A Story of Faith, Identity, and Authenticity
Cynthia Vacca Davis
Intersexion is a harrowing, hopeful exploration of the cost of coming out—as a sexual minority, ally, or asker of difficult questions—and what it means to come into one’s own. It’s a book for anyone craving a more authentic life, a book about intersections we find ourselves in by no choice of our own.
Faith Doesn't Erase Grief
Embracing the Experience and Finding Hope
Kate J. Meyer, MDiv, LPC
The grieving process is part of being human, but far too often, Christian grievers are rushed into rejoicing that their loved one is in heaven. It is time for a better way to acknowledge that you can struggle with grief and still love God. Licensed professional counselor and ordained minister Kate Meyer walks you through the grieving process, and encourages grievers and shows them how to find hope.
Lost Faith and Wandering Souls
A Psychology of Disillusionment, Mourning, and the Return of Hope
