When a Husband thinks he’s a she

When a Husband Thinks He’s a She What do you say to a woman who shares the painful secret that her husband thinks he is a woman? In a world where right is wrong and wrong is right, families and the church are confronted with a variety of issues that often are not as black and white as they were one generation ago.

This procedure requires that you bring your aching, burning, heavy heart full of troubles to God, the Great Healer, who can easily perform your spiritual heart bypass. You might falsely assume you need not go to…

That thought may have crossed Horatio Spafford’s mind when he crossed the Atlantic on his way to reunite with his wife in England and passed the very spot where his four precious daughters had drowned. If he did ponder that question, he must have prayed and found solace, for it was on that voyage that he wrote the famous hymn titled “It Is Well with My Soul.” When peace, like a river, attendeth my way, When sorrows like sea billows roll; Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say, It is well, it…

Healing & Restoration: Written by former transgender

Healing and restoration is a process. Let’s be honest, it doesn’t happen as quickly as many of us wish. I had to first begin to painfully expose my secrets to trustworthy brothers and sisters in the Church.
