In this special episode of Pure Gold, we honor the life of Dr. Mark Laaser, one of the early pioneers in the field of sexual addiction & recovery. Dr. Laaser passed away early on the morning of September 27, 2019 after a long battle with myeloma cancer. His life & legacy is nothing short of amazing and while I didn't know him personally, I did have the chance to interview him for the podcast in 2014. I share my thoughts of Dr. Laaser as well as the interview I did with him regarding his book, "Taking Every Thought Captive". Mark -- we will miss you, but we thank God for your life and for the thousands of lives your ministry touched on this earth. Friends, enjoy the podcast.

Can a person stop looking at porn but still be an addict? I love this question and have encountered it many times in my work with men throughout the years. One of the purity coaches I most respect is Michael Leahy, founder & CEO of BraveHearts, a faith-based, non-profit ministry, whose mission has been to lead people to freedom from sexual sin and sex addiction through a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Recently, someone asked Michael this question: "Can you define terms you use like slip, minor slip, relapse? If I have been successful in stopping porn use but unsuccessful in stopping acting out behaviors, how do I discern where I am at?" I really loved his answer to the question. It's both helpful and specific but really gets to the heart of the writer's question. Enjoy!

So many guys I talk to wonder why and how they get themselves into the situations they're in. How did that slip occur? What led to that relapse? Without understanding what happened BEFORE the slip or relapse, we'll keep repeating the same mistakes over and over again. It's what leads up to the point of acting out that really matters. In this bonus episode, Frank shares 3 very common triggers that we can't afford to ignore if we want to get healthy in recovery and become the people that God wants us to be. Enjoy the podcast!

Recovery from addiction is a battle fought on many fronts. There is not one key to freedom and healing, but a culmination of little & big decisions that a person must make to get healthy again. It's developing a fierce tenacity and commitment to doing the right thing even if you slip up. But it's also about putting the right practices in place to help you when you're facing a battle. This week on the podcast, we talk about the discipline we must have in recovery & hear from a guest therapist about developing healthy disciplines to guide you along the way. Enjoy the podcast!

My point of brokenness occurred when my wife (fiance at the time) took her engagement ring off and slid it across the table and said: "I won't marry you". It was as if the Lord was saying: "You've nearly destroyed your life, I won't allow you to destroy my daughter's life." Dishonesty is a destroyer of marriage. The moment you stop being honest with your spouse is the moment you have given up on your marriage. This week, Frank shares from his own life what it took to come out of addiction and into freedom. Also, what is temptation really? Should we be worried or concerned when we're tempted?

In this bonus content from Pure Gold, Frank shares a recent message he preached on learning to trust God with life's toughest questions. We all have questions in life that can either lead us towards Jesus or away from Him if we allow them to. The same is true in our recovery journeys. So many men wonder how long it will take them to recover? Why do we struggle? When will I get better? Thankfully, the Word of God helps us gain perspective when we have questions. Frank shares some thoughts from his own journey in this encouraging & challenging message.

Sometimes, the term "recovery" gets a bad rap. Some view it as some kind of impairment or flaw if you're walking in recovery from an addiction. But the reality is that there's MUCH joy that we can celebrate in recovery. This week, Frank encourages listeners to focus on the joys that one can experience as they walk away from the kind of lifestyles that kept us in bondage for years! Through brokenness, self-discovery, and hard work, joy can prevail as we become the men & women God has created us to be. Enjoy the podcast!
