This page is full of resources for those of you who need some extra help, comfort, tools, and/or light in your life. Some of the main struggles that have impacted my life include: reconciling my faith to my sexuality, Seasonal Affective Disorder, and combating negative church culture in the LDS faith.
My main goal is to provide a safe place of learning for YOU to feel at home in your skin. It took me many years to be comfortable with who I am. This page is here because I don't want YOU to take as long to realize how worthy of LOVE you are. Be kind to yourself.
Parents, youth leaders, community members, and allies who are reading: thank you for coming and being willing to educate yourself. Thank you for being willing to widen your capacity for empathy & acceptance. Thank you for being willing to stand with those who need comfort.
