A weekly podcast helping you find hope and healing on the journey to sexual integrity and wholeness.
Episode 201 - What If My Struggling Spouse Doesn't Want Healing?
For a marriage to truly heal from sexual addiction and betrayal trauma, both spouses need healing. We refer to it as a “family systems issue.” But what if our struggling spouse doesn’t want to pursue healing? Should we continue on our own healing journey? Can we help them? Should we even try to? We talk about this very difficult and very common situation on today’s episode.
Episode 200 - Favorites, Feedback, and the Future
We made it to 200 episodes! Honestly, it’s because you guys, our listeners! We would not continue recording these episodes if they weren’t helpful and encouraging on the journey to healing and freedom. To celebrate our 200th episode, we decided to mix it up. We’re looking at some of our favorites, some feedback, and what we have coming in the future. Please celebrate with us and tell us your favorite episode!

Episode 199 - Help! My Group Member Keeps Relapsing
The recovery process oftentimes includes relapse. This is part of the journey of breaking free from sexual brokenness. But what if we have a group member who continues to relapse over and over again? How do we handle this? How do we encourage them? Do we kick them out of group? We answer all of these questions and more on today's episode!
Episode 198 - Healing Your Inner Child w/ Drew Boa
Trauma and woundedness enter our lives early. The ways in which a little kid is hurt tend to show up much later in life through unwanted behaviors and emotional numbness. We often don’t view our struggles this way. But that’s why we had Drew Boa (founder of Husband Material Academy) back on the show to discuss our inner child. We talk about how to offer healing to our inner child and what the process entails.
Episode 197 - Accountability vs. Recovery Groups
Both accountability and recovery groups are important! But they are different. And the difference is important. For example: traditional accountability groups put responsibility on the group itself; where recovery groups put the responsibility on the individual. We discuss this difference and four others on today’s episode.
Episode 196 - Porn As A Pacifier w/ Drew Boa
Because of the wounds, trauma, and struggles in life, we often run to easy things to medicate our pain. Pornography is a great soother but ultimately leads to the destruction of life and relationships. On today’s podcast, we sat down with the founder of Husband Material Academy, Drew Boa, and talked about how porn is used as a pacifier in our lives and what it looks like to soothe ourselves in healthy ways.
This has been very helpful to have a podcast from PureDesire to go along with being in a group.
Keep up the important work of healing & restoration.
Been listening to Trevor, Nick & the entire staff of Pure Desire for a few years now. It’s through this Ministry that God brought me out of sexual addiction. Sexual Healing is possible.
The best help. Thank you.
Thank you for your openness, honesty and the great help that you bring. It has given me hope and the desire to pursue healing and hang in there no matter how long it takes.
