Well, here you are! You’re gay or bi or lesbian or transgender or intersex or queer in some way or other. You may be or agender or pansexual. Or you may not yet be sure what the heck is going on! I understand. I really do.
You may even be in a straight marriage and now you realize you’re not straight. Believe me I’ve heard that dilemma many times in private conversation.
Wherever you are, I am here for you—to help you navigate your questions, your uncertainty, your spinning head, your aching heart.
I want you to find peace. True peace. Peace with yourself… peace in your spiritual life… and as far as it’s up to you, peace with others as well.
You may have been told all kinds of things—about sin, about needing to change, about a requirement to be celibate… THIS IS NOT THAT! AT ALL!
I am all about healing from those kinds of lies, hurtful comments and treatment.
Just so you know, I wouldn’t change my LGBTQI kids, or you, if I could.
It doesn’t matter where you are on your journey, you belong. You may be a Christian, a recovering Christian, an agnostic, or something else: that’s great! You belong!
You may have once believed in God but now—with all the stuff that’s gone down—you want nothing to do with any of it. You may now consider yourself an atheist—and who could blame you?! I understand that.
Through FreedHearts, every day I engage with people who have been hurt and need to be loved. I love them, and encourage them, and offer them hope. And I tell them they are good exactly as they are. They are delightful and lovable and worthy. Period.
And so are you.
I want to walk this road with you—as a mentor, as a friend, as a mom if you need it!
I have no agenda for your spiritual life… except to free you from lies you’ve been told about God, about what God thinks of you, and about your worthiness.
Far too many LGBTQI people are bludgeoned with vitriolic lies—that God is not happy with them, that they’ve disappointed God. Really? What is God—an alcoholic rager you need to tiptoe around lest you get zapped with a lightening bolt?
As a mom and a friend, here’s my promise:
I am here for you on this journey of healing the shame from family, religious and community wounds – to discover how beautiful you are, just as you are.
No exceptions. I will tell you what you should have heard in school, in church and in your family.
Together we will recover the love that belongs to every human being.
Healing is in three areas of your heart: healing with others, healing with God, and healing with yourself.
Some people may have told you that your heart is deceitfully wicked and you can’t trust it… but then… aren’t you being told that by people whose hearts are deceitfully wicked?—so you why would you trust them?! 🙂
Your spirit IS good, and you do know. You know what’s good for you—and you know what doesn’t fit you! You are the expert on you. Nobody else is!
Wherever you are, I want to help you to discover and celebrate the truth and beauty of the real you.
So your heart can be set free.
So you can love and be loved, as you deserve.
