Someone recently asked me, “Are you praying for a wife?” I answered honestly, “No, not really.” The person seemed surprised. “But why not?” My reply was something like: “Well, I’m young, and I just moved here and started a new life on my own.

I Helped Someone Cheat

It was the weekend of August 1st. I was in New Orleans for a wedding. Traveling alone was always a strong temptation. New city. New opportunities. I found myself in my hotel room in a very familiar situation but with a different twist. See, I was a sex addict. At the time I didn’t call it that. It was just …
