Why Battle Pornography?

Why fight the battle against pornography? Because it’s not just sinful, it can be devastating. Porn can affect every area of your life, including relationships, work, school, even health. Left unchecked, porn habits always grow worse.

If you’re caught in the grip of porn, you should know two things: First, it is absolutely is worth fighting the habit. And second, chastity is most certainly possible. There is hope.

Envisioning Your Best Self: Harnessing Your “I Want” Power

One of the key insights of The Augustine Way is harnessing what some psychologists call your “I Want” power. We’re familiar with the common aspects of willpower, which involves “I Will” and “I Won’t” powers, but these are limited without a long-term vision.

Your “I Want” power is the ability to envision a healthy future for yourself–a future of holiness, wholeness, and peace. In essence,  it is imagining your best life and pursuing it.

The Augustine Way will teach you how to create this vision of yourself–based on God’s vision for you–then give you the tools to work toward it.
