How do you reconcile with your feminist sisters at church? How do you reconcile your faith with your own feminism? What would Jesus do? And how do we receive and give His love to one another?
“Let’s do this. Let’s…lay down our crafted arguments. I want to talk about this – really talk about womanhood, church, the labels and where we go from here. Because the vicious arguments…and the silencing aren’t working. We are wounded and we are wounding.
Here luv. I want to wrap us up in the warmth of good stories, of strong love. Someday…we’ll stand before the piles of stones that used to be weapons and we’ll build an altar…and then we’ll dance around those old arguments together, laughing.”
– Jesus Feminist
When Meg Abhau’s 13 year old son came out of the closet in 2013, her world turned upside down. Since then, she has not only found the “Mama Dragon” within but has enlisted the help of Mama Dragons everywhere. Listen while Cami interviews Meg and Anissa as they discuss what a Mama Dragon is, why Dragon Allies are desperately needed and how we can ALL become one. Working together, we can create a safer environment for our LGBT youth who are at a high risk of suicide and homelessness.
[Note: all Dragon Dads and any form of Dragon Allies are welcome!]

This book has the uncanny ability to speak to a variety of people: the single adult in the church, married couples, childless couples, parents, divorced members, women of all ages, a member in faith crisis or those with a family member who is, struggling artists and professionals, those in the LDS gay community, and so on…
If you teach or lead single adults in the church, this is a MUST READ in order to better understand your congregation’s church experience and unique perspective.
Join Lindsay as she talks to three women (Gabe, Katrina and Kimberly) about their decision to stop attending church because of issues relating to gender inequality in the LDS church. (Please be respectful of their stories)
