Help for Those who Struggle with Unwanted Homosexual Problems
This book is written to Latter-day Saint (Mormon) men who want to learn to resolve their homosexual feelings and follow Christ. If you are confused by the notion that homosexuality is inborn and unchangeable and don't know what to do about your unwanted feelings, this book is for you.
This book presents an understanding of homosexuality in the gospel context and provides practical solutions to resolve the personal problems you face. There is hope. I know there are solutions because I have experienced them in my own life.
The process described in this book is not one of suppressing the feelings and controlling the behavior through willpower. The goal is to resolve the inner conflicts that created the homosexual attractions. Although you can stop homosexual behavior in the short term by exercising willpower, the unmet emotional and social needs won't go away until you fulfill them in nonsexual ways. As you resolve the underlying causes, the unwanted impulses will diminish or disappear.
Since your journey out of homosexuality will be easier if you have the support of friends and family, encourage them to read Helping LDS Men Resolve their Homosexual Problems: A Guide for Family, Friends, and Church Leaders, which can help them understand what you are working through and how they can support you in the process.
The book focuses on understanding and resolving the inner conflicts that underlie the homosexual struggle. The homosexual impulse will not disappear until the legitimate emotional needs are met. Meeting these legitimate emotional needs is the key to the healing process.

I have learned alot from this book - including my self worth as a church member.
This is the best book I have ever read on understanding and overcoming same gender attraction. It is truly inspired and well organized. I have struggled with same gender attraction and have searched for a book that truly articulated why I have this difficulty, how it can be molded and changed, and what its root causes are. Many of his assertions reinforce ideas I had already found as I have sought the Lord to help me. He then goes on to exapand and articulate what I have struggled to put into words for most of my life. His book has helped me to know that I am not alone. I now know I can stand firmly along side the author and the Savior as one who is choosing the path of healing and greater peace. I hope that any LDS person who is stuggling with same gender attractive feelings will order this book without delay. It will help you see things as they really are. You will be amazed, comforted, strengthend, uplifted, and filled with hope. I have noticed a dramatic difference in my life as I have internalized the principles and truths in this book and looked to the Savior for healing. I want so badly for others to know the joy and happiness that comes when you really get down to the root causes of same gender feelings and address your real homoemotional and homosocial needs. If you have the desire to change or still have a sliver of hope that you can escape from homosexual tendencies and actions, I encourage you with the most sacred and tender parts of my heart, to buy this book and let its words enter your heart.
