COVER REVEAL – “Still Stace”

Friends!! I am SO EXCITED to finally share the updated and official cover for my YA illustrated memoir, “Still Stace”!! I feel like I have been sitting on this for years! (It’s been a few weeks.

Out In Faith – March 19-21, 2021

Updated March 22, 2021 – What a great time with friends this was! Definitely the closest thing to being all together, and I can’t wait for when we can be together physically again!

“Shipwreck Over Safety” Podcast

Earlier in January, I taped an episode of the podcast “Shipwreck Over Safety” with Dallas Verity & Blair Roberts. We had a great conversation about art, deconstructing our faith and sexuality. If that interests you, give it a listen! Available below, and also on Spotify & Apple podcasts.

Queer colouring pages!

I did something fun with OutChristian – an awesome organization that works to connect LGBTQ people of faith! They asked me if I would want to design & draw some queer-themed colouring pages, to remind us all that we will once again be able to gather with friends in our communities. Of course, I neverContinue reading “Queer colouring pages!”

It’s complicated.

I almost didn’t post this. But I’m 40 now, so screw it, I’m not editing myself anymore! I wrote this after a recent visit with my parents. (I hid this from them  on social media. Because I do love them and don’t want to hurt them. But being honest about hard things is important.) ThisContinue reading “It’s complicated.”

Pride.

It’s the last day of pride month. 🌈 2020 has felt more formative for me than ever. My gay Christian journey started when I was 16, but now that I am (so very) close to the big 4-0, I feel like I am just beginning in a lot of ways. I’m truly learning what itContinue reading “Pride.”

BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT!

Friends, I can’t believe I get to announce this dream come true. If you don’t mind indulging me, I will give you a quick timeline of how I got here: I have always wanted to do a project combining my art and faith journey as a gay Christian. In late 2018 I thought of doingContinue reading “BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT!”

Being a guest on “Blessed Are the Feminists” podcast

A few weeks ago, the kind folks at the “Blessed Are the Feminists” podcast invited me to be a guest, and talk about my experiences with Christian feminism, having LGBTQ faith and being a gay Christian mama. It was such a great conversation, and I think, so important to have right now! The episode airedContinue reading “Being a guest on “Blessed Are the Feminists” podcast”
