Dear LGBTQ, Yes. I will be your doula.

Dear LGBTQ,

Yes, I am a Christian. And yes, I did say that I accept the LGBTQ community. I absolutely would be a doula for LGBTQ family. Honestly. why would I not.

Because I am a Christian that mean I am suppose to push away, judge, convict and not love or serve human beings that God created because they choose to form a family that looks different than mine?

Uhm…no.

I just want you to know that I support you. I may not fully understand the terms or the different identifying genders for I still have a lot to learn. But one thing i do know is that LGTBQ are human beings who deserve the same respect and support as someone who is not LGTBQ.

Trust that I will not beat you over the head with my bible because I honestly hated when it would be done to me. Trust that I will not tell you how to live: for I wouldn’t want someone to do that to me. Trust that I will respect you enough to call you by your name that you prefer and your identifying gender. I would want the same done to me. Trust that I will provide you with professional service and listen to what you have to say and serve you to the best of my ability.

I want you to know that you are welcomed in my space. And hopefully you read this and truly feel the sincerity of my words.

And yes I would love to be your doula.
