Weeks after author Jen Hatmaker parted ways with orthodox Christianity and said same-sex marriage could be “holy,” another figure in the Christian blogosphere has gone a step further – divorcing her husband and beginning a relationship with lesbian soccer player Abby Wambach.

According to People.com, Glennon Doyle Melton – who blogs at Momastery – divorced her husband of 14 years three months ago and has now “found love” with the well-known USA women’s soccer and World Cup star.

Melton went public with the relationship in a lengthy post on her Facebook page, where she extols her new partner for her caring attitude and her love for Melton’s children and former husband. She wrote that she is also ready to display a “different type of leadership” than she has in the past.

“[N]ow it is my job as a leader not to concern myself too deeply about what you think and feel about me – about the way I live my life. That is what I want to model now, because that is what I want for YOU: I want you to grow so comfortable in your own being, your own skin, your own knowing – that you become more interested in your own joy and freedom and integrity than it what others thing about you. That you remember that you only live once, that this is not a dress rehearsal and so you must BE who are you,” Melton wrote.

Wambach also recently announced that she and her “wife” would be divorcing.

Melton’s journey into the homosexual lifestyle comes on the heels of her avid support for same-sex marriage. Since 2013, she has been writing about the subject and calling for greater levels of acceptance for gay people by the church.

In June 2013, she wrote on her blog that coming to her stance on homosexuality felt like a “life and death decision.”

“I know my Jesus, I love Him, and I think if he needed me to believe that homosexuality was a sin, He would have mentioned it. He didn’t,” Melton wrote on the blog.
