    Many men struggle deeply with their godly responsibilities of leadership, especially in the home, because they aren’t even managing themselves very well. 
    In this episode, Stephen brings a letter from a leader that is meant to be representative of most men who struggle with this internal conflict of leadership calling and poor self-management. This letter addresses issues like: 
    Dividedness and hypocrisyWearing masks to cover fear and shamePoor or non-existent emotional skillsWeariness and hopelessness
    For any man who can relate to what is shared in this letter, there is hope for transformation. You can become the man and leader God designed you to be.

    Wisdom from a Sage in Recovery Ministry

    Wisdom from a Sage in Recovery Ministry

    Sometimes we don’t have a “topic” for the podcast, but instead simply have a conversation with someone with loads of experience and wisdom in sexual struggles and recovery. This is what today’s episode is all about.
    Our guest is author and speaker, Nate Larkin. He founded the Samson Society, a fellowship of Christian men who are serious about authenticity, community, humility, and recovery. 
    In our conversation, Nate shares his own story of addiction and recovery. Then we dive into lots of questions that draw on his decades of personal and ministerial wisdom that will prove helpful to any man listening who wants to break free from unwanted sexual behaviors. 
    To learn more about Nate and his ministry, visit SamsonSociety.com.

    Living More Than a Love Story

    Living More Than a Love Story

    How important is trust to emotional health and building strong, mature relationships? It is vital! Yet, many men we have served in our ministry struggle terribly with trust. 
    In today’s episode, Stephen and I are going to dig into this important topic of trust through the lens of one man’s story that begins with him not being able to trust his parents with his thoughts and feelings and ends with him finally living a “love plus trust” story. 
    We will share the distinction between love and trust and how love plus trust takes us even deeper than love alone. We need to learn how to understand trust in its multilayered dimensions if we want to enjoy strong, healthy relationships.
    For resources from Stephen to help you grow and mature emotionally, visit DoctorMarriage.org.

    Understanding Human Agency

    Understanding Human Agency

    Albert Bandura was a psychologist who is credited with developing the term “human agency,” which refers to how you act, think, and interact with life.
    In this episode, Stephen and I will unpack the four functions of agency and how they might help us develop better self-awareness and deeper faith and relationships. 
    The 4 functions of agency are: 
    Intentions (or intentionality)Outcomes (or expectations)Self-regulationSelf-reflection
    Agency asks, “Are you paying attention to your own intentions and are you getting better at self-regulating and self-reflecting?’ We hope this conversation will help you understand yourself and others better – and use your agency for good, godly purposes.
    To learn more about Albert Bandura and his research, visit AlbertBandura.com.

They share their own journey of learning the hard way how vital forgiveness is to personal character and health, as well as effective ministry to others.

    New Research on Why Women View Porn

    New Research on Why Women View Porn

    Did you know that 58% of women who struggle with porn were exposed to porn before age 12? Or that 93% of women who struggle with porn never attend a support group? And that 48% of women viewing porn were a victim of sexual abuse?
    Our guest today is Crystal Renaud Day, a coach, author, and speaker – and the founder and executive director of SheRecovery.com. She has been a leading voice for women in this space of sexual integrity ministry since 2009. 
    Recently, Crystal and her ministry conducted research to answer the question “What Drives Women to Porn?” There were over 1300 anonymous female participants, ages 18 to 65+ from 58 countries, who had used or been addicted to pornography in the past or present. 
    This episode discusses the findings of this research and why this is important to women struggling and those who love them. 
    To see the research and results, visit SheRecovery.com.

Love the work of Jonathan Daugherty. He’s a godly, humble man who walks with Jesus and understands so well how to help others find hope and healing for issues related to sexuality. Great podcast!

Gobscott ,

Major help

I have made some heavy mistakes in my life. Thought there was no hope to change. I thought I was defective or a narcissist even. Johnathan and his testimony as well as this podcast has helped me come to Christ and change course in my life. I am saved by grace and now believe there is hope. I am grateful for this ministry and others like it. I can’t donate now but once I have more money I sure will.
