Brother Stephen, I have so much in common although I could be your father. I don't remember any sexual abuse. My Mother had four husbands. I went on my mission at 28. Still one of the greatest experiences of my life. Because of my childhood I promised I would never have children. I regret that. I met my biological father at thirty-something. He did join the church but had little time in his life due to distance and his death to cancer in 1994. Still dealing with my SSA 19 years later. Love your message and encouragement. And agree about male relationships being so important. I think I need to be held. Maybe like John the beloved. Wish I could write so much more.

You shared the feelings of your heart with such tenderness and clarity. The depth of your peace is, to me, tangible. Thank you for sharing. "Sweet is the peace the gospel brings to seeking minds and true. With light refulgent on its wings, it clears the human view."
