Author: Contributor: Jonathan

Born and raised in Idaho Falls, ID, Jonathan currently lives in Glendale, AZ with his wife and 5 children. He has been actively involved in the intersection of faith and sexual orientation since his younger brother, Jamison, told him he was gay in 2004. It wasn't until 2013, however, that Jamison came out on publicly, allowing Jonathan and the rest of his family to "come out" in supporting the cause of understanding of LGB matters within their family, church, and community. He is married to Rachel, who understands and feels the heart of this issue as much as anyone he knows. He is currently serving as high councilor in his stake and previously served as bishop until 2011. He works as a physician in an urban community health clinic in Phoenix, with clinical interests in diverse patient communities, mental health, and LGBT health.
