Author of "What Do We Know of God’s Will For His LGBT Children? An Examination of the LDS Church’s Position on Homosexuality"
The Hearth is delighted to announce our upcoming fireside with Bryce Cook. A few months ago Bryce published an expansive essay on the Church’s position toward LGBT members. Bryce Cook is a founding member of ALL (Arizona LDS LGBT) Friends & Family and a co-director of the annual “ALL Are Alike Unto God” Conference held every April in Mesa, Arizona. He is married to Sara Spencer Cook and together they have six children, two of whom are gay. Since their oldest son came out publicly in 2012, Bryce and Sara have become public allies for LGBT people in and out of the church. Bryce graduated from BYU with a degree in finance and from ASU with an MBA. He is an economic consultant at an international consulting firm.
