Why do parents avoid talking to their kids about sex? John Fort says it comes down to four primary reasons:

  1. It will strain my relationship with my kid.
  2. I might ruin my child’s innocence.
  3. My kid will find out about my past.
  4. It will be too much work.

John shares resources and insights to help us navigate these fears and use our mistakes and sexual brokenness to build a bridge with our children. What we can view as a barrier is ac...

Unfortunately, we were taught, “if you just have consistent sex, he  won’t desire or use pornography.” But if that were the case, we wouldn’t be here today leading Restored 2 More Inc.  We know first-hand how painful it is to act on a perspective that isn’t rooted in truth or that comes from a loving but uneducated person. 

In this episode, Clinton gets super raw and real about how he struggled after we were sexually intim...

One day Clinton looked depressed after his therapy appointment. He was sad and had a distant look in his eyes. I asked him what was wrong, and his response made me feel confused, disturbed, and disgusted. His answer created a pit in my stomach, but something inside told me to ask questions and be curious instead of condemning and criticizing him. 

“I miss pornography,” he said.  “I’m grieving the relationship I’ve had with porn and ...

If you're like Charity, perhaps you've been angry that you now need to omit secular tv shows and movies that have content that could trigger your spouses. For a time, she asked,  "why do we have to suffer and miss out on the fun of the latest TV binge-worthy series?"  Today we talk about what we choose to watch and why and the difference between everything being lawful but not everything being helpful.

What is a trigger? What can I do when I am triggered? How can I support my spouse when they are triggered?

Today we discuss triggers and how healthily handling them can lead to restoration. At the beginning of our healing process, triggers overwhelmed us and sent us spiraling and fighting, leaving us confused and disconnected. We found that we can react four different ways to triggers: suppress them, medicate them, unhealthily let t...

If fear is not displaced by grace, it will ultimately ruin our lives. Before anything else, grace is relational, meaning we have to experience grace to understand it.
