I know some guys who would have been better off without their fathers around. It is a case by case of "Did you get loved too much or not enough?" I now look back on my own childhood and the people I came from, and I have a better appreciation.
It's kind of scary, people have intimacy to bring a child into the world together. You think people are going to be there, but ultimately you just have yourself. And God.
I think every parent has that moment when they think, "Oh, maybe this was a bad idea. We don't know how to do this." Well, guess what? This isn't something you can put back in the hospital if it doesn't fit. You can't exchange it or sell it or abandon it, which would be the easiest thing to do. But one thing is certain, things don't always go the direction you think they should. There is no other way to say it.
I love being a son. My father has shown me things about myself today that I wouldn't have paid attention to before. Sometimes I think, "Oh, my, that is so me right there!" But I don't know if I am good at it. Am I successful at being a son? That is a question I ask myself. I have many many friends who would have been better off without their fathers around. It is deeply gratifying for a man to see the happiness of his life in his father's eyes!
I think this summer has probably been more than what people have expected, because God is bringing many fathers and sons together and the priesthood is being shared throughout the world. I am blessed to share the Melchizedek Priesthood with all of my brothers and sisters throughout our country, especially for those who have ears to hear and desire a transformation. You will never be alone, and I will never abandon you.
Embrace the summer and grow into the person God created you to be… you are born a child of God, just like me. Find your breakthrough and embrace it this summer. We are more than conquerors.
We love you,
Jordan and Charity
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.
