Do you know that God loves you just the way you are? He wants a relationship with all of His children and loves us all! I've experienced the love of God deep inside and it is a transformative life giving energy! I wrote a book about my journey of understanding God's love and acceptance for all His LGBT children. Do you know what the opposite of fear is? It is LOVE! But too often people say that they need to discriminate against other people in the name of God. God doesn't want to hurt us. God doesn't want us to be afraid. He wants us all to love and welcome one another. God is standing with His arms open wide to us and it's time we receive each other the same way. "If we love one another, God lives in us and His love is made complete in us." 1 John 4:12 Judging others isn't what we need to focus on, loving others is. Today, there is a movement in our country to help create space for all families and individuals in our faith communities, schools, and community centers. God's love is for everyone! Join me, and be a part of this movement! God loved us so much that He created us in His own image. The Bible says, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart." -Jeremiah 1:5
