THE DARK SIDE OF THE CHRISTIAN MUSIC INDUSTRY & DECONSTRUCTION with Lauren DeLeary — Evangelical Christianity to Exploring Spirituality — Purity Culture — Decolonization — Brown Lives Matter — Deconstruction & Reconstruction of Faith — Self-Improvement —

Curious what the Christian music industry is REALLY LIKE? Never quite fit into Christian culture? You little rebel, you. Allow me & my guest, Lauren DeLeary, to hold space for us to question everything about evangelicalism & discuss deconstruction & reconstruction.

I am so excited to have my dear friend and fellow spiritual influencer, Lauren DeLeary, on Enlightened the podcast.

Lauren is an artist and creator. She writes about her human experience as a spiritual being. Since leaving the Christian Music industry, she has deconstructed her faith and taken her audience on this journey through her podcast, DECONSTRUCT, which she co-hosts with her husband, Adam. She is passionate about researching and respecting many world-views, as well as exploring her own Native American culture and spirituality.

Today’s show covers topics like:

  • The “dark side” of the Christian music industry
  • How women are sexualized and policed in Christian culture
  • How purity culture effected us and other women
  • Going from evangelicalism to progressive Christianity to spiritual fluidity
  • How podcasting helps us heal and process our religious trauma
  • Decolonization and why it matters today
  • Brown lives matter, so why are indigenous women missing?
  • What deconstruction and reconstruction of faith looks like
