This has been a busy week as the school where I work is gearing up to finish the year.
I just finished reading Gay Girl, Good God by Jackie Hill Perry in the recent past – it is well worth reading, especially if you are seeking alternative viewpoints on homosexuality. Jackie shares her testimony, and her faith shines in this book. I have pasted a copy of my review from Goodreads below.
Gay Girl, Good God: The Story of Who I Was and Who God Has Always Been by Jackie Hill Perry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I found this book to be very insightful. I was wanting an alternative viewpoint to how the homosexual lifestyle is depicted in the news, and this was superb. Since Jackie Hill Perry lived as a lesbian herself in the past, she was able to provide an even deeper perspective. This is definitely well worth reading!

If you are interested in keeping up with my reading list, please visit my profile on Goodreads so you can see it! I recently started a short poetry book and I’m about halfway through a testimony about illegal adoptions in Tennessee – this woman sometimes kidnapped babies, she often misrepresented them to potential parents, and she made every effort to erase their past so that even today – finding relatives is difficult. Some survivors have only been able to do it with the help of Ancestry. Georgia Tann started doing this in the 1920’s and continued through the 1950’s, when she died. She preyed on single mothers and low income families. It’s titled, Before and After: The Incredible Real-Life Stories of Children Who Survived the Tennessee Children’s Home Society.
