Had a great time chatting with Susie Larson on Faith Radio on Tuesday about my story and how pornography doesn’t just contribute to the human trafficking trade, but it is a part of it. Thanks for tackling this tough topic Susie and for the well written article below! You’re awesome!
A great thanks to Dr. Mark Laaser and Randy Evert for inviting me onto their podcast this week! It was a great time talking a little about my story, the different groups we are doing at Grace and my work with Pure Desire. We also touched on the Pure Desire University coming up at Grace Church in Eden Prairie on November 10th and 11th. (registration is now open at http://www.grace.church/pdu)
You can listen to the episode of “Men of valor” that I was on here: Men of Valor Podcast with Paul Zunker.
When I was busted in my addiction in 2011 and all my activities were exposed, I immediately went into recovery mode by trying to fix everything in my life that I knew was broken such as my relationship with my wife and kids, my finances and most importantly my relationship with God. I knew I needed to get my relationship with Christ back on track as soon as possible. Continue reading Intimacy is the problem, and the solution
Maybe some of you have seen the Time Magazine article titled “Study: Porn May Not Be Such a Bad Influence on Sexual Behavior” The fact that this article is found in the “sex” section of Time On-Line shouldn’t surprise anybody. Satan would love our society to believe that pornography and sexual sins aren’t really all that bad. In fact, he would say they are quite normal and actually help us develop.

I know the title of this post seems a little vague, but as I am doing my devotions tonight in 2 Peter, I am struck by what I am reading and how it relates to the issue of purity in our lives. If I only would have been practicing the things Peter tells us in these passages to be practicing, I would not have had the struggles that I did. Continue reading Steps to purity
This is an absolutely amazing video from a group that I am hoping to learn more about called “Unearthed”. They are on a mission to stop sex trafficking by getting to the root of the cause- introducing Jesus Christ to men around the world. This video strikes a chord with me. It is a mini-documentary about a man named “Jacob” who was working in the human sex-trafficking trade in South Africa. But after a while, God got a hold of Jacobs life, radically turned it around and now this victimizer is now a rescuer. I too was once a victimizer, but God radically got a hold of my life and by his Grace I hope to be able to help guys break free from what God has freed me from.
Here is the video. I pray it impacts you the same way it has impacted me.
