This Little Light of Mine

by

This Little Light of Mine is an LGBTQ+ tale of terror (growing up as a closeted Gay Christian in the Evangelical church) that led to trauma (cPTSD, religious trauma, spiritual abuse, sexual abuse, addiction) to what I intend to become triumph.

Join me on my healing and recovery journey towards mental health, spiritual health and emotional health as I find my voice by sharing what happened in my life as a Queer Christian where I was taught that I was not allowed to love.

Hi, My name is James Powell and I want to introduce you to This Little Light of Mine.

This Little Light of Mine is a tale of terror to trauma to what I intend to become triumph. Join me as I find my voice by sharing what happened in my life as a result of being taught that I was not allowed to love.

This Little Light of Mine is a raw, soul-searching journey of healing, forgiveness and recovery. Journey with me as I heal the wounds of growing up gay in the Evangelical Church, being a ‘scene queen’ and seeking validation in the gay village and searching for my worth in the world of advertising and marketing.

This project is my return to love and my starting point in building a progressive and inclusive spiritual community that focuses on bringing people together for healing, forgiveness, joy, abundance and love.

In each episode I will share part of my personal story followed by meaningful and vulnerable conversations with other LGBTQ+ people of faith, trauma survivors, people in recovery or individuals questioning their faith, purpose or relationships.

I believe that healing comes through connection and I’m looking forward to community-generated episodes featuring your comments, thoughts and stories so please reach out and connect with me. I want to hear from you and include you in this community.

To the LGBTQ children growing up in religious communities today, to anyone who may have been hurt by manmade religious dogma and to those who have completely turned their back on God, This Little Light of Mine is dedicated to you.

You are loved unconditionally by God who made you exactly as you are. You are worthy of this love and it is your birthright.

You, your heart, your mind, your body, your spirit, your gender expression, your sexuality and the way you love, are created perfectly in God’s image.

You were created on purpose and your purpose is to fully love yourself, connect deeply with others and share your love with the rest of the world.

Episodes of This Little Light of Mine are coming this Spring.

Subscribe now, invite your friends, your family and members of your spiritual community. I can’t wait to light up the world together with you.

See you soon.

James.
