Your Darkest Secrets…

Imagine sharing the deepest part of your soul - online. For all the world to see. And share. Imagine not being able to control people's thoughts of what you share - whether they agreed or disagreed, understood or misunderstood, had pity or compassion. Darkest Secrets and Stories Shared For many of the authors in the Gatekeepers series, the story(ies) they share is a part of their testimony. As in, it has occurred in the past - God has brought them through, up and out of the pit. Their reasons for sharing are varied. For some, they felt alone in their struggles and satan used that, fed that feeling and kept them struggling for far too long. Some share their stories for a living - … [Read more...]

The Gospel Can Speak Through Blogging

Recently I posted on the consequences of pornography (here). In this particular post I shared briefly about an internet accountability site, Covenant Eyes, and linked to their website. Besides this being one of my most viewed/read posts, Covenant Eyes' blog manager saw it and emailed me to ask us to write something for their blog. So we jumped at it - another opportunity to share some of our testimony and hopefully give hope to others?! Absolutely! We are grateful for the avenues the Lord continues to open up for us. It's also exciting to be able to share the power of the Gospel with others even when I can't get out of the house. The Lord is faithful! Here is the article: Accountability … [Read more...]

The average child sees porn for the first time at age 11....The number one consumer of pornography is boys, ages 12-17...Statistically, you're probably too late." (Mark Driscoll, The Peasant Princess) A little shocked? So was I. If 10 … [Read more...]
