Jim grew up in a Christian home. His father worked for the sheriff’s office and his mother was a librarian. Even though he was loved, Jim realized he was different and struggled to fit in. He wasn’t the normal boy who liked sports and girls. Instead, he was creative and noticed things that most boys didn’t, like art and design.

In the 7th grade, he realized that he was attracted to boys instead of girls. Because he and his father didn’t have much in common, they never truly bonded. “My dad never hurt or abused me in any way. He was a good man, a good cop, and someone fair.

When his dad asked how long he had been dealing with these feelings, Jim explained that he struggled for years, alone. Upon hearing this, his father, who never cried, sobbed uncontrollably. Not knowing how to respond, the family sat in awkward silence and wouldn’t speak of the subject again for years.
