One of the greatest questions that many men who are entrapped in a sexual addiction or just coming out of sexual addiction have asked me is: “How do I talk to my wife about this stuff?” It’s a really awkward, embarrassing subject full of shame and guilty feelings.
In this episode, I talk about 5 ingredients for healthy conversations with our spouses about sexual addiction. Healthy communication is possible. But we must first allow others into our world to see us for who we really are.
WE MADE IT TO 100!! This week, I talk with my wife, Tracey Honess, about the pain that she as my spouse walked through as I struggled with a pornography addiction which greatly inhabited the first year of our marriage. Tracey shares her feelings about our story and where God has brought her as well as gives some great advice to wives who are hurting from their husband’s sex addiction. This is one you don’t want to miss!
As a follow-up podcast to a recent blog post from Covenant Eyes centering on the topic of masturbation, I wanted to share some thoughts and extra commentary on how we as men can beat (pardon the pun) this incredibly addictive habit. What are the 3 areas we must understand about ourselves before we’re truly able to find freedom from masturbation? Thanks to Covenant Eyes and Luke Gilkerson for writing this article that I’m read this week on the Pure Life Podcast.
As a follow-up to this past week’s blog post entitled “Keeping the ‘Eye of the Tiger’ in Recovery”, I wanted to talk a little more in depth on what it means to keep the edge in your recovery journey – to not allow comfort or complacency to creep in and steal the momentum you’ve gained since coming clean of your sexual addiction. Becoming a man or woman of sexual purity takes work and a constant commitment to do our best each and every day!
This week on this “mini” podcast, Frank talks about the damaging effects that pride can have in the life of a recovering sex addict. Until we learn to become broken and walk in humility, we’ll never experience genuine healing in our recovery journeys. Do you struggle with pride in life? Please take 6 minutes out of your day to listen to this conversation about admitting when you’re wrong.
