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

I was a recovering alcoholic before I was a sex addict, so I was familiar with the way the addiction process works in the mind. But, I have never had it put to me in a more understandable way than Jason presented it at this workshop. I also believe in any recovery, Christ must be the center of the program and with EMB, He is. The washing away of our sins with the blood of Christ on Saturday night was probably the most moving thing I have ever done. May God continue to bless New Life Ministries. – Jon

This is the We Dared, 30-Day Challenge testimony read on the radio today:

946 days ago I was on my way home from EMB . I wasn’t sure how my life, or marriage was going to turn out. But I knew it would be better than it had been. In just a couple days I learned more about myself than I could ever imagine.  It has not been a easy road.  It has been filled with many victories and also failures. Using the knowledge I learned and my SVG Brothers to lean on during rough times I have developed into a much better husband and father.

For a long time I have felt that I need to give back, and help other men escape the bondage of sexual immorality . Then you came out with the WeDared 30-Day challenge. I knew when I first heard Steve talk about it , that I could do something with this. And I have !  A couple weeks ago I got up in front of my church congregation. I shared some stats , and part of my testimony.  Then I challenged every man there, and asked them to to challenge men they knew to also accept the dare. I’ve never been more nervous . But it has been worth it. Since then I have had a few men come to me , and shared that they have been struggling for years.   So thank you for all you do!! You are helping broken men become the hands and feet of Jesus!
