What if you could watch footage of yourself just as you're caught in a moment of temptation? No one else knows what's about to happen, but you: Your finger might be lingering above the “play” button. You might be walking down the specific hallway where you might see her. You might be standing in front of your bedroom door. Hitting pause at that moment would hold a lot of meaning for you in battling your unwanted sexual behavior. And the pattern is deep, the temptation is painfully intense and you can barely catch your breath. Stretch out your hands, take a deep breath and let's hit pause together. In today's episode of “Becoming Whole,” we offer you 3 Steps to Navigating Temptation. We hope these three simple steps can become part of your new routine so you can begin pursuing your truest desires.Highlights:1. Admit to yourself that you're tempted. Even when the temptation is a small nudge, admit to yourself then that you're tempted. 2. Reach out to an ally and admit temptation. Text your ally (someone who knows your struggle), get on the phone and then connect with them.3. Figure out what you're really looking for. Self-Mastery takes time. Give yourself grace.Sex is never just about sex. It is deeply embedded in our identity as both male and female.Sex is always meant to be unitive, highly relational. What is it that you're really looking for in the areas of intimacy and identity?There are patterns to when you are tempted. And, there's a “why” behind your temptation.If you have been impacted by Regen or Becoming Whole, would you consider giving? You can do that here.

Brad speaks with Dr. Kelsy Burke, a sociologist from the University of Nebraska, who discusses her new book The Pornography Wars: The Past, Present, and Future of America's Obscene Obsession. https://www.bloomsbury.com/us/pornography-wars-9781635577365/ Burke spent the last five years researching and interviewing internet pornography's opponents and its sympathizers. She does a deep dive into the long history of pornography in America and then turns her gaze on our present society to examine the ways this industry touches on the most intimate parts of American lives. She offers a complete understanding of the major players in the debates around porn's place in society: everyone from sex workers, activists, therapists, religious leaders, and consumers. In doing so, she addresses and debunks the myths that surround porn and porn usage while showing how everything from the way we teach children about sex to the legal protections for what can be published is tied up in the deeply complicated battles over pornography.

What a joy it is to have my spiritual mentor, Denise Palmer, joining me once a month for a Titus 2 Talk! On these special episodes, Denise and I will be doing a deep dive into the truths God has taught us through the book of Titus. On this episode, we discuss the word chaste. This word means to be pure of carnality, chaste, modest; immaculate; clean. So often, ideas of purity are connect with the outward. How do we dress? How do we present ourselves? Do we outwardly portray biblical womanhood? While all these things are important, the most important aspect is much deeper. We will not live a chaste outward life if we do not have a chaste heart. What does is say to our God who gave everything for us if we rest on Him for our soul's salvation, yet we continue to allow the filth of this world to reign in our hearts? As women who are seeking to conform into the image of our Savior, we must live lives defined by chastity. We transition to several practical areas in which women today might struggle with being chaste, inwardly and outwardly. . . -Pornography amongst women -The influence of entertainment/media on our purity -Guarding your relationships (as a married and unmarried woman) I Thessalonians 4:3, 7 "For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness."

Many people assume that pornography is not a serious concern among the Muslim community. In reality, youth and adults alike are faced with the struggle to overcome porn addiction.

In today's episode, he shares his insights into the negative impacts of porn consumption and addiction on a marriage, and how Purify Your Gaze can help.

Listener discretion is advised.Laura grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania but had a challenging childhood. She experienced childhood neglect, and from a young age, porn was normalized in her life.

This week we talk about how to feel confident with your vulva. It's one of the hardest things to do as females as we can so often put ourselves down about how our vulva looks. Realistically though every vulva is different, which means that no one vulva is perfect or the right way to be. Pornography and being socialised in a sadly very patriarchal society has conditioned us to believe that we need our bodies to be “perfect” and that is just not the case. Let's talk about it!

Addiction to pornography is a growing epidemic in our country and around the world. These alarming statistics have only gotten worse over the last decade: Pornography is very prevalent in our society, and porn addiction affects about 5-8% of adults. People addicted to porn spend at least 11 to 12 hours per week viewing porn. Most people who have a porn addiction say that porn hurts their personal relationships. Many conditions co-occur with porn addiction, including anxiety, depression, sex addiction, social anxiety and substance use disorders. What can you do to battle addiction to pornography or help others who are facing that battle themselves? Find out in today's episode with my friend Julia Hoyda. Julia is a PhD candidate in neuroscience at the University of Cincinnati. She is a cradle Catholic born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago. She is a graduate of Hillsdale College and the Associate Director of Special Projects for Magdala Ministries, a rapidly growing organization that helps women battle sexual addictions.
Hillary Morgan Ferrer is the founder and Mama-Bear-in-Chief of Mama Bear Apologetics. She is the chief author and editor of the bestselling Mama Bear Apologetics: Empowering Your Kids to Challenge Cultural Lies and Mama Bear Apologetics Guide to Sexuality: Empowering Your Kids to Understand and Live Out God's Design. Hillary has her master's degree in biology from Clemson University and a master's degree in apologetics from Biola University. Today she shares how she was led to a deeper understanding of God and inclined to worship during her master's in biology. She explains how as she studied cell biology, she was given example after example of how the physical attributes of our body point us to God and the spiritual realm. Her teachings and writings have inspired thousands of people to understand and experience how physical things continue to point us to the spiritual. She explains that if the physical points us to the spiritual, then gender and marriage have new meanings and purposes. She teaches that our bodies are the language of God's mystery, a roadmap guiding us into deeper intimacy with the Divine. One of our favorite moments in this recording was understanding how sex has been so perverted in our culture, distorting our view and understanding of God. One of the amazing questions Charity asked is, "What does it look like for us to celebrate our kid's sexuality, guide them in what is appropriate but avoid shaming them for things that they have done wrong?" Hillary takes the question and adds a new perspective on how gratitude and humility play a huge part in leading our kids in their sexuality. We too often avoid choosing gratitude and showing mercy because of our own brokenness and pride. If we can teach our kids to be self-aware through our own example of awareness, our children can choose Christ instead of merely abstaining from sin out of unhealthy motives. The challenge is: "Are we being then Deputy Holy Spirit to our kids and leading with shame? Or are we leading with an example of humility and gratitude?"Hillary Morgan and Mama Bear Apologetics:https://mamabearapologetics.com/https://www.instagram.com/mamabearapologetics/Our Resources:https://www.instagram.com/restored2more/https://restored2more.com/https://restored2more.com/courses/
Some people are so enamored with their habits that they are unaware of what kind of habits they allow into their lives. They are unconscious, that their habits are controlling them and preventing them from progressing as they are way too comfortable with them. While many of us are aware that our habits are unhealthy. But we don't know how to let go of them or lack the courage to do so because they are such an integral part of everyday lives. However, we know deep down that we must let go of them in order to grow and become better individuals. Our habits play a significant role in defining who we are. Our characters mirror the habits we have in our daily lives. Therefore, it is important that we only let habits into our lives that are in line with who we want to be as individuals. Whatever phase you're in right now, it's fundamental to assess our habits and determine which habits are helping us in our growth and which habits are hindering our growth and, ultimately, destroying us. Because of this, we will be able to identify which habits we'll continue to allow into our lives and which habits we'll need to let go. In this episode, Andrew discusses what the three stages of self-awareness in porn recovery are and how they can help a lot of individuals break free from the addiction. He also talks about how self-awareness can help YOU in overcoming your porn addiction, as well as how our decisions play a role in letting habits into our lives. Many people turn to porn anytime they are stressed, insecure, or don't feel like living their life; they perceive porn as a source of comfort, despite the fact that it is extremely destructive to their wellbeing and has corrupted their perspective of people, particularly women. We all experience a bad and painful aspect of life, and we may feel the need to disconnect from it from time to time. However, as we disconnect from the world, we should engage in habits that are worth investing our time and energy in, habits that do not prevent us from growing and evolving, habits that help ease our stress while still finding a reason to be positive and love life even more.

A sinister sexy cauldron swirling around.”Budgie blushes and shares his admiration for Animal and Louis Bellson!Budgie tells of,The Banshees visiting The Cure recording Pornography at RAK London. The Cure kept a well-stocked bar for visiting minstrels and wastrels!You'll always find Drummers in the Kitchen at Parties.Lol and Budgie say,Juju and Pornography go together like a Cloak and Dagger.Both recorded live in a big studio with no separation.Juju songs played live before recording, just like a new band. John McGeoch said,It's more Hitchcock than Hammer Horror. More Blood dripping on a Daisy, than Fangs biting flesh.Into The LightJohn McGeoch used a gizmo with cog wheels to bow his guitar. Budgie develops Octopus limbs.Lol says,Bands after the Banshees didn't have that tension. The drop and the twist is all. The push and pull gives the songs their strength.

The only relationship you need in order to find recovery is with God. In this episode, Jason jumps to the other side of the mic with Steve to talk to Troy about his journey through his addiction and subsequent divorce. Growing up Troy held on to two beliefs. The first, that he could never tell anyone about his addiction and second, that he would never be worthy. He grew up feeling that he was his father's least favorite son and translated some of that belief to his perception of how God saw him; feeling that he always had to prove he was worth something. After serving a mission Troy quickly got married and he describes those early years of marriage as being very miserable because he felt unsafe to let his wife see any of his weaknesses. Troy checked out of his marriage and fell hard back into his struggle with addiction which soon escalated. He felt caught in the exhausting circle of trying to hide his addictive actions and still continue to seek addiction. Even with a second chance in his marriage, when he witnessed amazing changes in his wife, he struggled to overcome the shame of his previous actions and thought he didn't deserve to be happy. Troy shares how wonderful and supportive his wife was through his struggle. He admits he was white knuckling and while being stationed overseas he soon dove back into his addiction. His wife's discovery brought an end to their marriage. Troy tenderly shares the pain of his shame, and how encompassing it became. His divorce brought on depression and suicidal thoughts. Hope wasn't immediate, but a sliver of hope came from hearing Chris and Autumn's story. Troy learned that God speaks to him through stories and he shares some of those stories with Steve and Jason. Through enduring the loss of his marriage he realized he needed to fight for his needs and for his relationship with his kids. Troy found that in letting go of his need to validate his worthiness from others, his relationship with God deepened. He now knows that God sees him as beloved, is crazy about him and about each one of us.If this episode resonates with you, or you know someone who might benefit from it, please feel free to share the link to the episode with them.

How many of us are affected by a story of sexual brokenness?How many of us feel lost and isolated in our shame?How many of us feel disconnected from community and are tempted to feel hopeless? In this podcast, we share the stats of sexual brokenness and the mission God has called us to. We invite YOU to be a part of the movement and ask if you would pray about partnering with us to reclaim enemy territory. Today, Clinton and I repent. We're sorry for trying to do too much on our own and not asking for your help sooner. We now see that we have deprived you of the blessing of sharing the load and burden for this ministry. In this episode, we vulnerably share the journey of Restored 2 More and God calling us out of our previous lines of work to build this ministry. We explain how it started, the trials we faced early on, and the struggles we now face that could potentially shut us down. We believe that God will make a way and is already impressing on people's hearts about how they can become a partner and a teammate for the restoration movement in Jesus' name. Listen today, but most of all, pray. Pray and ask God how He wants to lead you. Pray that we would be humble yet bold. Pray that our faith would be unshakeable and that in all trials, we would consider it joy and press into Jesus. Thank you for listening, but more importantly, thank you for participating in the work God has called us to.How to contact us to become a partner:email: firstname.lastname@example.org://restored2more.com/contact/#1https://www.instagram.com/restored2more/
**Warning - Explicit Content**Hannah grew up in a very prominent religious culture, which didn't stop horrible things from happening to her. She was molested as a child, dealt with different addictions, and was recently diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. I think sometimes we think that having religious values will keep us and our families exempt from terrible things happening to us, which is not the case at all. Hannah was so brave in telling her story and bringing awareness to bipolar disorder. Our hope is to have her story reach the ones who need to hear it. Thank you for listening to our episodes.

This week's podcast guest, Alex Diaz, has experienced how porn can negatively impact relationship satisfaction and relationship stability, especially in his marriage. During this conversation, Consider Before Consuming host Garrett Jonsson talks with Alex about how his porn consumption distorted his understanding of healthy sex, how it contributed to sexual dysfunction, and why he decided that rehab was necessary for himself.
