Thank you so much for sharing your experiences. Your voice is what I needed to hear. I really appreciate it. I'm starting to realize that true happiness might not be possible outside of the gospel. Your voice gives me the hope to begin my journey back into the fold.

Your comments touched me very deeply. I have been coming to believe over the past few years that what you describe is possible, and your testimony of the Atonement and the importance of living the gospel and enduring to the end have encouraged me and warmed my soul in a way that I have not previously experienced.

Lovely Sarrah, your tender story touched me deeply and inspired me to seek to follow your example of humility and obedience. Thank you for your courage and determination to follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Somewhere the Lord is surely smiling over you.

Thank you for sharing your story. I have watched both segments of your story and have found hope in what you have shared. Thank you for having the courage to share your story. I'm one who needed to hear it as I've had to come to grips with dealing with my own same gender attractions. Your prayers have been answered because I really have needed to hear what you said and I thank you for it.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your potter's wheel so that you could be a part of the Voices of Hope video. I have gained a lot of strength from hearing your story and your testimony. I have struggled silently for over 50 years trying to deal with my ssa (and trying to accept the fact that being gay is just a part of me, which I still am trying to come to grips with) until my visiting teacher told me about in Oct of 2012. My lonely world opened up after that and led me to join the women's group and also led me to the Voices of Hope website. You prayed that your message would touch somebody else and it definitely has touched me. I especially liked when you said to sacrifice the physical for the spiritual and that you accept all of I thank you for leaving your potter's wheel. I've listened to your story more than once because I've needed to hear it more than once and it's given me strength every time I have listened to it.

Thank you for your beautiful voice. You are living proof that with a sincere desire to follow Christ, anyone in any situation, regardless of their struggles, can endure faithfully to the end. From the bottom of my heart I wanted to say thank you Sarrah, and although I may not know you I love you.

I am grateful for your honesty. Quite frankly, I am grateful for this site. Just discovered it. I don't have this struggle but it helps me to understand a little better. I am very humbled by the testimonies shared. I am humbled by the strength and commitment. We are sent here to "become like him'. Our paths are all different, and the trials we face are different. May we all show more love and understanding as we each find our way back to Him. Thank you for teaching me and reminding me of what that is all about.

Thank you for sharing your story Sarah. I do have the same struggles you have with same sex attraction but like you I believe in the gospel and know God has a plan for me. I am striving to live my covenants and to be a good wife and Mother and I like how you said that those feelings may not leave but that we can be happy and have peace and continue in faith and to listen to the spirit and not the physical. Thank you so much.
