    The LGBTQ Family Survival Guide

    The LGBTQ Family Survival Guide

    In Episode 22 we talked about how we stay in the church as an LDS LGBTQ family.


    When your child comes out, it can feel like you are a new path to the Savior and it can sometimes feel like a lonely path.  In order, to thrive on this new path you need a survival pack.  


    In this episode we are going to teach you 3 tools that will help you not just survive that new trail but thrive on it.


    Thoughts that we referenced in this episode are:


    T: What if it’s ok that others don’t understand yet?


    T: What might be different if you believed your path was perfect for your family and you supported yourself accordingly?


    T: The Church has given us guidance, but as individuals we ultimately go to God for our personal revelation.


    T: I can disagree with some of the Church’s guidance and still be a faithful member.
