jesus girls. a reading of growing up evangelical and female. that’s where i was last night. but its always the after party that is more enjoyable. i did buy the book, out of solidarity to the cause. i too am a ‘jesus girl,’ to coin the phrase. i am part of a circle surviving misconstrued sexual repression, bad exegesis, etc. we exist in more places than you know.
and what we
jesus girls carry with us is unique experiences. seen in the moment as godliness, in retrospect, the beginning of a spiritual unraveling. because truth is, we knew the proper answers (when in doubt, it’s Jesus), we just never knew how our realities would alter when the bottom fell out of our poorly made fishing boats.

oh the afterparty…
jesus girls do drinks right.
