My goal is to change the human conversation on love and inclusion. Every day, Christian parents reject and shame their LGBTQI children. Those kids are in a crisis situation and are at the highest risk of homelessness, substance abuse, self harm, and suicide. Youth are dying. Families are being destroyed.

As the mother of two LGBTQ children, a follower of Jesus, a woman, a theologian, I am committed to standing up, speaking out, and sharing a message of radical, lavish love & inclusion.

Through my speaking, writing and video content, I help free the hearts of faith parents to accept and affirm their LGBTQI child and come to know that's actually consistent with their faith; free the hearts of those in the LGBTQI community to heal shame from religious, family, and community wounds and internalized homophobia; and free the hearts of those in church pews and pulpits to be more inclusive.

When I began this work in 2013, I struck a nerve within the Christian and evangelical communities and I have so many opportunities to deeply impact lives. I continue to develop resources -- including comprehensive video courses; new books; and live training and support events.

This has become a fulltime effort for me, and many have asked how they can support me personally. In order to have the time and resources I need to create this written, filmed and live content, it is critical that I build a team of friends who share my heart for these parents, their kids, and the church, and who feel so led to come alongside me as partners.

Your help will enable me to continue to write -- and your stories often inspire my topics! Your help will also enable me to finish new books, develop many additional videos, and travel to speak and meet with parents, LGBTQ, and others.

I have a few small thank-you gifts based on monthly support levels. Please be as generous as your funds allow, as the Spirit leads. We deeply appreciate any amount you are able to give.

I am so grateful for Moms and Dads, those in the LGBTQI community, and friends who encourage me every day with your words, prayers, and support. Thank you so much!

Love, Susan

The whole deal... social media shout out, Rob's CD, autographed copy of my book PLUS a half-hour counseling call/Skype each month AND a visit to speak with a group in your home once in the calendar year. If it is farther than 250 miles from Austin, we might need to work on some travel stuff, and we need to find a date that works, but this can be whatever you like -- speak to a group in your home, intensive personal or family counseling, or just drinking wine and chatting. :-)

Reaching this level of support here at Patreon will give me the personal freedom to take the time needed to write and finish my new book projects, record more short YouTube videos as well as new comprehensive courses, and to travel to gather with MamaBears, speak with parents, LGBTQ and the faith community.

Your personal support of me here at Patreon will help make all of this possible, and give me much needed consistency and peace of mind. I would be deeply grateful. Thank you so very much.  - Love, Susan
