We are James and Autumn and we’re so glad you stopped by! Just to give you a little background about us – we both hail from sunny California (him-Sacramento, her-Los Angeles) but now reside in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, where we met and fell in love, with our pup Molly and our sweet baby girl. We recently celebrated three years of marriage but have been together for a total of eight hard, yet rewarding years. A lot of those years consisted of us fighting to stay together through James’ battle with sex addiction, which is how Courageous Love started. Please feel free to explore our site…below is a link to our blog where you can read about the latest happenings in our lives. If you are a new reader, click below to learn a little more about how Courageous Love started and where to begin reading. Our story is where you can become better acquainted with how we met and our journey through dating, engagement, and then marriage!
We’re here to be vulnerable and in doing so create an idea and culture that allows for people to be vulnerable back. We’re here to offer support for people walking through things they don’t understand, to allow people to know that they’re not alone in the things that aren’t openly talked about. We’re here to show that loving through trials takes courage for both parties but is worth the fight.
Our hearts behind starting this blog was and is to shed light on sexual addiction and to encourage couples who are fighting to save their relationship or marriage that there is hope. Sex addiction is a taboo topic for our society and churches to talk about, yet so many men and women struggle with it on a daily basis. We made the decision to be vulnerable and share our story because we were tired of this topic being so quickly brushed under the rug.
We’re just a young married couple who desire to be real – no more masks, no more trying to pretend that life is perfect. This is just the beginning of our story and we are so excited that you are joining us on our adventure! Please feel free to leave comments, contact us, ask questions, follow us on social media, or share our blog with your friends.
