Screen Shot 2018-11-13 at 10.21.29 AM

I just finished my Fortify Webinar test for tomorrow and I am so excited! My interviewer Vinny is what I would call a new Superfan of Life After Lust and it is clear we are going to have a phenomenal conversation tomorrow packed with helpful hacks for recovery. Clay Olsen, a hero of mine who arranged this interview, also dropped by to say hello, which was such an honor. Wow, friends, this is actually happening!

Tools for Battling Fantasy, Lust, & Unwanted Thoughts

Staci Sprout, Quote Clouds Fantasy

Do you struggle with unwanted thoughts? Most of us do. If you want some help in this arena, start with reading the above quote by Staci Sprout. In Life After Lust, I provided many more strategies for battling lust. Which ones help you the most? What other strategies help you modify your thought patterns?

We can be free from the thoughts that tempt us to return to old, addictive, and self-destructive behavior. May we learn to let go of unwanted thoughts, replacing them with those that uplift and inspire us.

A Vision for the Younger Generation

Staci Sprout Protection Quote

Today as I thumbed through my copy of Staci Sprout’s memoir Naked in Public, I came across this amazing quote (above). It fits perfectly with the theme of Life After Lust and is truly a dream worth working towards. May we all do our part to create this reality.
