As an owner of my own business, I was always conscious of my status in the community. And yet deep inside, I was torn by the awareness of my sexual addiction and the harmful, destructive repercussions of my behavior. David not only helped me face what I had done, but helped me realize who I really was--a person of worth and value. He gave me reason to keep on living and to learn to care again. He led me back to life.
Through his honesty and compassion, his strength and vulnerability, his understanding and love, he helped me discover those same qualities in myself. That makes him my hero. I pray he will always be in a position to facilitate that process of healing for others who are lost in their own grim darkness but looking for the light. No one can do it better.
