New Video: Brett & Shaundra Cragun


Throughout his youth, Brett struggled quietly with something he felt no one could ever understand. After holding his feelings and frustrations entirely inside himself for years, he finally found a dear friend in whom he could confide, and shared with her his deepest secret: his experience with same-sex attraction. Neither of them imagined it at the time, but, to their surprise, five years later they would marry. Now, over four years into their marriage, they are certain that God is carefully directing them through life. They testify of great truths they have learned from experience, one of these truths being that when you put your faith in God, mountains can be moved. Together, Brett and Shaundra look forward to a future filled with happiness and hope.

New Video: Jimmy Merrell


Jimmy works as a music therapist and enjoys helping people with cancer, emotional disabilities, neurological disabilities, AIDS, and terminal illnesses. He serves as first counselor in a bishopric and has also served as the choir directors and ward mission leader.

Through his experiences with same-sex attraction, Jimmy has learned that the Lord will lighten his burdens by giving him opportunities to serve others. That sounds paradoxical, but it's a practice that has brought Jimmy much joy. Accordingly, Jimmy has served within the North Star organization as a moderator for the men's group, online groups coordinator, treasurer of the executive committee, and director of the online community.

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.
