Most likely, someone you know is living a life of quiet desperation, struggling with feelings of same-gender attraction. This book can help.
Part 1 takes us into the heart and mind of a mother and father who did all they knew how to assist their son to bear this heavy burden and face life in the best way he could. "If all youth knew they were loved and accepted, there would be fewer suicides and fewer children lost to the gospel of our Savior."
Part 2 shares the reflections of another young man who wrestles with same-gender attraction but who moves forward with hope. "The Lord promised that he would deliver us, but He didnt say when. He never promised that it would happen by Monday; and He never promised it would happen in mortality. He only said it would happen."
And though these experiences come from the perspectives of men who have feelings of same-gender attraction and their friends and family who love them, the principles and their application discussed here are equally useful in the lives of women who have this challenge.
In fact, this book can teach all of us how to draw closer to the Lord, no matter what our circumstances or burden may be.

Resolute fighter
"This book has allowed me to have greater understanding and give better counsel as Ive met with individuals who struggle with the challenge of same-gender attraction. I highly recommend this book to any church leader who has the stewardship to reach out and give life-sustaining guidance." Priesthood leader
