Carly Hope is a Christian. Carly is not a social media influencer or a Bible scholar. She is not a ministry leader, a conference speaker, or a professional writer. She has a normal 8-to-5 job that she enjoys and takes advantage of all her weekends. Carly is joyfully single. And sometimes uses bad words for emphasis. She loves running and can often be found on a local patio with her favorite friends, margaritas, and her two big dogs.
Carly wrote GETTING OUT to encourage women who are struggling in the tension between their Christian faith and their same-sex attraction who are seeking sexual and relational restoration in Jesus Christ. Carly wants women to know that they are not alone. And that there is hope.
In her book, Carly tells her story of how she unintentionally got sucked into a lesbian relationship—even as a Christian. She shares about the inner turmoil she faced for eleven years between her love for God and her love for her girlfriend. And how the Lord would not relent in calling her out. Through Carly’s raw honesty, compassionate words, and biblical counsel, Carly shares with us how God powerfully intervened in her life, how she wages war in her ongoing battle for holiness, and how the Lord restored her happiness in Him. In GETTING OUT, Carly boldly proclaims that freedom from the power of lesbianism is possible. And worth it.
