About Me & My Professional Work
Book Resources - Theology & Scripture
Theological resources that helped me deconstruct my conservative evangelical mind without disgarding, compromising, or twisting Scripture. Everyone will not agree with these authors. However, these authors present their arguments in scholarly fashion. In addition, these authors positions are both plausible and defendable. There are many theological positions such as this in the church where ther are two opposing sides that both have a plausible and defendable point of view. Don’t let disagreement, intimidation, and emotional reactions from robbing you of the chance to hear these authors out. They are worth your read and the time it takes for you to consider their points of view. Click Here!

Podcasts - It's the Story That Matters
In this podcast series, you will hear John J. Smid and I co-host recordings of interviews with former Ex-Gay leaders and others who have been adversely impacted by religious doctrine. John and I hope to share how sometimes well-intentioned religious leaders (which John and I once both were) can lose the most important things – people, relationships, and a shared life journey – because of division rooted in religious dogma. Passion about religious dogma can overpower passion about human souls. When religious dogma wins, human souls are often lost. I hope you will benefit from our candid discussions. Click Here.
