I Am a Lesbian and a Christian

    I'm not comfortable with labeling myself one way

    or another, but I recognize that I'm struggling with something---with these feelings. I am firm in my faith and have found no greater comfort than God, but I don't know how to get past this struggle of if I should or ever will. I'm sort of a "golden child" in my family and I...

    My Story & What I Believe...

    When I was 13, I fell in love for the first time, and it has been the only time that I've ever been in love. We hung out all the time and we were practically sisters - but I realized that I loved her as more than that. Well, I wasn't able to admit this to myself up until about...

    My youth pastor was one of the first people I

    ever came out to. I was confused about my faith but was discovering who I was in my sexuality. He was patient and listened and never said a condemning word. While I don't think he really ever condoned it, he always treated me with love and understanding. One of the things I'll...

    A Test From God?

    I'm a lesbian who's on my church's worship team.

    I play guitar for the church and I had to quit for a while because I know that I'm lying to my church about who I am, but it's not safe for me to come out. My pastor has a very strict no gay policy within my church, and my mom is the same way. I stopped playing for two months...

    As anyone in life, I had to resolve myself to the fact that there was a God and he had to have a good sense of humor, because here I am. Until my mother died 33 years ago, I did not believe there was anything like a God. Never occurred to me how or why I got here beside my mother...

    When I Say... "i Am A Christian"...

    It means I am sinful. I am doubtful. My spirit gets weak. I am stubborn. I get lazy. I question His plans. I insist what I want. I get mad, super mad that I sometimes make curses in my head. There are also times that I find it hard to concentrate when I'm on the church. My list...

    The Short Version Of My Story

    I've questioned my sexuality since middle school, but when you live in the bible belt, you do your best to squash those feelings down deep inside of you, mostly so you won't go to hell. That's what I'd ALWAYS been taught. Gay = SIN. So, in my desire to be pleasing to God and...
