Freedom Begins Here is confronting the issues no one else wants to talk about.
We've created numerous video resources for individuals, small groups, youth groups,
and counselors to help people find freedom from porn addiction and other sexual sin.

I struggled for about 2 years with porn and masturbation, more and more frequently and worse and worse content. I told myself if I read my Bible more, God would give me the power not to give in. It worked for a while. But then it didn't work. I stopped feeling guilty anymore. That was worse because I wondered why I didn't even feel guilt. But then God kept showing me passages about obedience to receive his inheritance for me. At this time in life, I'm getting ready to leave school, and go into everything that God has for my life. In the end, I had a revelation of freedom I guess. Completely free. God is good.
I used to personally struggle heavily with pornography and all the sin that surrounds that. During that time a friend of mine gave me his copy of your book. Your book was a huge tool in my freedom with Christ from pornography. I have been free from looking at porn for well over three years now and I owe all the gratitude to God and how he used your book to set me free from it all. That being said, I am a huge advocate of this book. I have bought it for a friend in the past already. I am currently leading a small group of about five people.
Friend, we serve a God who forgives, heals, restores, redeems, and sets the captives free! Below is a beautiful prayer I received from the heart of a man who understands the consequences of sexual addiction. Whether you are battling an addiction yourself or you are a wife who's heart has been broken because of your husband's addiction, this is for you. May this prayer minister to you and bring hope to you no matter where you are at on your journey!
Being the wife of a husband who has struggled with an addiction to porn is a difficult cross to bear. Isolation and loneliness can become the norm in order to hide the shame this brings to the heart of a woman. I understand. However, as I have found in my own life, in order to become healthy, you MUST at some point, reach out to someone that can encourage you and help you to make sense of the emotions you battle everyday. Not only do you need a trusted Pastor and/or counselor but a woman who understands....one who can share the road to healing with you. One who knows what it is like to walk through this kind of betrayal.
How do you find such a person?
First and foremost is prayer. Pray that God would send that friend to you. A divine connection in which she can help you and you can help her. A woman who will encourage you and be quick to point you to Jesus. Chances are, you may already be friends with a woman who has been broken by her husband's addiction to porn, but too ashamed for others to know.
Beyond finding a sister to share this journey with you I want to encourage you to become involved with a support system, a group of women that you meet with on a regular basis who are passionate about becoming the women God has designed for them to be. Not in spite of their husband's addiction but because of it! No doubt, God will use these women to strengthen you and help you on your journey to wholeness.
