:Every church is filled with people who are struggling--often secretly--with addictions of all kinds. Porn, pills, food, money, alcohol, social media, body image, status, sex, anxiety--the list goes on and on. John Elmore is no stranger to addiction. Fifteen years ago, he put a loaded shotgun to his head and later had three doctors tell him he was going to die of alcoholism. More than 15 sober years later, he leads the world's largest weekly recovery gathering, re:generation, where people journey toward healing in Christ.
In Freedom Starts Today, he makes a huge promise to the addicted: you can be free from your struggle, and much sooner than you may think. Through easily digestible readings grounded in Scripture and the practice of daily surrender, Elmore shows you how to break the cycle of addiction, make war against sin, and find your identity in who you are and not the shame of what you have done--one day at a time.
Leave behind struggles, addiction, and shame as you walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and in the love, mercy, and forgiveness of the God who is not only by your side but on your side.
"I trust John Elmore. He lives and leads others by these words in our church. Revival is a hard thing to quantify, but it always includes a growing devotion to the Lord and repenting of sin. And that is the fire God will start in you as you live out what you'll read within the pages of this book. It's a fire our world is craving and I hope spreads to the ends of the earth. Churches must become hospitals. And John Elmore is the one to lead such a movement."--Jennie Allen, New York Times bestselling author of Get Out of Your Head; founder and visionary of IF:Gathering
"Freedom Starts Today is a clarion call for believers succumbed by secret sin, from porn to pride and everything in between, to find the freedom and deep fellowship promised in Christ. This is a practical lifeline to freedom."--Josh McDowell, bestselling author of Evidence That Demands a Verdict, More Than a Carpenter, and more than 150 books
