    I am so sorry Jordan. Not just for you, but for your mom whose blinders are keeping her from accepting and loving two beautiful people! How is that Christlike? I don’t understand that thinking. I hope she stops taking it personally and has her eyes opened to understanding. Much love to you!!

    I’m genuinely interested in your understanding of The Law of Chastity.

    I heard you speak at the encircle summit this year and this post breaks my heart even more. I’m sorry for all the wrong ideas that are keeping your mom from understanding and accepting you. I’m sorry that you had to choose between a loving lifelong companionship and the church. I was so impressed with you at summit and you really made me dedicate myself to helping parents understand their children and the need to rise above our own discomforts to give unconditional perfect love.

    Hey Jordan my name’s Seattle and I think we’d be awesome friends. I’m a stone throw away from American Fork in Vineyard and want you to know you and your wife are welcome over for game night or dinner anytime! Thank you for sharing your story and for helping us all to see and how to live better.

    I wish I could just shake someone into ditching the dogmatic religious teachings, and not just love, but fully accept the lgbtq people in their lives. I wish I could wake them up in an instant to recognize the blessing of having a gay child. It has opened my mind and heart in ways that were unimaginable before I ditched my dogmatic belief. But then I remember, it took me many years of incrementally deconstructing my beliefs. I am happy to hear you have peace and happiness, and hope that Mom will come around. The sooner the better, but each journey cannot be forced. Bless your heart for the work you are doing and encircle !

    Jorden’s story is so sad to me. Unfortunately a story I have seen many times with friends who had a LDS background. Some of them ended very badly with self harm. I am glad Jordan found love. I just would like to impress her with the fact that what she calls ‘the church’ is only one church. There are many churches that would accept you and your wife openly. Much love.

      I enjoyed your story. I am a gay woman who is living a authentic life. Keep living your truth. Remember love should be given freely as Jesus would do. Allow your mom time to learn thru Jesus. Everyone has there own life time line so be patient and maybe someday you and your wife will go home for Sunday dinner or Christmas. Hugs chickie.
