The great Susan Cottrell returns to the Pews today all the way from Australia! She is joined by Hannah DeSha Limitiaco making her first public appearance to tell her story here.
Hannah refers to Susan as her “Mamacita” and for good reason! Susan was called “The Mother of All Mama Bears” by OutSmart magazine. She is a prominent voice for faith parents of LGBTQI children who has been featured on ABC’s 20/20, Nightline and Good Morning America, on NBC News Out, on The Advocate Magazine’s viral videos – as “our favorite affirming matriarch.” She is an international speaker who was featured on the TED stage for 5,000 people at TEDxMileHigh, and whose TEDx talk will soon surpass one million views!
Through her nonprofit organization—FreedHearts—Susan champions the LGBTQI community and families with her authenticity and tender-hearted zeal.. Her books “Mom, I’m Gay”—Loving Your LGBTQ Child and Strengthening Your Faith; True Colors – Celebrating the Truth and Beauty of the Real You; Radically Included – The Biblical Case for Radical Love and Inclusion; and Be the Love You Want to See in the World are critically acclaimed. She and her husband Rob have been married for more than 30 years and have five children, two of whom are in the LGBTQI community.
During the power-packed podcast, we learn hear again Susan’s amazing story, meet Hannah and her beautiful story of triumph, and find out that the same exact number of people reached out to Susan and Glenn when they left their respective congregations—ZERO!
It ain’t going to be boring, that is for sure.
