When LGBT+ loved ones come out, families can experience shock. Emotions erupt. Words spill. Relationships become disconnected. One courageous disclosure can be met with a response that communicates, "I don’t understand you.” Meanwhile, in the church, LGBT+ people often face impossible hurdles and suspicion about their faith.
Guiding Families of LGBT+ Loved Ones: The Essentials Edition offers a relationally honoring, biblically sound path forward.
The Essentials Edition offers 42 pages of the most essential guidance for Christian pastors and parents when an LGBT+ loved one comes out. Filled with practical, ready-to-use relational tips; answers to common questions; and explorations of grief, parental influence, and relational care, Guiding Families is beautifully presented in a magazine-like format.
