"Being a late bloomer, I didn't realize what the confusion within me was until my sophomore year in college. When I had a dream about a girl. In many ways, it was a perfectly sweet and innocent dream, with a twist: the girl and I were on a date and I was the boy.
I told my friends, making a joke out of the dream, and everyone laughed. What I didn't tell them was how the dream made me feel. I felt more comfortable living out this masculine persona than I did living a a girl. I wondered why I dreamt something like that. What did it mean?"
For many Christians who experience some-sex attraction, wrestling with these feeling in light of faith is a lonely and painful journey. Sally Gary's touching memoir is one woman's recollection of her own journey.
Rather than providing cookie-cutter answers as to why someone experiences same-sex attraction and how to "make it go away," Loves God, Likes Girls gives one woman's perspective on the experiences over a lifetime that impacted the development of her sexuality.
Her story emphasizes that those who experience same-sex attraction are longing for safe places to explore questions, to find community, and to grow deeper in relationship with God.
