How We Finally Won the Battle Against Pornography

How We Finally Won the Battle Against Pornography

**This blog is a snippet from Focus on the Family's post, "How We Finally Won The Battle Against Pornography"


The first time I heard someone talk seriously about pornography was at a college chapel service. In front of the entire student body, a friend confessed his addiction and shared that Jesus had "set him free." I was engaged at the time and thought how glad I was that my future husband didn't struggle with porn.

Nick, my fiance, came from a Christian family. He always led the two of us in prayer and devotions. We were preparing for a life of ministry together. He never pressured me physically. In fact, he waited months to even hold my hand or kiss me.

Not long after that chapel service, we went on a coffee date. Before we even got out of the car, Nick said, "I need to tell you something."

Thank you so much for writing this article, Michelle! I came across the full post on Focus On The Family and had to find a way to contact you. Your story resonates with me so deeply as I also found out while we were engaged and have been on quite the roller coaster since we got married less than two years ago. We reached that turning point a few months ago—only after hitting an all time low where I was seriously contemplating suicide though—and it’s been a lot of hard work since then. I feel a lot like you did, that my husband is making great progress and me, not as much. Rebuilding trust is a steep incline but I’m thankful that God’s grace makes it possible. I would love to chat more with you personally about your experience.

Perhaps this year was great and we want to make next year even better! Maybe we had a challenging year, and this is our year to improve and make a positive change in our life. Either way, this time of year affects us all.
