New Video: Tyler Lefevor

Tylerís life as a graduate student in counseling psychology involves lots of reading and balancing demands from professors with precious free time. Outside of school at the University of Miami, he loves running, deep conversations about life, being in nature, and serving in the church. Through questions and struggles, same sex attraction has helped Tyler deepen his faith and develop a more authentic relationship with God. After denying the reality of same sex attraction for most of his life, Tyler has found that accepting and understanding same sex attraction has helped him recognize the importance of connecting with others and supporting each other on our path back to Heavenly Father. As a lifelong member of the church, his secret wish is to one day be the ward chorister.

Our initial goal is for the website to be a repository of a thousand voices of faithful Latter-day Saints dealing with these issues, sharing their stories and their faith —why they've chosen to embrace the restored gospel and how they've found peace and resolution in that decision.

This video documents the impact of the Voices of Hope project on one young man's journey toward wholeness and peace and takes the viewer behind the scenes of the project's production process to reveal all of the work, effort, time and equipment that makes this project the model of cinematographic excellence that has been a hallmark of this project since its inception. If you are inspired by this video to join us in furthering Voices of Hope's mission through becoming a financial partner in some way, please visit the Support a Voice page and give generously today.
