LISTEN LEARN & LOVE
Through the power of storytelling, former YSA bishop Richard Ostler brings to life the experiences of LGBTQ Latter-day Saints, fulfilling President M. Russell Ballard's 2017 challenge to listen to and understand what our LGBT brothers and sisters are feeling and experiencing. Richard is supportive of the Church, its leaders, and doctrine.
This book is for all Latter-day Saints and is an extension of the Listen, Learn & Love podcast. It brings together hundreds of stories in a comprehensive review of the many topics around being LGBTQ and a Latter-day Saint.
By sharing stories, the podcast and book help readers better support LGBTQ members in their unique and often difficult road and better recognize their gifts and contributions in our wards and families.
