Resolving Homosexual Problems: A Guide for LDS Men
by Jason Park
Help for Those who Struggle with Unwanted Same-sex Attraction
This book is written to Latter-day Saint (Mormon) men who want to resolve their homosexual feelings and follow Christ. If you are confused by the notion that same-sex attractions are 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 same-sex attraction 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 sexual 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 sexual 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.
