When Jonathan was exposed to pornography as a young boy... it began a compulsion that would eventually lead into a full blown sexual addiction that would last for 13 years... and literally almost destroy his life.
In 1999 Jonathan had been married for 4 years when his wife learned the truth of his sexual addiction... including the use of pornography... strip clubs... and prostitutes... among many other inappropriate behaviors that had become part of his daily life. It was only after his wife left him that Jonathan finally admitted to himself the true extent of his problem... and turned to God in utter desperation. He knew that if God didn't help him and change him... that he could never change himself.
On that important day... instead of finding an angry and resentful God... Jonathan discovered a God of love... mercy... and forgiveness. That began the redemptive and healing journey that led to the restoration of his marriage... and a ministry to help others who are struggling with sexual brokenness. Jonathan learned that God can heal ANYONE and takes delight in doing that which seems impossible!
Listen to this remarkable story of God's ability to heal a man who struggled with deep sexual brokenness for many years... and be AMAZED!
Jonathan lives with his wife and three children in San Antonia, Texas.
