Ministry to one who struggles with homosexuality

CONFESSION of the need to know how to minister to one who struggles with homosexuality

My granddaughter is a 19 year old believer and just told her mother and me
that she is homosexual. The girl that she is involved with has told me that she
and her family do not believe in God and have never gone to church.
We have told my granddaughter that we will always love her no matter what, however her girlfriend is very controlling and finds ways to keep her away from us as
much as possible. I have read your writing on "How to minister to Someone who
struggles with same sex attraction", but can you give me any other advice?
Thank you and God bless you in your ministry.

We would suggest you read the book “God’s Grace and the Homosexual Next Door” by Alan Chambers. Another great source of information and encouragement can be found at

GOD'S WORD on preparing our hearts for ministry to others

 And Jesus looking upon them saith,
With men [it is] impossible, but not with God:
for with God all things are possible.
Matthew 10:27 KJV

Be gracious to me, O God, for man has trampled upon me;
Fighting all day long he oppresses me.
My foes have trampled upon me all day long,
For they are many who fight proudly against me.
When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You.
Psalm 56:1-3 NASB

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, {he is} a new creature;
the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
Now all {these} things are from God, who reconciled us to
Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation,
namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
2 Corinthians 5:17-19 NASB

Dennis, peace of Lord!
I´m brasilian, so If I write wrong words, sorry.
I meet you by Beth Moore in "A oração da vitória" and I found your site.
I have a question: How can I know If I do the best decision?How can I know If God is saying to do or not to do something?
God bless very much your ministry.
I´m waiting your answer.
