Living proof that change is possible.

I must say, “It has been quite a journey!” I have actually been at Set Free longer than Jeanie. I first came in 1992 and I wasn’t sure what to expect. I now help with the many groups Set Free runs. Recently, I have been running the Monday night Overcomers group with the exceptional help of my co-leader John.

The Lord used Set Free to give me many blessings, not the least of them, a wife and family! Before that could happen, He had to do am amazing work of healing in my soul helping me to confront the wounds of my past and the unhealthy ways of living standing in the way of me becoming the man I am today! I so cherish the life I now have, but I want to be clear, marriage and family is not what heals. GOD heals and HE enables the tremendous blessing of the abundant life He desires for us. His plan has truly been “beyond my imagination!”

Currently, there is a lot of debate going on about whether change in sexual attractions is possible. I am living proof that it is!  But it took a long time for this work to be completed. Shortly before Alan Medinger (founder of Regeneration Ministries in Maryland/Northern Virginia) went home to be with the Lord, we had a conversation about just how blessed we were to have such beautiful wives! And we talked about what a freedom it was to see individuals through the Lord’s eyes. While on earth I know I will struggle with temptation in many areas. However, I no longer struggle in the areas that brought me to Set Free—freedom and resolution are possible!
