Restoring Hope Network: Healing for the Sexually and Relationally Broken

Help 4 Families 2nd “Hope Gathering” conference was held at the North Paran North Church in Marietta, GA. The day was full with speakers, testimonials and workshops. The following are a few of the comments that we heard “This is such a huge blessing”, “I never thought I would be able to find an event that was Christ centered that cared about my struggle”, “My family needed this”, “When is your next conference?”. The attendees consisted of individuals, family members, and church/ministry leaders who attended.

If you were not able to attend, but wish to purchase CD’s or DVD’s of the Hope Gathering 2012, please contact Denise at We will have a order form to download available in the very near future to order the conference material.

Wife’s Contract

I, Janelle S., acknowledge that I have been deeply affected by the disclosure of Paul’s struggle with Gender Identity Disorder, a struggle, as I believe is sin, according to guidelines for purity set forth in scripture and stands contrary to God’s will for our marriage. Understanding how deeply this disclosure has impacted me, I accept that I share an ongoing struggle..

Voices of Change

The testimonials presented here are the authentic Voices Of Change; men and women who have experienced authentic change in their sexual orientation. Here, they speak for the many Americans and people around the world for whom homosexuality is not naturally inborn.

Prayers for My Husband

Romans 12:1 
In view of your mercy, may my husband present his body as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to you, which is his spiritual act of worship.  I pray that he would not conform any longer to the pattern of the world, but be transformed by the renewing of his mind.  Then he will be able to test and approve what Your will is “ your good, pleasing, and perfect will.

Joan or John?

by Russell D. Moore

Joan asks you, “Am I too messed up to repent and be saved? If not, what does it mean for me to repent and live my life as a follower of Jesus? What is right for me to do?” Show me, step-by-step, what you would say to Joan. Show me what you would tell her to do, short-term and long-term, and show me why in terms of a Christian ethic.
