Facing a moment of truth regarding his sexual purity a couple years
after his wedding in 1981, Fred Stoeker is well aware of the battle men
face with sexual sin. After stumbling upon his father's Playboy
magazine under his Dad's bed in first grade, Fred struggled with
pornographic materials for the next twenty years or so. Despite
entering a committed relationship with Jesus Christ at age 23, Fred
continued to struggle with pornography until his wedding the following
year. He quickly found that marriage did not eliminate the problem and
the negative effects of his sexual sin upon his intimacy with God and
with his wife Brenda grew more each year.
While Fred had
graduated from Stanford University with a BA with Honors and had begun a
successful sales and consulting business in Des Moines, IA, his
marriage was struggling, as well as his feelings of personal integrity.
Embarking on a study of Christian literature on marriage as well as
reviewing his studies on Human Sexuality at Stanford, Fred began to
search for answers to his problems. Daily Bible study allowed the word
of God to wash him clean and to begin to transform his mind, and before
long, God had used Job 31:1 and Luke 6:46 to begin to break the
stranglehold that sexual sin had over his life.
years, Fred watched for a Christian book to be written that would
convey the practical knowledge that the Holy Spirit had taught him
during his battle for sexual purity. He knew such a book was necessary,
because he'd been teaching these practical principles over the years
and had seen the impact they had in the lives of men in his city.
Imagine his surprise when God tapped Fred himself to write that
practical book he'd been watching for. Just as God had promised Fred
during prayer, God took this practical message all over the world
through the best-selling books Every Man's Battle and Every Young Man's Battle.
Fred's marriage to Brenda now spans almost thirty years in the Des
Moines area and has been blessed by the birth of two sons and two
daughters. Currently, Fred is a bestselling author of several books,
including Hero, Every Young Man's Battle and Tactics, the
president of Living True Ministries, and a popular conference speaker
who challenges men to become sexually pure, to reconnect in true
intimate relationship with their wives, and to train their sons to
become godly men.
