In the moment, porn feels safe and feels good. It creates a world where anything is possible. Any fantasy. Any life. Any relationship. In this fantasy world, we can be whoever we want to be. It’s the great escape from our reality.

The problem is, the more we try to escape our reality and the pain of our lives, the more we become trapped by our behaviors. Our feelings of not being enough, feeling alone, and being isolated create the chains that hold us captive.

But here is what’s true: YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

Pure Desire Ministries offers hope to men and women struggling with sexually compulsive and addictive behaviors.

Through a small group approach, we:

  • offer insight into the brain science behind addictive behaviors.
  • present a biblical foundation of God’s design for our sexuality.
  • provide the essential tools for walking out sexual health in our daily lives.

Living in reality requires risk. If we want to live an authentic, sexually healthy life, it will require honesty and vulnerability. We will need others—a safe community where we will learn about ourselves, change the way we view ourselves and others, and grow in our relationship with God and others.

We can’t let porn hold us back from becoming all we were meant to be. Learn to live with authentic purpose. Learn to live life porn-free.

Your life is better without porn.

Unraveled: Managing Love, Sex, and Relationships

We all want to experience genuine relationship—to feel loved and accepted for who we are. We give and give in relationship only to be left feeling disappointed and alone. Our negative sexual experiences and mistakes from our past hold us hostage, keeping us stuck in unhealthy relationship patterns. Is there any hope?

Intended for group use, Unraveled: Managing Love, Sex, and Relationships guides women through the process of healing—exploring how our past pain and trauma, family of origin, and life circumstances shape how we behave in relationships.

Through the use of personal stories, strategic tools and exercises, and weekly self-care lessons, Unraveled will become our guide. We will discover the core of our distorted beliefs, address the shame that drives our behaviors, and write a new ending to our story, crafted with hope and purpose.

Seven Pillars of Freedom

Designed for group use, the Seven Pillars of Freedom Workbook raises awareness of the self-delusion and denial found among many men who struggle with sex and pornography addiction. Gaining a greater understanding of the addiction process and sexually compulsive patterns, this group experience will provide the safety, support, and tools needed to establish lifelong healing.

The Seven Pillars of Freedom Journal is a companion resource that reinforces the daily commitment to health through several foundational tools:

  • The Commitment to Change identifies challenges or needed change and accountability for change
  • The SWORD Drill strengths our healing through God’s Word
  • The FASTER Scale raises awareness of the behaviors that lead to relapse
  • The Group Check-In provides weekly self-reflection while moving toward health
