Listen, Learn & Love Hosted by Richard Ostler show

Summary: Don and Debra, active members of the church, share their family journey to love and accept their gay son Lincoln and his husband Robert. The Coes give helpful advice for parents, local leaders and LGBTQ people. The Coes talk about how most of their local Mormon community supported/attended the wedding reception for this same-sex couple ... in the same way ‘we’d support a straight couple.’ The Coes also share a tender reconciliation between their son Marshall and Lincoln/Robert on Mother’s day a week before Marshall suddenly passed away and their work to prevent LGBTQ suicides.
