"This book says what every balanced person knows: "Sex is beautiful". But it also says what a growingly disturbed world does not know: "The abuse of sex..no matter how clamorous, no matter how perfumed and smiling..is NOT beautiful." This is the most unusual book for our times, concentrating on subjects that are seldom stressed: purity, virtue, and peace of soul. There has never been a time when such a book was more badly needed. Haffert stresses that purity of heart can be achieved by devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, wearing the Brown Scapular and praying the Rosary. Contains many meditations for the fifteen traditional Mysteries of the Rosary. Highly recommended.
(I haven't read this one, but Steve Wood of St. Joseph's Covenant Keepers highly recommends it for people who struggle with this)
Laurie Hall learned of her husband's secret addiction to pornography after more than 18 years of marriage. Laurie relives the nightmare that nearly destroyed her family, warning others of porn's seductive, addictive nature. She opens her heart and bares her soul, imparting keen insights and comfort. And she shares the hard lessons God taught her. Through research, tenacity, and faith, Laurie has found a way to reach out to her husband, and together they have begun to slowly rebuild their marriage. The Hall's story is not an isolated case. But it is an amazing testimony to the growth and restoration that come from God.
This book is in print and should be easily acquired through bookstores or online.
An excellent book, contains lots of great advice. Highly recommended!
