Had the best time on Saturday at the Star Tribe Circle hosted by Mikailah at the Light Center for Transformation. It was my first time experiencing crystal bowl singing in person and what a joy. Feeling so happy and have such a full cup I am so excited that I finally took the plunge and have been exploring all these new paths that I had previously ignored the calling to. Nothing beats working your magic it’s such a shame we all have forgotten our roots and power but loving embracing mine again 💜💖 plus nothing beats a little me time while my daughter is with her father and before this new baby arrives 🔮🌿🌱🌳💫💗
I can’t think of a better way to finish the week than teaching to a live Hang drum 💕

“It is the journey that defines us, not the labels people try to associate us with.” - Timothy Kurek, The Cross in The Closet
I stand here having come a long way over the last (almost) eight years with my coming out process. It began with high school friends, some family, and on to former teachers of mine. Growing up in good ole Monticello, Arkansas, did not make it easy as I felt I had nowhere to go and no one to understand me and what I was going through. Moving to Arkansas Tech University in the fall of 2013, I was still struggling and struggled that whole first semester. I got involved with Suface (now SPECTRUM) the following spring and started connecting with individuals who had similar stories to mine and connecting with allies who, if not for them, I would not be who I am today. I became a leader and an advocate as I pursue a Master’s degree with the aspirations of being the director of a campus LGBTQ+ Center. I have discovered my love for church again with an incredible family at Central Presbyterian in Russellville and second home at First Presbyterian in Springdale. I also found the one whom I believe is the love of my life.
Yes, I am gay, but that does not define who I am. My journey through this thing we call “life” is what defines me. I do not fit all of the so-called stereotypes in the gay community and that is okay. I am who I am and that is the way I am meant to be.
The power of storytelling is too real and I would be glad to go more in-depth with anyone and also be a listening ear if you would like to tell your own story.
Lastly, in honor of Pride Month, if you are struggling, know that I am here for you. You can come out to me and be your authentic self.
