You will never come so far that you have nothing left to learn.
Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Every man I meet is my superior in some way. In that, I learn of him.”
I challenge you to learn one thing about recovery this week. There are many ways to do this. Pick one:
Go to a meeting.
Listen to a podcast.
Read recovery material.
Have lunch with anyone else in recovery.
You can learn from anyone. And you should learn from someone!
Recovery Step: Learning from others is a big thing in the Bible. Which is why Paul told his followers, “The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you” (Philippians 4:9).
Mark and Beth Denison, married for 36 years, launched There’s Still Hope as a national movement to call men and women into lives of sexual integrity. Their ministry offers 90-day recovery plans for addicts and one-on-one and group coaching for addicts and their spouses. TSH also produces resources for pastors and churches to confront the porn epidemic that is destroying so many lives.
Dr. Denison was a senior pastor for over 30 years, NBA chaplain, and board chairman at Houston Baptist University three times. With a Master’s Degree in Addiction Recovery, Mark is a certified PSAP and active member of the American Association of Christian Counselors.
Mark has written four books on recovery: Porn in the Pew, 365 Days to Sexual Integrity, A 90-Day Recovery Guide, and 40 Days to Porn-Free Living. His latest book, Jesus on the 12 Steps, will be released later this year.
