Publisher's Summary

Dennis Schleicher's life has been anything but easy. The growing realization that he was gay coupled with his parents' use of religion to justify abuse and neglect led Dennis to have a very complicated relationship with love, God, and organized religion. After suffering a violent hate crime, forced institutionalization, and heartbreak after heartbreak, Dennis was desperate for love and acceptance - he just didn't know where to find it. Walk a mile in Dennis's shoes and see from his eyes how the only love that can truly make you whole is that of the Savior.

I appreciate his perspective and honesty!

Wow! I didn’t have an expectation on what I would read or what I could learn from Dennis Schleicher but this book didn’t disappoint. I have been taught by great teachers that it’s important to first, try to see another person’s perspective, and second, to seek to know what I could do to be better at helping my neighbor. Because of the author’s honesty, I believe I can strive to be better at having more compassion. I love books that encourage growth and understanding and this book did just that!

Love louder

I love this book. I love how vulnerable Dennis gets about his life and his experience before his conversion and after his conversion. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints and I appreciate him being vocal about his conversion! We should all be like Dennis with our testimonies of the Savior! There’s a lot of work to do to bridge the gap for not only LGBTQ but others who are seeking for truth and light and are held back by the lack of fellowship. Again, thank you Dennis for sharing your story!

Loved it!

Loved the insight the author so freely shares about his conversion to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He is so full of the spirit, it makes me want to be a better person. I smiled, cried and laughed throughout the book. Dennis is a great example of being a disciple of Christ and helping us all come closer to Him.

Very Enjoyable!

I listened to Dennis’ book while driving to Utah, where he just happened to be that same weekend. Oh how I wish I could have met him and told him how much his book touched my soul! My gay son, who is the polar opposite of Dennis, is very hostile towards the church. I’m so glad there are gay people like Dennis who have made the most difficult decision to join the church knowing they will never be able to be in a same sex relationship again. Dennis explains his journey in a very open, honest and often humorous way! I LOVED this book!!

Talk About A Soul Reaching Read...WOW

I have a long story behind my search to better understand ALL people, and this book played a big part in helping me continue that understanding. The way Dennis shares his story, truly made me feel EVERY emotion with him and for him. Read it, just read it, you will be a better person for it. This book was so inspiring on so many levels and helpful in my own journey trying to understand other people more fully. One thing I am continually learning is that I am only here on this earth to LOVE and NEVER judge. I am grateful for that perspective and the friendships I have made because of it. Dennis is an amazing example of strength, optimism and resilience. I hope to meet him. You can feel his goodness come through in his book. I want to be like Dennis!

Amazing Testimony!!

The narrator's voice was easy to listen to, and not boring. I re-listened to the Audible version a few times because I enjoyed the chapters about Dennis's baptism and his Testimony of Jesus Christ so much!
Dennis's story is an inspiring read that every Bishop in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints should avail themselves of. For that matter, EVERY member and non-member needs to read this Testimony!
Loved it!!

Refreshing thoughts of a Gay Convert

I found this book so refreshing. And grateful for the experiences he had. And reminded me of how loving members of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are and can be. I loved that it didn’t feel like a hype book. And he wanted this book and his conversion to be kept sacred.
