Happy Valentine's Day from Jordan!
"Sometimes the world tries to knock it out of you. I believe in following my spirit. I can’t figure out this situation in my life; I plan on knowing you all for the rest of my life. I went beyond the boundaries I have set in my life in 2013. With God, anything is possible. All I need is within me now. No matter what people will say, no man can break God’s intimate plans for my life here on earth. God is drawing the line in the sand because the world has already judged me and know body can judge me any more. Sometimes it feels like judgment day and I am standing on the front line. God is asking me what I did with my life. I say, “God, I spent my life loving and sharing your Spirit, to all I met.”

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.
What Readers Are Saying
"This is a well written book about what one child suffered at the hands of those who should have loved and nurtured him. It makes me wonder how many children suffer in silence. The day we received the book from Amazon, I sat down and read it in two hours. I have purchased more books and have been sharing them with family and friends. I highly recommend this book for anyone to read. May the voices of the children be heard and may each of us reach out with an understanding heart to all of God's children.
J. Adams did an excellent job in writing the story of Jordan Jantz." 
"This book opens the door of a soul who has made the decision to turn from a early life of dark, self-destructive, behavior where his lifestyle is a series of bad choices and makes an astounding turn around in his physical and mental behavior to find meaning and redemption in his life as he seeks the help of the Savior to redefine his direction and purpose in life."

To My Support Team - from Jordan
Special blessings to all my family and friends in the LGBT community, for stepping into my life at a young age and walking with me when everyone else walked out of my life. You will always be my shining star. It was your continued love that helped to bring me out of the closet and into the light of God's love.
My doctors, therapists, landlord, case managers, and clergy, people who are from all walks of life, have helped my life's work to this day. Without all of you I would be dead.

It is hard to have a desire to live when you have no one who believes in you. I can't tell you how much I have prayed for someone to take my hand and not let go. Because I am who I am, so many have questioned the journey I walk and questioned my worth. Everyone else let go of my hand, as well as the hope of me becoming the man God created me to be. So many times I was abandoned by people who called me their family. God sent all of you into my life as shepherds to encourage me with unconditional love. What you did for me, the least of these, you unknowingly did for God.

Someday there will be no more pain and we will all be together. Real love sets us free from judgments. I tank God for putting you all into my life. If not for the experiences I shared with you, this book wouldn't have been written. I know the disabilities I face daily are a struggle, but I also know you will never abandon me. Without your love I would be lost.
Cherish is the word that reminds me of you. Thank you for walking this painful journey with me.

Your brother,
Jordan Jantz

But the Lord saith unto Samuel, Look not on the countenance, or the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.
1 Samuel 16:7


  1. I met Jordan at a fireside in Beaverton where he shared his powerful testimony of the Savior and the path he has unwearingly traveled to follow him. He was very warmly received by all in attendance who were all members of the LDS church.

  2. Thank you for the Valentine's well wishes Jordan!

    Jordan, the more I have learned about your past, the more I am amazed at your present. Your heart, which was so broken as a child, is full always with a desire to share the love that was denied you.

    You live life wholly from the heart. Expanding to include all who have been mistreated or neglected. Those who have come under your especial care are lifted out of the dreariness of their lives. Out of their own dark closets and into the Light.

    If there is one attribute which, to me, can sum you up, it is compassion. We have a scripture in the LDS Book of Mormon where Christ says, "Behold, my bowels are filled with compassion towards you." (3 Nephi 17:6) Your whole being is full of compassion, Jordan. You seek always to compass those you meet with God's compassion.

    And, so, while it is a miracle that one who's heart was broken can love Valentine's as much as you, Jordan, it is also exactly right - because your especial gift is to bring compassion to mend other's broken hearts.

    I am pleased to call you friend, thank you, Jordan.

  3. I'm privileged to call Jordan my friend. He's a living testimony to the power of Christ's redemptive power. Having read Jordan's book when it first came out, I'm amazed at Jordan's accomplishments. He's passed through the worst that life can give someone and still is a loving, caring disciple of Christ. He's an example to us all.

    Much love,
