Shari Johnson in part two of a two-part is an Evangelical Christian mother whose life turned upside down when her 37 year old daughter, Cholene, called her and told her she was gay in July 2002. Shari has just published a book called, “Above All Things: The Journey of an Evangelical Christian Mother and Her Gay Daughter.” In part two of our conversation Shari continues her discussion of reconciling her daughter being a lesbian with her deeply held religious beliefs, attending her daughter’s wedding and starting the PFLAG chapter in Odessa, TX. This podcast should be shared widely with LGBT people who come from Evangelical Christian families and with Evangelical Christian parents who LGBT children.
