INTRODUCTION: A ROADMAP FOR THE NEXT 30 DAYS
Welcome to the Freedom Experience! You have taken a critical step forward in your journey toward breaking free from pornography and stepping into a more free, more full life, and for that, you should be excited!
The next 30 days will be a powerful journey for you in your quest for freedom. It will require a commitment to daily growth, but if you put in the work, you will have taken significant and meaningful steps toward freedom by the end of this experience. To get the most out of this experience, we recommend you take the following steps.
- Get a blank journal or notebook. You will need this in order to complete the daily exercises and journaling work. This work is critical to rewiring your brain to think about porn and freedom differently. It is best done in a format that will allow you to go back over what you have written on previous days so you can reinforce the hard work you are putting in each day.
- Read the Porn Proof guide and take recommended steps to protect yourself. The Porn Proof guide is designed to help you get control of your device use and close any open doors to temptation you may have in your life. This cannot be stated strongly enough—these steps are critical in your recovery journey. Until your mind is renewed to the point where you no longer desire pornography (and even after that point to some degree), it is vitally important to protect yourself from relapse into porn. This means getting very honest with yourself about your vulnerabilities and taking the necessary steps to cut off temptation while you work out inner-transformation and healing. You can access the Porn Proof guide anytime using this link.
- Establish an ally in your freedom journey. Your ally should be a friend or mentor who is mature in their faith and does not struggle with pornography. This person will support you in your freedom journey. Whether this is a small group leader, pastor, or a good friend, this should be someone who will give you feedback on the inner work you are doing throughout this 30-day journey (and beyond), provide wise counsel where needed, and who will be committed to helping you step into the life God has for you. Shame and bondage happen in isolation. Freedom and healing come in the context of relationship. You will get the most out of this experience if you regularly process what you are going through with a supportive ally. You can even share the zoom links for the sessions with them if you want them to walk through this whole experience with you.
Each morning we will send you the link to the daily freedom work straight to your email. There is no need to create any special account or login. You will want to budget around 30 minutes each day to complete the daily readings and exercises. While this may seem like a lot, this concentrated effort will allow you to take significant steps toward freedom in a short amount of time. The end result will be more than worth it!
That’s all for now.
We are thrilled you are taking this journey with us and can’t wait to hear how God uses it in your life!
