By the age of 15, Kylie had her first relationship with a female, thinking that finally, she had found true freedom and happiness, something to let her escape from realities at home. But this was short-lived until, at the age of 16, she found herself in her first lesbian long-term relationship. It was another trap of false hope and deep heartache. During this time Kylie’s physical appearance was changing as well, wearing men’s clothes, having shaved and short hair, she was becoming to look more and more masculine every day. During this 2 year relationship, Kylie’s Parents discovered a church in Malta by the name of ‘River of Love’. Baffled by their radical transformation as they attended this church, she secretly started to question her beliefs as an atheist.
Seeing her parents going from drug abuse and zero religious interest, to suddenly claiming statements that, “Jesus was real” and they had been “saved” and “born again” stroke a deeper sense of curiosity inside Kylie’s conscience. Sadly upon reading verses regarding homosexuality in the Bible, her heart grew even colder and stone-like. She had no desire to have God in her life, so for more years she continued to struggle with relationships, became addicted to drugs, cigarettes, and alcohol. Leading a life of misery, with no hope and purpose.
Her parents still loved her as a lesbian but always told her the truth about God and that the lifestyle she was living would result in dire consequences. Then Kylie started to visit the church and after a while, it was as if her eyes were suddenly opened. She was convicted of her sin and had a new desire for repentance. She realised God was not angry at her, but He was eager to welcome her with open arms and be the Father that was always missing in her life!
