As a joke one Sunday, she went to church with a friend. When the pastor saw her, he asked her to come forward and hugged her. She felt overwhelmed, as she had never received a hug from a man before. He looked at her and said, “You are a beautiful little girl.” The pastor told her that she was loved and said everything he would have told his own daughter: that she was beautiful, special, anointed, and favored.

At that moment, Tyeesha felt loved and secure. She thought it was just a regular hug from a man, but it was the love of Jesus that had transferred from him to her. She knew she had encountered God’s love.

She later tried to return to her gay lifestyle but found herself feeling angry and frustrated. After having visions of doom and despair, she responded to God’s prompting to follow him.

She later tried to return to her gay lifestyle but found herself feeling angry and frustrated. After having visions of doom and despair, she responded to God’s prompting to follow him. The Lord told her that if she didn’t leave the lifestyle, she was going to kill herself. She ended the relationship with her fiancé and secluded herself.

Tyeesha spent the next six months reading the Bible. As she read and applied the Word to her life, it renewed her mind and changed the way she saw herself, the world, and her father. The pastor and his wife became her spiritual parents and helped Tyeesha see herself as a beautiful woman.

She said that the wounds from her past that brought confusion and pain were healed as she gave her life fully to Christ. She has had no sexual attraction, desire, or temptation for women because God healed her.

Now, she is an author and public speaker, sharing her story with audiences across the US and loves to tell others about her new identity and God’s transforming power.
