I'm the Same Person : Loving God and Being Gay
I'm The Same Person is a memoir of a girl dealing with two forces that the outside world says cannot go together, but on the inside loving God and being gay is what fuels her to change the world around her. Her story begins with a childhood being unraveled to finding God as a teenager, in the midst of a suicidal mother, an adulterous father, and battling her own identity as a lesbian. Most of her life she tried to "get the gay out" by immersing herself in the church, even becoming a minister for several years, only to face an abrupt exit from the ministry. The people who claimed to be Christ-like would ask her to leave because she was gay. A crisis of belief sets in and thrusts her into a deep depression. She once was found, but now she's lost. The story continues with her embracing who she is and who God made her to be. She finds love and marries her, although so many detractors continue to assume their role in telling her how to live. Her new calling is to live an incomparable life...putting distance between her and them. Read her story and share with the world. It will give you a glimpse of what many go through with loving God and being gay.
