Happy national coming out day! If you’re reading this, and are contemplating whether it is worth the risk to tell the truth of your life, let me settle it for you: it’s worth it. You’re worth it. And as Christians everywhere are so fond of saying: the truth will set you free.
If I had not told the truth, out loud, to my dear Marlei so many years ago, my children would not exist. How could I have known what joy lay in store? I couldn’t fathom it then. I only knew I could not stay silent. I opened my mouth, and here I am, so very alive and in Love.
Be encouraged. Tell the truth.
