SORT BY Relevancy
All temptation begins with a single thought. Whether we realize it or not, we have the ability to choose to ignore tempting thoughts or allow them to remain in our minds. If not kept in check, our temptations can lead to disappointment, failure, rejection, isolation, and a host of other consequences. Perhaps that is why the apostle Paul wisely instructed the Corinthians to bring “every thought captive to the obedience of Christ”. Through the presence of the Holy Spirit within us, we have the ability to screen, select, admit, and cultivate what goes on in our minds. By His power, we can prevent our minds from taking a wrong turn and wandering into evil—but we must choose to focus on what is godly and good
Temptation is something we all face as Christians, no matter how long we have been following Christ. There are a few practical things, however, that we can do to grow stronger and smarter in our struggle against sin.
Strength is found in God’s Word, the Bible. In fact, there’s inherent power in the Word. In John 6:63 (NKJV), Jesus said, “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.”
Meditating on the Word feeds life to your spirit. And when you’re strong enough spiritually, you can do what God wants you to do, no matter what pressure the flesh is putting on you. So whatever the temptation is that you’re facing, be encouraged. You can resist it. You can have the self-control you need, by God’s grace, to say, “I’m going to do what God wants. I’m led by His Spirit and living His great plan for my life!”

Help the Temptress welcome the hosts of "It's Real Talk Radio" as they dive headfirst Into Temptation. We are going to finally hear from the other side when it comes to what they think when they hear certain words and we are going to clear up all misconceptions on both sides...because we are going to learn as much from them as they are going to learn from us. So strap up chin straps, lace up your cleats and put on your sear belt as we lead them Into Temptation and let them do what they do best: get real.

Her BLOG (http://www.nippercats.blogspot.com) is about her own child abuse. She says, "I started writing back in 2008, but now as a survivor I write about children in general." Mary works in an elementary school, assisting in the classroom with a teacher, and is an Educational Assistant for children with special needs. Mary writes, "Helping them do their work, teaching them skills they will need later in life. I have been doing this job for 25 years." and this is showing up as a new job, sorry about that everyone.

Tonight's special guest host is Barbara Ochoa from San Francisco, a returning NAASCA family member who has been with us several times. That's because Barbara (aka Petra Luna) has a special mission, one which we share with her here at NAASCA. Each year for the past three years, Barbara has produced a series of events celebrating what's become known as Male Abuse Awareness Week (MAAW -- the first week of December). Each year, recognizing that young males have an especially tough time even talking about being abused as kids, Barbara reaches out to this frequently undeserved group with videos, music events, dance and special guest appearances (Help4Guys.org). She encourages victims of abuse to seek help, justice and recovery through her music and nonprofit organization, the P.Luna Foundation. Barbara will be joined tonight by her guests Patrick Donaldson and DeWayne Watts. Patrick is engaged in revealing Male Military Spouse abuse issues and manages the web site www.MachoSpouse.com. DeWayne is the author of several books including the novels "The Boy in The Wood" and "David's Mark" and writes a blog at www.DeWayneWatts.com, where one can keep up to date on all his current projects. Join us to discuss these and other issues pertaining to Male Abuse Awareness Week.

Tonight's special guest is Brittney Bray, a returning NAASCA family member from New Jersey. A survivor of child abuse who was removed from her family as a teen, she was eventually able to take advantage of the CASA SHaW facility in Somerset, Hunterdon and Warren Counties, and is now enjoying life in recovery. At the age of 15 she was taken away from her family due to her parents' drug abuse and her father's physical abuse towards her. She experienced about 8 different placements from the age of 15 till the age of 16. She was involved with many organizations, including the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). At the age of 17 she had her first child. At 18 she married the baby's father and became independent. After her son was born, she was faced with opposition from the child welfare system which did not believe she could succeed as a mother. CASA SHaW was there to support and defend her, helping her to retain custody of her baby. Brittney says, "I have tried to make the best from my difficult past. I am thankful to CASA for continuing to be supportive to me. Today I am 23, I live in my own home, I have 2 healthy and happy children, and I have been happily married for 5 years. I work, and I am planning to go back to school. My parents are in my life, and the relationship I have with them is stronger than ever now. We've all made it to the other side of a bad time."

Wearing a Blue Ribbon is the symbol of Child Abuse Awareness! Millions of abuse victims (men and women) hide the story of their experience well into adulthood. A huge number continue to suffer from pain, anger, fear, shame and embarrassment for decades. Most will agree their traumas have resulted in an inability to trust, make good decisions and have healthy relationships. But giving up the secret is often how recovery begins, one survivor talking to another. Join Bill Murray and his co-hosts, panelists and guests, many of them abuse survivors, others supporters and friends, for an informed discussion of the many important issues that surround child abuse. Anonymous calls and chat room participation are encouraged. ~~ Please see our web site at: www.NAASCA.org
