What an awesome testimony about how one man's commitment to life-change affects so many others.
Dear Mr. Bob,
As you and I both know, my father was a very lost man eight years ago. Every aspect of his life was completely unmanageable, and our family suffered for it. Further, the influences in his life at that time, be it co-workers, friends, or even church members, seemed to pull him further from victory. However, despite the enormous burden of his out of control addiction, God saw the real Conrad through the layers of destruction. He saw a warrior, leader, and servant that He himself made him to be, and he wouldn’t settle for less. His plan for he and his family was far too great to give satan another win. Eight years later, a man that I wanted to be nothing like became my role model in Christ. He became an attentive, deeply loving father and husband, reflecting his new-found love for Christ through his actions. He spat in the face of addiction, ran to Jesus and helped carry other men to victories in their own lives and homes. Now, I look at this man and see a warrior, one that any man would walk alongside in battle, including me. I can honestly say that I can no longer remember the man my dad was. His victory holds so much weight that no sin can support. Even if I attempt to think about the past, including the unfavorable, broken aspects of it, all I see is triumph. He did the hard things to earn it, plain and simple (well, scratch that, definitely not plain, nor simple!). It makes me smile, laugh, and most of all, feel unbelievably thankful to Christ. Through years of sobriety, my dad continues to kick the cowardly ass of sexual addiction, and for that, men like you deserve a most loving “thank you”.
In the military, we learned that in order to be an effective leader, you must first be a good follower. Unfortunately, many men follow the wrong people, the wrong desires, and the wrong lifestyle. Thank God because of men like you, my dad didn’t wind up as part of that lifelong statistic. I understand you have your own story of recovery, and though I don’t know it, I do know this. God saw a warrior in you as well, just as he saw in my dad. He knew you too were meant to lead your family out of the darkness by first FOLLOWING and surrendering to Jesus. Thankfully, he also knew the influence you would have on my father one day. Thank you Bob, for being the mentor, friend and brother my dad NEEDED, and always will need. Thank you for helping him save himself and his family. Personally, thank you from me, his oldest son, who got to witness the transformation first hand. Because of men like you, I now look to my dad and see how a husband should love and serve his wife, dying to himself to embrace true intimacy. I’ll tell you, those words hold a lot of weight.
Iron sharpens iron, truer words have never been spoken. I’d say by now; you and my old man are about the toughest weapons forged by God in the battle of sexual sin. Never change who you are, keep changing lives… and keep my old man in line would you?
Your brother and friend
The reality is that as men we all struggle. And for some it’s an overwhelming struggle with pornography. Women are beautiful. We know that this beauty attracts us. We know where to find porn and we know how to keep it hidden. In our culture the line has been blurred on what is porn. The magazines, TV and the Internet put it right in front of us every day of our lives.
It is time to make some decisions. What are we doing with all the junk that is coming at us? Consume it, get in way over our heads or are we going to live for things that are greater? There is a point in which we have to acknowledge that we are not proud of the things we keep hidden from our wives, girlfriends, and children. The question is simply will you live a life that is transparent?

“When I first heard of this workshop, I thought I wasn’t going to get much out of it. And when I first met everyone, I thought to myself that I don’t trust these people and I’m not sure how this is going to go. EMB has ended up being one of the greatest events of my life. It has done so much for me and I have made some wonderful brothers.” – Scott
“I am grateful that the focus was truly upon my heart’s condition. I have tried a variety of strategies in the past and failed. I have recently come to understand that I cannot “white knuckle” this and beat it in my own strength. I am walking away hopeful for true renewal and restoration.” – Daron
“To everyone around me, and everyone in my life I was the perfect guy, with the perfect job, the perfect wife, and the perfect life. The weight on my soul of being such a fraud and being so broken inside was almost too much to bear. I truly feel in my heart that God allowed my life to be devastated to get me to this workshop to free me of my burden and to draw me close to Him. I will never be able to fully describe how lifted my soul feels now.” – Zach
“This group and workshop has brought so much clarity to my addiction. Even though I have been in recovery for 2½ years and spent 2 years in weekly addiction class therapy, this has opened my eyes to things I learned but truly didn’t understand, such as the addictive cycle and the rituals and how easy it was to fall back in after 2 years. There was so much I didn’t see until this workshop.” – Gary
“I would go to this workshop every year if I could. Every man should attend this workshop even if they don’t struggle with sexual addiction.” – Tom
“This battle has consumed my life until this weekend.” – Steve
“My goal was primarily restoration of my marriage. After going through the weekend, I realize now that it’s about restoring my soul.” – Aaron
“I have been living with my secrets for 30 plus years while failing time and again to stop and all the while them getting worse. For the first time, I have learned more about why it is happening, developing an action plan to change, and creating a network of support.” – Brad
“Walking into EMB was difficult, but I knew that in order to get help, I had to open up. That was what I did. I met 8 new family members–8 brothers I never knew I had until Christ brought us together this weekend.” – Jose
“I can say that I was initially shocked at the expense of the workshop and it almost stopped me from coming. Once I realized how much time, effort and money I had spent on my indiscretions, I changed my mind. I am so thankful that I did! In fact, I wish I had been coming twice a year for the last 10 or more years! It has been just that good.” – James
“I now have hope like never before that I can be sexually pure as a single man and that this is an act of worship. The idol of pornography has been an obstruction in my life and now I have hope, even expectation, that this idol will be destroyed.” – James
“I learned that the real problem for me is the shame that causes isolation and damages the intimacy God designed for my marriage. I’ve lived quietly with this struggle for close to 50 years, 37 of them as a believer and there is finally hope for my victory. I thank God for New Life Ministries.” – Martin
“The load I bore for 43 years was never meant for me to bear. Alone, desperate, cold, and abandoned my loving spouse reached out to EMB for help. Because of the safety of my brothers, I let go and told all my darkest secrets. They received me unconditionally and poured life back into my brokenness. Today, I know that I am worthy, forgiven, and victorious in Christ!” – Aaron
“The degree of acceptance and non-judgmental love that I received from the staff as I arrived for this weekend opened the door of receptivity in my soul.” – Stan
“I was fortunate enough to have a family member who had attended EMB. His testimony of the men he met and the community/connection he received is what compelled me to come. I have longed for the opportunity to connect with men who are in this battle.
I leave here convinced of 3 things:
1. My wife is not crazy. I am. 2. I need connection with others if I am to succeed. 3. This is not a “quick fix” but an invitation to walk in holiness for the long haul.” – Dennis
“I was surprised at the power of relationship. How strange is it that you put a bunch of strangers together and eventually they share more than if they were brothers. Obviously you guys know what you are doing. God bless you all!”
