When your child reveals that he or she is attracted to the same sex, how you respond may have a lot to do with your faith. Doesn t the Bible say that s wrong? Will we have to leave our church? Worst of all, you may wonder, Do I have to choose between my Christian faith and my child? Susan Cottrell is a mom who has been there and wants you to know that loving and accepting your gay child does not mean abandoning or even compromising your faith. This is not a book about the politics or morality of homosexuality. This is a book about how to respond with love and support during this vulnerable time for your child. With practical advice and heartfelt encouragement, Cottrell guides readers through the fear and uncertainty Christian parents of LGBTQ children often feel.

Susan Cottrell is a prominent voice for faith parents of LGBTQ children. She is a teacher, theologian and counselor with years of biblical study and discipleship experience. She is the Founder of FreedHearts, a ministry to families with LGBTQ children, and served as the Vice-President of PFLAG Austin. She is a highly sought after speaker and, most of all, a loving Mom and a fierce ally and advocate. She spent 25 years as a leader in the evangelical church and now studies at Austin Seminary. She and her husband have five children, two of whom are part of the LGBTQ community. They live here in Austin, Texas. www.FreedHearts.org
