by Wendy, 49 2001 was a watershed year for me. Long before that year, I felt that I was gay. In fact, for a long time I believed I’d been born gay. Sometime between 1999 to 2001 I read a Christian book that challenged my assumptions. Despite living in a lesbian relationship, I decided to … Read More »

Before coming to Living Hope, I felt hopeless. I had no real, authentic relationship with the Lord. I saw Him as an angry man who had His constant eye on me, looking for things I did wrong. My feelings are fickle. I can be worshiping God one moment, and then the very next moment, choose sin. But, I’ve begun to realize the love God has for me, and that’s changing my heart.
“I’m attracted to guys” was what I told my parents for the second time in January of 2010. I’m not perfect, nor are any of the ones who came to this ministry before me, but I can honestly say I’m the most content and stable I’ve ever been, and that is a direct result of the work of Christ through the ministry of Living Hope. Not only has it changed my life and the life of my family, but also my family and I have had the privilege to refer people around us to the ministry and point them towards Christ in the area of sexual and relational brokenness.
