Who is the Man Up! Team?
“Let us hope and pray that this book will play its part in inspiring a twenty first century army of Catholic Gentlemen …renaissance noble men who will lead a new resurrection.” – From the Foreword Fr. Dwight Longenecker, convert from Anglicanism and author of over 15 books and booklets, including More Christianity: Finding the Fullness of the Faith
“This book encourages men to become who they are; who they were created to be. Jared Zimmerer, and his extraordinary contributors offer sage advice to a culture of men gone soft. It will contribute a significant amount, I think, to the renewal of authentic masculinity in the Church.” Matt Fradd, Catholic apologist and speaker; a leading voice in the fight against pornography.
“Behind many of today’s crises lies a crisis of manhood. Our culture desperately needs men marked by virtue and strength. If you’re a man who is tired of mediocrity, who craves greatness and wants to live a heroic and meaningful life, this book offers the best blueprint I know. Buy it for yourself, and for your sons, brothers, fathers, and friends. Then read it and emerge a more noble and masculine man.” Brandon Vogt, popular blogger, writer, speaker; author of The Church and the New Media

There are numerous resources available for men (and women) who have addictions to pornography. The essential element in dealing with an addiction is that the FIRST STEP towards recovery takes place. The next important step is the continual work. The journey is long and hard but the freedom that comes from breaking the chains of an addiction to pornography is almost overwhelming. I highly recommend checking out TrueManhood’s Guide called “5 Step Plan” and then determine what sort of resource(s) you need to make your plan effective. Here are just a few ideas, and a few resources.
- Serious prayer and a life full of the Sacraments!
- Your PLAN is essential, figure out what it needs to be, then put it into action.
- Accountability with your accountability partner. This person needs to be a man and should not be your female friend, sister, girlfriend, fiancée, or wife.
- Spiritual Direction with a priest. I recommend seeing a priest regularly so that you can obtain necessary graces from the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
- Sexaholics Anonymous – check your local area for locations and times.
- Counseling/Coaching (Email us at ContactUs@TrueManhood.com for more information.) Group Counseling may be a good option as well.
- Support Groups/Men’s Groups
- Books, Prayer Guides, DVDs, CDs, Podcasts, Websites, etc.
- Internet filters, software and firewalls.
