Rosaria, by the standards of many, was living a very good life. She had a tenured position at a large university in a field for which she cared deeply. She owned two homes with her partner, in which they provided hospitality to students and activists that were looking to make a difference in the world. There, her partner rehabilitated abandoned and abused dogs. In the community, Rosaria was involved in volunteer work. At the university, she was a respected advisor of students and her department's curriculum. And then, in her late 30s, Rosaria encountered something that turned her world upside down-the idea that Christianity, a religion that she had regarded as problematic and sometimes downright damaging, might be right about who God was, an idea that flew in the face of the people and causes that she most loved. What follows is a story of what she describes as a "train wreck" at the hand of the supernatural. These are her secret thoughts about those events, written as only a reflective English professor could.

"In April of 1999, I felt the call of Jesus Christ upon my life. It was both subtle and blatant, like the peace inside the eye of a hurricane. I could in no way resist and I in no way understood what would become of my life."

My daughter recently claimed that she was gay. This information is fundamentally different than I BELIEVE. Butterfield validates to me some of the things I told my daughter earlier, how Satan has used the opportunities (loneliness,pride, hurts, etc) in her life to help her come to her newfound realization. Her words were an encouragement because she comes from a place of education, a place of living the lie, and overcoming. I am on DAY 10 of hearing my daughter's claim. Ms. Butterfield's words helped me to not feel so hopeless. Will my daughter choose to turn this around? IDK...either way I will love her and work on making myself as pleasing to God as possible--I will hate my sin, I will hate her sin--but we will LOVE one another.
