I'm a (struggling) Christian. I'm a lesbian. (No, it's not a contradiction.) I'm in the middle of taking a year off from university that I've spent "getting healthy" - both emotionally and physically. Rediscovering my faith and reconciling it with my sexuality as well as losing weight through exercise have become my priority during this time of healing. This journal is just a place for me to keep a record of these areas of my life.

My father is a Baptist pastor and my mother is a Baptist pastor's wife. I think, when most people hear the word "Baptist" they think Southern Baptist and imagine a lot of preaching about God's wrath and fire and hell and all of that jazz. I can't speak as to the accuracy of that perception, having never set foot in a Southern Baptist church (what with living in Ontario, Canada and all…). I can't even say if that's true of other Baptist denominations that are closer to home. What I can say is that I've never once heard my father stand in the pulpit and preach against any one particular kind of sin.


My Story (So Far...) )



So if there's anyone out there reading this (and congratulations on making it all the way to the end...) I'd love to hear your story.
