Hi! My name is Kelli Mechelke. I grew up in a small rural town in Indiana in the 1980s. After college I traveled the world and spent some time in Eastern Europe. Then I went to The Seattle School of Psychology and Theology and received my master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling. I am a licensed chemical dependency counselor and mental health therapist. During this time, I met my husband and then we moved to Germany for four years. We now live in northern Georgia with our two sons and two dogs.

I have several people in my life that I love and care about that are part of the LGBTQ+ community. I am also a Jesus lover. At times in our American culture these two things can feel diametrically opposed.

I am passionate about helping the Church learn how to love the LGBTQ+ community better and narrowing the divide between the two communities.

The question I consistently come back to as a writer and thinker is, “How do I/we love better?” This is the focus of a lot of my writing and my ponderings on my blog. This question is what ultimately led me to start writing the memoir I am currently working on. I love engaging others in conversation about this question.

If you are curious about how to do this as well, then please subscribe to my blog and we can continue the communal dialogue.
