A simple and clear message--well done, Julia.

Letting Go of God is quite good. Ms. Sweeney gave religions and quasi-religious philosophies a more-than-fair shot before becoming an atheist, and her story will speak to those who have an inclination toward spiritual journeys, and New Age thinking. She ultimately rejected all such nonsense, but her willingness to sincerely explore those sorts of ideas will particularly resonate with those atheists who may have found the word "atheist" difficult to embrace.

I would also like to recommend her blog. She posts updates only once per month, generally on our around the first of the month, but I make a point of reading it.
