Friday Night Post #3

I’ve had a hard time staying on track this past week. I’ve been a day behind in life as well as on the blog, so this weekend will be about catching up.

I’m working on improving the “Resources page.  I’m asking you all for resources relating to faith, self-care, trans* existences, and POC existences.  What do you read? What are your go-to educational resources?  Have you read/seen/listened to anything lately that’s changed your life?  I’d love to know about it.  Leave a comment on this post or message me through the contact page.

I’m still in the process of trying to find a new name and a new look.  I’ve narrowed down a couple different themes, but the name will really help to determine which one I pick.  If you have any suggestions, let me know.

Thanks for reading ya’ll!
