The daughter of Vice President Mike Pence has opened up about her personal faith journey and admitted she went through seasons of profound doubt. Charlotte Pence, 25, released her new book, Where You Go: Life Lessons From My Father this week, in which she details many of the words of wisdom bestowed upon her by her politician father.

It was during a year abroad studying in Oxford back in 2015 that Pence found her faith in God dwindling. In an interview with The Christian Post, Pence admitted that she "turned away from God" and had "not wanted anything to do with religion" at the time.

"I was interested in atheism for a while," she admitted, before qualifying that she "wasn't as interested in Christianity," but that she felt like God was pursuing her the whole time. Writing about this time in her new book, Pence said she "stopped going to church and reading [her] Bible," and instead chose to spend "much of the year" delving into atheist philosophy.
