Here's the "REAL DEAL BIO"
The information written just above about Tony Ingrassia is the "official" information we're supposed to include on the website, but here's the "real deal" about Tony's life. He was a deeply broken man for many years whose sexual addiction manifested itself in his life through constant lust, compulsive masturbation, pornography, strip clubs, and adulterous affairs. In the darkest of days Tony literally despaired of life itself when the consequences of his addiction threatened to bring total destruction upon his life. That's the bad news.
But the good news that Tony is now experiencing is proclaimed in Psalm 147:3 - He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
Tony believes this is his greatest "credential" within the Kingdom of God. Not college degrees, or books written, or ministries started. But living proof that God Almighty has the power to bring His light, truth, healing, redemption, restoration, and Kingdom to the most wounded, broken, confused, disoriented, and messed up people on this planet. In fact, Tony believes this is the essence of the gospel of Christ - God's ability to bring His light and life to our places of darkness and death. If God can help, heal, and redeem Tony's messed up life, there has to be hope for everybody and anybody else. Convinced that many good men struggle with their sexuality, it's Tony’s hope that his story will help other men find hope and healing as they seek to bring their sexual gift under the authority of Christ.
Tony lives with his wife Sheri in St. Charles, Missouri and owns a farm in northern Missouri which allows him to pursue his great love of the outdoors.
