I started this page as a way to get my book, I Am Free, into the hands of people in prison. While I still want to pursue that to a degree, my focus now has completely changed.

With my new book now available, I want this to be a place where those struggling with pornography can come and find hope. Share their stories. Network with other people who are struggling as well and those who have overcome.

I am going to ship as many copies of Addiction To Adoption to as many places as I can. If you want to play a role in this endeavor, please consider donating.

You can private message me if you have a story to share. You can email me at lifewithinhim@gmail.com

I just want to encourage people who think there is no way out. Is your marriage crumbling all around you because of this addiction? It doesn't have to. God has completely restored my own marriage and my wife and I are discovering intimacy like we've never known in our seventeen years of marriage.

God is good. Hit me up. Let me know what's going on and how I can help.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

You can contact me several ways.

Received another letter from an inmate whom I've written a couple times already. He has four kids under the age of 12. The mother of his children left him when he told her they had sentenced him to a minimum of 22 years in prison.

He gets to see his children on occasion behind a impenetrable sheet of glass because he is in a level 5 maximum security facility.

He said there is so much theft inside those walls. People getting stabbed. Corrupt officers.

He is at a point in his life where he doesn't know how he will ever survive such a long sentence behind bars.

There are thousands, if not millions more stories exactly like this. I want to encourage them. Give them hope. Shine a light. Give them Jesus.

You can help me do that.

I will be shipping out some books today. Mailing off several inmate letters later this week. Interview on a friend's blog.

It feels as if most of the beginning momentum has tapered off, but I know God is always moving. Even when things don't appear to be happening, He is always working things out for good. Can't wait to see what He has coming up next.

Thank you all for the generous donations.

Sitting here this morning amazed at how awesome God is. Knowing there are people all over this country who have been encouraged by I Am Free. Who have found a new sense of hope. Purpose. And are discovering how much they are loved and valued.

As Christians, we are here to love people. All people. Let's be a light in the darkness. Let's give people Jesus.

Thank you to all who have donated. You are making a difference in the lives of many.

Hope you have an amazing Saturday. Waiting on 50 copies of I Am Free to arrive so we can take those to a recovery center a little over an hour away.

Sent 5 copies to a friend of mine yesterday. His church has a prison ministry so he will get some in there.

God is awesome and is bringing me in contact with some amazing people with hearts for the broken.

Thank you all so much.

Hey Chris, as you know my son is an inmate at Lee Correctional in Bishopville, SC and he is also the lead of the Mens Christian Ministry group for Lee. Please let me know how I can get him a copy of your book. Can I buy it and you mail it to him? God Bless you for loving these men. I still donate hygiene bags once every 3 months to the men who complete my sons classes on how to be a christian inside of prison.
