Vision Beyond Recovery
Eli Machen, M.S.W.

Sexual addicts and co-addicts often first seek help when their lives are reeling out of control and their marriages and careers are in jeopardy. The initial stages of recovery focus on achieving sobriety and stability. Long-term recovery, however, requires a new vision for life and relationships. Eli Machen’s inspirational message illustrates how vision makes the difference between long-term success and failure.

Redeeming the Pain
Marnie C. Ferree

The Western novelist Louis L’Amour writes, “There will come a time when you believe that everything is over. That will be the beginning.” Almost all sex addicts are well acquainted with the anguish of those “ending” times, especially the spiritual despair of sexual sin. God is faithful, however, to redeem the pain of those who seek healing – and even to use their brokenness to His purpose and glory. Marnie Ferree shares her story and challenges recovering people to be alert for redemptive encounters with God.
