Encouragement to Extend the Invitation

March 5, 2018 |

Getting married to a man was hard for my family, but they were really great. I invited all my siblings and even some of my extended family. That being said, I was selective about who I invited. I didn’t feel the need to invite people that I didn’t feel particularly close to or people that I felt wouldn’t be supportive or happy on the day. My parents were still on the fence about things a bit, I think, but they were willing to come to support me and now they love my husband a lot.

Your Children Are Listening

February 5, 2016 |

I put on a happy face during my teenage years. Not even my family knew how much I was hurting. So please understand that your/our children are listening. Negative comments about LGBTQ people or negative comments about gay marriage will hurt. The wounds can run deep and are long lasting.

I can envision Christ wrapping His arm around the shoulder of the one who I’ve deemed my ‘enemy’ and saying “This is my Friend. Please, love them.” He’s giving us the opportunity to lay down our weapons, and see that this person before us can, too, be our friend.
