Share your Voice

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  While I didn’t quite make it to a thousand words a few weeks ago when I wrote this article on why our Christian family supports Marriage Equality, sharing my thoughts has been a truly humbling and faith-affirming experience.  Now, Believe Out Loud has picked it up and is asking for people to show their support with a picture similar to ours below.

If you, too, are one of the many allies out there, check out Believe Out Loud and consider sharing your own voice with a “This ______ (mom, dad, sister, brother, student, wife, couple, family, etc.) Supports Marriage Equality” sign.  

You can post photos on Believe Out Loud’s Facebook page or submit them directly to
We chose to include our boys in our picture as we felt it represented the idea that we will do our best to raise them so that they know we will love them as God made them.  I also know they are too young right now to have serious questions about the emotions and serious debate over the issue of homosexuality, society and Christianity.  Which, I completely understand is a more delicate area with older kids.  It is my sincere hope that one day we can use this as a teaching tool when they are older.


  1. I live in Tennessee where a few years ago we voted on a bill to allow marriage equality. The measure lost by 80%. I was one of the 20% who voted for it. I’m afraid we have a long way to go, but posts such as these help. Kudos to you.

  2. Wow, thank you for sharing this. I just went and “liked” the Believe Out Loud Facebook page and I am going to research this movement more. Beautiful family picture!
