I am often asked why I don’t associate with my birth mother, my brother, and two of my half-brothers. The conversations all start with, “How is your…?” To which I reply, “I’m not really sure, I haven’t seen them or talked to them in years”. Then I am asked “Why?” To keep it simple, I just say that we took different paths in life, which sums it up in a nutshell, but that never seems to be an acceptable answer, because as soon as it’s said, the interrogation begins. At this point, I usually just say that the house I grew up in was abusive so I walked away, so I wouldn’t become a product of that environment. I am then told, in so many words, that it’s sinful and wrong that I’ve cut off ties with my family; that it doesn’t matter that they were or are abusive to me, the proper thing to do is be patient and tolerant of their sins.

The TRUTH… Would you rather have people be brutally honest with you, or would you rather have people “beat around the bush” and sugarcoat things when you’re asking for their advice??? I totally believe that shooting people straight is the greatest form of respect there is but not everyone agrees. Check out “Truth Be Told” on the Coffee & Christ Show.

Pornography is not just a sexual addiction.. it’s an addiction of the mind. It starts out small and grows bigger & bigger, feeding on the need for power and control. It distorts views of women/men and causes conflict and division in relationships.
If you are struggling with this & looking for a way out, you MUST watch this new episode of Coffee & Christ, featuring Steven Sawyer- “Life Exposed To & Hooked on Pornography”. Listen to his story about how he got sucked into it… and how he was pulled out of it. You don’t want to miss it!!!
