""How easy it is to offer advice, when what is needed is empathy."

For anyone who feels alone in an overly literal, judgmental, hypocritical church - this book is your "me too"."

“I played my role as the good Christian girl and spared everyone the drama of an argument. But that decision to remain silent split me in two. It convinced me that I could never really be myself in church. That I had to check my heart and mind at the door.”
