We are really excited to share with you a brand new book by our Speak Up Conference friend Jen Ferguson and her husband Craig titled, Pure Eyes, Clean Heart, A Couples Journey to Freedom from Pornography. Jen has graciously given us a copy to give away so make sure you read on…
This book tells their story—one of pornography and healing. Their journey through pornography nearly destroyed their marriage but God healed them—both of them. In this candid account, both Craig and Jen Ferguson share their personal story of the shame, anger, and hopelessness associated with Craig’s porn addiction. You’ll read how they chose to forgive, overcome pornography addiction and use it to glorify God.
Although they try and navigate it on their own, they both realize they can’t do it without Christ. Each and every day had to be handed directly over to Him. We cannot go through something like this without His power. Because they didn’t do it alone, they overcame this struggle. We can overcome any struggle we are facing because with Jesus there is always hope. As we flee to Him in refuge, He equips us to weather the storm. [pg. 111]
I loved Craig’s honesty and I loved Jen’s obedience and forgiving heart. She knew she had to forgive Craig, which was incredibly difficult but necessary. Jen states that forgiveness starts with obedience to God to His word (Colossians 3:13). Things change when we obey and forgive those who hurt us.
It’s clear that Jen and Craig were called to write this book. It’s not just their story, it’s helping others who are walking this journey. They give real life applications and resources to help. They also have a series of videos with Q & A – very interesting and informative.
Pure Eyes, Clean Heart offers encouragement and hope to those who struggle—or whose loved ones struggle—with the lure of pornography. If you or someone you know are walking this road, please comment below or send an email to be entered in the drawing.
