Facing it Like a Boss

I recently came across a blog post by a Gal who really inspired me. She is facing Bipolar Disorder, and learning to fly above the waves. Certainly, the pitfalls and strategies for Bipolar are much different than for Pedophilia. But perspective and attitude count for a whole lot. Kelsey shares some practical advice about self care, but weaved throughout is … Read more

The Hope Set Before Us

Pedophilia is a daily struggle. There are always feelings that go in the wrong direction, and you’re faced with the choice of where you let your mind go. The decision to honor God with your sexuality is a daily victory. Daily victories are good, because together, they equal a lifetime of victory. However, it’s easy to get weary in the … Read more

A Letter From a Survivor

This letter was originally posted in our Discussion area. Thank you K. K – I am a survivor of child molestation.

At the back of my … Read more

He Fell For a Boy

I was recently talking with a friend of mine, who is also a pedophile. We were discussing how awful it is to fall in love with a child, only to recognize that it can’t lead anywhere good. That happened to him as a counselor at summer camp. He fell for a boy. Nothing inappropriate transpired. No one would have known … Read more

Our Reason: Sexuality “Holy” to God

Sexuality has always been a defining issue in society. Just think about the difference between the swimsuit edition of Sports Illustrated and the Hijab worn by Muslim women.

What Does God Think About Me?

Be still and quiet for a moment, and ask yourself, “What does God think about me?” Maybe your stomach gets knotted up. You imagine that God must surely disapprove of you, and has all sorts of judgments against you. It’s discouraging. You already dislike yourself, and so it’s better not to think about God. I know the feeling. Have you … Read more

Two Ways to Grieve, One Way to Freedom

What do you do when you do something bad? How do you feel? Most people experience a deep sense of grief, a loss of failed expectation, self-disappointment, and with it a certain lowering of self-worth. It only follows then that those who do bad things have less value than people who don’t. This is one form of grief. However in … Read more

Piggyback Rides with Jesus on My High Places

The other day I was talking with a friend who struggles with a gambling addiction. He said, “I’m doing ok now, but I can’t promise that I won’t ever gamble again. I’d just be lying to myself.” That really got me thinking. Can we ever really be free of our struggles? At our best, are we just putting off our … Read more

“A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.” – Prov. 22:3 NLT There is a hydroelectric dam down by the river where I live, and it’s so interesting to walk the footpath along the riverbank.

Afflictions of the Righteous

Psalm 34:19 – “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.” This verse gives us such comfort and promise, and is full of meaning. It seems that every Christian pedophile I’ve talked to believes that God is mad at them simply because they are attracted to minors. Not true! Remember what Psalm 22:24 … Read more

Evil Present with Me

There are many times I’ve been discouraged in my day to day journey. Just when I’m excited with how far I’ve come or how well I’m doing, suddenly I’m brought to my knees.

Is God Still God if People are “Born” with Atypical Sexual Attraction?

Pedophiles are people who have a sexual attraction to minors. Can this be changed through treatment or therapy? It’s becoming more accepted that a person’s sexual attraction is a result of their brain’s wiring, and is influenced by their life experiences. It seems evident that a person doesn’t choose their sexual make-up; they simply experience it and decide how they’ll … Read more

We’re not just following some force of nature, karma, or rules to live by. There’s actually someone there. What is God … Read more
