“Mom, I’m Gay” Book – AVAILABLE NOW!

Mom I'm Gay front cover“When our child told us they were attracted to the same sex, we were shocked. The usual questions flooded us: what would this mean for their life? Would they be safe? Would they ever have children? We truly had no idea what lay ahead. But here’s the realization that smacked us: we were now the ‘others.’  Over the three years following our child’s revelation, we met many Christian parents of gay kids, and realized we were not the only ones to see that the emperor had no clothes. I believe that God is shaking the church until what’s left is the unshakable: God. There IS a way to love your LGBTQ child without sacrificing your faith. We can have more peace than we ever knew possible, and joy beyond our wildest dreams, as our children flourish in God’s inexhaustible love for them. I hope you will join me on this quest.” – Susan

It’s finally here, the book so many of you have been asking for — with a special foreword by Justin Lee, author of Torn and Executive Director of The Gay Christian Network.

Parents are being surprised daily as their kids come out. Many are left shell-shocked, unsure how to reconcile the situation, and unsure how this fits with what they’ve always believed about homosexuality. I know how you feel. This book is straight from my heart, and is a feet-on-the-ground approach to bringing all the pieces together. Perfect for anyone taking a real look at this issue.

  1. I thank God for you sharing this experience with the world. Sometimes we think we are giving unconditional love when really all that’s on the forefront of our thoughts is how we can get this person to change see God as we see him not allowing that person to truly know and accept God as a loving and forgiving father, because it’s us (parents) that have boxed God in (limited) so he can’t do what needs to be done when we are so busy doing it for him. My son recently got out of the local detention center, I have all the same heartaches you’ve experienced/shared. I to have learned to let go & let God. It’s not easy, the tendency to step in can sometimes be overwhelming, but I continue on by God’s grace to let God.

  2. Susan,

    I share this thought with humor and grace. When I first heard the title of your book my initial reaction was that phrase contains the three scariest words in the English language, Mom I’m Gay. Having heard those words myself I can humorously imagine myself purchasing your book at a local bookstore and thinking the cashier is going to know, much like when a single purchase of feminine products is made….everyone knows! Here is the grace part, it will get better. As parents we cannot forget the importance of humor in raising our kids even in the midst of hearing those three scary words. Those words once spoken open up a dialogue and process that is life changing. The scariness eventually becomes reality and we move forward one step at a time in this faith journey. Thank you for writing this “how to” manual.
