New Video: 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.



New Video: Jordan & Kylie Lawson

Many years of searching for understanding through his experience with same-gender attraction led Jordan Lawson to peace, joy, and a temple marriage with his wife, Kylie. Having been married for over two years, they are currently expecting a son to be born in December. Jordan has a bachelorís degree in art and Kylie has her bachelorís degree in plant science. They currently live in northern Utah. The Lawsons have learned that it is through relying on the Lord that miracles can happen and that God is every detail of life, including marriage.



New Video: Rod Olson

Rod Olson engaged in a period of self-discovery by pursuing short- and long-term relationships with men. Toward the end of this period he fell into addiction, losing relationships, his career, friends, money, health, hope, and the ability to love in the process. With nowhere to turn, he entered a 12-step recovery program. This program, along with the gospel, saved Rodís life and gave him renewed faith in Jesus Christ. Rod is now active in the Church and rejoices in his testimony of the restored gospel.

Our initial goal is for the website to be a repository of a thousand voices of faithful Latter-day Saints dealing with these issues, sharing their stories and their faith —why they've chosen to embrace the restored gospel and how they've found peace and resolution in that decision.

This video documents the impact of the Voices of Hope project on one young man's journey toward wholeness and peace and takes the viewer behind the scenes of the project's production process to reveal all of the work, effort, time and equipment that makes this project the model of cinematographic excellence that has been a hallmark of this project since its inception.
