Is it possible to complete a total 180 life change?

Today we had a chastity talk by Jason Everet and I was astounded by it. It made me think about all of my morals on the way home and still now. I have made fun of people in my past and have not stood up for people in the past. I have been personally impure and looked at porn and wish to stop. I have disrespected my girlfriend in the past. I don’t go to Church very often other then Mass at school. My home page for the computer is Netscape and it always has top 10 beauties of girls and other things. I have an urge to look at it and it seems like i cant stop. Every time I take a shower its like I’m tempted. I want to stop this and change. I want to stand up for people with the help of God’s Grace because I know that people who I thought were my friends will turn on me. I signed the Pure Love and am going to live by it from now on hopefully. I would also like to know where I can get a hold of one of the Pure Love bracelets because they ran out of them. How could I get one?

Dear Mike,

It is indeed possible to make a 180, but only with God’s help. If you want God to help you, He will. Begin by asking Him and by taking Him seriously. You make the change happen one step at a time. You know what you have to do: Pray. Change your home page. Don’t go there in your mind.

As for the shower, this is an easy one. Just turn on the cold spigot. You’ll be out of there so fast you won’t have time for any temptations. You can do it if your really want to!

I will contact you privately regarding the bracelet. Hang in there. You are in my prayers.
