross Stitch, Scrapbooking, Organizing, and trying to be pretty. Ha! I enjoy reading, studying natural health alternatives, nutrition,and teaching my children. What makes me not prissy is the fact that I could care less if I broke a nail or get dirt under it. I walk around barefoot even outside. I can handle cleaning up dog poop without grossing out. I like to take long walks that make me sweat, swing on the swing with my kids, and just enjoy life, without worrying *too* much how I look after doing all these active activities. 😉
My weaknesses include, Hagan Dazs Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, Starbucks Frappichinos, Non-Fastfood restaurants, and wishing and coveting for hardwood floors, a fence around my yard and a chance to have a horse again.
In this blog, I will chronicle , muse, and shares my ponderings, and experiences with believing a toxic faith system.
There really isn’t a “label” to put on this toxic faith system I believed in. It is a conglomeration of many false labels that I, meshed together, and fell hook line and sinker for. A little from the Independent fundamental Baptist movement, a little from the Quiverfull/conservative homeschooling movement. A little from the Amish/Mennonites etc.
I will write how all these “labels” and philosophies almost caused me to miss the true Gospel of Grace… and how the Lord led me out, and how I am is still healing from the mess that I created.
I will also write my opinions and thoughts regarding issues that are going on “now” within the homeschooling movement as it pertains to legalism.
