Today's culture is drowning in the lies of the "born that way" ideology that claims desires and feelings cannot change or be overridden. Today our guest will share her story as a former transgender, who believed those same lies and was determined to never return to being female no matter what it cost her. And cost her, it did. Her story sheds light on the common deceptions about the transgender lifestyle, and exposes the frustration and hopelessness of living with a self-created identity that is in opposition to who God created. It bravely leads the way out of the darkness and into the light of freedom that transgenders may desperately be seeking. Also joining us is a former lesbian who ministers to people with same-sex attraction. Come to hear the story of what it means to be authentically transformed and get compassionate answers to your questions on this crucial topic.
