Love Story

Somewhere, right now, somebody–perhaps a man struggling with sexual addiction; a mother feeling overwhelmed; a spouse feeling unloved; a teenager wrestling with temptation; a woman caught in the sex industry; a young person feeling violated…

…just needs to hear how much they are loved by God in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:38-39).

Documentary: Somebody’s Daughter

Our friends at Music for the Soul have created a number of great products, all of which offer hope and encouragement to those walking through the ups and downs of life.  Somebody’s Daughter is a piece we highly recommend.

Pornography addiction is rampant, growing, and affecting lives in our churches and schools right now.  Somebody’s Daughter is a DVD/CD set that includes music videos, vignettes, nine original songs, poetry, scripture readings, and a documentary featuring individuals, including a married couple, sharing their struggles with pornography in an honest and authentic manner that provides hope and encouragement.

Click here to watch and learn more about the project, and consider sharing this resource in your church or small group to open up dialogue about what life in a pornified culture looks like, even within the walls of the church.
