Gay with God: Reclaiming My Faith, Honoring My Story

Born in the rural south in the late 1950’s, Midge Noble was raised in a household with strict parents and fundamentalist religious beliefs. Attending parties or movies was not allowed. Her paternal grandfather, Paw Paw, a fire and brimstone Advent Christian preacher, believed the Bible was the literal word of God and condemned homosexuals to hell. As a teen, Noble felt a calling for missionary work but grew up with a conflicted view of God and the Church. She always felt that somehow she was different, but couldn’t quite put her finger on why. In this frank and heartfelt memoir, Noble recounts her childhood years and her struggles as a young adult with her faith and true identity. Doubting herself and her choices, her inner turmoil manifested itself as bulimia and anorexia, and denial and harsh judgment of her feelings. She didn’t come out to herself as gay until she was thirty years old. Noble’s poignant journey to reclaim her Christian faith shows that a relationship with the God of your understanding is possible, no matter what you’ve been taught to the contrary. Honesty and learning to trust your inner guidance are critical for healthy emotional and social development. For anyone questioning how they can reconcile their faith and their sexual identity, Noble’s inspiring book is a light to shine the way.

New Book: Gay with God by Midge Noble

What People Are Saying

What People Are Saying

Even today in 2023, coming out as queer is difficult. Doing so within the context of any religion remains more difficult still. Gay with God saves lives and empowers LGBTQ folx seeking a deeper connection within circles of faith. As a long-time friend of Midge, I watched her enter St. Mary’s UFMCC as a scared, scarred lesbian seeking strength to continue and hope of salvation. Her journey to healing began that day, and she has grown stronger and stronger through the years. Today, the passion of her faith drives her to lead other hurting people of faith through the briers and barriers hateful religions and religious individuals and institutions erect. Her poignant memoir provides evidence that being queer with God provides persons of faith a foundation for life, a lighted path to travel, and the knowledge that they can remain faithful to themselves and to their God.

Friend networks are a wonderful thing. A writer colleague reached out and invited me to meet another writer, Midge Noble. Midge then asked me to be a guest on her podcast, GAY with GOD!, and a beautiful friendship was born. In Gay with God: Reclaiming My Faith, Honoring My Story, Midge continues her incredibly meaningful work with, and for, those who have been "othered" by the church. With her presence and writing, Midge brings to life the true meaning of the inclusiveness and grace of God's love and invites others to recognize that they, too, can again step into faith and walk with others to bring much-needed growth and change into this world. Those who are LGBTQI+, those who love LGBTQI people, and those who wish to extend the love of God to all will want to read this insightful book, and then share it everywhere!

—Reverend Sharon Langfeldt, United Methodist Elder and current pastor in the United Church of Christ

I was fortunate enough to join Midge on her GAY with GOD! podcast. What a beautiful conversation we had about faith, sexuality, and healing from the pains of a world that doesn't understand the LGBTQ+ community. Gay with God and its honesty will resonate with so many. Midge's experiences, though very much her own, also belong to so many of us. And it's this commonality that will bring healing and open hearts and minds to have some restorative conversations. Midge understands the value of stories and the value of each human being as a gift from God. I can't wait for this book to get into the hands of so many who need it.

Gay with God is Midge Noble's story of self-discovery. It is not merely entertaining and inspiring but is also instructive. In her warm, funny, and unique storytelling style, she blazes a path for others to follow. Midge is proof that you can question and doubt your faith without losing either yourself or your faith and that in fact you will, eventually, find both yourself and your faith.
