"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven..." A lot of times we don't understand how and why, but for sure you're a lovely child of God and how brave you've been fighting through this mortal life. Keep yourself strong with the armor of God and in the end you're going to be a winner! Thanks for your Voice of Hope!!

As I dry my tears, I thank you for sharing your story. I am a mom of a daughter with SSA and your story has not only given me comfort but it has given me hope. I stumbled upon this website and now I know it wasn't by accident. It is through people like you that will help the rest of us...gay or straight. Thank you.

3:26 Truth in it's purist form, from the spirit of The Lord to the heart of man. "I am of worth because I am a son of god.." Our worth is not determined by what others think or say. Nor is it up for debate. No our worth is grounded soley upon The eternal truth that WE are children of God. We have Within our beings the embryo of deity, the spark of divinity, And The light of truth. Truly our nature is heavenly thus our Lineage royal. We matter because we matter to Him. The worth Of every soul is great in the eyes of god. Self confidence and our Self esteem directly resemble how well we fervently understand that simple yet bearing truth spencer teaches .... "I am of worth because I am A son of god." #luvuwarrior!

Way to go Spencer...You da man! It is a pleasure for me to know you and to work with you on a daily basis. Never forget who you are and that your Heavenly Father loves you more than you will ever know. Onward and upward and remeber that there is all eternity to become who Father in Heaven would have us become.

"I don't need to be straight to feel loved. I don't need to be straight to be of worth." There is such power in those simple truths. God sees you and all of us as worthy of his love and as potential inheritors of his kingdom. Thanks for telling your story, and I hope that you will find joy as you build your life on this firmer foundation of faith.

I don't know all your challenges, but your story has helped me understand them better. I admire your perseverance. Thank you for sharing!

I've listened to all the voices of hope, and your story really touched me -- you are an amazing person. The simplicity and love from your message are so strong and inspire me to live a better life as I continue to live with SSA. I only wish I had talked to someone before, during or after my Mission about SSA rather than suffer years in silence. Your chosen field will bless many lives.

Just listened to your story, Spencer. Thank you. It was very uplifting and inspiring to me. I am a 55 year old man who is just beginning to come out, and that experience you had the Spirit telling you that your secret would not be a secret much longer rang true for me. God bless you on your journey.

Spencer, listening to this again nearly a year after I began coming to terms with my SSA and it still moves me. "I am of worth because I am a son of God." Absolutely brilliant and beautiful truth. Thank you for having fe courage to share and help others know that we are all loved.

Spencer, you are of worth to God no matter what you do, no matter what you think, no matter what anyone else tells you. There is NOTHING you could do that would separate you from the love of Christ - I hope you can hold that truth deeply as others tell you differently.
