Overview

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who have homosexual desires are often trapped in a dilemma. While they may have a testimony and even want to live the gospel fully, they frequently struggle with their sexual orientation and feel bewildered and tormented. Loved ones are equally frustrated by their inability to understand or help. Erin Eldridge knows all about that struggle. She was involved in homosexual relationships and other addictions she wasn't even certain she wanted to avoid. They provided comfort and acceptance on which she was dependent. Yet at the same time, Erin was choking spiritually in the web of sin and deceit and secrecy in which she was entangled. This is her account of how she was finally able, through the power of the Savior, to throw off the yoke that had for so long deprived her of peace and happiness. Her experience can bring increased understanding. Those who struggle with same-sex attraction can discover how gospel principles and the power of Jesus Christ can be applied to find freedom from homosexual desires. Family, friends, and church leaders can gain a greater understanding of the problem and what can be done to help. Erin's story is not intended for those who wish to remain in homosexual relationships. As she says, "This book cannot change minds and does not attempt to. This book is for those who believe, somewhere deep within, that homosexual behavior is sin and should be overcome." Born That Way? testifies of the power of Jesus to heal us of our infirmities, regardless of their type. And it describes how embracing the gospel can result in a change of heart and a rebirth-even from a force as powerful as same-sex attraction.
