Hello
Hi all,
Just now discovering this forum and looking to be a part of the community.....also a place to seek advice on occasion. I'm a mid-30's father of 3 (preschool/toddlers)who recently came out as Atheist to my immediate family (Midwest Catholics). Has gone surprisingly well so far. Been atheist for close to a decade, now motivated to live openly as my kids are starting to ask the god questions. Plugging in to the activist side of the movement more as well so my patience with the religious has been dwindling as of late. Diving into secular parenting stuff and I'm sure I'll be exploring the forums in depth for assistance. I'm a military guy (close to retiring from reserves), now civilian engineer who digs good beer, mountain biking, and religious conversation.
Cheers!
