December and January are typically our busiest months, and this year is no exception. I don’t have a definitive answer as to why the Christmas season brings out more people looking for help, other than a guess that the pain of having to fake it for “the most wonderful time of the year,” rubs so much salt in the wounds of the hurting that they’re compelled to get help. Or maybe the shame for those struggling with sexual sin intensifies to a point that staying in bondage becomes overwhelmingly unbearable.
Then in January there’s the letdown that hits after the holidays are over, which can set off more waves of dealing with stress and depression with porn or some other false coping mechanism.
And, there is always the chance that the wife discovers her husband’s habit, blowing up their marriage in the process.
If this is you and you’re ready for help:

Men’s 8 Week Course
Our nationwide 8 week course is for men who struggle with porn or sexual sin. Each member is paired up with another man for the purpose of accountability, prayer, and support. 4-5 assignments are given every week.
See https://www.blazinggrace.org/mens-support-group-for-sex-addiction/ for more information.
For hurting wives and girlfriends, it’s critical that you receive support, encouragement, and prayer from other women who are walking the same path you’re on, or have been there and healed. We offer you multiple options for support, with group facilitators that have been in your shoes.
For information on our wives groups, please see https://www.blazinggrace.org/wives-support-group-porn-adultery/
I’ve worked with men, women, and couples at every level of the church, including senior pastors, music ministers, those with a nationwide platform, counselors, and more. We can schedule a counseling call over the phone, or meet here at our office in Colorado Springs. I also offer 2 day couples intensives for husbands and wives who want to set aside two days to make significant progress in their marriage.
I love working with people who are hurting in this area and watching the Lord provide hope and healing.
See counseling or couples 2 day intensive for more information.
Want Some Blazing Grace in Your Church?
If you’re interested in having me speak at your church or event on the topic of recovery and healing from porn and adultery, please reply to this email. One of the biggest needs in the church is for clear answers on porn and sexual sin to be provided on a Sunday morning from the pulpit, which I can offer, if your church is up for some blazing grace.
We can also do a 1 or 2 day conference at your church or organization.
Everything we’ve offered above; books, groups, counseling, and speaking, are available for individuals and churches and organizations outside the U.S., as well as within. If UPS can reach your door we can ship the books there, no matter what country you’re in. I already have 3 trips planned to Europe for 2018; if you’re willing to put on an event, let me know.
