I found the love of God in a whole new way once I told the truth. I wanted to share that story and be a witness to the unconditional love of God!

OtherWise Christian 2: Stories of Resistance
Ryan’s chapter touched us both deeply, and I knew then that I would kick off the second section of OtherWise Christian 2 with his testimony. When you been rejected plenty, it’s easy to want to sit back from the fray, but Ryan’s testimony reminds us both what is as stake and what love can do.
Ryan’s chapter, “Finding Freedom,” will appear in OtherWise Christian 2: Stories of Resistance (March 2020) from OtherWise Engaged Publishing.
