Kathy brings rich experience to this unique area of ministry; she was raised by a lesbian mother, and has a daughter who currently lives a lesbian lifestyle. This has led Kathy on a very profound journey of learning how to emulate God's heart of grace and compassion. As well, she has been a vibrant and active member of a strong Christian community for almost 30 years in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She is amply qualified to offer practical and Christ-centred support and advice to Christians who have a family member who is homosexual. Kathy has a background in pediatric nursing, and as a result, has worked with children who have a variety of special needs for almost two decades. She is currently employed by the Toronto District School Board working with children who have autism. She is married and has raised two amazing children, and is now a grandmother.
