Who we are
is infinitely greater than what we do, have, who we Love, or how we vote…
Heart in Formation is a place to lose labels, dump religion, and hopefully find gems (or just glitter) along the way to understanding/touching our own identity and divinity.
My heart is to expose a misunderstood, and I think often misrepresented God–if we understand the “I Am” better, maybe we will understand the “We Are.” Are we all one great, big, wild, broken but beautiful family in progress?? Might there be a God, and might that God be Love, and might we all be destined for and covered by both outrageous love and unfathomable freedom?Let Your Light Shine-God Made Only One Youing

It’s all going to be OK in the end. If it’s not OK, it’s not the End.

I’m Jasmine, drinking coffee, passionate about people, looking for the rainbows, loving to break walls and examine facets of love. I’m a self-proclaimed “recovering Pharisee” (that is, you can be crazy about God, the Bible, and totally miss *His Heart). I’m a Drum& Bass lover, youth and social justice advocate, believe in #NeverAgain, #NoH8 and active in the fight against sexual abuse of children/youth. (1 in 3 boys and girls experience some form, but who hears or talks about prevention at schools, sport clubs, church groups?)
Great info + free online workshop to help protect children and youth in your life available from Little Warriors here.

*I use He and His as simple pronouns for God, but fully recognize God with male and female ‘identity,’ (for lack of a better word). I believe this is evidenced throughout the bible but most blatantly through humanity. If you want to ponder more, check this 2-pt post, “Transgender God” here.

The story of @JeromeElam (eg CSA/CSE-child sexual abuse/exploitation) flipped my life and I wrote The Ax at the Root–Why I Cut Down my Grapevine–or, why the whole world could end if just one child suffers.
But I also wrote an open letter to anyone involved in the abuse, and a post expressing God’s Love goes deeper than our worst mess. Please share these widely as many people in ‘regular circles’ can be trapped in this darkness, thinking there is no love or hope possible for them.

To all who were ever abused in any way, I’m your fierce ally.
