Who is jackie hill perry?
Jackie Hill-Perry is a writer, speaker, and artist whose work has been featured on The Washington Times, The 700 Club, Desiring God, The Gospel Coalition and other publications. Since coming to know Christ at the age of 19 , Jackie has been compelled to share the light of gospel truth through teaching, writing, poetry, and music as authentically as she can.. She is signed to Humble Beast Records and released her debut album "The Art of Joy" in 2014 and her latest album 'crescendo' in 2018. At home, she is known as wife to Preston and mommy to Eden and autumn.
"I used to be a lesbian."
In Gay Girl, Good God, author Jackie Hill Perry shares her own story, offering practical tools that helped her in the process of finding wholeness. Jackie grew up fatherless and experienced gender confusion. She abused marijuana, loved pornography, and embraced both masculinity and homosexuality with every fiber of her being. She knew that Christians had a lot to say about all of the above. But was she supposed to change herself? How was she supposed to stop loving women, when homosexuality felt more natural to her than heterosexuality ever could?
At age 19, Jackie came face-to-face with what it meant to be made new. And not in a church, or through contact with Christians—God broke in and turned her heart towards Him right in her own bedroom in light of His gospel.
Read in order to understand. Read in order to hope. Or read in order, like Jackie, to be made new.
