About me

I’m a Christian who, after many years of questioning, finally admitted to myself that I was gay in 2008.  I’ve had three blogs in my blogging career.  The first one was a family blog started in January of 2006, where I wrote about me, my husband, our children and our adventures living in Turkey.  That blog has 807 posts.  In the summer of 2008, I started writing an anonymous blog to deal with my feelings for a friend and about being gay.  I fought with myself, processed, and began to discover who I was.  I continued writing on that blog for a little over a year, with a total of 247 posts.  I started this blog in 2009 in an attempt to mesh the ideas behind the other two blogs.  I needed a home where I could tell family stories, share my struggle, and be me.  While the other 2 blogs are still out there for me to look back on, this is the one I plan to continue.  Welcome to my journey.

  1. Through some weird twist of fate (ok, blog hopping) I found your blogsite.
    The email address might throw you off (go figure when you’re trying to keep it private so I resort to the one I created 10 years ago). But your blogs inspire me and give me a normal sense of hope. What is normal? I don’t know, but right now it’s not having butterflies of anxiety in my stomach.
    Thank you
