New to be Released – Tempted No More

Many Christians struggle with pornography addictions. This is problem Book Cover - Tempted No Moreis greatly misunderstood by the church. Shaming people into hiding the problem, and using guilt or fear as tools to control this behavior simple does not work. Instead there are clear biblical principles that not only lead us out of the control of the flesh, but we have the promise that God gives us His loving kindness while we are learning to grow in grace. Instead of demanding that we clean up our lives so we can come to Him, God meets us where we are, and rescues us from the power of sin. And He journeys with us in fellowship as we learn how to walk in the new life we have been given through Christ.

If you know someone who struggles with pornography, they may find hope in the journey that led me from shame to freedom. Tempted No More will be released later this month.
