I don't usually yap about other blogs because I'm a narcissistic twat, but this is probably the most awesome blog series I've read in a long time and I wanted to share its awesomeness with you.
As you know, I became obsessed with fundamentalist Christian blogs in December of 2010 and, as an offshoot of that obsession, I discovered another fascinating set of blogs - recovering fundie blogs!
My favourite of these recovering fundie blogs is called Permission to Live. When I first started reading it a year and a half ago, the anonymous author wrote about her upbringing in a fundamentalist Quiverfull home and her courtship process and her changing philosophies around religion and parenting and (occasionally) political issues, such as gay marriage and (occasionally, obliquely) sexual orientation.
Her blogging was pretty sparse over the last few months - she, her husband and four kids were in the process of moving, so posts were few and far between. And then a few weeks ago, she started to tell a new story. And it was such a fantastic, lovely love story, told so well, that I actually put all the links together for you so that you could go read it. And if you don't have a little tear in your eye by the end of it, then you are DEAD INSIDE.
