Michael Leahy is an expert in the areas of pornography, sexual addiction, and recovery... and he's the Founder & CEO of BRAVEHEARTS... which is a faith based, mentoring centric ministry.
Prior to founding BRAVEHEARTS, Michael spent twenty years in sales and sales management positions with technology firms such as IBM, Unisys and NEC. But then his thirty-year relationship with pornography escalated into a full-blown sexual addiction that eventually cost him his marriage and family, a business partnership, countless relationships, and his reputation.
When Michael finally hit rock bottom, and was preparing to put a pistol in his mouth to end it all, he was trying to figure out what to say to his sons in the suicide note that he would leave behind. It was only then he was shocked to realize the enormous price that pornography and sexual addiction had extracted from his life.
That dark place helped him realize his desperate need for God, and he then began the difficult but redemptive process of his healing journey.
Eventually Michael founded BRAVEHEARTS, which is a faith-based non-profit organization whose mission is to lead people from sexual brokenness and sexual addiction to freedom in Christ.
Michael has written 5 books, including... Porn Nation - Conquering America's # 1 Addiction... and has made many media appearances as an expert on the issues of pornography, sexual addiction, and recovery, including 20/20, The View, CNN, CNBC, the BBC, and The 700 Club.
Michael's story is another amazing example of the powerful grace, mercy, and redemption of God!
You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free. John 8:32
