Meet Brenda Marie Davies of God is Grey

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brenda Marie Davies.

Brenda, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Well, as a lover of Jesus I was growing disheartened by the us vs them mentality growing among Christians online. Trump and Pence never resonated with me – as a matter of fact, I found it appalling that Christians were backing them up. So, I began ALL CAPS screaming my opinion on facebook which harmed a few core relationships – including causing a rift between myself and my Trump supporting father.

I quickly learned these heated arguments were ineffective and counterproductive. Instead, I began to search within and discover why I was so heated in the first place.

Christians have such a bad rep as anti-LGBT+ and anti-sex when we’re meant to be promoting love, unity, grace, forgiveness and generosity.

So, I picked up a camera and began speaking those truths. I wanted to share with others the 16 year journey I’ve been on as a Christian woman. I wanted other intellectual, science-believing, sex-positive people to know there’s another way to follow Jesus. A path that affirms LGBTQ+ people and encourages sexual integrity over “purity”. I wanted to help people grow and reunite them with the faith they’d lost in the Christian community.

In one year, God is Grey amassed millions of view minutes and 23k followers in 39 countries. Our community empowers people to abandon shame and to trust their own, unique personal relationship with God.

Has it been a smooth road?
When I began, I asked my friends for their moral support because I feared about 98% of people would attack God is Grey & 2% would say, “Thank you! I’ve needed this my whole life!” My channel was created for the 2%.

However, to my utter surprise, that number flipped. The vast majority of watchers have given me love since day one and I’m blown away.

Am I attacked, threatened, and hated by a slew of “Christians”? Yes. But they’re in the minority. If anything, God is Grey has reminded me that our community is full of gracious, kind people with wide-open hearts.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with God is Grey – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I’m most proud of the diversity in the God is Grey community. Although I’m a Christian, non-Christians, atheists, agnostics, buddhists, Muslims, witches, satanists, etc all have commended the channel for making them feel at home. I certainly don’t agree with everyone in my community but I’m over the moon to have them there and I welcome them in the conversation. Whether someone’s watching my videos for religious knowledge or out of sheer curiosity, I’m honored to be a Christian they trust to love them. Because that’s what I’m here for: to love people.

Jesus was a feminist, a teacher, and inclusive to the core. God is Grey aims to reflect His character.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and the least?
Los Angeles is a hub of diversity, creativity, and epic story- telling. I’m constantly fascinated by conversation and enamored by the art my friends’ create daily. It takes a while but once you find “your people” in LA, you can fly to greater heights. I love supporting my friends and accepting their support in return.

My least favorite thing in LA is inauthenticity. I understand that people lie or cheat or steal when they’re afraid they don’t measure up. And let’s be real: this city’s got high standards. But I hope we’ll all tell the truth- in relationships in our work and always.

Because remember: nothing is more intoxicating or authentic than seeing someone’s heart on their sleeve. I respect that.
