About

We are infinitely more than what we do, what we have, how we vote, who we Love…

Who is Jasmine @JasNotes?
This is nicer over coffee. Wait a sec, let’s make some. šŸ™‚
People-passionate,Ā  sky-gazing,Ā  beat lover/geek, who works on youth advocacy and taboo topics, and loves to get dirty in creative community partnerships.

Why am I writing?
Heavy empathy and wild thinking spark my writing. I try to be vulnerable and share my heart here. And I try to write for everyone regardless of culture, beliefs, age, whatever.

I mean for this to be a safe space..

I’m a recovering Pharisee (the religious elite who were crazy about God’s word, but blind to *His Heart). Some of my posts have been labelled as heresy or controversial. Iā€™ve come under fire for thinking big about God/Godā€™s Love and daring to hope.

Dumping religion has faithfully coloured the blog.

My hope is to uncover and point to Massive Love, and the unfathomable awesomeness of People.

What do I cover?
I write about Social Justice, American Christian Hypocrisy, and aspects of Unconditional Love through regular life experiences and full-on geek posts.

This is a place to lose labels, be encouraged, think bigger about love, ourselves, our connection, and hopefully find gems (or just glitter) to light our way a bit.

Everything’s going to be OK in the end.
If it’s not OK, it’s not the End. – John Lennon

Hope you feel welcome here. How was the coffee? ā¤

*I use He and His as simple pronouns for God, but fully recognize God with male and female ā€˜identity,ā€™ (for lack of a better word). I believe this is evidenced throughout the bible but most blatantly through humanity. To ponder more, check this post, ā€œTransgender Godā€ here. Or this amazing Love Letter to a Transgender Teen on Spirit Day.


PS., Sexual abuse prevention, and prn-proofing kids is heavy on my heart, especially with so many screens in increasingly younger hands.

1 in every 10 visitors to a prn site is under 10 years.
