A secret so dark that you couldn’t ever share?
Not even with those closest to you?
For many years, Andy Kirk, a former professional Rugby League player, fought as hard as he

conversations he had with his physiotherapist to finally guide him to a relationship he
could never have imagined…. And redemption of the supernatural kind!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Andy Kirk is a former Leeds Rhinos Rugby League player, the founder of Porn on the Brain; a ministry outreach which
aims to educate the youth of today and others about the dangers of pornography, both psychological and emotional, and
the owner of Born Again Sports Therapy.
He retired from professional rugby in 2009 after a successful career spanning over 12 years.
Andy is actively trying to bring awareness of the British family court systems to the government and believes strongly,
alongside others who work within the family court legal system, that the Scandinavian family court system is more
beneficial to children of separated parents, emotionally, psychologically and relationally. He is currently working with
groups focusing on father’s rights in hope to ensure a legal change is made in this court system. Andy lives with his wife
Mel and two of his children in the north of England.
“Andy’s biography is a compelling read, from the highs of a professional sporting career, a lifelong addiction to porn, relationships,
betrayal and the many twists and turns that his life takes.
This is a “can’t put down” book! Andy shares and bares his heart, frustrations, pains, and
consequences for his life choices – warts and all. This honest, emotional and raw story will possibly
shock, surprise and evoke a different response from every reader. The ending has yet to be written
and ultimately there is still hope even in the most despairing circumstances. My prayer for Andy
and his girls is that God in His mercy, will trade ashes for beauty……it’s not over until it’s over”
Warren Evans, CEO of Sports Chaplaincy UK
