Help Us Help Others

Have you experienced our support in the form of a listening heart, or participated in a healing telephone support group with one of our coaches? Would you consider helping support our outreach as A Circle of Joy Ministries as we reach out to others? Could you pledge a $5 donation every month? Together we can make a difference for marriages and families hurting because of sexual addiction.



There is much confusion in marriages today when it comes to the topics of forgiveness and trust.  This confusion is greatly increased in a relationship that has been marred by sexual additiion.  In this 12 week long phone group, we debunk 8 myths that make rebuilding trust nearly impossible.  We will then focus on on the 9 non-negotiables of rebuilding trust in the marriage relationship and how to incorporate these non-negotiables in our recovery journey.  The text for this group is the book co-authored by Stephen Artueburn and Jason B. Martinkux entitled, "Worthy of Her Trust," published in 2014.  The cost for this group is $40.00 per 90 minute session, and can be paid for in one payment of $480 or three equal payments of $160/month.

On the day that Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden, they had no clue that, in that single act of disobedience, they were forfeiting the intimacy that they had enjoyed with their God and with each other. Ever since that day, husbands and wives have struggled in their attempts to communicate, understand, and fulfill one another's needs. In fact, many are not sure how to begin this process. I invite you to come with me on a twelve week journey during which each man will learn how to identify and gain release from his past wounds, understand his current emotional/spiritual maturity level, and begin experiencing genuine joy that flows into his life through intentional, life-giving relationships. These are foundational truths without which we men will never experience true intimacy in our lives.

In this 12 week group we take an honest look at God's original design for marital intimacy, and how that design was shattered when Adam and Eve chose to turn their backs on God and true intimacy with Him.  We address two main questions in this study: 1) Is it possible to reclaim what was lost in the Garden? 2) If so, how do we go about reclaiming that which was lost?  In this 12 week group we use as our text a book I recently completed, entitled "Reclaiming Paradise." It is strongly recommended that a man complete Intimacy 101 before enrolling in this group.

A 12 week group, using the life-changing material contained in the book, "To Be Told."  Is the goal of a man's life to live free of addiction, or is there more?  In this challenging group, each man will be equipped to discover who he really is, as well as the purpose for which he was individually designed by His Creator.  We have been designed for far, far more than to simply survive. . .God has made us to thrive!  In "My Story" each man will discover how he can thrive in his daily living.
