Here is the Every Man’s Battle workshop testimony Steve read on the radio today:

This time that I have spent with the men and counselor has been life changing. The addiction has taken over my life to the point I have lost the two most important people in my life: first God and then my wife of 38 years. She gave me three chances and after being sober for 4 years I had a slip and that was too much for her. EMB has shown me why I have to use porn as my drug of choice and that the shame keeps me in my cycle. w that God has forgiven me and still loves me. I don’t know if my wife ever will be able to, but I have to focus on God and trust in Him and his plan for me. This has been a safe place and the men here make it safe. I am afraid of leaving, but know that I have to and that I have tools to use and I have God with me. Thank you so much EMB! - Gary

Here is the Women in the Battle workshop testimony Steve read on the radio today:

Prior to this weekend, I was existing not living. I was numb, struck, depressed, tired, alone, and had no joy. I pictured my insides drooping like a weeping willow bent low in freezing rain. This WITB weekend has been exactly what I needed to motivate me to make some changes and to be pro-active in my healing and no longer put off the hard work and decisions, no matter how daunting. I realize now that I cannot do this alone and that I need to establish a support system. Isolation allows for the enemy to attack. This weekend is the best thing a woman can do for herself to start the healing process. It pulls you out of your dark pit and gives you hope and strength. - Brenda

This is the Every Man’s Battle workshop testimony Steve read on the radio today:

I entered this weekend as a slave to my addiction for 35 years. I am leaving this weekend feeling the chains of the bondage finally broken with a new source of freedom. I am leaving with tools and a plan to continue my integrity of sexual purity along with a group of men I will be accountable to and available to. I know that I am not cured but I have a plan and resources to help me succeed. It took 35 years to come to this workshop and will take many years to undo the thoughts and temptations that brought me to this point. I want to thank the staff and my fellow participants for being open and loving to someone that they didn’t even know before this weekend. I would encourage any and all men to come to this workshop. – David
