Ever Accountable is Committed to Helping Women For a long time now, we’ve noticed a lack of help for women who struggle with porn, which is a problem! Women and men experience pornography differently for many reasons, and because of that, they need different kinds of information to find the motivation to quit.Here are a few basic reasons as to why women interpret pornography differently then men: Porn is produced and consumed mostly by men (66% of all consumers), so it…

WHY DO WE LACK STRENGTH FROM TIME TO TIME? “Then he said to them, “Go your way. Eat the fat and drink sweet wine and send portions to anyone who has nothing ready, for this day is holy to our Lord. And do not be grieved, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10 I’ve been thinking – “why do so many Christians lack strength in their daily walk with the Lord?” We know God is our strength…

I’d like to share a thought I believe the Lord gave me regarding entitlement and the ongoing struggle that so many Christians have when they lose sight of the awesome privilege of God’s grace.  I can best illustrate this concept with a story. An adult on visits his parents at their home for a two-week stay. He is very close to them, but has been living in another country for some time. During his visit, he falls into his old…

RWM BLOG – AUGUST 2020

“…hearing for the first time”  by Judi A. Thompson Today I was strolling through Facebook. I found some old friends and new articles and information. It was just a lazy time of browsing. I came across the clip of children and adults when they could “hear” for the first time. It brought tears to my eyes. Those of us who do not struggle with hearing loss take hearing for granted. Watching them experience sound brought many of them to tears. A little…

RWM Blog July 2020 – “Fake News”

Fake news – by Judith A. Thompson (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) Fake news websites (also referred to as hoax news[1][2]) deliberately publish hoaxes, propaganda, and disinformation purporting to be real news—often using social media to drive web traffic and amplify their effect.[3][4][5] Unlike news satire, fake news websites seek to mislead rather than entertain readers, often for financial or political gain.[6][4] Such sites have promoted political falsehoods in Germany,[7][8] Indonesia and the Philippines,[9] Sweden,[10][11] Myanmar,[12] and the United States.[13][14][15] Many sites originate, or are promoted, from Russia,[3][13][16] Macedonia,[17][18] Romania,[19] and the United States.[20][21] The other day I noticed a post on…

“Change!” by Carol Wagstaff Groen and Phillip Lee

Change! By Carol Wagstaff Groen and Phillip Lee The Oxford American Dictionary defines change as to make or become different; to pass from one form or phase into another. Certainly, for any individual the greatest change is to become a Christian and know that your destination has been changed from hell to heaven; to become born-again. While Scripture and an abundance of secular literature provide evidence that homosexuality, though deeply ingrained and even habitually practiced, can be overcome both as…

In the middle of the muddle

Was thinking this morning about the words “muddle / wallow” and their action words “muddling / wallowing”.The dictionary definition is:  mud·dle – verb: muddling  bring into a disordered or confusing state. synonyms: confuse, mix up, jumble (up), disarrange, disorganize, disorder, disturb, mess up“you’ve muddled things up” confuse (a person or their thoughts). synonyms: bewilder, confuse, bemuse, perplex, puzzle, baffle, mystify “she became muddled”  busy oneself in a confused and ineffective way. God reminded me when Paul and Silas were thrown into prison.  (Acts 16:16-40)   Now I’m far from being a “Paul” but I sure know the feeling when it…

“I gave up too soon.”

“I gave up too soon.” A few years ago I was helping out with our church’s ‘feed the homeless’ outreach. When all the meals had been served a lady walked up and asked for a second helping of food. A minute before the chef took that tray away that had some of the food on it. She looked and said, ‘Oh well’, then passed by. A few minutes later the chef returned with a bit more food. I called out…
