On Being a Christian Lesbian

Posted on January 10, 2013 at 2:44pm 40 Comments

This piece is cross-posted from my old blog from last year, but in posting my previous blog, I think it wise to post my personal journey away from and back to God.  Forgive me if you're a member to both places.

When I first realized I was gay and had my first crush, Adrienne, I was a little southern Baptist girl living in a small town insulated by the ideas of the church, handed down to me by the imposing…

The Word: Perfection

Posted on January 10, 2013 at 1:30pm 2 Comments

“When you’re raised with the belief that perfection is possible, it’s hard to let go of that.”

I just recently watched the coming out videos of Hannah Hart, better known as the host of My Drunk Kitchen, one of my favorite YouTube Vlogs (found on YouTube as MyHarto and YourHarto).  She usually makes me laugh until I cry.  This time, she just made me cry.  She made such a poignant statement I had to replay the statement three times before I could digest the sentence and what she felt. …

(Cross Posted from Open Salon)

I live in Springfield, Missouri, a town most known for being the childhood home to Brad Pitt and the epicenter of Bass Pro, a major merchandiser of hunting and fishing goods.  We have a population of 160,000 in city limits, but boast a metro area (if you can call it that) of around a half million.  We are the third largest city in Missouri, behind my favorite place in this world St. Louis and its rival Kansas City.  Both places are safe-havens of those…
