        I am a Director of Religious Ed at my parish. I would use one in my parish and give 1 to our diocesan religious Ed office to use & lend, give 1 to the leader of young adult ministry in our diocese for programming, give 1 to our diocesan youth ministry leaders to use for programming, and the others I would give to local catholic high schools.

      • Jim H. on

        I lead our church’s Celebrate Recovery “men’s issues” small group. Recently, our group has outgrown the chemical issues small group. Most of the men that attend our group battle some form of sexual addiction. I also meet with a different group of married guys who are battling the tragic consequences of porn in their marriages. Needless to say, I would bless these bands of brothers with these materials. God Bless, Jim H.

      • Trudy on

        As a mother, first grade teacher and theology of the body religious education teacher I come in contact with a wide variety of Christians. I would most definitely use the materials with my own family of 6. As well as share with other families. Our world is not a safe haven for our children and as parents and leaders we need to do everything in our power to protect our children.

      • Brian Fraga on

        Pornography is a scourge affecting even many otherwise faithful Catholic men in our parishes. I would share the bundles with our men’s prayer group, as well as our Knights of Columbus council, which is very active in building up our parish life.

      • Brenda Sais on

        I would give them to my priest to hand out in the confessional. So many struggle with this but rarely talk about it. After confession would be a great place to start again.

      • Leah Muon on

        My youth church is currently talking about purity and everything that ties in together with it. There are many students who struggle with pornography, remaining pure. Many are broken, many are left believing they can never be pure again, others just seeking wisdom. The bible is the greatest source of wisdom but winning the 10 bundles for my youth church would give them a greater understanding and enrich there minds. Being teenagers in today’s society a lot of provocative stuff is not something we all seek out but come across, for example school, billboards and more. Eventually we seek them out. My heart is that we start guarding our hearts from anything that attacks our purity, we renew our minds and seek out Gods heart and not that of another man/women. Then I’d like to bless anothe youth church with the bundles and not just keep them to eventually dust. God is calling us to reach out to his sons and daughters walking in the darkness. I would use these bundles for the men in my church but also for the women. Through it all I wanna enrich my mind with porn protection so that down the road when I am to minister to someone. The Holy Spirit would just lead me to those struggling with purity and pornography.

      • Juan Flores on

        I have 4 sons, an all male Confirmation II class, vocations committee with on-going youth vocations events and the list continues… who wouldn’t I give it to? :)

      • Lori on

        I would use one for our family. I have four children 2 teenagers still with us in our home. The other two are young adults living on their own participating in this in some form or another I am sure. One son is enlisted in the army and married. The internet has definitely been the sourse of pollution for my children’s minds!! I am soooo thankful for covenant eyes. I only regret not having it 10 years ago. I would give a copy each to our adult sons, I would give a copy to a few of my teenagers friends parents to share with their families, I would give the remaining bundles to our church to use one as resource and others to struggling families. Our church – Calvary Chapel Santee – taught mens bible study on lust and handed out statistics on internet porn from covenant eyes as well as shared the great tools available from this site!! So I would definitely want to share it with my church body!!! Thank you for offer in this!

      • Tessy on

        I would sent them overseas to Okinawa, Japan to my brother and his fellow US Marines! Oohrah!

      • Tom Lelyo on

        10 bundles? 10 students or 10 parents or 10 friends! Covenant eyes has been something I’ve been looking at for quite some time and would love the chance to actually use it!

      • Margaret Sukovaty on

        This is such a gift and needs to be shared with as many people as possible.
        – I would give 3 bundles to my parish to distribute to those individuals/families who come to them for help and healing
        – I would give 3 others to families I know are struggling with pornography in their marriage
        – I would give 1 to my Husband’s Mens Group to supplement their knowledge in healing those with additions
        – I would give 1 to my Women’s Bible Study group to aid the classes that deal with pornography in the home
        – I would give 1 bundle to the local SAA (sexual addition anonymous) group
        – I would keep the final bundle for my family’s personal use

      • Marsha on

        I used to be one of those people who did not see the harm in porn but I have seen the light…porn is one of the most damaging things in our society right now

      • Shawn Gibson on

        Our church’s people, whether new, old, or somewhere in between could use the education, so it wouldn’t be difficult to use them in our junior youth, youth, young adult, and adult areas of ministry. That’s at least four pieces. I would definitely keep at least one in my family, send a few to some fledgling buddies, and be on the look out for others who might be interested in the material.

      • John Marasigan on

        If I overcome pornography, I can fulfill my ultimate dream. I can get married and have children. Of course I can get married right now if I proposed to the woman I love. But truthfully, I can’t. Because getting married now would be spiritual suicide. There is no way I could allow myself to bring pornography into the life of my wife and children. I know the damage that pornography has done to me. I know what it has done to all my relationships. What I don’t know is how to truly overcome this battle. What would I do if I were given all this material? I think I would use it. I really think so.

      • nathan on

        I have set up a private facebook group called last man standing for men who are seeking to pursue purity in this area. A national group was set up by some people years ago and now has over 2000 members. I have set up two regional groups with 50 and 30 people in. I would use the resources as part of the weekly competitions I run where I give away a resource to one person. The competitions are based around a question which the group are encouraged to all answer individually and one answer is chosen at random and the person given the book which they are encouraged to read and then pass on.

      • Patricia B. on

        I would give one copy to my boyfriend and go through it with him. I would also give it to some very close friends I know who are struggling even while actively trying to stop. The rest I would give to my Youth Minister so to help in one of the talks given at our Confirmation Retreat.

      • Rudy Mahara on

        I would keep one and invest the other nine in my Celebrate Recovery group. Some of us already meet and discuss books.this would be a great addition.

      • Tim Kelly on

        I am the director of youth and young adult ministry at St. Francis of Assisi in Lake Tahoe. I am also the director of basketball for boys from 6th grade to 12th grade (varsity head coach). I would use the bundle to make sure every single young man and young lady in our town was given the information they need to fight this disease. We are a small village town on the north shore of Lake Tahoe but this disease of pornography is running rampant in our town. This bundle would give me the opportunity to fight back against a culture of death. The bundle would give me a teammate to go along with the talks that we are already giving. Our kids would be able to go home with information to read on their own and truly help themselves fight against this evil. Thank you for doing this for all of us! God Bless you all and make it a great day, TK – Tim Kelly

      • Fred on

        I would first read for my own benefit to overcome my own struggles, the better education I can receive the better I can help others. I would put some of the copies in church libraries. I would give copies to those who help people like me with issues with porn, in better educating them with new techniques, so that they can help people like me. not everyone is the Same.

        I have found this Site helpful: http://candeobehaviorchange.com/healthy-sexuality/

      • Pastor Shawn Rutan on

        I would use them to start an accountability group for men struggling with sexual sin in our area.

      • Donna Richardson on

        I would give one set to my husband, one set to my son-in law and the rest to my church. We need something like this in our church so it can be taught to our congregation.

      • Jaime DeMelo on

        I would first study the resources myself so I can incorporate it into my teachings (I give talks in my prayer group), my catechism(I teach catechism to Confirmation Children). I also belong to a Lay Apostolate (first of its kind in the Gulf Region) called Holy Spirit Interactive. I would make these resources available in our Library and encourage parents and young people to use them. I would also develop a mini-workshop along with our Founder based on these resources for parents and teens in our community. When I visit India, I would like to spead the message and show the DVDs to my family and ask them to spread the message in their circle of friends. People in India badly need resources to protect thier children from pornography.

      • Justin Frazier on

        I would use it to help me with my personal struggles, so that I could get myself to a point to help others.

      • Mike on

        The reason that I want to get this offer, is so that I will be able to protect my family, my marriage, and my testimony to remain strong. If I win, I will give one to my accountability partner, to my close friends, and to family members to help each to stay pure, and Godly.

      • Gayle Snyder on

        I am doing all I can to “sound the alarm” to parents, teens, and youth workers. I am a pastor’s wife and youth team leader. So I am very passionate about this subject. I have been on the front row seat of some very sad stories of young teens who got addicted to the internet, just because their well-intentioned parents were not educated on the dangers of internet freedom. I know teens who were lured by pedophiles and sucked into a secret life, never to be quite the same again.
        We are launching a strong purity campaign in our church, and I am often reminding parents on my Facebook page on things to be watchful for. I believe we can make a difference if we can just speak up and speak out. My husband hosts a ministry sight to those outside our local congregation, with hundreds of followers, and he has touched on the subject of pornography, and teaches to men in church retreats about pornography and sexual traps. He would be thrilled to share this information. I can’t wait to use the materials! If only we had these tools years ago!

      • Stephen on

        As a missionary in Uganda, a country in Africa that is one of the fastest developing countries where it is becoming modernized and many latest fashions and fads are being copied into the culture, with the 10 bundles, I would distribute them to small groups I have encountered in the various churches in our neighborhood. I would host a training with youth leaders of those churches to have them experience and go through the bundles in order that they would, eventually, train the youth and give them the books/handouts in their churches to be more Christ-centered, Gospel-driven and Spirit-filled in their lives to stay pure and holy before the God they serve.

      • Karen on

        I would use 1 for myself to further my education on the issue then give it on to a friend. 1 would go to my school’s campus ministry, another few to my LifeTeen group, and pray for guidance on which if my friends to give the remaining to. As a highschool female who has struggled with porn addiction, I know of well over 25 people whose spiritual lives and self esteem have been ravaged by it. I would keep 1 copy in my car until the Holy Spirit told me where to strategically place it in public!

      • Cindy on

        I have quite a few young men in my life, particularly a few very close to me, so I know struggle with purity and have had issues related to pornographic images. I would give these resources to them! I also volunteer at my parish (we don’t have a youth minister), so I would give some out to youth who I work with. I also have brothers who do not understand how damaging porn can be – I would include them in my list of people to give resources to!
        Thank you for all the work you all do! :)

      • David on

        We are about to head to Southern Africa to work with young men and refugees and so would use these resources with mentoring and pointing people to Jesus. I also have 2 sons and am excited to help them take steps in their lives to stay free!

      • Ted Robinson on

        As director of Free Indeed Ministries, I work with a lot of men seeking freedom from pornography and lust. I also train coaches to work with men (and women) struggling to overcome. I have an insatiable appetite for quality research and resources in the area of sex addiction. Your site is a gold mine of such treasures. Anything you want to sow into this ministry will be put to vigorous work setting captives free and training others to do so.

      • dwayne burks on

        I will share the material with clergy and volunteer ambassadors in order to nurture faith community collaboration to increase awareness of the need. This awareness will equip us to host multi-site small groups, trainings, and teaching on how christ in us does far more than merely midify behavior. Christ becomes our life giving us true victory over sin

      • Logan on

        Well I for one would keep one for myself because i do suffer from the burden of the sin of adultery then i would give a few to others whom suffer from this sin, give some to my parish, and study the word so i may know what i am speaking of when i try to help others

      With a bundle I would use one set at home, to encourage my husband with his fight against pornography and to educate my own 4 children about the harmful effects of porn use and learn to protect them from it. I would donate the other sets to my church to give to families who are struggling with this as there are many in our church family. Our pastors are working to help families with this and these would be a welcome addition to their tools.

      Reply
      • Chris Duchardt on

        As Mel’s Husband I would keep one of these bundles for myself and our family (esp. my two boys as they grow up). I would then donate the other bundles to our church to distribute to youth, men and families as they felt lead or as the need arose. I do know of a few families in our church that are struggling with this as well and would probably give them a bundle as a gift.

    6. RJ Chavez on

      We have come to the point in our Confirmation class (I am our parish’s director) to speak to our teens about poignant issues present in their everyday lives, such as innate human dignity and the rampant abuse of that dignity through worldly evils like porn, warped perspectives of human love and sexuality, and what being a true Man (with a capital ‘M’ or Woman (with a capital ‘W’) means from a Christian point of view. This bundle will help us convey the great damage that lust and pride in our world has wrought and to uphold Reconciliation and ordered hearts as the solution.

      I am currently a seminarian, studying to be a Catholic priest. For me, I think it is extremely important that I be aware of this issue and how to help men and women struggling with this issue. I would first use these resources to inform myself, and then I would pass on this information and these materials to individuals struggling with these very issues.

      I am the director of the Pure Initiative, a sexual risk avoidance program. We would use the bundles in our Connected Parents program. This is a program where we meet with parents to equip them to protect the hearts of their children and help them plan a life of purity.

      Oh what I wouldn’t do with these 10 bundles! As young parents, my husband and I would use these tools to inform/prepare ourselves, our household and our community of other young families to the battle of pornography. Also, in working in youth ministry I would better equip our young men and women in their very real fight with this giant. And lastly, with my husband as a planning committee member of our parish Adult Men’s Group, he would be able to share the very real and concrete evidence of this issue and help those who are/ have been/ or are being proactive in their struggle/temptation. What a beautiful gift you are giving people! We pray these bundles are put to the absolute best use! Blessings!

      I’d share this package with every father I know that is close to me. Being currently in a situation where I am on the path to divorce largely because of my struggles with porn, I fully recognize now the destructive power of it. I wouldn’t wish this upon anyone. My children will definitely be taught about the evils of porn and I will share to everyone who will listen!!!

      I’ll give half to the St. John Neumann shrine for the table outside their confessionals, because they see many men fighting addiction to porn. The other half will go to my home parish, where I don’t know of anyone with the problem — because silence doesn’t imply freedom.

      I would use a set for personal use, then I would give a set to my confirmation teacher . And if they were in a Spanish edition I would give it to my groups Angeles De Dios and Lazos DeAmor NY , so that it could be taught to the Latin community. And I know a brazilian group that I would give it to , but that would have to be in portugueses.

      I work for a non-profit organization dedicated to male and female identity formation and chastity formation for teens, young adults, and families. Our work puts us in contact with a lot of people who are struggling with chastity, specifically with addictions to pornography. I’m personally in contact currently with many young men who struggle with addictions to pornography, and it would be great to offer more resources to them to help them to break free of the stuff. I’d love to be able to give them to many of the families that we are in contact with, and specifically with the 17 and 18 year old men I’m currently working with.

      As a sexual addict in recovery, I would definitely use these materials to educate myself more and supplement the therapy and education I receive from my counselor and the support I receive from my accountability partners. I would also share the bundles and my story with others I know are fighting sexual sin to let them know that they are not alone and that recovery is possible.

    16. Fr. Andrew Dickinson on

      As director of a college Newman Center, I work with men and women who struggle for purity. I understand that the future is at stake. Their future vocation and their personal freedom to pursue excellence in marriage, priesthood, or consecrated religious life will flounder if not founded upon chastity. These bundles would be a great asset to our students in their efforts.

      Most of all these gifts would serve as an encouragement. The grip of sin and lust is strong and the porn culture is pervasive. Much help is given just by knowing “I’m not crazy. Other people see this as a problem. Other people have grown in purity. I can do it.”

      I would share these with my church and home school group. I want to help, us as christians and home schoolers, to open our eyes to the very real threat and temptations that are out there. To open our eyes and hearts, to at times, even contributing (by turning a blind eye to what’s on tv, computers, dressing inappropriately, etc) to the temptations and dangers that are facing our children and families more and more everyday. We need to be honest and vulnerable-real with each other. Confessing our struggles and holding one another up.

      We have run a men’s only sexual integrity group and another support group for spouses for about 6 yrs. we now see the need to take a new step by teaching the parents how to be proactive in the lives of their children and how to respond to their children when they encounter sexual imagery and sexual sin. We are in the early phase of planning a reoccurring parent worshops as well as planning a group or resources for students (pre-teen – HS) who would not be age appropriate for our men’s group but who still need hope and healing from their sexual sin and brokenness.
      Therefore we would use the resources to host a parenting class that would be open to our members as well as to our community. Also I have begun building a local network of Pastors, Christian counsellor and Sexual integrity group leaders – I am developing our parenting workshop with this group and pray the workshops will demonstrate unity in the body of Christ and be used by God to bring His message of the Gospel to bear on our fallen sexuality through inter-denominational collaboration.

      With 10 sets I would give the first to my mother. My sister has special needs and is not able to make appropriate decisions about what things should be posted and done online and what shouldn’t. The next two would go to my 2 friends who have similar situations with their daughters. Finally, the rest would be divided between my parish, Lifeteen, and several local Catholic Schools.I am really hoping that this information and programs can help everyone involved. The internet can be a very scary place if not used properly. God Bless!

      ln first place, I’ll admit I would use this material to learn more about this subjects. So I could reach others, within some projects I’m working on…

      I would reach some of the secondary schools in Monterrey with this material.
      And an organization called: Protege tu corazón (Protect your heart)

      I’m often called to give talks, about pornography , and sexuality . (So I could also make some sort of activity a giveaway one)

      I belong to an international organization called Couples For Christ. I also am a parent coordinator for the youth in our group. What I would do with the material is to hand them out to the youth of the group and provide information and education to the parents in the organization. I can set up a talk with a question and answer portion to address concerns the parents or youth have.

      I would be so excited and unbelievably blessed to win these! I am a youth leader at my parish and can see that many of the youth readily do not understand or appreciate the gift of chastity and how impurities really do mess with your mind. I work closely with my youth director and since finding the Pure Love books, I actually keep several copies in my purse to give to people. It’s important to me that people have an opportunity to understand the reason why they should be pure since society teaches us to do the opposite. You can rest assured that these would be used wisely. I think it would be nice if my parish offered a class over the contents of the set for parents and their children. Some could go into a raffle where a family could win a bundle. (Next week is our ministry fair which would be a perfect time.) Having a raffle makes it seem even more like the prize is something valuable and would definitely give a family more incentive to read something that seems like a touchy topic for most. It’s so important that we have resources like these available to people and I’m so happy to know we have authors like this in the world who are willing to tell it how it is!

      Living the faith, is the focus of our family. Our two sons are fast approaching their teen years and I want to prepare ourselves with tools we need to help them through the struggles they will be facing. I also teach a 7th grade religious education class who would benefit from online guidance. Our parish serves our youth with the Edge and Life Teen programs and so many of our conversations with teens surround the internet and social media influences. Our community is a great place for these resources because it will be shared! Available for parents, core teams and religious education volunteers to help us all, raise generations of young people who make good choices and live their faith.

      I would keep one set to view and pass along to immediate family and friends. I would then donate the remaining nine to our Diocese of Raleigh so that the bundles would be available to each parish and school. In our overly sexualized society the church must remain a beacon of truth and understanding. Each parish and school could then hold their own Adult Education night to explain and reinforce the destructive nature of pornography and how we as parents can protect our families.

      Because the requirements to get my BA in early childhood, I am taking a Sex Health Education Class. According to the lectures everything is normal, as humans we all have swxual desires. However, I gave a presentation about Chastity and sexuality, a lot of people disagreed, but I have to stand for my values. The books wil be a great help to continue spreading chasrity among teenagers and their parents, there is a huge need of information, especially in the Hispanic community, and I am currently working wth them. Thank you.

      I am the director of our church high school/college youth ministry that is part of our Catholic Church but wonderfully ecumenical. Our parish covers 4 churches in 4 towns, 2 schools and the smaller communities inbetween each church. These bundles will be a wonderful addition to our program on living out the Theology of the Body. I would prioritize our youth ministry and use the bundle to lesson plan safe internet and protecting the soul against one the greatest modern threats to salvation. In addition the book will complement the study group and we would actually read it together as a discussion group. Finally, the beautiful letter from Bishop Loverde will guide our resolution to turn to St. Joseph and protect our families. Since our youth group will not need all ten bundles, I want to share bundles with our 2 schools, our annual men’s retreat ministry (BWANA), and our coed adult Watch community. This will leave several bundles to be added to the church’s lending library so it is available parish-wide in each church for TPO events, parents groups, study groups, visitors and any member that would like to face the challenge.

      This is totally awesome. I would give these bundles to my neighbors, my brothers, my sister, the youth minister at our parish, one to the director of RE and one to our Pastor. ( even though he is celebate, it may help him explain to kids the damage it does to you, (besides, its a sin, don’t do it.)

      And then, I would have to decide who I can borrow it from, lol. Peace

I would share 3 bundles with 3 pastor friends to share with their congregations and I would make the other 4 bundles available through CHAP at our convention which draws 7000 homeschooling families from all over PA.

      As the youth minister of a Catholic church, i am frequently exposed to the lives and problems that the young teens of our society are facing. Within our youth group program,we do what we can to educate our teens; however, most of them lack the confidence to come forward about their struggles with sexuality, chastity, and pornography. Often times, concerned friends are the ones who come forward, if they have within themselves the courage and trust to discuss such sensitive topics with me. If i were selected to win the 10 bundles, i would keep 1 of the bundles for myself as an educational tool to build into my youth group nights as a regular topic that we discuss, similarly to other topics like chastity, abortion, etc. However, the remaining bundles i would give to those parents whose teens i see struggling the most. Often times, those that jump from relationship to relationship aren’t focusing well enough on themselves due to peer pressure to “be with somebody.” Relatedly, those who are in frequent relationships feel pressured to act and perform and resort to pornography as an educational too l(albeit, not an accurate or healthy one to use). I would use the program as a “pay it forward” kind of program, where they would watch it, discuss it in their home with their kids, and then pass it on to another member of the community whose teens are struggling with the same, or who they personally know would benefit from the program Sometimes, having the words to discuss these issues with kids or young teens can be enough to deter one from becoming addicted. The goal behind this would be to empower parents and teens to discuss the effects that pornography has, and to discuss how big of an issue watching pornography can be. My hope would be that the teens would eventually be able to empower one another to keep each other accountable and on the right path towards chastity and respect for each other and their bodies.

        We have an a good youth program at our local church, and our pastor has been asking for feedback to bring more solid Catholic teaching into our parish. I would take him up on his offer. I would plop down all 10 packages in front of him and the youth director and say, “Let’s start a class.” If they didn’t think they were ready for it, I would take it to another local parish that has an amazing youth program, run by Dominican priests and I know they would gobble it up. Several local parish families send their children to their youth program for they fear not the power of orthodoxy.

      I serve on you ministry staff at Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM) in Concord, NH. If IHM were to receive this bundle, I would hope that we would be able to present a wonderful presentation to our community. This hidden sin of pornography has effected the marriages of many couples that I know. These are christian couples – both the wives and husbands who have suffered with addiction to pornography. I have had friends who have been very hurt knowing they can never compare to the images their eyes have observed or those their spouse has. This private sin may take place in private, but its pain is public – it kills marriages and breaks families.

      This material would allow parents to come together to learn more about internet safety. We would be able to present materials for fathers & Sons as door prizes. Recently there was a well attended presentation on pornography held in our diocese (about 30 minutes from our city). There were several people who I personally know who were unable to attend. This would be a second chance and a wonderful incentive to invite people for another opportunity.

      Immaculate Heart of Mary would be blessed to have the opportunity to serve our community with such truth. This would be my hope for how we would distribute the materials if we won them.

      I would certainly keep one set for my family. We home church and it would be a good tool for our discussion time as a group. I would give several copies to friends of mine that are pastors or leaders in their church or youth group. I might consider giving one to our homeschool coop to use with the kids as a class for the high schoolers next year. I thought a great way to really reach someone is to give a set to someone that is not a Christian… but to determine who and how to find the right people is still something I would need to consider. I would not want to waste it… but I do know several women who are not Christians that have porn issues with their husbands. As far as that goes, I know of a friend that has that issue who is a Christian, so I would give one to her family. One other place that might be a good one is giving it to a group that leads men/women in groups dealing with porn issues. No matter what, they would not go unused!

      Hi,great idea in the feast of Saint Joseph to help protect the innocence of children.
      I live in Colombia, South America I have two kids,first of all I would protect my kids and their cousins.
      My daughter with some friends have a Rosary where the kids pray the sorrows of the Virgin Mary and to the infant Jesus of Prague for intercession for sick children ,we have witnessed many miracles and conversions of families.They recorded a cd with 9 songs composed by them and all that collect is to help a foundation for sick children in Colombia. You can see the web page http://www.rosariodelosninos.com
      This Rosary has extended and now we are in Weston-Florida,Caracas Venezuela and in 7 parishes in Colombia.
      I would promote this with all the parents of the kids we are reaching that are many to help protect their innocence that is danger in this times.

      thank you

I will ask our pastor for the workshop to be presented for our school’s parents and parish adults. I will speak with the superintendent of our diocese catholic schools to have the workshop for all the catholic school teachers and staff- maybe part of their in service . I would meet with local parishes to bring the workshop to their school and parish. I would meet with our 5 local catholic high schools and again, train teachers, staff and parents. I would meet with the local public university catholic parishes to educate and help the students in college. I would like to see the materials, especially the workshop, used at high school orientation. Do you have materials appropriate for public schools? If so, I would reach out to the superintendent of my local school, who I am friendly with. I would then reach out to other schools in the area. I could really use more materials so I could get these initiatives going sooner and hopefully save someone from heartache and sin. I have already gathered a small group of parents from my parish and we are ready to start implementing the workshop. In closing, I am so grateful for Covenant Eyes and your materials, so thankful for all your efforts.

      Even though I’m recently remarried (I have a 13-year-old daughter and three new stepkids, 8, 10, and 11) I still belong to a group for Catholic single moms called Talitha Koum here in the Wichita, KS Diocese. A friend of mine from high school started this group shortly after I divorced (great timing for me!) in 2004. Our group leader was never married (until a few years ago) but started the group because she felt called by God to do so. She’s done a great job over the years to really challenge us as not only mothers, but as Catholic women. We’ve become an incredible group for accountability. I truly believe, despite so many different situations that we and our children are in, that our children are going to beat the statistics regarding children from single parent homes…….all because of this group. We’ve definitely discovered that even without fathers in the home, on another home or maybe not around at all, that God will fill in our gaps by His grace. He will not let our children get lost. None of us intended to raise children by ourselves but we’ve not just sat back and given up. We’ve learned to step up, seek out resources, and fight for the needs of our children when need be. It’s not how we wanted it to be, but there’s no reason why we can’t raise happy, healthy, Catholic children who can grow to be beacons of light in this world, spreading the Gospel….using words when necessary. :)

      If I were to win one of these bundles I would share them with single Catholic moms. Married couples have an uphill battle on their hands when it comes to technology, in the home and simply out in society. Single parents have an even bigger hill. We may not have another adult to back up our decisions in the home, or we’re battling what’s allowed in one house, though it may not be allowed in ours. It’s a battle for everyone. Our kids are worth this fight. Technology is not intrinsically evil but it’s definitely a resource in which caution and discretion MUST be used for the sake of ours. What our eyes do not see our hearts do not feel.

      I’ve seen Covenant Eyes at the Midwest Catholic Family Conferences and heard about it on Christian radio stations. I’ve wanted it in my home and in the homes of other moms for quite some time. I would love the opportunity to share this resource with other parents and be able to utilize it for the safety of my children here at home.

      Pick me! Pick me! Please! :)

      My name is Clint Carton and I am the founder of a Catholic men’s group on a college campus. In less than one year’s time the group has grown to over 30 men who faithfully serve and evangelize the men and women of our campus. The primary focus of our group which we call “The Brotherhood” is to teach men about Christ, how to be disciples, and how to actively live the life that they are called to as Catholic men. If I were given the porn protection packets I would use them to help guide the men (both in The Brotherhood and not) to break through the chains of pornography. Many of us have also struggled with the addiction but were able to break free and we are very adamant in our mission to help other men do the same. Thank you for all that you do and for this wonderful opportunity. My prayers are with you and your mission.

      In addition to the above, I am interested in the parenting educational materials. I am a father of 5 kids and want to be equipped to talk to my kids about sexual integrity. Right now my kids are young (under 6) but want to have a plan for how I will discuss.

      I am a survivor of sexual abuse at the hands of my stepfather. I grew up in a home where pornography was not a private addiction. My stepfather and mother were regular pornography viewer’s and swingers. Porn magazines and videos were openly laying around my childhood home. I have a teenage son who has secretly started to view pornography and my second son will be a teenager in a few months. My sister’s second marriage has just recently ended in a divorce due to her husband’s pornography appetite, and her first marriage ended in divorce for the same reason. I need a spiritual tool that I can apply to my spirtual life. I don’t know how to communicate to my son dangerous pornography is to our spiritual life and relationships. I would share this with my sons, husband, my sister, and me. I would donate the remaining copies to my parish youth program at Saint Michael’s church in Poway CA. I know first hand the affects pornography has in our spiritual life and our relationship with God. We are a practicing Catholic family and my greatest challenge is no longer about abusive childhood and what could have been, it’s about how can I help myself teach my teenage son the dangers of pornography in a generation were it’s just a click away on all the electronic devices at his disposal. He views me as the over protective dramatic mother. Being able to provide myself and son with a different perspective about pornography would be a blessing for our family.

      I am a college student, so these kind of temptations are always around. I am part of a Catholic Men’s group on campus, and porn is an issue many of us deal with. Although we have the close support of one another, Covenant Eyes would help us stay accountable during the times we are not together. This is a great group of guys striving to become the men God has called them to be, and I think this would further help myself and these men see more clearly our calling to be holy husbands, priests, or single-persons.

      With 10 bundles, I would set up a cycle in which they would be shared throughout my parish, and then perhaps even through other nearby parishes. I would reserve one bundle for the Confirmation program and our Youth program, which I help with, and the other nine bundles would be loaned to nine different households every two weeks. In that manner, these bundles could be introduced to all 350 families in my parish in almost exactly 18 months. Imagine, within less than two years, the parish could experience a renewal like never before… Thank you so much for your generosity, I shall continue to pray for you.

      I believe this gift would be inspirational to me and many people around me. I have seen these give away events on Covenant Eyes before and didn’t enter in any of them. The reason being, I would read through some of the reasons why people were entering and knew that they needed the great gifts and tools more I than I did. I realized they would be able to put them to better use. On this give away however, I believe there is a true need for these tools in my area. Being a high school boy myself, I know people and friends that struggle with this temptation. I believe with a sincere heart that I would be able to put these tools in the right hands to make a difference in peoples lives and I want to make a difference in their lives and support them to become better children of God. So to answer your question, I would give these to my peers, my spiritual directors, and use them myself to become a loving resource of support and understanding for others as they struggle with this temptation, and, God willing, be given the grace to help lead them out of it forever.

      First of all I would use some of the information to help me with my own struggles to become free from an addiction to pornography. I’ve made great strides in the past several years but I still feel the chains of this addiction everyday. Luckily, I would have plenty of bundles to share with others while I am still healing. I currently work for a ministry that sends out teams to reach out to youth. The information from these bundles could help these teams effectively fight the pornography epidemic that is affecting this country. A third way that these resources would be used would be in the lives of many Catholic families that I know. The fathers of these families are fighting hard to raise good Catholic families including strong catholic sons. However, the fight against pornography is way more intense than it was ten years ago let alone what it was like when these men were teenagers. Hopefully these resources will not only create a pornography free environment for these families but it will also help to raise future generations of people willing to stand up and fight against pornography. Another way that I would use these resources is to help a local fellowship group that I am a part of. We are a group of people helping each other out in many ways, including struggles with lust which quite often includes addictions to pornography. I’ve been fortunate enough to read parts of Delivered and Bishop Loverde’s letter, so while spreading these resources I would be able to speak to the power that both of them contain.

      My father was addicted to pornography, and it profoundly changed the way he thought about everything. I’ll never forget asking him one time what he would do if the picture he was looking at turned out to be me, his daughter….would he throw the picture away? His reply, “not if you looked good enough.” Later on, I know he regretted many things, but his addiction to porn….never went away. What’s even worse, he exposed me to porn at a very young age, and it has had a profound effect on my life as well, and many decisions I’ve made were due to how that exposure forever changed the way I viewed myself and those around me. Thankfully, my life has also been changed by my relationship with Christ, His Church, and His Truth about love and the human person. What should have been a huge negative in my life, He has turned into a blessing. If I were to use these bundles, one would go on our home computer, and the rest would be used for our parish, and other surrounding churches.

      This is an issue close to my heart because I have had to help my husband battle against the evils of pornography. He discovered it at a very young and impressionable age and struggled for years on his own. Our marriage is stronger today because we have fought a winning battle against this horrible reality, but we would have never been successful if we had been fighting on our own. The Catholic Church has played a fundamental role in helping us to seek the help, forgiveness, and healing that we both so desperately needed! God has been so merciful on our marriage and i have already seen how He wants to use our experience to help others who are suffering the hell of pornography. If I recieved these packets I would use them first in my family to help reinforce the protection we have in place for my husband and our 3 sons, and also to educate us as to how to help and protect our sons within an increasingly porn accessible culture. Then I would reach out to those I know within our circle of family and friends who are struggling with pornography. I would give a packet to my childrens’ elementary school. I would give a packet to our church library. I would share one amongst friends with children. Most importantly, I would use the knowledge these packets would equip me with to be more vocal within my community about how important it is for everyone to take their heads out of the sand and realize that pornography exposure at any level, in any amount, in any form, seriously impacts the lives of this exposed… The impacts are always harmful, but there is hope! There is a way to fight back! There is the possibility of freedom and healing! God can do anything and my marriage is proof of that fact. I pray that He gives me every opportunity to help others to experience the same freedom and healing, and better yet, protection from such a terrible slavery.

      I would distribute these resources to other Religion Department Heads in our Catholic School Board who can then share with their fellow teacher colleagues. I figure this way we could reach the 1000’s of students that we see here in Ottawa. I am also planning on putting together a professional development presentation for educators on this problem and would find it handy… Thanks and keep up the fantastic work!

      I am involved with two men’s groups–one a Bible study which my quadriplegic friend and I lead and the other a Bible study / men’s support group and I would give them to men in these groups. A younger Christian brother, a man in his mid 30s, asked me to mentor him, and I would share with him as well.

      I’m the High School catechism at our parish and I see this program as a great opportunity no only for our parish but others and possibly Protestant churches. I live in a small town which has one Catholic Church and several Protestant churches. I would like to present the material to our parish along with 9 other churches. Pornography is an issue that affects all churches. If the content is too ‘Catholic’, which it doesn’t sound to be, then I would use the material at Catholic churches in Northeastern Colorado. If it is used at non Catholic Churches not only do I see a great opportunity to open peoples eyes about pornography but also the Truthes of the Catholic Church. Thank you for your ministry.

      about 5 months ago I began to study biblical sexuality in depth in preparation for a 5 week course that I am teaching in my church (Baptist) during the sunday school hour. The men and women are separated, and we have about 50-70 attending each class. Because this is so appropriate for exactly what we are studying right now (men are doing a hard look at pornography, women are studying biblical definition of sexuality and marriage, erotica and porn in women, what to do when a loved one is involved with porn, and how to keep sexual intimacy alive in marriage.) I would use these gifts as a special give-a-way.

      We all need it don’t we? I lead a group of 15 men in my church that have been devastated or struggle with pornography. We need all the armor we can gather and all the weapons available to fight this blight of sin and restore families and relationships. How many more than our 15 in a church of nearly 6,000 or in our city need to join our group? Not only do we fight against the sin and bondage of pornography but we need to find Christ more alluring than all the passions the world throws at us. May God continue to bless us as we strive to obey and follow Him.

I believe these resources will equip me with talking points for the two older boys, & the books would be great confirmation gift. I’ve been thinking and praying for God to open a door so I can start this conversation with them. I will give the other copies to the parish youth religious ed classes, as well as some friends whom I know would benefit.

This is very close to my heart since I’m trying to support my boyfriend to overcome his addiction. Healing is difficult, but I think that helping others realize about the problem, can also be useful for me, for my boyfriend and for other people I may encounter my way that are suffering from the same issue.

      One of your articles on the blog helped today to counsel a couple on porn. The guy did not see it as a problem, and the woman was tired of being used as a fantasy toy. We are a pregnancy help center, so this issue was outside my expertise. However, God used the opportunity to bring the woman to Christ. The man is now open to learning how porn damages families and relationships. I would love these resources, and would love to use them to teach men the TRUTH about porn. I want to be apart of restoring families.

      I am the pastor at St. Matthias Parish in Crown Point, Indiana. The parish’s Peace and Social Justice Commission has been trying to work against society’s trends and informing the parish and local community of the harm that pornography does to an individual and to society. Our deacon has preached about it, they have organized rallies and handed out literature to our parishioners. It is interesting that at the first rally we found a partner in this cause in the local Sikh religion.
      As with everyone else that is dealing with this topic good resources are difficult to come by. St. Matthias Parish would use these resources for study by our commission, offer night to come see these resources and make these items available to other local organizations that want to deal with this problem.

      I am currently teaching a 12 week class I am calling “AXIS: the turning point.” It I a class to educate men on how to help our brothers who are stuck in pornography. Last Sunday we talked about how porn effects the brain like drugs, This Sunday I am talking about how pornography effects our relationships and I am pulling a lot from “your brain on porn.” Eventually we will get to the main points, AXIS, which are A: Accountability – community in the body of Christ, X: “X it off” – removing our source of temptation, I: “Incinerate our mental trash” – renewing our mind through Christ, S: Seeking The Lord continuously.
      The class is all my own curriculum, aside from the sources I pull from like your resource I mentioned. There are 10 guys/fathers/sons in the class besides myself and my co-teacher and this would be a fantastic parting resource to give each of them at the end of the 12 weeks. I will be teaching this class again ( this one is my first go around) next winter and I would love the resources for myself to better my class. :-)

      As a deacon, we have seen the effects of pornography in our community as devastating at every level, in the home life and in high schools, and we have seen it even in “good kids” who were with us on pilgrimages and service retreats. We wish we’d had these resources with us then, but the need is only growing, at a disturbing rate. Since then, we have found out that all six of our sons have been exposed to pornography by “friends” at one point or another, and one of them even succumbed to an addiction for a short time. This is every parent’s nightmare, and we have seen the effects that it has on the brain of a good kid, quickly changing his whole outlook on life. Our spiritual director has convinced us that this is demonic, and can get a quick hold on a young person’s mind. As a deacon, I have numerous outlets to distribute this highly praised program. My ministry is to family life where my wife and I hold mentoring sessions for parents, we are Diocesan Couple to Couple Natural Family Planning teachers and promoters, we do marriage and baptismal preps, as well as serving on the RCIA and Confirmation Teams. We are in charge of the High School PSR program, and actively involved with the CYO at both the local and diocesan level. We have been disturbed by the growing pornographic attitude even within primetime television and PG13 movies, which opens a portal to further exploration through internet. Parents think it is “normal” and have been desensitized, and it is our goal to raise the clarion call of awareness and help couples restore purity within their homes. If parents are willing to allow impurity to enter their own lives, then how can they protect their children? We must reach our youth as well as newlyweds and parents, who are entered into Covenant Love, for themselves and their children’s future purity. Parents are poorly equipped, as we were, to handle this technological assault on the family. It is in humility and purity that the Blessed Virgin Mary was chosen before all time to become the Mother of Our Lord. Restoring a spirit of purity and humility, of accountability to each other and to God, is primary to increasing holy vocations to marriage, chaste singles, priesthood and the consecrated life. Do many understand the spirit of True Covenant Love, in Purity of Heart and Mind, Body and Soul, the Sacramental aspect of our Sexuality (ToB)? A lack of understanding these issues is the REAL vocations crisis – across the board! Thank you for this invaluable tool to reach into the heart of this problem. Your program is the first step in addressing people where they are at, and goes hand in hand with ToB resources … this WILL change the world!

I grew up seeing this issue in my family, and then later in college. I’m also a military chaplain. These kits would go to my kids and to my Soldiers, because porn is an enormous issue in the military, especially during the deployments that we’ve been on to Iraq and Afghanistan. Unfortunately, many don’t even believe that it’s an issue for them. Once we start to show them the problems that porn causes, they struggle with getting hold of good resources to help them work through and recover.

      We recently finished “Internet Safety 101” produced by Enough is Enough which was very well received by all.
      We began searching for an organization and system that would first be effective and second, friendly and supportive of our personal beliefs and family orientation.
      We are delighted with what we have found with Covenant Eyes and are in the process of approving the implementation of the system not only in our church but to find a way to sponsor as many limited income families as we can afford.
      Rather we win any free Give-a-ways or not, we are excited and appreciative of what Covenant Eyes has made available to parents, families and organizations to help us protect our children and build accountability into our relationships.

      We, the Knights of Columbus here in our Iowa home town are starting a program on Pornography, and the damage it is doing to the minds of the viewers. The damage that is and has been done to Marriages, relationships, lives, the damage that it has done and is doing to the Spiritual lives. This also includes the spouses and families of those addicted to Porn. I started when I was 14 (Total Innocence) I beat it to a point, by the time I was 55 (I am now 82) but the damage to the brain, still lingers on, you can not let your guard down. Like PST it comes back to haunt you. Prayer, Adoration, Confession, and Spiritual Direction, all these help tremendously. Take it to Jesus, and his Holy Mother. It all works. This bundle would help our effort tremendously, especially in the Confessional. In Hope and in His Holy Name Thank You. Chas.

      I’m a theologian and local youth leader in church, and director of ESDEA publishing house from Croatia.I passed through hell of pornography and when I tried to find a help, there was none. In my country there is no even one Christian or secular center for pornography addiction. I am attending “The way of purity” which is on English, but here, there are many of young people in Balkan (six ex Yugoslavian countries) who don’t speak foreign language. Church, doesn’t speak about it because it is still taboo topic, while young people struggles a lot. I know few of my colleagues that struggles, but no one is there to give them support to quit porn. I want to establish one center for those who are enslaved by porn for whole Balkan. That includes six countries of ex Yugoslavia: Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Montenegro and Republic of Macedonia. Ten persons I will give the boundle:
      1. President of Union of conferences of Seventh Day Adventist Conference (Adriatic Union) – Elder Zlatko Musija
      2. President of South-East Adventist Union (Belgrade) – Elder Djordje Trajkovski
      3. Adriatic Union Youth leader – mr. sc. Bobo Marceta
      4. South-East Union Youth leader and Dean of Adventist Theological Seminary in Belgrade- mr. sc. Dragan Grujičić
      5. President of Evangelical Pentechostal Church in Croatia – Elder Damir Špoljarić
      6. President of Baptist Church in Croatia – Elder Toma Magda
      7. M.A. student for Christian Counseling (my cousin) Damir Pil (we are planing that center together)
      8. J.B. (18) one of my best friends, who is still struggling with porn.
      9. President of ASI Croatia association (who is wired with the group of adventist laymen and businessmen)
      10. One for me, to translate and publish it on Balkanian languages (Croatian, Serbian, Slovenian and Macedonian).

      The goal is of dual nature: 1) Short-term vision: to help all who suffer to find freedom in Christ; 2) Long-term vision: to educate pastors and professors how they could educate church members, students (future leaders) and parents, how they could educate their children, how they could create new values in their society.

      We are part of a Christian community, with many families with young boys. Unfortunately, we live in an age where we can no longer afford to wait until the previously usual age (around 10-12) to equip our children about sexual matters. We need to reclaim sex for the Lord, and train our children in His purpose for sex, while at the same time giving them the weapons for this significant spiritual battle. We can no longer afford to think our children won’t be tempted by it and succumb to it. God is bigger! We would pass these out to several families, as well as in our small church.

      i would use this in our church. I have been so blessed by 2 other brothers who decided to be men and be honest enough to shed light on this area of their lives and I did as well. It has been a few years and we meet weekly, sometime multiple times a week, to hold one another accountable. There has been so much grace poured out and we have grown farther than i ever dreamed as far as being free from this sin and having true close brothers in faith. We have learned so much of the tools we can use for our computers and our phones and the roots of this sin in our lives that I want to share it. I know a lot of people had heard of these tools including covenant eyes but have lacked strong men in their lives to push them to use the grace God provides through these tools. I want to use these to share with young men and leaders in our church to bring more of a focus on this area … it truly is every man’s battle and we need to stand on the freedom in Christ. i think this could help.

      It is right and good that we do everything in our power to protect, nurture and grow our children and young people to walk in the right pathway. There are more pitfalls for young people today due to being plugged in. That being said we must also protect ourselves. There is a big bulls eye on our backs because we are trying to walk the right pathway, that is straight and narrow. The problem is that we as adults, parents, father’s and mother’s keep falling off the path. How did Paul put it this way in Romans 7:19, New International Version (NIV) 19 “For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing.” Your resources are valuable so they can be used to strengthen us, to strengthen the broken and hurting among us, so that we can live in God’s forgiveness and renewal. I need this as much if not more than the next person, but as I say that I want the next person also to benefit from the resources. I would want the resources to be given out in a loving caring manner through our church and to friends. Our church has a library as well as a men’s ministry that would use them. We also have some men’s support groups that could utilize the. They will bless many lives and save children and hurting families.

And beside God and His Word, Covenant Eyes is one of the most valuable things that I myself use. I am really encouraged that this is offered and gives people the opportunity to be encouraged by not just Covenant Eyes but all those around who they can see are going through the same or similar issues as them. I know that it was a great relief of a burden upon myself when I learned that others are going through the same thing and actually want to be accountable and work on getting out of Porn addiction or completely be out of Porn addiction and continue to be accountable to those around them. So I would you these materials to help everyone around me by being able to provide resources for them to have.
