My Story by Tim Jarvis

I was born in Birmingham England in 1961 and born again in Hull England in 1983. I enjoyed my short life as a sinner although I can remember little of my excesses now. Life as a Christian has been harder but definitely worthwhile. I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. (Romans 8:18).

I'm a Chartered Engineer specialising in Radio Frequency (RF) electronics and Electro-magnetics (see my professional website). However I've worked as a chef, a bottle-washer, an evangelist and I'm presently the worship leader at our church. Hardest job of all is being a parent of young adults. I have three grandchildren.

I concentrate on spiritual passions here and not temporal things like cricket (another passion). However it's my great hope that I can play cricket in heaven because my Sundays on earth have been otherwise occupied.

My key hope for this site is that I can help fellow addicts get free from their addictions. I was addicted to porn for twelve years and now I'm keen to help others who are addicted to get free. "Poll results indicate that 50% of all Christian men and 20% of all Christian women are addicted to pornography, said Clay Jones, founder and President of Second Glance Ministries" (a ChristiaNet poll). So if you're a Christian reading this chances are you have a problem too. The answer is a simple one, live in Christ, stay in Christ, abide in Christ. But applying this simple solution is difficult. Want to be free? read more here.

A church filled with ineffective Christians is what Satan wants and porn addiction is a great tool for him achieving that end.
