“Anyone who claims to live in God’s light and hates a sister or brother is still in the dark.  It’s the person who loves sister and brother who dwells in God’s light and doesn’t block the light for others. (Adapted from The Message Bible)

“Anyone who claims to live in God’s light and denies bodily autonomy to both sister and brother is still in the dark. People with Uteri hold more value than a fetus.” (Me)


Family-first? I am “feminist-first.” Ha ha

DBT Skills for Feminists - What skills are you using to deal with Roe v. Wade being overturned?
Get out those distress tolerance and radical acceptance skills pronto!
Prayer, reaching out for support, and writing are what is helping me
Also, wearing comfy clothes
I’d say, “not wearing a bra,” but I’m too lazy to take mine off, so I’m glad it’s a fairly comfy sports bra

When the system fails, go to God-how trite that sounds, but “going to God” is what gives me strength right now.
Also, God is not Santa Claus.  I don’t believe that she will “fix” anything-
“I don’t believe in an interventionist God…But I believe in Love” - I have the same philosophy as Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
(Music group). I believe in the presence of Love and somehow that is enough for me.
“God abides with me”-sometimes I wish that God would do more, but I don’t believe that God is all powerful - just all-present
If God was truly all powerful and yet did not stop so many things from happening, then God would be evil
Love is not evil

“Are you ok?”  Well, I’m not fine, but I’m not going to kill myself either.

CPS Trauma-I have trauma from my jobs as a CPS
We need to hold space for when we are not well. -
This is how we become well.

*I really want to become an Alternatives to Suicide facilitator.  Any Georgia CPS want to attend the August training with me?  I need a co-facilitator to form a group-maybe we could start a zoom group?  (This is a very serious offer. I would like to offer a safe space for  people with suicidal thoughts and feelings. Despite popular opinion, talking about suicide can be life-affirming.)

I would also like to start up a Hearing Voices Network group again.  It would be online.  What day/time would work for you?  

How to promote yourself when totally exhausted? Self Publish a brain dump ha ha ha
