Recovery Happens Best

...when you're all in.

When you first started this healing process, you likely thought, “Give me the book, show me how to use the tools, and I’ll be healed in no time!” And like many others, you soon realized that this process was more in-depth and would take longer than you initially planned.

Like you, men and women from all walks of life have entered this process motivated by hope: the hope of living free from the effects of sexual brokenness. It’s this same hope that inspires resiliency, persevering through obstacles and setbacks, keeping you steadfast on your journey.

Commitment is key to recovery and healing. It takes time and intention. This is a journey that will require more of you—and return more to you—than you ever expected. When you make a commitment and bring your whole self into the healing process, God will do an amazing work in your life!

For more than 30 years, Pure Desire has helped men and women around the world break free from sexual brokenness, heal the trauma of betrayal, and live a life beyond their expectations.

Motives Matter

Availability: In-person Host Site Livestream Replay

When it comes to recovery, our motives play a huge role in either bringing us more life, or draining it away. Healing and recovery can be hard work, and so we must have a crystal clear focus on our “why.” If we lose track of this, recovery can quickly become just another humanistic self-help routine. But as we come to a deeper understanding of who we are in Christ and His heart for us, we gain the motivation we need to be ALL IN.

Learn how to incorporate a healthy view of God and faith into the recovery process. Escape from “trying harder,” performance-based living and rest instead in the all-encompassing Love of God!

Just as Christ revolutionized how we know God, we need to bring this revolutionary approach into recovery. Changed behavior is an outcome of relationship, not a prerequisite for it.

When Failure Sets Us Free

Availability: In-person Host Site Livestream Replay

Too many people go through recovery attempting to quarantine behavior rather than seeing their brokenness as a roadmap to reclaiming desire. Understanding it is not a barrier, but a bridge to knowing the heart of God.

Jay’s session will explore the neurobiology of shame, how to outgrow unwanted behaviors, and what it means to desire again.

The stories of your deepest shame are not a barrier, but a bridge to going ALL IN on the life you desire.

Embracing a Metamorphic Life

Availability: In-person Host Site Livestream Replay

Faith and recovery require us to examine how we see the world. Because of this, deconstruction and reconstruction are an inherent part of the healing process.

Join Robert as he invites you into a healthy, organic, thought process that has historically been viewed as unhealthy or even taboo.

You will learn how faith and recovery are interwoven, that deconstruction is a healthy response to a new paradigm, and reconstruction is about our unique identity in the context of relationship.

Why God Cares About Your Sex Life

Availability: In-person Host Site Livestream Replay

Most people have a difficult time combining the words “God” and “sex” in the same sentence. Yet, God created us as sexual people and cares deeply about our wounds, sexual shame, and sexual choices. Do you want to understand why?

Join Juli as she addresses the “why” behind God’s heart for sexual healing and redemption.

This session will help you identify your “sexual narrative” and will give a deeper understanding of the biblical narrative of sexuality and sexual wholeness.

Pursuing Sexual Integrity (Not Simply Purity)

Availability: In-person Host Site Livestream Replay

There is a lot of backlash toward “purity culture” today. Perhaps a better way to understand a godly pursuit of sexuality is the concept of sexual integrity.

Integrity goes far deeper than our behaviors and gets to the heart of what matters most to us.

In this session, Juli will address aspects of sexual integrity including the link to identity, stewarding sexual desires, and addressing your wounds and shame.

ALL IN: When We Need Healing AND Recovery

Availability: In-person Host Site Livestream Replay

Recovering from addiction and healing from betrayal is complex and sometimes overlapping.

Join Ashley as she shares her experience of navigating her husband’s betrayal while struggling with her own addictions. You will learn practical strategies and tools to help you engage in healing and recovery simultaneously.

Your betrayal is not less painful or important because you have your own struggles, too. You're worth going ALL IN for—you can experience freedom from betrayal and addiction.

Don’t allow fear and shame to keep you from living the life God has for you.

Living An All In Marriage: Integrating Our Stories

When Being ALL IN Makes You Want to Get Out: Sustaining Leadership When You Feel Burnt Out

Availability: In-person Host Site Livestream Replay

What does it mean to be ALL IN? Today, so many church leaders are experiencing burn out. Could it be that we are operating on a faulty premise of what it means to be ALL IN? Life is difficult, challenging, and at times, overwhelming. But Jesus said, “His yoke is easy and his burden is light.”

If being ALL IN for the cause of Christ leads us to burn out, maybe we’re going about it the wrong way.

This session will present a paradigm shift in what it means to follow Jesus and be ALL IN. You will learn it’s okay to let go of things that aren’t working, how to embrace our humanity as Jesus did His, and find enjoyment in leading yourself and others well.

Bring your questions and join the conversation.

Staying ALL IN After Year One

Availability: In-person Host Site Livestream Replay

How do we stay engaged and committed after the first year of recovery? It's easy to get sloppy or lazy after we've experienced some healing. So how do we maintain momentum once the crisis and difficulty dies down?

Recovery and healing has many chapters which require different approaches. This session will challenge you to stop focusing on avoiding behaviors and develop healthy habits you can do in place of your old unwanted behaviors.

When it comes to recovery and healing, you have to be ALL IN for the long haul.

Managing Life's Transitions

Availability: In-person Replay

Transitions in life are sometimes exciting, but most are difficult because they require risk and an adventure into the unknown. This is especially true for those who have chosen to embark on a healing journey through Pure Desire.

In this session, we will look at the problems and possibilities that occur in most life-changing experiences and how to best manage the transitions we all face. You will come away with “How Tos” in making the most of change as you navigate transitions.

Going ALL IN on My Recovery: Women Struggle, Too!

Availability: In-person Host Site Livestream Replay

Although it was once thought as only a man’s issue, today it is well recognized that women also struggle with unwanted sexual behaviors. But in this arena, what makes women’s behaviors unique?

Join Heather and Anna as they discuss common characteristics among women who struggle, the factors that drive their unwanted behaviors, and practical solutions for recovery.

Understanding the multifaceted aspects of sexual brokenness and what this looks like for women who struggle is key to going ALL IN on recovery and experiencing healing.

The Four Pillars of Sexual Love

Availability: In-person Host Site Livestream Replay

The Bible tells us that marriage, including the sexual union between a husband and wife, reflects God’s love for His covenant people. This sounds spiritual but may not seem practically helpful.

Join Juli Slattery as she shares four specific elements of God’s love that paint the picture for what it looks like to honor God and each other in your sexual relationship.

Staying ALL IN With Your Adult Children

Availability: In-person Replay

We want to be there for our kids into adulthood but it's not always easy. Whether our adult children are going through addiction and betrayal trauma or we are in the midst of it ourselves, we need to understand how to handle this relationship.

How do we support our adult children while not being overbearing? How do we disclose our addiction to our adult children and navigate through recovery and healing together? As family of origin issues begin to emerge, how do we look at these with an open mind?

Walking through these situations can be extremely difficult but can also create a tremendous break-through if done well. It's not too late to deepen your relationship with your adult children and address the threat addiction brought to your family.

Join Bill & Eileen as they talk through these very real and common challenges many of us face today.

Past Summit attendees have said:

Great conference and I loved the online experience. You did a great job by having that available to everyone. I originally signed up to attend in person, but at the last minute I had some family needs that came up and I ended up attending online without even skipping a beat. I hope to attend in person next year!

It’s been amazing and so helpful!!

The entire line up and topic list was stellar. I invited two struggling couples to watch with my wife and I, and hearing so much validation about betrayal trauma was exactly what all four of them needed to hear. I know they are moving forward in their healing with a better understanding of the wounds they each carry.

The sessions were each so captivating that the time flew by!

Thank you so much to all the speakers who did a tremendous job restating the questions for those of us online. The whole summit was amazing. Thank you!

This was overall a fantastic experience.

We were so thankful to meet in person. Really enjoyed the whole summit. It was a nice touch to have the snacks in between to keep us going. Thank you for everything!
