"Jessica, how do I get rid of all these same-sex attraction issues?"

This is the No. 1 question I receive around the world from LGBTQ individuals who desire to be obedient to the voice of God in their lives.

The answer: "Total and complete surrender."

We former members of the LGBTQ community have learned what it truly means to surrender. Surrendering is not a one-time thing but a way of living.

Parents constantly guide their children in what to do, how to think, what to change and how to relax. Parents also constantly guide children by doing the one thing most disliked: They discipline. No child is thrilled by their parents' constant guidance. But as children grow older, they see how this parental support has shaped who they've become.

There are various types of parents, and we see the results of these parenting styles. Some make us upset and cringe, while others cause us to smile and take note.

Would you rather surrender to a parent who lets you do whatever you want? Or would you prefer to surrender to a parent who may seem a bit overbearing but grooms you up to be a fruitful and productive member of society?
