Faith & Spirituality
Stay tuned as I continue to add more beautiful content exploring faith and spirituality, especially pertaining to parenting and loving anyone in the LGBTQ community.
My vision is to explore many faith and spirituality practices to understand basic belief systems. It is my belief that when one understands the "why," they can begin to heal. It is also my belief that all faith and spirituality practices are rooted in love, and it is my mission to help us return to that love, in whatever individual spiritual form it takes.
For example, my faith is Christianity, so that is the spiritual lens through which I see. However, my faith itself looks very different today than it did when I was younger. Love has replaced fear.
I am inclusive of and respectful of all faiths in my life and in my writing. As such, this section was born. While love and affirmation are growing, there is still much condemnation and ugliness. I want to understand the root of all of it so we can work together as people from many faith backgrounds to grow, evolve, and love.
Enjoy the quick video below on the science of gratitude. Gratitude crosses all faiths and is a good place to start.
The Tedx Talk below by Susan Cottrell is one of my favorites! Susan and I discuss in in our interview on Episode 11 of the podcast. Her story and her beautiful message and mission of "Freeing Hearts to Love and be Loved" will bring you hope. If you want to learn more, check out her website and her book, "Mom, I'm Gay."
