    Sounds like one of the X-ministries gay conversion programs where the gay person aligns with heterosexuality. Then a year or two later they resurface as gay again. My guess is that she will return to rationalism after her sponsored talks, paid interviews, and other revenue streams dry up. Notin that says that a secularist can't also be an opportunist.

    Dear Leah,

    What wonderful news! Welcome home!

    As a former atheist, I am so happy about your growing awareness of the Lord! A similar search for the source of truth and goodness led me to re-embrace God in general, and, eventually, Jesus Christ in particular. Knowing that faith is ultimately a gift of God, I pray you will continue to listen to His voice and respond to His Truth and Love -- He is always speaking to us.

    By the way, part of my devotional life involves ongoing prayer for all atheists; I hope yours will, too.

    Yours in Christ,

    It is very easy to go forward and look for God, just question yourself how, why, existed and by looking at your surroundings. Work with mind and gut feeling, not on other's opinions. Look up and search!

    She believes in a source for moral law, therefor Yahweh?

    That's just dumb. Has she read the bible?

    Why not deism?

    Actually, "Converts" becomes more passionate in expressing their faith when compared to those "born-in." They are modern day St. Paul.
