Good Times!

Last month's open house for Out of the Closet Into the Light was a huge success and great fun. We were able to not only raise money for The Christmas Box House, but mingle with some great people as well:-)
 After being under the weather for a couple of months, I was so grateful Jordan was well enough to make it out for the open house.

The house was packed. So many people wanted to meet Jordan and talk with him about his incredible story.

"Out of the Closet Into the Light is a no punches pulled true story of a man who overcame years of childhood abuse, neglect and adversity that fortunately few ever experience.  Although not a comfortable read in the beginning it will open the eyes of many to the reality of what some children suffer at the hands of those who should be loving and nurturing to them. Survivors of the “holocaust” have said the one thing that got them through that tragedy was hope – hope that one day life would get better for them. This is a book about hope.  It is a “must read” for those who have been victims of child abuse and also mental health professionals, clergy and anyone who wants to be accepting, understanding and helpful to those who have so suffered. I have known Jordan personally for seven years and witnessed first-hand the joyful transformation he has made by allowing the healing power of the Savior to work in his life." - Ron Boss

"I wish that I could put this book on everyone's doorstep. It took me only an evening to read and I felt that I had walked Jordan's path with him. Reading so much honesty is a pleasure of its own kind. This book inspires compassion. When we walk in each others' shoes (even if we do this through the telepathy of the printed word) we learn to love each other in spite of circumstances.
As a BYU Psych graduate I endorse this book for everyone above age 12. It teaches humans to act humanely." - Amazon reviewer 

As a former Child Abuse detective for the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office in Portland, Oregon I have witnessed over and over the devastating effects of child abuse.  It's long term negative impact on victims is often a dark, hidden blot on individuals and society.  It's often generational in nature as well.  Jordan's courage to tell his story is a must read for anyone who wonders about the lives of those impacted by child abuse.  The scars run so deep they undoubtedly never fully heal and this makes Jordan's story all the more compelling.  The book gives one a perspective on the long term effects of child abuse that one rarely hears.  I applaud Jordan for his honesty and courage to tell his story. - Mel Hedgpeth 

 About the book:
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.
