Justin DeLong

Justin is a student at Brigham Young University majoring in commercial music. He has a passion for music of all kinds (especially contemporary a cappella) and enjoys singing, playing the piano, and spending time with those he loves. Same-sex attraction is the vehicle by which Justin was brought to God. Since returning home from serving for two years in the Massachusetts Boston Mission, the main theme of his life has been learning to rely on the Lord in all he does. By taking things one day at a time, Justin has ultimately come to develop a personal relationship with the Savior and trust in Heavenly Fatherís plan for him.

Justin, I was so inspired by your interview. I have a brother who is gay and has never come out to our family. He is not LDS - but I feel whether inside/outside our faith, dealing with SSA is a struggle. When you spoke, I realized everyone has their own challenges in life to deal with. None of us are immune to struggling with things we should not indulge. There are temptations everywhere. You and so many others who have shared their story are brave. How many people could muster the courage to share their most personal innermost thoughts, feelings, failings, doubts? Everyone who is on a spiritual journey will struggle with many of the same issues you shared. Do I have a testimony? Do I believe in the Book of Mormon? Do I believe in the Restored Gospel? Should I serve a mission? I have sinned - am I worthy? I have renewed sense of strength to continue on my journey of faith. You are not alone. We are here on earth to support one another on our journeys! Ble

This is amazing Justin. You are so strong and your testimony is so beautiful! I cannot begin to imagine the things in which you have had to go through but I know that as you said Heavenly Father has a beautiful and special mission for you on this earth. You give me so much hope.

Thanks so much. I have a daughter about your age struggling with same sex attraction that I know is going through conflict and that the adversary tries to tell her the Church can't be true if you can't be you, but yet I know she knows deep down her Heavenly Father loves her. I felt unsure except prayer with this, but felt the Spirit in your story and understanding and hopeful inspiration to know I can be guided and she can come to feel peace in her life again. Thanks
