For years, Ben Bennet experienced deep anger, a p*rn addiction, and mental health issues like anxiety and depression, before finding hope and healing through biblical, neuroscientific, and psychological solutions. He currently serves with Josh McDowell Ministry (A Cru Ministry) as an author, speaker, and the Director of The Resolution Movement - a new national initiative helping youth overcome hurts, unwanted behaviors, and live a thriving life.

In this episode, Robrenna and Ben discuss:
1. Ben’s life journey of addiction, therapy and recovery
2. How Gen-Z kids are usually first exposed to p*rn
3. What happens to your brain when you are exposed to p*rn regularly
4. What should we do if we suspect our kids are looking at p*rn or if they confess (choose curiosity over questioning)
5. Understanding why humans are susceptible to addiction
6. Practical resources for parents and teens

Verses Mentioned:
Ephesians 1:11; Psalm 23; Romans 8:37-39
