Shari Johnson in part two of a two-part is an Evangelical Christian mother whose life turned upside down when her 37 year old daughter, Cholene, called her and told her she was gay in July 2002. Shari has just published a book called, "Above All Things: The Journey of an Evangelical Christian Mother and Her Gay Daughter."
