Traylor and Melody are joined by Michael Leahy, the founder and CEO of BraveHearts, to discuss sexual addiction recovery, the transforming power of grace, and Michael’s upcoming virtual summit called the Breaking Free Sexual Integrity Summit.
Michael grew up in a Christian home with all the markings of a “normal” childhood. After moving from LA to Spokane, Washington he began to feel like an outsider and was bullied. Michael looks back at the exact moment he was introduced to pornography on the playground at 11 years old. Once he had seen pornography and began to keep it a secret with the other boys, the bullying stopped.This led to Michael viewing sex as acceptance and porn gave him a semblance of manliness. He reflects on how this early exposure eventually led to the addiction in his adult life that eventually cost him his marriage.
Michael is the founder and CEO of BraveHearts, a faith-based, mentoring-centric ministry that’s been helping Christian men build and maintain lives of sexual integrity so they don’t continue to suffer with compulsive sexual behavior. He has written 5 books on the subject and has shared his story of redemption in hundreds of churches, colleges, and conferences. Michael is committed to helping those break free from the brokenness of sexual addiction.
BraveHearts is hosting a 10 day online virtual summit called Breaking Free Summit that starts Sunday, December 10th. The Summit will contain interviews and stories from over 45 leading experts on the subject of pornography, sexual addiction, and Christ-centered recovery. All the materials are free for the first 48 hours and after afterwards all content will be available through an all-access pass. Any money raised goes to BraveHearts and other organizations involved in the Summit, including Undone Redone. The Summit will run from December 10-19 and you can sign-up for FREE at the Breaking Free Sexual Integrity Summit page.
