My Latest: Toxic Masculinity and Purity Culture


Because of my vocations as a wife and the mother of a son, I took interest in the Gillette commercial on toxic masculinity that caused a stir recently.

A big thank you to the team that worked on this film, please continue to pray for them as it is received by the public.

A Necessary Post – Purity Culture, ChurchToo, and Voices

I am thankful for my husband and his courageous voice today.

“I believe that Virtue in the Wasteland has shown poor judgement in their publication of an interview with Emily Joy, the co-founder of #churchtoo.
