I am 28 years old, married to a wonderful woman, with one amazing daughter. I am currently a substitute teacher, working on becoming fully certified to one day have my own classroom to teach. My wife is also a teacher and has been a tremendous support for me in encouraging me to be the man God has called me to be. She has also been there for me, helping me to overcome sexual addiction. I have a passion for ministry and XXXChurch holds a special place for me. Having struggled with sexual addiction in the past, this ministry has been there for me and I desire to help those who are experiencing this and similar addictions as well.

Accountability software is important. I believe that using the software helps someone struggling with sexual addiction. It deters me from looking up stuff. But how do you use accountability software?

We could get into the technical aspect of how to install it and whatnot but that’s not what this blog is for. I use x3watch myself. It is totally worth the cost of it. It not only reports bad...

I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a young woman.” Job 31:1.

Part of overcoming sexual addiction is to guard our eyes. Consider here what Job said. He made a covenant not to look lustfully at women. He made a pledge. He would not look lustfully at women.

I work at an airport and at times I am outside for long periods of time waiting on customers. Part of this job is...

 

I can remember the first time I was exposed to porn. I was probably around 7 or 8 years old. I really don’t remember. But I had gotten a hold of my grandfather’s magazine. I can still remember in relative detail the picture, somewhere around 20 years later.

I was again exposed in high school, then again in college. The addiction really took root in college. I was a Theology student. I...

Christian teaching about sex is not a set of isolated prohibitions; it is an integral part of what the Bible has to say about living in such a way that our lives communicate the character of God. -Rowan Williams

God created sex. In Genesis 1:28, God told Adam and Eve to “Be fruitful, and multiply…” Therefore, sex is a good thing, when done the right way and in the right context. And when done...

Ever had this feeling before? I know I have. The feeling that God isn’t answering your prayers. I’m certain that many, many of you have felt or do feel this way. As I was thinking about this, God put this thought in my head: often, the problem is us.

You see, we might be praying for help to overcome this addiction. We might be praying for strength to overcome the temptations when they come....

We are mistaken if we think sex equals love. Yes, it is an expression of love within a marriage founded on God. But it is not love. And any kind of sex outside of a marriage founded on God is not an expression of love, but merely a physical act.

But in order for a marriage to be founded on God, both the husband and the wife must be each individually in love with God more than each other. We...

Many think that sobriety only refers to alcohol. However, it refers to abstinence from any addiction. Sobriety from any addiction is a daily choice. Sexual addictions are no different. We have to make a decided and dedicated effort to overcome our addiction(s).

We must do as Jesus did. We cannot parlay with the devil and his temptations because we will not win. Jesus met the devil with a solid...

Ever felt like a failure? I know I have. Especially after falling to porn addiction. Porn has never made me feel successful. It’s quite the opposite. Porn has always made me feel like a failure. I knew it was wrong. But I did it anyway. And the results that ensued were guilt, shame, and knowing I had failed yet again.

Never have I looked at porn and had a joyous feeling of accomplishment....

We tend to make friends in a variety of places, one of those places being our jobs. But what do you do when you find yourself getting too close with a coworker? You might be in a relationship or even married (and/or they might be as well) but you find yourself thinking about them more often. You find yourself having more feelings for them than you should. You find yourself swinging by their...

We live in a culture that is so extremely saturated with sex. Everywhere you look. It doesn’t have to be the actual act. Plenty of triggers are everywhere that can lead men (and women) to think immoral, lustful thoughts

Plus we have all the scandals in the news. Politicians getting caught, denying it, and then admitting to it. Hollywood is no better. The people that everyone loves to watch in...
