A Healing Butterfly (God sent many different butterflies to me to help me to believe in His grace).

This is a Summary of my story. I look forward to hearing yours. We all have a story to share!

I was born into a Roman Catholic family in Los Angeles, California. We were close and I was cherished as the youngest and only girl in the family. When I was very young I knew I was attracted to some girls in the city I lived in. When I was an adolescent those feeling grew, but I had to deny them. I was told by several Catholic counselors that being gay was not an option for a Catholic woman. I was so devoted to God that I thought being gay was something I couldn't be. I tried to date men and developed some lasting friendships, but I was not in love with any of them. They were more like brothers. I thought I could give up the idea of marriage and children and become a nun. As a strong willed young woman with a zest for travel and playing outdoors, that plan didn't work out so well.

In the year 2003 I tried out an Episcopal Church, just to see. It was so similar to the Catholic Church I grew up with, and yet it had something special. In the Episcopal Church women and gay and lesbian persons could be priests. This was something I had always thought was lacking in the Catholic Church. I fell in love with my Christian community and made some lifelong friendships with some amazing men and women. However, I did not have support to lead a life as an openly gay woman. This hurt me deeply, but a few special friends named Katherine and Rose took me under their wings and taught me of God's love.

It took a while, but in dreams, and meditations I felt and could see that God's love was much stronger than I ever imagined before. I loved God, but I didn't know just how Much He loved me! He loves all of His gay and lesbian children. He loves us unconditionally and will fight for us until the end of time. When I realized this I wanted to find others who thought this way because this energy of thought was more life giving to me.

In 2011 I began my search for a new Episcopal Church and in January of 2012 I finally found one I loved: All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena, California. It has been quite a ride! I have learned to look at the Bible in new ways and have discovered what inclusive community looks and feels like. We radiate with love at All Saints and we can be ourselves there!

Today I am blessed, and also feel called to share the love of God and my story! There is much more to share with you then is written here, but I do that in speeches given in person.
