Walk in the Light Conference and other news from L.I.F.E.

[ From the Directors ]
Conference this Summer
by Bob and Johna Hale, President and Executive Director

This July, L.I.F.E. will host its 2nd Annual L.I.F.E. Conference in Orlando, Florida. We are incredibly excited and feel blessed with the expansion of this conference. This year, we are increasing the conference to 2 full days of expanded content, break-out workshops, and a special Friday night guest speaker. As new developments are made in the field of sexual addiction recovery, we work to incorporate them into our conference, delivering the most up-to-date, comprehensive educational experience. We are supplementing the conference with break-out workshops for intense focus on specific topics in a more personal and interactive atmosphere. And we have invited Dr. Mark Laaser, the foremost Christian authority on sexual addiction recovery and the author of the L.I.F.E. Guide for Men, to speak the first evening of the conference on the Seven Desires of the Heart.

[ In Recovery ]
Baiting Lions Wait Patiently to Pounce
Brockwell Bone, Director of Development

Last month, I was camping with my Cub Scout and missed our church’s sermon on 1 Peter 4:7-11. Peter writes of casting all anxiety upon God. When I read this, I hear – “let go and let God”. In recovery, that is easier said than done; Peter continues, “Be self-controlled and alert” (v. 8a). Now we’re talking, Peter reinforces that yes, we should entrust our addictions to God, but we must also do our part – staying alert of triggers and remaining on our recovery path with self-control.

[ Facilitating ]
The SA Umbrella
Sue Moore, L.I.F.E. Alliance Director

Over a year ago I began describing the concept of sexual addiction as an umbrella of coping mechanisms similar to the beverage alternatives of the alcoholic and noticed the audience easily understood the scope and inclination of sexual addiction behaviors. Shortly thereafter I placed the illustration into our training presentation and realized as I communicated the idea the connection of our shame, abandoned value, fear and doubt would be like the originating cloud and raindrops of this scenario. Praise God for such a clear picture of not only the sexual addiction behaviors, but all coping mechanisms as our response to the lies we believe.
