Hi, I’m Bailey.
My name is Bailey Jo Welch, and I am a Christian non-fiction writer. I am also a LGBTQ advocate and creator of Making Room on the Pew: a book meant to begin a movement focused on fostering reconciliation between the LGBTQ community and the conservative Christian Church through respectful, grace-filled conversation about faith, the Bible, and sexual orientation.
A few of my favorite things are books, hiking, coffee and Mexican food. In pressing through hard seasons of life, I have joyfully (and surprisingly!) discovered the glory of God everywhere, especially in life on the water and around the table.
I write for a few places online; take a look here.
If you’d like to talk about the intersection of faith and sexuality, or you would like to learn how to make your church more welcoming to the LGBTQ+ community, head over here.
