I got to have an honest conversation with Becket Cook. Becket is a speaker and author who travels around to share his story of redemption and tackle the topic of homosexuality. I’ve gotten to know Becket over the years and I knew that I had to have him share his experience with you as well.

Becket is open about his journey through being same-sex attracted and his encounter with God that set him on a new path. And I know there may be some of you who have family members and friends… or maybe it’s you who is trying to figure out what the truth is around identity and sexuality and where God stands on it. I think you’re gonna be blessed by Becket’s perspective, so listen to our conversation and feel free to share it with someone you know.
