BENEFITING: FREEDHEARTS INC
We help Christian parents learn to unconditionally love, accept and affirm their LGBTQ kids without sacrificing their faith! We help heal parent-child and church-based wounds. And we help churches become affirming.
And we want to take God’s love for gays to Indiana parents, their gay kids, and the church! :-)
Now that the campaign has ended, we are finalizing plans. We are talking about a parents event in Indianapolis and in Evansville - and maybe a student forum event in Bloomington. These will include a “Mom, I’m Gay - Loving Your LGBTQ Child Without Sacrificing Your Faith” gathering!
Details of this trip will be annonced soon on FreedHearts.org
FreedHearts is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. I, along with my husband Rob, founded this ministry when our daughter came out five years ago. We have five children, and our youngest daughter recently came out as well! We have spent more than 25 years in the evangelical Christian church.
Our journey has revealed to us the Biblical truth of God’s unconditional love for people who are gay and we now share that message, and advocate for the LGBTQ community, with every ounce of our energy. And yes, we still love Jesus.
We reach thousands of parents, and their gay kids, through FreedHearts.org and help them come to know the truth that their love and unconditional acceptance & affirmation of their gay children is consistent with their faith and belief in Jesus.
Our hearts have been hurting with recent developments in Indiana, and elsewhere, and we are committed to responding in love and truth.
Thank you for helping us take this message to the parents, church and LGBT community in Indiana!
The campaign has ended, but please feel free to make a gift if you feel so led. We schedule these types of weekends and parent/church conferences all over the country. We are always in need of, and very grateful for, your support.
