Thanks for the welcome! Tulsa is a hard place to be an atheist. I feel for your daughter. I have been in relationships before where the other person is a believer and it usually doesn't work. I'm glad to see that it works for someone! It gives me a bit of hope for myself.
Hey Sheryl, you should come to some of our local meetups. We are doing a lot of skepticon preparations and having a good time in the company of other non-believers. You can see all of our upcoming events here. http://www.meetup.com/SpringfieldFreethinkers/
Years ago Branson was a fun place to visit, now it's mostly a huge sinkhole of corporate greed. I still ride down there a couple of times a year on my scoot, mostly to enjoy the scenery and the ride. It has two redeeming features. There's a great knife store in one of the malls and a really good BBQ joint on Gretna Rd.
