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!”

We are finally making our way through all the seasons of the genius comedy that is “Schitt’s Creek”. (Yes I know we are late to the party – YOU try watching TV with toddlers!)

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.”

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.”

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.”

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”

LGBTQ Story Illustrations for OnePioneer

I was asked to illustrate a little story for this great organization OnePioneer, who gives LGBTQ+ kids the same experience at camps as the other kids. Growing up in a very conservative Christian summer camp [which I loved!], I understand how important this is, especially now. To read the full story written by Michelle Dowling andContinue reading “LGBTQ Story Illustrations for OnePioneer”
