Finding Healing And Purpose Through Vulnerability- With Eli Nash

Eli Nash is a recovering porn addict who spent 15 years of his life in shame in guilt while he struggled with controlling his addiction to porn. On top of that, Eli had kept a secret from his family and friends for years: that at the age of 8 he had been sexually abused by a person he, and his family, had considered a friend. Eli shares with us on this episode his experience being a victim of sexual abuse, how he coped with it and how he later confronted his abuser during his process of healing. He also discusses his struggle with porn addiction in his adult life, and how he was able to turn his unfortunate story into a meaningful purpose.

A big highlight for this podcast is how passionate Eli is on people sharing their story with others and finding connection and healing through it. Eli experienced it for himself and he has seen it work wonders for others; as he states “when we share our hardships, it moves us from shame into healing”.
