New Video: Jenn Curtis


Jennifer was raised as a member of the Church in Southern California. Though several childhood experiences created a shadow over her life, she kept turning back to Jesus Christ for help. While getting married young and raising two children has been a journey in and of itself, telling her husband after 15 years of marriage she experienced same-sex attraction was a completely different journey. Through it all, Jennifer has learned more about the purposes of the Savior and the purposes of this life. She has also come to believe that every trial, affliction, and heartache is a blessing from a loving Heavenly Father.

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.

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.
