Jeff Johnston, Focus on the Family
Many people with same-sex attractions choose not to identify as homosexual, lesbian, gay or bisexual. Instead, their primary identification comes from their faith in Jesus Christ. They identify as Christians, followers of Jesus and God’s children. And they choose to live according to biblical truths and values, reserving sexual expression for marriage between a man and a woman. We understand that this may be a difficult struggle, requiring help and assistance from other Christians. Focus on the Family is committed to supporting those who choose this path and the following articles will help explain some of the struggles that those with unwanted same-sex attractions encounter. For those making this journey, and for their families, friends and churches, these articles also give wisdom and point to other helpful resources – articles, books, support groups and counseling referrals.

Shattered Dreams, New Hope
Shattered Dreams, New Hope is a curriculum specifically geared torward any Christian parent or caregiver of a child who identifies as gay or transgender. The audience we have in mind is parents who are in distress over their son or daughter’s choices to persist in wrongful belief and sin, yet desire to hold true to biblical view of sexuality and gender. Although much of the content may apply to loving a child who desires to walk in repentance and holiness in the context of their sexual and gender struggle, this material is not primarily geared toward those parents, instead, it is directed towards parents whose child either rejects biblical sexuality or believes they can reconcile their newfound sexuality with the biblical worldview.
