I know I have several non Christian folks here. I would like to say something to you with all the love in my heart. Maybe you turned to pornography as a result of sexual abuse. And if so, I am so sorry that happened to you! I have been there and I understand to an… Continue reading The Way Out For Me Was Through Jesus Christ
One of the easiest ways to show how grateful you are is with two words...thank you. Show your appreciation for that dinner...say thank you! Many times your spouse may not be in the mood for sex and yet they agree to please you...say thank you! Heck, even if you both want it...say thank you as… Continue reading G Is For Grateful
When Rick and Sue first started following me and commenting I should have gone to Rick’s page and read from the beginning. Sadly, I did not. Rick, I apologize brother
Folks, there are many men and women out there who struggle with sex addiction in various forms. And like Rick they are seeking help. They NEED help. Accountability is crucial in overcoming any addiction. Heck, I still need it and I use it!
If you know anyone suffering from porn/sex addiction at least be willing to pray for them. Knowing we have people praying FOR us makes a bigger difference than one might think.
Hello! My name is Rick Love, and I’m a sexaholic (a sex addict). But, I am also a Christian, or I believe myself to be. I have been for about 60 years. In fact, I have been a Bible teacher, a deacon, a youth leader, and even a pastor. I even went to Bible College. But, none of that has stopped lust from being a major driving force in my life, or from me regularly acting out my lust in various ways, to the destruction of my marriage, to the utter ruin of my own spiritual life, and to the leading of others to follow in my footsteps.

https://youtu.be/L9UB9vgr5YM This video by Julie Slattery was shared with me by Bonny over at Oysterbed7 some time back. I was at work. So on my lunch break I started watching not knowing what I was getting myself into. Well, I messaged Bonny back and said I should have waited til I got off work...I can't… Continue reading Sexuality : A Holy Metaphor
Catie gives us a powerful and honest look into the world of women who struggle with pornography and masturbation.
So much in this post spoke to me, but this ““Girls don’t struggle with that stuff.” And that’s a big fat freaking lie. It’s lies like these that prevent confession, cheating women of the freedom they could experience in overcoming this sin. Because when we experience the freedom to confess even the darkest of our darkness, we can fight together. We don’t want to struggle well, we want to QUIT THE STRUGGLE, putting the sin to death and chasing after the redemption story Jesus writes for us daily. And God has designed us to do that TOGETHER” is the truth! And as long as people, especially the church, think women do not struggle then true freedom can not be had.
IT’S NOT JUST A MANS STRUGGLE!
I wonder if I’m a girl you’d think struggles with sex.
Isn’t that what we all wonder? Maybe it’s not sex, pornography, or even masturbation, but you struggle secretly with a dark sin and wonder if others would ever guess. For me though?
It’s sex. Or at least it has been for several years. Sometimes I feel like I’ve finally overcome it, but then I fall short again and my heart sinks and the insecurities come crashing in just to remind me of how disgusting I am.
The first time I watched pornography, I was in 4th grade. I was 9 years old. And it wasn’t even on purpose, it was a total accident that I couldn’t turn away from. I hadn’t even had a period yet, or even knew what the heck it was. And there I was, learning all about what I needed to look like to…

Last year a friend of mine and I were talking about a bunch of different things that go with being married and/or in long term relationships. I said I miss it 😦 You see, some men actually appreciate their singleness. They can come and go when they want. They can spend their money on what… Continue reading Things I Miss About Being With Someone
