Dirty Girls … Giveaway

The power of a personal story in remarkable. But the truth is … the willingness to share from our own brokenness is both risky and scary.

That is why I am so grateful for my friend, Crystal Renaud. She has thrown open her life and story of porn addiction and healing in her new book, Dirty Girls Come Clean. She writes:

It is my firm belief that God never wastes an experience.

And sharing is about knowing that you have a story, and that sharing that story is an essential part of your healing.

If you had told me fifteen, ten, or even five years ago that I would be writing a book that exposes my whole story and be the founding director of an anti-pornography ministry, I would have laughed in your face.

But that is how big the God we serve is.

He can take what was once a broken vessel and piece it together again. He intends to use your story in remarkable ways. And His refinement is most often the best part.

Did you know that 1 in 3 visitors to adult websites are female? Did you know that 81% of women who frequent pornography sites will eventually escalate their behavior to in-person encounters?

This is a problem and addiction that, though we may not know it, is probably touching women in our churches, ministries, and neighborhoods.

Not only do we need to be informed as leaders, but we also need to know resources where we can point these woman for help and healing.

Crystal also foundedΒ Dirty Girl Ministries to help women struggling with pornography and sexual addiction.

Today, we’re giving away 2 signed copies of Dirty Girls Come Clean.

And … we’ll make it easy. I’ve been curious to know where you ladies live … our own little geographical study of the Leading and Loving It community. Just leave a comment with the place you call home .. and you’re entered.

    I grew up in Wyoming, but I really like Nebraska. We have been in some part of NE for most of our 17yr marriage.
