Porn is the Fruit, Hurt is the Root

For years, we’ve been sharing the importance of understanding the “why’s” behind addiction. Until we do that, we can never be truly free from our struggles. In this bonus segment, Frank shares a recent post from X3church and the importance of understanding what’s underneath compulsive porn use.

How Sex Addiction Can Destroy Your Marriage

This week on the podcast, we’re re-releasing what is potentially the all-time most popular podcast since the start of our ministry, Purity For Life. Sex addiction is devastating in a person’s life. And it has many consequences that can potentially spill over and affect the people closest to him or her. Our marriage almost ended before it even got started because of my addiction to pornography. But as you’ll hear in this episode, not only did our marriage go through great pain, ultimately it went through great healing because I (Frank) stopped hiding and sought help. Tracey & I pray, out of all of our podcasts to date, that this one will bless you and help you to find the same healing we did in our marriage.

024: Avoiding Unhealthy Escape During Times of Crisis

What a crazy time we find ourselves in as the world battles the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We certainly need to be praying for healing for the sick and protection for those who are healthy. But this week on the podcast we want to focus on the temptation to try and escape the pressure, the stress, and the fear that comes along with this virus. It’s very easy for many in recovery to potentially slip back into old patterns of behavior with all the extra time home we have now. Screen time has increased and potentially isolation as well. So how can we avoid unhealthy escapes back into pornography? By allowing God’s Word to fill us and remind us that He is our safety and protection during this storm. We pray this podcast blesses your recovery journey.

Does Porn Impact the Brain?

It’s amazing as much research that has been done on the detrimental effects pornography has upon the brain and yet I still hear this question being asked. The short answer is YES. But what actually happens within the brain when a person looks at pornography? Covenant Eyes has taken a really great look at the actual chemicals that are released when a person exposes themselves to something to graphic as pornography. We hope that it helps inform you to see how dangerous this kind of material really is.
