Dear Transgender Man…

I would like to extend an invitation to you that I hope you’ll seriously consider. I’m sure it isn’t easy living your lifestyle, and I won’t claim to understand what it’s like. I’m sorry that people sometimes treat you badly because you are different than they are, or that you make choices they wouldn’t make. Here’s the invitation: come use the men’s bathroom.

Our Sisters in Loss: Caring for Mamas with Empty Arms

Original Post – 4/6/2016

There are few things that can bond you to another like the pain of losing your child. It is that exact connection that brought Erin of Deafinite Designs and Henderson of Madison’s Closet.

The worth I speak of has nothing to do with monetary value and absolutely everything to with understanding the value of self. There is so much going on in the world that tells us to look or act in certain ways that goes completely against God’s design for us. In the Garden of Eden, Eve was not just haphazardly placed there as an afterthought. She was God’s gift to Adam, because it was not good for him to be alone. She was handcrafted by God to fit perfectly together with Adam.
