Chrissy Holm is a writer, editor, and project manager and is the host of the podcast Stirred By Words, where she talks about words, writing, and wellness. Her writing has been featured on Everyday Health, National Council on Aging, Gizmodo, Lifehacker, and more. She joined me on Uncorking a Story to talk about her latest book Finding Sunlight: A Coming-of-Age Memoir about Love within the Wreckage of Purity Culture.
- How her book began as a way to work through her parents divorce but ended up being about so much more.
- Her experience with purity culture and what it took to move beyond confusion and shame into a place of greater clarity.
- How embracing her bisexuality helped her find her individuality and learn what love means to her.
- Her advice for teens (and adults) who may be struggling to find their true selves amidst restrictive church teachings.
