SCHEDULE FREE CALL
When my ministry first suggested that I contact Arthur for help, I was skeptical and resistant to the idea. Sexual sin is difficult to talk about and trying to form a relationship with someone from Kansas while I live in Pennsylvania did not seem practical.
But over time, my doubts were alleviated. It is true, sexual sin is difficult to talk about, but it is necessary to find freedom. And I discovered that it was easy to form a relationship with someone across the country. Arthur uses several computer applications that helped make our sessions productive. One is the ZOOM platform that allowed us to make weekly video calls. A second is a program called CoachAccountable. This application allowed me to schedule appointments, complete homework assignments, track progress and Journal my thoughts and feelings. I am not adept at technology, but I found both easy to use. This is truly a positive use of technology.
In addition to the Bible and prayer, Arthur also uses several educational resources. I found the Freedom Fight curriculum very helpful. The process of finding freedom from sexual sin can be difficult and lengthy, but I discovered it is possible and the hard work is worth it!
I am now walking in freedom and leading a small group of men from my home congregation through some of the same material. I am grateful to God for His work in my life, and for the way he has used Arthur and his ministry to accomplish His purpose in me.
'I started working with Arthur because of an ongoing struggle with impure sexual thoughts, fantasies and imaginations. These thoughts had become an addiction and a lot of them stem back to all sorts of sexual sins and sexual addictions from my past. The materials we have gone through have been very helpful in taking us to places in my past, identity issues, lies I’ve believed, family wounds, abuse,
etc. that I never guessed we would go to. I’m continuing to learn how these things have driven my addictions and how to replace them from the truth of God’s word and who He says that I am.
Even though Arthur and I live many states apart, the ability to connect through video calls has been beyond my expectations. The software we use to track progress, store notes of conversations, fill out forms on how I’ve been doing, etc. is both simple to use and helpful.
My journey towards healing and freedom continues and I’m grateful to have someone walk with me who cares, understands, encourages, is willing to ask hard questions and who has become a friend.'
'My experience working with Arthur was pretty amazing. The simple accountability was something that I needed a lot. My main sexual struggle and addiction has been masturbation. Just knowing that he would be checking in on me regularly was a big step towards healing.
I appreciated the trustworthy and safe environment that he creates. And his focus on underlying issues is really helpful to overcoming Unwanted Sexual Behavior. Focusing on the reasons WHY I turned to Unwanted Sexual Behavior helped give fresh perspective. Arthur puts a lot of time into his work with you, and it shows.
If you choose to do the program, I sure don’t think you will regret it! I thank God for the work he is doing through Hope Journey Guide.
'As someone that was in a in-person group Arthur led, I would highly recommend that anyone that is struggling with addiction and sexual bondage to ask him to help guide you to freedom and spiritual maturity in Christ. Arthur walked with me when I was struggling with lust, pornography and masturbation. Arthur created an atmosphere that I could honestly talk about my struggles without feeling shame and condemnation. When there were misunderstandings his humility and honesty gave me courage to continue to pursue my relationship with God. Thank you for providing tools for me to overcome my sexual sins and making it possible for me to pursue marriage from God's perspective!'
“Several years ago, I have had the privilege of joining an in-person group that Arthur was leading at the time. My recovery journey began with joining a recovery group and really looking to find wholeness and freedom from porn addiction. For years I had been using porn as a coping mechanism to deal with shame, anxiety, fear, low self- esteem, and not doing hard things. Joining a group was the first step in a long process of finding freedom, experiencing love and acceptance from who knew the real me. Ultimately, it meant going back into my past to deal with the trauma of my childhood and youth years, uncovering the shame of hiding an addiction, and repealing the lies that I had believed about myself. Arthur was there to guide me along this journey to freedom, to replace lies with truth, and develop new habits and coping mechanisms.
As the months went on and I experienced sobriety for the first time in many years, the “real me” started to emerge again, the brain fog was gone, the strongholds were broken down, and the scars of shame began to heal.
I began to experience the joy of being fully known and fully loved by those in my group. No more hiding! Since I began my recovery journey some 2 ½ years, God has blessed me with a journey towards wholeness and freedom. I have since gotten married and am experiencing the joys of marriage without having to hide a secret porn addiction. Each week as I meet with Arthur and other men who have experienced sexual brokenness, I am once again encouraged by the passion that Arthur has to help others in the Anabaptist community find freedom and wholeness. His passion and drive to learn all he can about this subject, along with the time and effort invested to development his ministry have equipped him to become a leader in the
conservative Anabaptist community to address this issue head on andprovide real lasting solutions.
If you are caught in the web of sexual addiction, please find help today. The longer you wait the more addicted you will become and looking back you will mourn the wasted years of your life.”
