Purity Tip: Know & Be Known

Opening your life and coming out of isolation is the greatest place to start in recovery from addiction. But it’s more than that because it requires an every day commitment as we choose a healthy lifestyle over and addicted lifestyle. Today’s purity tip presents a challenge: Find a person, a group, a place where you can bring your story into the light of God’s grace, forgiveness, and peace. Remember the power of James 5:16 – “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.”

Powerful Questions for Accountability Conversations


One of the most effective tools for a man or woman in sexual recovery & discipleship in general is maintaining accountability relationships. I’ve had several “accountability partners” through the years and our conversations have ranged quite a bit from spiritual health to emotional health to matters of sexual purity and beyond. Looking back, though, a missing component to these accountability relationships were significant, life-changing questions in our conversations.

I’ve found that many men want accountability in their lives, but they they just don’t know what to talk about when sitting down with the other person. Conversations range from the weather to ESPN’s Sports Center to what they had for dinner last night! But not the real issues of life that they agreed upon meeting for!

Fortunately, over the years, I’ve been able to collect some really powerful questions for your accountability conversations — ones that are practical and that you can actually use right now. Feel free to download these for your own use or to share with others who are needing good resources for accountability.
