Excited...

I'm excited today... about the idea of chasing after a woman... THE RIGHT WAY.... God's way.

For me.. porn, women, relationships, masculinity,etc... was all such a mystery to me... (abuse, culture, poor models, hollywood, etc... ) Lately, as I continue to gain more light... I've been so excited about realizing how God truly pursues his BRIDE (the church).

I'm right in the middle of studying how the Priesthood (gentleness, meekness, patience, love unfeigned) is the model that God uses to really love... and that as a man... its not just enough to get SOBER...and go off trying to live like everyone else in the world... but I need (and want) to go the extra mile... and pursue the heart of the woman the way that God would have me... in similitude of how God has chased after me for all these years.

I used to think it was unfair... that I symbolically had to walk into additional emotional waves...(weren't women supposed to be perfect princesses I had always idealized them to be?) additional light that has come into my life... has revealed to me that women are not perfect... (feel free to laugh here that it's such a realization to me) and that many of them never wanted that projection...

so, I am finding that once I have grasped the hand of God (and I have) and I know I will never lose that connection... I have the confidence to extend my hand... to a woman... and be willing to not only fight my own spiritual battles... but to also fight to protect her and her heart from the spiritual warfare that satan seeks to inflict on her as well.


just bought this... guide... and will blog about it when I get it.

That is really cool

Thankful Graceful!    
"You made me smile today!

The Helping Her Heal DVD is an amazing tool not only for the addict but it is so validating for the spouse.

I am so glad you have that correlation of the church being the Bride of Christ. Yes, He is our examplar and He laid it all out right there in the scriptures as always.

Keep up the good works and posts!"

Info: Helping Her Heal    
"I did a search for that on here, and it seems it's something that can get fires burning. But, it did seem pretty good. The only thing I got confused by from the reviews is the whole thing about:
2. Be Quiet
3. Don't defend yourself

What does the video truly say about being quiet and don't defend yourself? I want my husband to cherish the days and weeks to come that he is sober, and share that with me. I want to be there for him. I'm guessing the don't defend yourself means to not defend the reasoning behind your addiction's slip ups???

Also, do I need to get a separate thing about the sexual anorexia? How do we know if we'd most likely benefit from it?

Oh, and I saw it went on sale in December 2010, does it go on sale often??? We very very limited funds."

"(Sorry to high-jack your thread above) ;0)

I think it's amazing that a SA can get to a place where they see women in a totally spiritual way. That totally comes off as rude, but right now, it's hard for me to see that that can happen for my husband. So, you (and others here) give me hope."

That cd changed or lives    
"Bought out on sale because do many were taking about it here.

It changed or lives forever... God bless dr. weiss

I wish the leadership in the church would expect the brothers to step up the way dr weiss asks them to. It would have saved us many years of pain and destruction.

I you are looking for a slap on the hand and sympathy for your addictiond, don't but this dvd. If you want to help your wife heal, it would be worth many more times the cost."
