Pastor's Wife Shares How Porn Impacts Her Church

It's been over five years since we initially launched the Conquer Series to help men find freedom. The impact has been huge. Created for men, this series has been helping hundreds of thousands understand why they've remained trapped in sexual sin for a long time and has been providing them with the biblical principles and strategies to completely leave that life behind.

Though KingdomWorks Studios originally created the Conquer Series for men, there is an entirely different group of people who are finding hope, encouragement and a sense of freedom while watching this powerful series. The Conquer Series is becoming a game changer for men and their wives.

One woman recently wrote to us:

I am a pastor's wife and mother of four children. Over the years, I have had the opportunity in joining my husband while doing marriage counseling. When the Lord moved us to North Carolina, I no longer had the thought of, I wonder if anyone in our church struggles with pornography? Instead, my thinking was, I wonder how many men are struggling ... and who are they?

As my husband began working with one young married couple, my heart was truly broken for the two. Their story was devastating but yet, I honestly struggled with loving this man. I didn't understand why he didn't just stop looking at the garbage.

Around this time, I received an email from the AFA recommending the Conquer Series to help stop pornography addiction. Once it arrived, the two of us would watch the DVDs at night after our children had gone to bed. After watching several, my husband approached the young man from our church, and told him about the program and asked him if he would be interested. Was he ever! They began meeting once a week.

After watching the sessions where they explained exactly what happens to the brain after watching porn, my eyes were truly opened. These men could not just make a decision to "stop" and then be done. They truly had to rewire their thinking/brains through the help of the Holy Spirit. It was then that I realized I could ... and should love these men who were struggling. I told my husband how the series was helping me and that I felt that he should consider bringing the men's wives in with them for the series explaining the brain effects of porn. He took my advice and it was helpful to this couple.

I wholeheartedly recommend this series to the women as well.

My husband also plans to use these DVDs as a one-on-one Bible Study with our boys. If they can see the devastation before they are exposed and gripped by the garbage, we will see victory in their lives as well.

Healing for Women

We had the opportunity to meet with a woman named Nancy Houston, who was previously over the Crisis Marriages department in a large church. Upon hearing of the Conquer Series, she introduced it to the church. Not only did she show it to men, but she also decided to share the series with the wives as well. The results were astounding!

Women devastated by their husband's addiction often find themselves feeling, "There must be something wrong with me."

Nancy reflected on how the Conquer Series helped women deal with this feeling:

It's not my fault; he has a brain problem. Oh, I can partner with him on his brain problem. I can stop being so angry with him and just wanting to hurt him for how he's hurt me!

Currently we are working on a new DVD series. It will be for the wives who are recovering from the trauma of their spouse's sexual addiction. You can sign up for updates on the new series here.

In the meantime, women are using the Conquer Series to bring healing to their marriages. Some churches are even offering it as a separate group for the wives to understand the struggle that the men are facing and begin to demolish the fears that as a wife, you're not enough.

With our 14-day money-back guarantee on the Conquer Series DVD sets, there is nothing to lose!

Order your copy of the series today, and join the women who are beginning to see the light at the end of a very dark tunnel.
