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

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

Before coming to EMB I was trying to do everything on my own. I felt so alone in this walk. I would make mistake after mistake and never feel like I was able to break the stronghold. Eventually I just stopped asking for prayer because I felt like no one understood what I was going through. I thank God so much for allowing me to find the Every Man’s Battle workshop. I finally feel like I can truly be connected to God without the stronghold of pornography holding me down. I believe that the tools that EMB has provided for all of us will further advance me into my destiny. I finally know what hope feels like. To my new brothers in Christ, I thank you for your honesty, kind words, and willing hearts. I truly believe that God will heal us and fix our broken hearts. To the EMB staff, words cannot express what your sacrifice, patience, and faithfulness have done for so many, so all I will say is thank you. This weekend has changed my life and now I truly believe that I am a life changer. Love you All. - Lawrence

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

I was angry when I came to EMB, but I didn’t know why. I wrestled with whether I was here because my heart is truly repentant or simply because I got caught. I love the Lord, but I am a proud man. I enjoyed pornography, but when I indulged, the Holy Spirit would convict me. I have tried numerous times on my own to quit, but have not been successful. I realize that if my heart is not truly repentant, EMB and this weekend is just a waste of my time and money. I have decided and I am resolved to be a man of sexual integrity. If my wife stays or goes, if my friends know or don’t know, if my church family thinks I am a hypocrite. I am ready. EMB has given me hope, but more than just the fleeting kind of hope that I have experienced before an emotional high after a fiery sermon or motivational talk. My hope is now based on examples of men I met who are victorious over this struggle and have given me Biblically based practical tools I can use to have lasting success. - Will
