    Yes I am both transgender woman

    and Christian. So with that said where do I go for support? Men's groups, I did that before I came to terms with who I am, and it was okay. It just was a little off and now I know why. But now knowing who and what I am I just can't see myself going to a men's group anymore...

    God'S Kingdom Is Diverse

    Last June, I came out to my church family as Gennee. It was one of the best events that happened to me. God created us as we are. His plans aren't ours and for some, they cannot grasp a hold of the fact that God's kingdom is rather diverse. Reading through scripture not all of...

    Why?

    I am a Christian, but I'm also transgendered. I knew I was different long before I became a believer. It's not sin to be transgendered but it does beg the question why a God who loves us could let us be born like this. Despite this belief, it has caused me much pain and grief as...

    For most of my life, I have struggled with my

    identity as a transgender. It caused me to question God. What is His purpose for me? Why would he make me this way? I could only see it as a kind of curse. I felt betrayed because everyone I knew was "normal". Their bodies fit what they felt inside. Why didn't mine? I felt...

    For The Transgendered A Christian Walk Can Sometimes Be Quite A Struggle.

    We can get lost in an uncaring church, but we can ask God with prayer to teach us in His ways. A portion of the 86th Psalm: Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. I will glorify your name forever...
