Description

As Christian parents, we long to equip our kids as they venture out into a culture where LGBT identities are affirmed and celebrated. We want them to know what God says and to love what God says. But it’s hard to know where to start. That's where this book can help.

Author Rachel Gilson helps you to teach your children proactively and positively about God’s beautiful design for human sexuality, gender and relationships. This book will help you to provide your children with a Christian framework for sexual ethics, rather than letting the culture lay the foundations of their worldview in this area. 

Rachel writes with understanding and clarity to help fellow parents engage with the wider LGBT narrative with faith rather than fear. Since she herself experiences same-sex attraction but has chosen to follow the Bible's teaching, she has put much thought into this topic. She reassures us that Jesus gives us everything we need to be faithful disciples in a fallen world, and that God works out his perfect purposes despite human sin. She also shares her wisdom on how to respond with grace and truth to people with different beliefs in this area. 

This book is ideal for parents of pre-school and primary-school children.

If you’re like most Christian parents, you have been considering how to best address this generation’s LGBTQ+ questions with your children. This topic intimidates and scares so many of us, but Rachel Gilson’s new book is here to endow us with confidence so we can approach even the toughest questions with truth and grace rooted in Jesus and his word. Rachel’s new book is practical, convicting, and exactly what we need right now. This should be required reading for any and every Christian parent.

Author, Confronting Christianity

Christian parents are in desperate need of Jesus-centered guidance as they talk to their kids about LGBT questions. This short book is just what we have all been waiting for: a master class in truth and love, equipping us to raise this generation with a cross-shaped understanding of discipleship and pointing them to Jesus’ unending love as we explain the Bible’s boundaries around sex and the goodness of how God has made our bodies.

I hope that every Christian parent, teacher, pastor, counselor, or anyone else who ministers to children will take the time to read this short primer on preparing children to withstand, as disciples, the cultural affirmation of LGBT+ narratives, as well as what may be their own confusion. Rachel Gilson is both rock solid in affirming all God’s commandments and will for male and female identities, while at the same time, urging graciousness and kindness to those who have adopted a broken understanding of sexuality. For that matter, I would hope kind and gentle Christians would be moved to pass this small volume along to those who hold a different view from the Bible, in the hopes that they would learn that to disagree is not to hate and that the gospel of Jesus is our resource for all kinds of brokenness.
