Despite your shock, you still want to respond well. What should you say? What questions should you ask? How do you move forward in your relationship with your son or daughter?

Tim Geiger walks with you through the ups and downs of dealing with your child’s revelation. With the wisdom and compassion of Scripture, he offers helpful advice for navigating the new complexities in your relationship with your child, and he gives you hope for moving forward.
