A weekly podcast helping you take back your life from the effects of unwanted sexual behavior and betrayal trauma.
324 - Help! I’m In A Sexless Marriage.
When your spouse doesn’t want to have sex, you likely feel alone and lost. When you’re the one who is uninterested in sex, you may not even understand why. However, in a healthy marriage where addiction and betrayal aren’t present, sex is a beautiful gift. This episode with Heather Kolb gets into the challenging questions about how, when, and why people may be living in a sexless marriage and what they can do about it.
323 - Myth Busters: I Can Do This Alone
It’s common for people to think they can recover from their addiction or stop their behaviors on their own. Unfortunately, that just isn’t how recovery works. Community is a necessity for lasting healing and freedom. Harry Flanagan joins us today to debunk this myth and provide a path for those struggling with this harmful belief.
322 - Recovery & Healing From The Heart
In this episode, we talked about the theme of the Pure Desire Summit 2023, From The Heart. Why we chose this theme, its importance to the recovery journey, why people should attend, and more. We hope you’re planning to join us online or in-person for our biggest event of the year!
321 - The Toxic War On Masculinity w/ Nancy Pearcey
If you ask 1000 people what it means to be masculine, you’ll likely get 1000 different answers. Masculinity is often associated with strength, anger, and dominance. But that’s not at all how Jesus modeled masculinity. Nancy Pearcey is back with us to discuss differences between toxic masculinity and biblical masculinity and compare James Bond with Jesus.
320 - Growing Our Emotional Intelligence
Emotional awareness and emotional intelligence go hand-in-hand. But emotional intelligence can feel elusive. In today’s episode, Heather Kolb helps us understand how to grow in emotional intelligence and its importance in the recovery process.
319 - Talking With Your Young Kids About Sex
Many parents have a genuine desire to teach their kids how to navigate their sexuality in a way that is more helpful than they were taught. But most parents don’t even know where or how to begin talking with their kids about sex. This episode with Rodney and Traci Wright is packed with practical examples and advice, resources to protect kids and grow personally, and the encouragement parents have been looking for.
A Gift from God
A friend of mine recommended me this podcast, and I can say with total confidence that it’s one of the biggest reasons I’m so hopeful in my journey of healing today. I’ve been needing something so grounded in scripture but also aware that there’s an a physical side to my problems as well. And the Pure Desire Podcast was an answer to prayer!
