Rainbow flags at church.

Something big happened recently. And the fact that it fell on my birthday, was just one of those moments I felt God smile on my life – so I smiled back. July 25 was our first in-person church service at Open Door Church since Covid, and that was (CUE TEARS) emotional enough. It was alsoContinue reading “Rainbow flags at church.”

I got my STILL STACE ARC!

OKAY. I didn’t even know this was coming, and when the kids helped me pull it out of the packaging (amid a flurry of screams), my heart skipped a beat!! (Or seven.) I have been working on this for two years saying, “This is gonna be a book!” And now I’m holding it saying, “THISContinue reading “I got my STILL STACE ARC!”

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.

“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.

Wow, what an incredible day today. I am buzzing with gratefulness after spending an hour sharing my story with this beautiful community at SheLoves. I felt celebrated, supported and safe.

Being asked to leave the table.

(Trigger warning: LGBTQ Christian voices being silenced) In September, I was invited to speak at a Christian conference out of Vancouver. I was really excited, because they wanted to include LGBTQ Christian voices, and I love speaking about such things! Their conference is in January 2021, and due to Covid, all virtual. Because of that,Continue reading “Being asked to leave the table.”

This is 40.

Yesterday, I turned 40. I’m not sure how that is possible, when inside I feel no older than 14! Life is (real) messy right now, but I woke up feeling stupidly grateful to be alive, and convinced myself to take my first selfie ever because WELL WHY NOT. Are bathroom selfies still a thing?! (RevealingContinue reading “This is 40.”

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.”
