This episode is a special bonus. Our guest is Matt Riley, the development director of our ministry. Matt will share his story of sexual brokenness and addiction and the recovery road he has traveled.

Story is a core value of our ministry. It matters to know that others have experienced some of the feelings and challenges we too have faced.

8 Comments from Men Struggling to Pursue Integrity

8 Comments from Men Struggling to Pursue Integrity

May 17, 2022

In today’s episode, Stephen and I share multiple comments from men who are on the journey to pursue greater integrity. Some of these comments are:

  • “I know what’s wrong with me – it’s me!”
  • “I’m 75 years old and no one wants to go to lunch with me.”
  • “All my life I’ve hidden behind God and spiritual truths, but I’m not emotionally mature.”
  • “There is pain in recovery. It feels like hope and it sucks at the same time.”
  • “Why do I have to change? I don’t want to.”
  • “Growing up, no one was there for me. So now, how can I show up for anyone?”

 

Our hope in sharing these comments and the insights behind them is to help men better understand their own integrity journey and hopefully get some ideas for how to take their best next step. If you would like resources that help men grow in purity and faith, visit Men.Bebroken.com.

The Heart Cry of an Old Saint: I Want to Be Clean!

April 19, 2022

In today’s episode, Stephen brings some wisdom to us from a man who has been on a journey of sexual wholeness for a while. What can we learn from an older saint in the faith? What is the value of pursuing faithfulness and continuing to fight for purity and holiness over a lifetime?

Understanding the Visual Nature of Men

Understanding the Visual Nature of Men

April 5, 2022

In today’s episode, we unpack the visual nature of men. Like it or not, believe it or not, there are differences between males and females. Male brains are physically different from female brains. But this isn’t a science program. We want to focus on just one primary difference: men are hardwired with more capacity for visual processing than women.

But what does this mean and what are we to do about it? Listen in as we unpack how to understand the visual nature of men and how men can steward this reality in a God-honoring way. 

Much of this conversation was born out of Shaunti Feldhahn’s book, Through a Man’s Eyes. You can get her book on Amazon.com or any other book distributor.
