Oprah Winfrey Network’s “Iyanla: Fix My Life.”
In response to thousands of new connections and questions after the show aired, I want to address the questions about faith and sexuality, as well as other LGBTQ-related questions from my followers. Check out episodes from the show here.
My Goal Is to help you lead a successful and authentic life.
I hope I can ‘fix’ a few lives with affirming and inspirational messages for people who need guidance in coming out, and dealing with family, friends and the Church. This is my way of paying it forward. Read more of my story here.

This is a judgment free zone!
Even though I’m a faith leader, I am also a flawed human being who’s had to come to terms with past transgressions, and ask for forgiveness from loved ones that I’ve hurt. Everyone makes mistakes and your past doesn’t matter here. As long as you’re ready to make a change in your life, you’re in the right place!

I'd like to share a little bit of my background with you...
I grew up in Virginia in a large, God-fearing home with six brothers, two sisters, and loving parents, who celebrated 56 years of marriage this summer. So my sexual proclivity posed a problem given my background and my mother being the church organist. I repressed my feelings, thinking I was going through a “phase” since my faith dictated that I would be condemned to hell. But after support from loved ones and a new interpretation of the Word, I have embraced my true self. I ended my five-year marriage to my loving wife to live an authentic life with a renewed sense of clarity and personal acceptance. Long gone are the feelings of shame and damnation. I have realized the power of God’s love in my life. Learn how you can do the same and read more of my story below.
