  1. Thank you so very much for sending a Life Recovery Bible just for the asking! I would be so appreciative if you sent one for my husband to use.

  2. This article ( what to do – your first 30 days of sex recovery) motivated and inspiring me . My 30 days starting now immediately and although li realise out of many years of failures ( to open the door to freedom ) it’s not always going to be easy (This 30 days will have its challenges) but with God’s grace / non stopping God’s pure love for me and this informed guidance of this article, excuse me to be existed and looking forward to victory.
    I pray to everyone who reads this article to be brave and full of courage as God wants as to live our lives.
    May you all have a blessed 30 days and more.

  3. I was touched by this: “Redemption for the addict, John told us, is often reduced to sobriety. While that’s obviously of utmost importance for physical survival, it begs the question: what about those who never get clean? For whom the grip of addiction proves too strong? After all, the world Sullivan describes is a world where that population will only increase. Unfortunately, opiate addiction (as well as overdose and death) has become a very real part of my ministry. This is the part that I see most families struggle with. They try for years to help get their loved one the help they need, to get them to sobriety, and nothing seems to work. Death, in that context, seems (and is, in many ways) a giant failure. I have found that in these situations, and in these funerals, the one-sided grace of God for those who are suffering and helpless against addiction to be the only balm that can soothe, to even a small extent, the effects of this horror. And its the only thing that keeps me grounded when the realization that one back injury, or car accident, or chronic illness could send me or someone I love down the same path. “There but by the grace of God go I. Thank you for this piece, David.

  4. Thank you for standing up for the 12-steps! I was heavily addicted to pornography for over 13 years and I found NO progress until I started working the 12 steps at Celebrate Recovery. Now I’m nearly 8 years clean and still attend CR regularly, sponsoring a couple other guys as often as I can.

    • Hi, Jonathan – I don’t have any better information than would I’d find through Google, so I’m guessing you’ll do the same. Best to you.
