The world today claims that your identity is entirely defined by you. As parents raising children in this world, how do we teach children the gospel and explain how it impacts gender identity? This book of letters written to the author’s children follows the overarching story line of the Bible, making it clear that transgenderism is a symptom of a far deeper problem that only Jesus can heal. Written with biblical clarity, sensitivity, and an awareness that people affected by these issues are people who need Jesus, just like everyone else, this book will help parents who are looking for guidance on how to explain gender issues to their children.
David Martin and his wife Honor live in Dublin with their four children. He is director of Irish Church Missions (ICM), an Anglican Church planting mission agency, and along with ICM church families is exploring new church plants in the greater Dublin area.
David Martin has written a book, comprised of letters to his four little children, that takes an emotionally fraught and politically explosive subject and transforms it into a lesson filled with love and hope […] While I take issue with David’s conclusion, I do not with his process. The writing is exquisite, the sentiments are beautiful and I believe it is a wonderful guide for ALL parents in how to speak to little ones clearly, simply and with love, regardless of religious or non–religious belief.

… simple but never simplistic, honest but never harsh, biblical but never complicated. This book will certainly help parents to speak well with their children. But it also teaches all of us how to consider and then relate wisely and compassionately toward those who struggle with their gender.
