    This is aimed at Jessyca. I am so sorry for what you had to go through, but your video helped me in my journey and I am thankful to you for that. I grew up in a world that was even more stark about LGBT+ issues than the LDS church was at the time I joined it. It was ironically the church and your video especially that helped me realize that being Gay was something that might be true of me and helped open the door which was so vaulted shut. I sublimated my feelings really deep because I didn’t have a file for the feelings that I had and I wanted so much to do what God wanted me to do. I started questioning my orientation more seriously after seeing your video and I started talking to God about it and it has been a long process unearthing myself. I thought for awhile I was asexual and bi-romantic. I was in a marriage to a Gay man for 20 years and we were the best of friends and loved each other very much, but ultimately it didn’t work. Finally, I had a therapist get out of me that what I wanted was to be in a relationship with a woman and that caused an explosion of feelings that I had no idea I was burying. I was 48 and feeling all the things I should have felt as a teenager/college student. I took my feelings to God, as that is who I am, and felt so much love and confirmation of who I was and that he loved me as I was and to fulfill the measure of my creation and find joy therein. I am so glad that you found yourself a wife and you two sound so happy together, I hope for you many happy years.

    Really appreciate this podcast and the interviews as well. Thank you all.
