2017 St. George UCAP Conference
The Healing Journey from Sexual Addiction
Tray and Melody Lovvorn
Tray and Melody Lovvorn offer practical help for the struggler and spouse who are currently engaged in the fight to overcome sexual addiction. Gleaning from their own experience and the hundreds of men, women, and couples that they have walked with over the past 8 years, the Lovvorns go beyond behavior-management techniques and address the root issues that fuel sexual addiction. Tray and Melody will address shame, how people change, and betrayal trauma as they offer this unique perspective: the healing journey to overcome sexual addiction provides opportunities to connect at deeper levels of intimacy with others and can actually strengthen, not weaken relationships.
Tray and Melody had been married for 11 years when Tray’s secret struggle with pornography and sexual sin ripped their family apart. After 6 years of divorce, God brought about a miraculous restoration and they reconciled and have been remarried for almost 9 years. Discovering that true healing is found on the other side of pain, Tray and Melody have a passion to help men, women, and families experience God’s grace in brokenness and to learn to connect deeply with others in authentic community. Tray and Melody are sought after speakers and teachers on the subjects of marriage, parenting, sexual addiction, and betrayal trauma, and God’s wonderfully scandalous grace. Through Undone Redone, their Birmingham-based non-profit and weekly podcast, Tray and Melody provide life and marriage coaching, recovery intensives, parenting solutions, and help churches establish Christ-centered recovery groups. They live in Birmingham, AL with their four children and ferocious Peekapoo, Toto.
