A little update

Hi, I just thought I would post an update. It has been a month since I first talked to my Bishop and my wife about everything.

I am still working hard and doing good. I am currently on the longest porn free streak that I can remember having...ever. And it feels good.
It is still very much a struggle and some days are harder than others.
My wife has been amazing! She has had a hard time with it all but overall is so supportive and tries to be so understanding! I love her so much for that!

I am still meeting with my Bishop and I started meeting with a professional counselor, who I think will have some good insight into how to heal from all of this, aside from the spiritual healing that only Christ can give.

I couldn't have asked for things to have gone better, considering all of my issues. I know I still have a looooong road to go, but I am grateful I am on it now.

This type of life beats the heck out of living with guilt and filthy secrets.


"Keep up the good work. Please don't decide to test the graciousness of your wife, if you can possibly help it. Tell yourself she will leave if you mess up again, if that kind of threat works for you. Don't go near the temptations! Keep reminding yourself what a wonderful wife you have."

"Nothing is beyond [Christ’s] redeeming reach or His encircling empathy. Therefore, we should not complain about our own life’s not being a rose garden when we remember who wore the crown of thorns! Having bled at every pore, how red His raiment must have been in Gethsemane, how crimson that cloak! No wonder, when Christ comes in power and glory, that He will come in reminding red attire, signifying not only the winepress of wrath, but also to bring to our remembrance how He suffered for each of us in Gethsemane and on Calvary!"
