Kate King lives in a suburb just outside of Minneapolis with her husband of 12 years where she has been homeschooling her three kids ages 10, 9 and 6. She has spent the last couple of years writing about the unraveling of the Christianity she always called home, and now hopes to share her stories with the intent of connecting with others that are doing their best to make sense of their own spiritual lives.
On this episode, we discuss how Kate’s faith has changed over the course of her life, how she has wrestled with making sense of it all, and how she even considered walking away from God completely. She shares in such a raw way and I think so many of us can relate to and recognize ourselves in the things that she shares about how her religious experiences were at odds with her desire to find God in the difficult places.
