With honesty and compassion, Johnson tells her family's story of what happened when one of her sons joined the gay lifestyle and cut off contact with his family. Offering hope to families facing similar circumstances, Johnson shares how God got her through.
Where Does a Mother Go to Resign? is the heartrending story of how Barbara Johnson faced the devastating news that her son had embraced the gay lifestyle, disappearing from the family for an extended period. Compounding her pain, her son's revelation that he was homosexual followed the deaths of two older sons and her husband's life-threatening accident. At that time, there were no books, no ministries to help Christian families deal with the painful news the Johnsons faced. Yet in the midst of her pain, Barbara set out on a journey of survival and restoration that ultimately brought her and her family back to a life of laughter, joy, and hope. Through the sharing of their story, thousands of other families also have found their way back to hope and joy and laughter. Barbara Johnson says, "We may have to live with mountains that will not move, but we can face the inevitable and realize that we have greater reserves and resources than we thought possible... [God] brought me through the deep water without letting me drown. He held me up when my mind and emotions were torn apart by tragedy. He gave me the gift of joy which made it possible to share with others the good things God was going to do for them also." Book jacket.
