floyd3We are all experiencing a new way of life. We are hoping it is temporary, but we don't know exactly when this will end. In the meantime, please do all you can to help globally. Even if there are few or no reported cases where you live, please follow the safety guidelines that are being given. Limit your in-person contact with others and do self-quarantine as much as possible. Wash hands often and eat as healthfully as you can to prevent any illnesses that might be around during this season. Together we can come out of this crisis much stronger.

During this time, find new ways of keeping busy and helping others. Check on friends and loved ones and see if there is anything that is needed. Go to the Kinship website and check out our resources. There are tons of good videos and articles to read and share with friends, family, and pastors. Although the General Conference in Indianapolis has been postponed, we want to do some aggressive outreach programs to Adventist pastors and educators to invite them to learn more about SDA Kinship and our community of current and former Seventh-day Adventists who identify as LGBTQIA+.

SDA Kinship's primary mission remains to promote the well-being/wellness of our members, as well as all the LGBTQ+ individuals who have a connection to Adventism. As Vice President for SDA Kinship, I am here for you during this crisis and I am available via social media and email to chat with you and pray for you and encourage you in whatever areas you need.

After cleaning your closets and organizing your digital photo albums and completing the puzzle on the dining room table, please update your profile and contact info in the member database. Go to and login. If you forgot your username or password the system can help you retrieve and reset those. If you run into a problem, let me know and I will be happy to assist you.
