I am a Midwestern American, currently living in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. I am an openly out joyful atheists with a penchant for science, literature, travel, theater, photography, studying all fields of learning, except for math which gives me hives, reading, blogging, and listening to the secrets of my children while we walk on the beach or cuddle under the blankets. I am an optimist, a lover-not-a-fighter, a person who thinks a bit too much and is a bit too sensitive... I am a homeschooling mum of two children (ages 16 and 12) and the wife of an amazing man. I love sweatpants. I believe in the inherent goodness of all people.

I am not much of a debater, but some believers make such ridiculous claims that I, sometimes, have to just address them.

Being a first generation atheist parent can be confusing, but you can do it!

All freethinking parents should spend some time thinking about death and loss and how to address this with their children before they need it.

It has been my pleasure to present my children with as much information about religions as they are interested in. It is my experience that this knowledge reinforces skepticism.

Laying a nice foundation of critical thinking will pay off, giving your children the gift of learning about logical fallacies and reason!
