This Boy and His Mother – Healing from Trauma as a Gay Latter-day Saint chronicles Preston Jenkins’s journey back to faith and activity in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Preston’s story was briefly mentioned in Elder Holland’s general conference talk titled, ”Behold Thy Mother.”
Speaking with authenticity, Preston offers gospel insights gleaned from his experiences involving same-sex attraction, sexual and emotional abuse, an early return from an LDS mission, mental illness, and the eventual completion of a mission. Hope, faith, and never-failing charity are strikingly displayed. So, too, is the sufficient grace of Jesus Christ to holistically heal all wounds.
This boy ”knows he owes much to many, but he knows he owes the most to two messianic figures in his life, two who bore him and carried him, labored with him and delivered him–his Savior, Jesus Christ, and his determined, redemptive, absolutely saintly mother.”
