He provides insight into the many challenges that the Christian believer will face during their "faith walk" and uses his compelling testimony as a point of reference.

Seasons of Change is a workbook based upon a continual cycle found in the Word of God. As each section is walked out through answering self-examination questions, shared with a trustworthy mentor within the context of membership in the local evangelical church, and walking the practice of freedom out in transparency, an annual cycle is developed. That cycle includes revisiting the progress from the season that just ended, measuring progress or regress while encouraging growth as a free child of God in helping another person caught in addictive patterns. Seasons of Change crosses over from substance abuse, addictions of a chemical nature, abhorrent behaviors that are sinful in nature, as well as pornography and addictions of all types.
