When Lives Impact

I've been privileged to have some pretty amazing people come into
my life, and I have forged some wonderful friendships that I will treasure forever. Some of these people have had a major impact on my life, some more profound than others.

But the most profound friendship (apart from my husband) that has impacted my life here on this earth is the one I have been blessed to share with Jordan.
The first time I met Jordan was years ago when he was visiting a family here in Utah. I was introduced to him at the end of our church service. The first thing that struck me was his kind smile - the next was his gorgeous Fabio hair! We only spoke for a moment and he complemented me, telling me how much he loved my acrylic nails. He was so sweet, and I was kind of bummed that I didn't get a chance to visit with him more.

Little did I know that we would soon come to share a wonderful and trust-filled friendship. I was beyond privileged to be able to write his story. It lent a deeper intimacy to our connection that took the friendship up to a completely different level, and now I can't remember what it was like not to know him. 
Jordan is a spiritual giant who has dedicated his whole heart and soul to the Lord. When he turned his life over to God years ago, he never looked back, and now his testimony of Heavenly Father's love is unshakable and leaves me in awe at times.

I believe God has a special place in His heart for His most valiant children, and I am sure Jordan is one of them, because he has given everything for the Lord.
I love Jordan very much, and I will always be grateful to him for coming into my life, and my family's life, and impacting us all for good. His place in my heart is permanent, and I am sure countless others feel the same.

Jordan has been terminally ill these last four months and has been encouraged by friends and family who express their love from all over the world. Feel comfortable using any of the contacts below to communicate to Jordan. He will receive your message.

Thank you all for your continued support and prayers for Jordan.
And a very special thank you to the other two women in his life who take such good care of him.
You know who you are. God bless you!

About 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.

About Embraced
It is hard times that change the course of our lives. In this book I reveal these moments to show my own fallibility. This book is far different from what I originally envisioned. It reflects what I've found not what I predicted. This book does not follow a conventional outline because as you all know, real life is not conventional. Each experience can become embraced in our life.
