A Moment of Pride: Jen and Sydney Hatmaker on Being Gay and Loved
For all the parents and guardians of LGBTQIA+ tweens and teens, this course will guide you on the healthiest ways to respond to your child and walk through this journey together.

“I want a legacy dripping with human connection, up to its eyeballs in memories and adventures and weathered storms and gladness. I hope to leave a wake of victory, a life of full integrity. I want to say it all, risk it all, own it all.”
