A Sexaholic

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.

Searching My Heart

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.

Pray Anyway

This brought me to tears. People just do not understand the power of prayer until they truly witness it first hand.

I am just blown away by this post and the openness in which Cynthia shares her story with us. What a powerful testimony of what God can do if we simply get out of His way.

God bless you sis!

Tears in a Bottle

You don’t have to believe in God to pray. That’s what our Sexual Recovery Therapist told my husband as he outlined the sex addiction recovery program my husband was about to begin. Having a day bookended by prayer wouldn’t have fazed me too much. As a Christian, I didn’t spend as much time talking to God as I could or should have. Twice a day would have been a stretch. But something I would have readily agreed to as a part of my recovery program.

And yet it wasn’t me seeking healing from a pornography addiction, compulsive masturbation and intimacy anorexia. It was my husband. A man who did not believe in the existence of God.

I was highly doubtful that my non-believing husband would agree to pray. My eyes had been glued to our counsellor’s face, grasping every bit of hope his words were offering us. The hope began…

Porn Warps Everything

Porn... For those who do not think they have a problem...be aware. Your brain is being warped. For those who believe they are not hurting anyone...be aware. Your idea of what hurts is warped. For those who have been struggling daily to be intimate with the one you love...be aware. Your idea of intimacy has… Continue reading Porn Warps Everything

Coffee & Christ Show: From The Playground To Porn Addiction

I guess you can say I’ve been reflecting a lot today. Right after giving my testimony at a men’s conference I was asked to do this interview which led to me doing another interview. I was more nervous doing the interviews than being on stage. Weird, I know…maybe it was because of the camera. But Kerri and I had a blast together and we still chat periodically. What a blessing she has been in my life, especially with all the support and encouragement at the beginning of my ministry. I know I wouldn’t still be doing this without her influence and prayers.

I’ll will let you guys know that the audio works on a laptop but some mobile devices the audio is way to low to hear. If you can hear it let me know your thoughts please. I would love to do another interview with Kerri someday 🙂

Something to Stu Over

One of the hardest and most freeing things I have ever done was to stand on stage at the Wrestling For Your Life Conference and open myself up. I had a lot of fun at the conference and it was spiritually uplifting. It was there that I met Kerri. Little did I know what God was fixing to do. What a blessing she has been in my life. Proof that God does place people into your life for a reason.

Here is the show I did for her program Coffee & Christ not too long after the conference. I was nervous let me tell you. After watching stay on her page for a while and check out some of the others she has. Wonderful people sharing their stories. Check out the section Testimony Road. Several of my friends have shared their story. They would be honored for you…
