Micah was raised in a loving, conservative Christian family but as he grew older, his relationship with his family dwindled. With this powerful collection of emails, Micah shares the conversations that he had with his mother while coming out as transgender.
We hope these emails can help you — no matter where you're coming from.
You'll see in page after page, email after emaili that the common thread connecting all of Micah's and his mother's emails is love. Despite deep, sometimes painful disagreements, they manage to find a way to stay committed to love and grace.
Giving into another person's anti-LGBTQ worldview can feel easier than "confrontation" in the moment, but over time it slowly chips at your soul. You'll see how Micah manages to stay in communication, pours out love, and holds out hope ... all while staying true to himself and keeping his boundaries.
"Letters of Love" would be much more popular if it outlined a step-by-step process for moving someone "over to your side" of the LGBTQ issues within Christianity divide. But you know that life isn't as simple and you're committed to the process of working it out. You'll see that change is possible, but it doesn't always get tied up with a neat and tidy bow.
