Hi I'm Maxwell Garff Hubbard

My parents are divorced. My mom is Lesbian. I am a child of God

About Me

My parents divorced when I was 3. My mom is Lesbian. I am a Mormon. I am an only child. My parents went to court twice, and Mom received custody both times. I grew up with my mom Bloomington Indiana. My mom and my grandpa were my best friends. Family is so very important to me and I am very tightly knit with them all. Growing up my mom had a girlfriend. My parents were married and sealed in the temple. My mom grew up in the church but is now inactive. Growing up, I attended church a few times a year with my grandparents and when I would fly to Utah to visit my dad. After the divorce my dad did all that he could to spend time with his son, but that was difficult for him because my mom's girlfriend didn't like him and made it hard for me to have a good relationship with both my mom and dad. My moms girlfriend was verbally abusive. My dad got remarried when I was 5, I have the most amazing step family. Despite everything, I love my mom more than anything. She is the most amazing woman I know. Despite her choices, which she will have to figure out in her own time (this life or the next) I do not judge her, and I love her unconditionally as Christ would. I try to be the best son and example to her. I pray for her every day. I moved with my dad when I was 16 so I could attend seminary and serve a mission. My mom is still my best friend, but now I also have an amazing bond with my dad and step family. The gospel is the joy and purpose of my life. This is my story.

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel is the true joy in my life.
