Jessica Gapasin Dennis (she/her) is a music-/book-/movie-loving California girl living in the Washington, D.C. metro area with her husband and their two girls, ages 6 and 9, and their newest addition, a rambunctious Husky-Terrier puppy. She writes from the perspective of a second-generation Filipina-American and holds an M.A. in pastoral studies from the Washington Theological Union with background theology coursework from the Franciscan University of Steubenville. There are many things she used to believe strongly that she no longer holds true, and has come to realize that changingour minds and changes of hearts are all simply part of being human — and it is a scary and beautiful thing.
