Teach Ministries: To Educate About the Consequences of Homophobia

Mary Lou and Bob WallnerTo those of you who sign our guest book, please keep in mind that it is just that, a GUEST book. When we sign a guest book, it is usually in a person's home, thanking them for their hospitality, or it may be in a church simply giving our name and address. If you have an opposing view to our view about homosexuality, please feel free to contact us directly. We want our web site to be a safe place for those who may be hurting. Thank you so much!

O saviour then in all my need be near to me and let my soul by steadfast faith find a life and heaven in thee could we but climb where moses stood and view the landscape oer. Not jordans streamm nor deaths cold flood should fight us from the shore

You are an inspiration. I am sorry that your enlightenment came at such a high personal cost. Sadly, your story is very reminiscent of so many other families. I too grew up in a very strict & religiously stringent household where everything & everyone that was different was denounced. However my mother never could've predicted just how obstinate her three daughters would grow up to be. And I am very grateful that we have persisted against what others deem to be "normal". Whether that be race, fashion, political or religious views, or sexual orientation. That nest of security allowed my niece to come out to us, unafraid, knowing full well that her family would continue to love & defend her. And our family has become an emotional safe haven for her friends who are not as fortunate as my niece. I congratulate you for your spirit & hope your story reaches & helps to positively impact other families.
