With everything going on, it felt most appropriate to share about the challenge of balancing both grief & joy. My message is aboutContinue reading “Speaking in two places at once!”

(Trigger warning: LGBTQ Christian voices being silenced) In September, I was invited to speak at a Christian conference out of Vancouver.

Because of that,Continue reading “Being asked to leave the table.”
