Most likely, someone you know is living a life of quiet desperation, struggling with feelings of same-gender attraction. In an effort to help Latter-day Saints understand and reach out to those who suffer from this difficulty, Fred and Marilyn Matis discuss how theyíve dealt with the knowledge of their son Stuartís challenge with same-gender attraction, and how parents and others can reach out with love.
In addition, Ty Mansfield discusses his own challenge and how he continues to go forward with faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Lord promised that he will change our hearts, but he didnít say when, writes Mansfield. He never promised it would happen in mortality. He only said it would happen.
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 to draw closer to the Lord, no matter what our circumstances or burdens may be.
