FOR FAMILIES WITH GENDER-DIVERSE CHILDREN
A Practical Guide for Parents and Faith Communities
If you are looking for support, guidance, and hope that all children are going to be OK, this book will help you develop an understanding of and a commitment to learning, growing, and creating more safe spaces where transgender and gender-fluid kids and their families will be surrounded with the love and support they need and deserve. Rachel Cornwell is the mother of a transgender child (as well as two other children who are cisgender) and a Christian pastor who considers it part of her calling to help parents and families hold on to their faith while also fully affirming all children.
Parents should not have to choose between their child and their faith. They do not have to reject their child or the children of others because their faith tradition has taught them that being non-conforming in one's gender identity is not natural or "God's design." Reverend Cornwell shows that no one need give up their faith in order to love and protect their child. She insist that accepting children of all gender identities is not only compatible with faith but essential for all faith communities of all religions and denominations.
