Owning His Sexuality, Heroically

I’m an eighteen-year-old college student and I’ve just finished reading your books (Every Young Man’s Battle, Tactics, and Hero) for the third time, and I can’t thank you enough for writing them.  I learn something else each time I read through them.  They have been an enormous help in my purity, but especially in my walk with God.  I felt myself being pulled farther from Him each time I would look at porn or masturbate, and it was becoming tougher to stay pure with my girlfriend.  Thankfully, I heard of your book and decided to look it up, that was one of the best decisions I have made in my life… I only wish I could have made it much sooner.

I am happy that nothing ever happened sexually between me and my girlfriend, but I understand how close we came on several occasions.  But I’m even happier to say that I have been porn free for a year and three months and haven’t masturbated in over three months!  I feel great!  I feel like I am finally in control of my sexuality.  It’s much easier to keep the boundaries that my girlfriend and I have set up for us.  My walk with God is stronger everyday!  I am back in my Bible and doing Bible studies all of the time!  It feel’s amazing!  I am currently talking to my old youth pastor about doing a study on Every Young Man’s Battle with the guys in my old youth group.  Thank you! And thank your son and daughter-in-law Jason and Rose for their testimonies!  Hero was an eye opener in so many ways!  It was refreshing to hear everything that they went through to get to their wedding day.  The stand that they took is amazing and really makes me feel bad that I didn’t do something like that sooner.  I don’t know that I can say that every girl that I have been friends with (I’ve only ever had the one girlfriend, going on two years together now) have been better off for knowing me.  I haven’t done anything in a sexual sense with them, but I haven’t really been the hero for them like I should have been, either.  But I am proud to say that’s all changing.  I have made a new covenant to bounce my eyes and keep my mind pure.  I can’t wait till I get married and the adventures that lie ahead!  Thank you again!
