I’ve never shared here before my story of growing up gay in a loving but deeply religious house. Those childhood years meant to mold me into a good Christian woman left deep wounds. I know many of you share similar paths and experiences.
For years I’ve worked on my healing process. On learning to love myself. I imagine that will be something I do my whole life. But through a course of deep counseling last year, I healed some of those long-standing wounds.
For years I’ve wanted to capture that healing and find a way to share my story in the hope that it would help someone else on a similar path. If this is helpful to you or you think it will help someone you know, please share it with them. Sharing our stories is how we help each other heal. My deepest appreciation to other women who have shared their journeys so we all may benefit.
