If I Have Gay Children: Four (or 5!) Promises From A Christian Pastor/Parent

Well worth the read for all, not just parents!

Susan Cottrell & FreedHearts


We talk with countless Christian parents of LGBTQ children – many just after their child has come out to them. It was usually not something the parent had thought about or prepared for. And their initial reaction can have a life-changing impact on their child.

This is Rob, Susan’s husband, writing today. 🙂

This article, from John Pavlovitz, really resonated with my heart. It takes that step of thinking through and preparing for “What if my child is gay?” And it conveys the promises of a Jesus-following Dad to his own children. What a blessing.

The love of a parent should be unconditional. Without condition. No asterisks. We are called to love as we have been loved by God. This post conveys a core foundation of acceptance and affirmation that is critical for us to share with our children.

Enjoy the article by John – with a little “5th Promise”…
