Judy, 55, grew up in the Church of the Brethren, an Anabaptist Christian tradition. She is not in a spiritual community now but finds her spiritual expression outside. Judy was in a heterosexual marriage for 30 years and has two grown children.

"It all made me more loving, accepting, and patient with life," she said of her journey spiritually and with her family. "It often turns out in the long run that it's good, that it's right."


Judy recorded her story on June 23, 2013 at her home in northern Indiana.
