This on-demand workshop is the perfect tool to help you break free from legalism, nationalism, and patriarchy!
Tired of all the false doctrines and hateful -isms in the church but not sure what to do about it? You’re not alone!
When you are deconstructing it can feel like a weight on your chest of everything to sort through. Where do you start? Perhaps you've started asking questions, and slowly moving towards beliefs that feel better in your heart. Laying the groundwork to explore can be helpful, and that's where this course comes in. Let's create a foundation for you to get clear on what toxic religion believes, what you think is possible, and find your spot on the map of the deconstruction wilderness so you can move forward with clear confidence.
I’ve created this workshop to help you get back to the core of your faith, without all the trappings of toxic religious culture.
You'll get a downloadable workbook, training videos, and easy-to-follow activities to help you:
✔Root out the false teachings that are impacting you daily.
✔Discover the truth about you and your faith.
✔Reclaim your power and choose how you want to move forward.
✔Break down what toxic religion says, and figure out what you truly believe.
The good news…
No matter how out of control things feel right now, you get to choose what happens next and…
you don’t have to figure it all out on your own.
Deconstruction should always be a personalized journey and it's important to have a guide who understands how hard it is to challenge everything you were taught to believe.
I'm Angela, a Faith Deconstruction Coach with 11+ years of experience in ministry, and I'm here to tell you the choice about what you believe is (and always should have been) yours to make.
For years, you’ve been told that you have to believe certain things to be welcomed, loved, and ‘deserve’ safety.
They taught you to push aside your natural intuition and curiosity, while pressuring you to fit in.
But that’s all changing now, because you’ve realized how small you had to make yourself to fit into their box.
Now you’re taking back your power, your voice, your body.
You’re remembering how to choose what’s resonant with your soul and take up more space, even when that rocks the boat.
"Angela helped me to gain a new relationship with my Creator & myself..."
Both of which are without limits & not confined to any sort of 'box'. When I first started deconstructing, I quickly became overwhelmed at all the toxicity I was finally noticing in the religion I used to be a part of. It was physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually painful. But, I went from someone who avoided feelings at all costs (even when I was alone), always relying on the opinions of others, to someone who has more tools in my toolbox to continue in growth. I now trust myself (including my feelings) to shape my own path, even if it means nobody is leading me. Before this course, I was about ready to give up on God altogether.
"She has helped me to be brave and for that, I am truly grateful."
It was refreshing to be coached by Angela because I come from a very conservative background. She empowered me to become ALL that God has created me to be, not just a portion. I appreciate her honesty and intuition immensely. She always has the right words to say, even in the most difficult moments.

" Angela is the perfect guide for this journey...."
I decided last year that I needed a coach to walk with me as I deconstructed/reconstructed my faith and relationship with "church". Angela brings a depth of knowledge, kind spirit, and is the best kind of coach...the kind who helps you find the answers within!

7 Ways to Deconstruct without Overwhelm introduces you to the same tools that help my private coaching clients figure out where they stand, and what unconscious beliefs they holding onto.
Here's a peek at what we will cover in
7 Ways to Deconstruct Without Overwhelm...
Who we are
In order to know where we are going we have to know who we are. In this module, we'll explore our beliefs about ourselves, and why we are here.
Who God is
You’ll need to be aware of your beliefs about God if you’re going to deconstruct your faith. In this module, we explore what Toxic Religion told us God is, and what beliefs about God you may want to keep, or toss.
What is the Bible?
The Bible is a book many were taught is infallible and the word of God. This module teaches you how to see the Bible with a fresh perspective, and to figure out what the Bible means to you.
What is the Church?
You've discovered your own beliefs, now it's time to look at the Church. In this module you'll explore what is the church, what it can be, and what your relationship to it is.
Who Are My Neighbors?
We are going to define exactly who those neighbors are that Jesus told us to love and what ‘loving our neighbor’ looks like in real life.
What does it mean to love God?
In this module, we will discuss how Toxic Religion told you to love God, and what it may look like for you during deconstruction.
What am I capable of choosing?
In this final module, we will explore how you have choice in Deconstruction and you get to choose your next steps on your path, regardless of what Toxic Religion has told you in the past.
As a certified life coach, seminary-trained online pastor for 11+ years, and a Faith Deconstruction Coach I have a lot of experience helping people navigate faith...
but deconstruction is also very personal for me.
I learned to be a people-pleaser at an early age because we moved a lot, and it felt like I was always the new kid trying to figure out where I fit in.
When my hubby and I started going to church in our late 20s (because “it would be good for our kids”), I was ecstatic to find out that the rules and expectations were pretty cut and dry. It didn’t feel like legalism; it felt like an instruction manual that laid out a plan for “How to be a better person” and, perhaps more important to me, “How to be accepted.”
After a few years of being deeply embedded in the church, I walked away with a pretty big case of #ChurchHurt and entered a season of deep doubts and wrestling. I was deconstructing from toxic religion, even though (at the time) I didn’t know that’s what it was called.
It took years of self-love, therapy, coaching, and trauma recovery to create a healthy spiritual life that actually nourishes me, without pressure to be who people think I should be…and that’s my hope for you!
Not that you’ll believe what I believe or practice what I practice, but that you’ll find healing and learn to curiously explore what your soul is longing for most.
You won't be pressured to believe what I believe or practice what I practice.
Instead, you'll have the support you need to find healing and curiously explore what your soul is longing for most.
I’ll be a guide walking beside you, not a guru directing your every step so that I get the credit for your happiness. (Gross, right? But we know it happens alllll the time in Christian spaces so let’s just agree not to go there, K?)
Instead, let’s go through the looking glass and get curioser and curioser about the wild sacred holy spaces you’re capable of creating ❤️
