Saint Theresa's prayer:
May today there be peace within. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content knowing you are a child of God. Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.
This is what Becky Allison wrote about it:
Lee Frances Heller, who died May 19, 2000 at age 81, devoted the last fifteen years of her life to sharing God's love with persons who, like herself, had been scorned and rejected by the established religious leadership. On an ancient typewriter in her Jackson, Mississippi home, she began her newsletter, The Grace and Lace Letter, with the question, "Is God Against Us?" Her passion, sincerity, and wit left the reader certain that God is indeed not against persons like Lee Frances Heller -- persons who happen to be transgendered.
Lee's essays were praised and appreciated, and other transgendered Christian writers joined her in contributing their viewpoints to the Grace and Lace Letters. Over the years Lee heard from dozens of transsexual persons and crossdressers who had nearly lost their faith, but found new hope through her publications. By the time of her death, Lee's works had a readership of hundreds of Christian transgendered persons as well as their family, friends and clergy.
By The Grace of God is a compilation of essays from Lee Frances Heller, Terri Lynn Main, Dr. Rebecca Anne Allison, and other transgendered Christian writers. These essays were published in the Grace and Lace Letter, and its later successor, the Christian Love Letter. It is our prayer that Lee's life and witness will live on through this book, a continuing testimony to our God who loves us even when others may reject us.
