Two of our five children are LGBTQ. We spent nearly 25 years in the evangelical Christian church and our own journey has not only led us to unconditionally love, accept and affirm our own children, but to be in full-time ministry to help other parents do the same - and come to realize that this is actually consistent with our faith.
Our love and advocacy for the LGBTQ community is our life's work.
We help other Christian parents learn to love, accept and affirm their gay children wtihout sacrificing their faith. We work with those parents and their kids to heal parent-child and church-based wounds. And we work with the church to help reframe the debate, bring about change, stand against hate, and help them becoming affirming.
We are a 501c3 nonprofit based in Austin, TX. Please visit www.FreedHearts.org for more information on our ministry - and to read our daily blog.
