A Real Testimony

I finished your book. A real testimony to what God does for us.

I Had Tears Coming

I sat down to read it about a week later and ended up finishing it the same night. At first I admit I was a little bored and thought that the whole book was about a battle all in your mind, but as I continued reading this creeping thought came over me of a different...struggle in my own life, that I would never in my right mind have shared with anyone accept maybe God. I've mentioned your book to a few people because it stirs up age-old controversies that I have myself argued and wondered about, namely about whether or not homosexuality can be cured or just managed like alcoholism--you just have to stay away from temptation. I noticed at the end of your book that your struggle story was not like a fairy-story happily ever after ending, but a real life being an "overcomer" in Christ while living with the "thorn in the flesh". By the end of the book I had tears coming, because I agonized with you and better understood the pain others (so many) go through trying to change something so deep in their subconsciousness.

Wealth of Knowledge

Your book is very very good. I’m half way, and continue to be blessed by your insights, your transparency and your thirst for God. Also, you are a wealth of knowledge – your references to scripture and to other authors, etc… You are a student of life and love. Thank you for sharing your story with us as your reading audience.

Was hooked immediately

I purchased this book recently, started reading it and was hooked immediately. It's so well written, but it's so real and heartfelt right from the beginning.

This is a very insightful look into the healing power of God and what he can do with a broken and confused life when one turns that life over to him. Without going into all the lurid details of the relationship, the author gives the reader hope for healing of ANY PROBLEM, no matter how big or how small. She brings to life a God of our hearts who longs to heal the deepest parts of our being, and in doing so frees us to be truly his, showering on us all the affection and love that we have longed for all of our lives.

It doesn't matter what your struggle is in life, and most of us have them, this book will help lead you down a path of healing and restoration with the living God.

About the Author


I'm married (35 years in December 2008) with four grown sons. I love my city (Winnipeg) and my country (Canada) and promote them both to whoever will listen. God (through Jesus Christ) is the biggest part of my life. I am learning to let him take control of all areas--though I do better at this some times more than others.

I have written a book that's recently been published about part of my journey with God. In it I tell how God confronted me with the same-sex attraction issues I've struggled with all my adult life and how he led me through them to a deeper and more meaningful relationship with him. God is amazing—his forgiveness, his love, his movement in our lives when we allow him and so much more. I suspect God will never run out of things to teach me or ways to make me grow and that’s a good thing (though often very painful).

I suppose I can say that what gives me the greatest pleasure in life is telling others about…
