My Journey and some overarching truths about porn, freedom, and those who are struggling
I first saw pornography (National Geographic/ Surfer Magazines) at age 7 – and spent 20 years of my life with intense sexual addiction and identity issues. I lived a double life as an outspoken Christian and a secret sex addict (listen to my journey here) until my 3rd year of marriage. After 20 years of captivity, at age 27, in 2008 I reluctantly and unwillingly enrolled in Pure Life Ministries Overcomers-At-Home program, along with my wife. Afraid I would lose my deposit on the program if I didn’t keep up with the daily Bible readings and workbook assignments, I thought I could fake-it-to-make-it for the first weeks and months.
However, by the power of God’s Word I realized the truth of God’s Word that I was indeed a new creation, old things having passed away and all things become new! There was an unmistakable change in my heart and mind.
It was shown to me like my head was forced in a pool of water (The Word of God) until I drowned (dead to self) and then had no choice but to drink in the Water of Life that renewed my mind and flushed my old self, desires and flesh away.
My wife and I continued our journey of building trust together in the Lord over the next seven years until we felt God calling us to begin Broken Free in 2015 with a desire to see other men, women and marriages broken free through Christ!
You were not destined to live as a struggler or settle for mere victory. Complete freedom is possible!

Overcomers At Home Program (12 Weeks with Bible Study, Weekly Calls with IABC Certified Biblical Counselor, $800 per person, Intense Bible Workbooks, reading, and accountability) Broken Free helps support with scholarships. Solo or as couple.
Online Device Accountability $16/mo
10 Weeks. $35. Small group. My opinion – for someone who has never talked about their issues with others… but not for discipleship or Biblical counseling. It’s very psychology-man-knowledge infused. Entertainment driven. Find a local group here.
9 Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
