Can God still love me in spite of what I’ve done?

My teen is asking about LGBTQ, trans, and their pronouns.

How could I ever heal from my sexual trauma?

Hi, I’m Juli Slattery and I’d love to help you make sense of God and sex.

I’ve always had a passion for helping people apply the Bible to every day life, so I became a clinical psychologist. For the first few decades as a professional, I juggled parenting with part-time clinical and ministry work. About a decade ago, I sensed the Lord calling me to specifically focus on sexuality. Everywhere I looked, I saw sexual pain and confusion that the church didn’t seem to be addressing. I’m so glad you found this website and hope that the content and community will be an encouragement to you on your journey!
