The attendees consisted of individuals, family members, and church/ministry leaders who attended.

“My Daddy’s Secret”
My Daddy’s Secret is the sensitive-often heartbreaking-true story of the effects of a father’s secret sexual addictions on his family-particularly on his oldest daughter, whom he made his confidante when she was just nine years old. Denise hopes this book will provide new insights into the pain such addictions inflict on families-and insight into God’s amazing grace in healing those pains. Denise Shick, an author, speaker, and the Director of Help4Families, a Christian ministry that compassionately reaches out to family members and churches, bringing a broader understanding of the emotional pain and spiritual confusion that people face when a loved one has gender-identity issues.
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
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.
