To be considerably honest, Becky Mackintosh wasn’t in the plans to be our first guest to interview. However, God doesn’t pay attention to our plans very often.
God didn’t pay attention to the Mackintosh family plan to be heterosexual. That wasn’t in the cards. Not for their entire family.
In 2012, Becky and Scott Mackintosh’s middle son, Sean, came out to his parents as gay.
After struggling to reconcile her love for her son with her love for the Gospel of Jesus Christ as is taught in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Becky decided to write a book sharing her journey with the rest of the world. The result is Love Boldly.
You have to read this book.
Within the pages of her book, you’ll find instructions for loving everyone. You’ll feel empathy. You might even cry. Especially when you get to the part where Becky’s husband and Sean’s father, Scott, shares his story.
