from Recovery to Redemption

Tired of fighting a losing battle with pornography and unwanted sexual behaviors? Or fed up with your spouse's endless struggle that's left you traumatized and feeling hopeless. Well, you don't have to live like that anymore. 


For the first time ever, I'm sharing my BraveHearts blueprint for a newer, faster way to freedom. Grab your FREE 4-part video workshop From Recovery to Redemption to learn all about it.

Hi, I'm Michael Leahy, founder & CEO of BraveHearts. I've got good news!

I'm so glad you're here. As a recovering sex addict and subject matter expert who's lived in freedom for 2 decades, I invite you to watch a brief message of encouragement I recorded just for you. Just click on the video.

I Want to Help You Be Free.

Ever since I started BraveHearts back in 2002 as a faith-based, non-profit ministry, our mission has been to lead people to freedom from sexual sin and sex addiction through a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. This pathway's worked for me and hundreds of others. 

And I know it can for you, too. Here's how. 

  • Follow a proven plan that leads to lasting freedom.

    Don't see light at the end of the tunnel? Freedom is possible. In fact, if you just follow my simple Roadmap from Recovery to Redemption, you'll soon discover in spite of where you are today, it's been a key part of God's plan for your life all along. 

  • Get started right with a free self-assessment.

    Not sure where you are today or where to start? Don't worry, that's not uncommon. I recommend you begin where I did, by taking a quick and easy self-assessment test so you'll know exactly where you stand, and what your next steps should be.

  • Find qualified specialists when you need them.

    If it's recommended that you see a qualified professional, like a  counselor, mentor, or coach, we won't just teach you how to find the right kind of help. But we'll guide you to trusted resources like our own BraveHearts Recovery Directory.

  • Use Daily Disciplines that feature expert advice.

    Lasting freedom comes one day at a time. But only if you're following expert advice from those who've walked the walk and are living in freedom themselves. Their #1 advice: do your Daily Disciplines! It's what gets you and keeps you free!

  • Use mentor-curated content that's binge worthy.

    True, there's thousands of articles, websites, books and other resources you can access mostly free on the Internet. But do you really have time for all of that? What you really need is an experienced mentor who'll serve up only the best content.

  • Get connected with others who understand you.

    There's no doubt about it - this healing and recovery journey ain't easy. That's why everyone needs encouragement and support along the way. Our BraveHearts Communities show  us every day that true recovery happens in relationships.

        The value of the Q&A is extremely high, not to mention the other training...

        “I am just starting MasterClass & I feel that the value of the Q&A to be extremely high, not to mention all the other training videos & content. In fact, if someone were to listen to just the Q&A sessions alone consistently over the course of the year, I believe they would receive an incalculable amount of recovery wisdom & no doubt, avert many mistakes & missteps along the way. Thank you for your heart, courageous leadership & faithfulness to the vision God has given you & your wife. I look forward to this journey together.”

        Thank you for speaking boldly & with conviction about the [spouses] trauma...

        “Thanks so much Michael! There were several big pieces for me and my wife today! (My wife got to listen for the first time with me today and she was amen-ing with enthusiasm several times!!). We both can be tempted to get frustrated with ourselves individually and with each other... it was very helpful to see we are moving in the right direction! Thank you for speaking boldly and with conviction about the trauma the offended spouse deals with... and the best response the offender can exhibit! It’s been a great first week! Thank you!”

        It is why I am with you. I know I can't do this without community.

        “Because there are no groups in my area and I am new to it, finding a person to talk to has been difficult, even at my church.


        It is why I am with you.

        I know I can’t do this without community. I know I still need that.”

        Seriously thankful for your email coming into my inbox on the day it did.

        “Seriously thankful for your emails coming into my inbox on the day they did. My wife just left me on Monday and if it wasn’t for what I have been walking through over the last month I’m sure I would have turned to pornography as my comfort. Instead I have leaned Christ and the community I have around me.

        Thank you so much!

        You were even more on fire than usual. I took 4 pages of notes.

        “All the things we're getting in MasterClass are amazing, but I have to say last Tuesday you were even more on fire than usual. I took 4 pages of notes.”

        This is what I've been missing in my recovery journey...

        “This is what I've been missing in my recovery journey. I've found the counsel to be challenging and insightful. If you want to find freedom, MasterClass is a great place to start.​”

        Until we started MasterClass, I thought it was only his problem.

        “My husband is a struggler, in private counseling for one year. Until we started MasterClass, I thought it was only his problem. I am now receiving help from an EMDR trauma counselor and I have found such relief, new hope, & new life!"

        It helped me to see my addiction and myself more clearly.

        “It helped me to see my addiction & myself more clearly; it provided me with enough hope that change for me is possible & showed me direction & way to go. It changed the way I see my recovery &  that I wasn't created to live in this addiction.​”
