It's been a desire of mine for a long time now to share my writings with other gay Mormons who might be struggling with some of the same things I have over the years. Until recently I thought the only way to do that was by writing and publishing a book. But the immediacy and accessibility of the internet have made a book seem all but unnecessary now.

I initially thought about creating this site as a venue for my own writings but decided that I wanted to open it up to stories from lots of different people so as to give the site a broader appeal and relevancy. So if you feel inclined to share your experiences I'm more than happy to give you the space to do so.

My experience has been that one cannot be both Mormon and homosexual but how that plays out for others is anybody's guess. I found my serenity by leaving the church behind and creating a new life for myself that is free from the constraints of any religious organization or belief. What works for one doesn't always work for another. What does seem to be helpful for almost everybody though is reading or learning about what others have gone through and discovering that we're not alone in our struggles. And that in a nutshell is what this site is all about.

I hope you enjoy your visit here and wish each of you the courage to keep moving ahead until you find your serenity, however it ends up being expressed.

My best to you,

The Road Not Taken 

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth; 

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same, 

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back. 

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
