I was raised in South Florida in a cattle ranching family. Like other ranching kids, I rode horses, played with my sister and did ranch work. We regularly attended church and were involved in community events. To the outside, all looked “picture perfect”. The reality was that along with the good, I had suffered a series of traumatic events throughout my childhood. These events throughout my formative years caused seeds to be planted that produced the fruit of homosexuality in my life. As time when on, the bondage became stronger, and I fell into deeper sexual bondage and addiction to gay porn. At 26 I hit bottom – I wanted freedom. It was torture… to love God and want to be free, but not to be able to find that freedom. When I “hit bottom”, I cried out to God for help and for His mercy. I could not get free by myself. I was fortunate to be able to put myself in a rehabilitation program in New York, where the Pastor said that he could help me get free. At the beginning I was not fully confident he could help me, and I told God I would give him a year. Within that time God transformed me and gave me a new life and new hope. Today I am happily married to my wife, Christine and have a beautiful family. To learn more about my story and others who have walked into freedom, order the book “Changed”, under the resource section and see www.oncegay.com

The Changed book includes the stories of about 40 people who have left homosexuality and live free today. The original book was in response to California AB2943 bill, which called those finding freedom from homosexuality “a fraud”, and was given to each CA State Senator on June 11, 2018. Today Changed has been revised, adding other stories of hope and victory from homosexuality/SSA. You will find hope and encouragement, and find your faith built in these stories of victory!!!
