    • Good question.

      I reworded a lot of the original chapters and switched around how I wanted to lay things out. Included is three core values to base ministry to gay individuals around – the three values we hold to at Six:11 Ministries. There is more added contact specifically geared to parents, siblings, and friends. And there is a section on moving forward with what has been learned / talked about.

      There is a lot of feedback worked in from parents and youth workers. While the same conclusions can be gathered, I tried to make the book more conversational, practical, and challenging.

      Without being too biased, I would highly recommend this book. I’m pretty proud of the work 🙂
