Spring Bookfest!


Despite the opposition Jordan faces on a daily basis, God has continued to watch over him and has helped him accomplish more than he ever hoped. Long ago, Jordan vowed to turn his whole heart over to the Lord, and because of this, the Lord has comforted him during some of his most challenging ordeals.
Jordan still has many residual challenges, but he never lets that stop him from sharing the love of the Lord with others, mainly through his books. He has such a strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ because of the difference it has made in his own life. He truly is an instrument in the hand of God.
Check out these inspirational titles.

 Embraced
We are all writing the story of our life. We want to know what it's about. What are its themes and which theme is on the rise? People want to know where this book is taking them and where they are headed.

Not to spoil our heat-embracing ending, but I want to ensure that when the ending comes, it won't be shallow; I will have done something life-transforming for others through this book. This book is about that life-transformation we all want for ourselves. I began this book because I hit that point in my life. I became intrigued by people who had unearthed their true calling...or those people who were willing to try.

In this book, Embraced, nothing seems braver to me than facing up to one's own identity and filtering out the chatter that tells us to be something we're not. In this book I hit on an incredible well-spring of honesty. Complete strangers opened their lives and their homes to me, confessing honesty and events that had never been revealed to ordinary people. By that I mean they did not have resources of character traits available to them to give them an uncommon advantage in pursuing a better life.
When people heard this book's title, the most common question I got asked was, "So is your book about your life, or about careers?" and I'd laugh and warn them not to get trapped by semantics. I answered, "It is about people who've dared to be honest with themselves." When reading it, I know you will become embraced.

 Out of the Closet Into the Light

After living a life of abuse, abandonment and homosexuality, Jordan Jantz made the ultimate choice. Leaving his old life behind, Jordan came to know and understand God's love for him, as well as discover his own part in the eternal plan.
But this book isn't just about his Christian conversion and lifestyle change, it is also about all the things he suffered that helped to bring him to this point. It's about everything he was, everything he is, and everything he is on his way to becoming.
Simply put, this is the story of his journey from the painful, cold darkness into the light.

A portion of the proceeds from Out of the Closet Into the Light will be donated to The Christmas Box International to support abused and neglected children.

North Star Conference



CELEBRATE WITH ME MARCH 16-18TH, 2017
AT THE NORTH STAR CONFERENCE IN PROVO, UT.
TRUETOHIM.ORG THE WORTH OF SOULS

How I found congruence and peace in the gospel. True to Him is about the worth of our souls. Visit truetohim.org
To all my brothers and sisters:
Please keep me in your prayers. As I vow to God during this season of my life, I make this vow not of my own merit or achievements, but based on God's abounding grace. I am enlisted in God's way for my life. I release my rights to God and let Jesus determine my life. His call to holiness will be my anthem. The Holy Spirit will be my map and my partner in this life. 
Again, True to Him is about the worth of souls.  My love of true friendship is God's blessing to me.
God's pleasure will be what I aim for in my life. I identify with Jesus in my conduct and in my heart, and to the ability to conform to Christ while I live out my life here on earth. Today I outwardly put on the heart of healing, that my actions may live up to my faith, and that healing may come through doing the right thing to others. Here and sincere will be my love for others. I will carry this oath of consecration, letting go of harmful things that hold me back in my life.

Let it go, let it go, let it go. My life is in Jesus, and His Holy Spirit is my map. Wherever He leads me, I will follow with a pure heart!
I encourage all of my brothers and sisters in the church to always remember that I love you, and it's my blessing to walk with you into this new year of our lives.
You all are not just a friend, but you are my brothers and sisters, and I thank you all for your prayers and for the time we all have been able to share on this earth. Let's all keep shining God's love to each other and grow in the love that He has for you and me.
I feel that this year's North Star Conference will be teaching a lot of thirsty souls, including mine.  Be where you belong; you will be glad you did, trust me!
Keep following the North Star, and it will lead you home to where you belong.
North Star is a faith-affirming resource for Latter-Day Saints addressing sexual orientation and gender identity, who desire to live in harmony with the teaching of Jesus Christ and the doctrines and values of the Church of Jesus of Latter Day Saints.  I found that this doctrine frees me from judgment of my own life and gives all authority over my life to Jesus Christ. I anticipate sharing God's love with my brothers and sisters who have been with me from the start at the North Star Conference in March in Provo, Utah.
Have a peaceful Easter and a happy spring.
Love, Your brother,
Jordan Jantz

Keep following the North Star. It will lead you home; at least that is how it was for me.  The road is long and narrow; don't let anyone through you off course...it's not worth it.

A New Year's Message of Hope from Jordan




I followed the North Star and I found Jesus, and my world changed!  It is like love into eternity!
Everybody living knows New Year’s Eve is soon at hand and the ball is about to drop, but I’m sending you all much love and peace during my favorite evening of the year and I feel you with me in spirit.
As we feast with family and friends this holiday season, many will take time to appreciate what we have with one another, whether it is family or friends, a boyfriend, a girlfriend, even someone we are not with, for we all desire intimacy, especially this time of year. Gratitude makes me less materialistic; my life before was all about the red carpets and the runway-work, day in and day out, lasting only so many decades when I made a career from what I knew I had. Yes, I found freedom in letting go of my life and taking control of my future. For the first time, at the age of 57, I’m able to see that my future has many blessings and my New Year’s Resolutions will gain momentum and power as I give them over to the Savior, Jesus.

I’ve learned that Jesus carried a little broken boy for many years, as well as the young man life had left behind who could only dream that God restored his dreams of belonging. Jesus will carry your dreams for the New Year. Trust me, I’m speaking from experience. No matter how old you are, it is never too late to open your mind to the truth that God will give you more than enough this New Year. For myself, I assist the less fortunate. It allows me to open myself to see the man in the mirror, which can be a profound way to remind yourself of your true wealth. I’ve learned never to try and judge the truth of another person’s life. This is serious people, and a problem in our world today for so many who are in social media. Trust is everything.
       
     If your dreams were not found or realized, what they could become this year is not yet set.  It is still not New Year’s Eve and you have time. Just know the chance to dream is a blessing itself and another year ahead means that hope lives on, for you and for me and all the children in the world.
            We each can tackle issues that are sapping the energy out of us and taking spirit right out of our life. This is my reality: never again will I put anything or any person before Jesus Christ, for He is the only thing and the only one I can honestly trust to see me through a new year. My life is all about finding my peace with Jesus. When you find Him, you will be free. Please find a Happy New Year’s Eve with someone you want to share the rest of your life with. He changed mine.

You know, New Year’s Eve is my favorite holiday because we all get a fresh start to transform our new year. This year is the first year that my life has been totally Not Average, for I’m opening my life and being vulnerable. This year I am missing the children at the Christmas Box House and the friends and spiritual family I have throughout the state of Utah. They understand my reasons for not being with them, for God has me on a journey where I can only walk by faith. Other cities are not like the Pacific Northwest, so thank the Lord for the gift of learning to adjust my life to meet other people’s needs first. No problem, I’m used to that. Seriously, it is a joy to sacrifice for your brother.
        
    Follow the North Star and it will lead you to a new fresh year of happiness with much peace and most importantly, a little Christmas secret: I followed Jesus and I found the North Star. You can, too.
Happy New Year’s Eve, my favorite night of the year and to all the children at the Christmas Box House, may 2017 bring much love and kindness into your life for you deserve nothing but the finest in life.
Jordan jantz
Prepare for  a new year. Just release and let it all go! You’re free to be you, because you are beautiful just the way you are. Enjoy your life this special New Year’s Eve, 2016. All of us broken angels with broken lives send love from Jordan Jantz and his posse of angels, watching over him.
Happy New Year and enjoy life.
