We’re Glad You Are Here!

 

Shelley Hitz, Author |Speaker

Christian women and porn are two concepts that don’t seem to go together, right?  However, I know what it feels like to be caught in the trap of pornography as a Christian woman.   Yes, I have struggled with pornography.   It is not something that I am proud of, and to be honest, it is something that I wish never happened, but God is using this dark season from my past for His good.

You see, I travel and speak across the United States to both teens and adults. Once God prompted me to start sharing my testimony of how He freed me from the grips of pornography, teen girls and women began to confide in me their struggles with pornography.

You Are Not Alone If You Struggle with Porn

In fact, pornography is a fast growing problem, even among Christian women. Our goal is to offer hope and resources to help you overcome this trap of the enemy.

Pornography is something that many women are addicted to but not talking about, especially in the church.  It is impacting families and marriages and controlling many peoples’ lives. For many people, myself included at one time, all they can think about is the next time they will be able to access their computer or the next thrill they will get.

Some get hooked innocently through another person showing it to them or through an ad while surfing the Internet. Others are bored and get drawn into chat rooms or webcams that eventually lead them down the path of getting trapped into a pornography addiction.

Although men are the ones typically drawn to porn due to their visual nature, women are also getting hooked. Even Christian women in good marriages, who are active in ministry, are getting trapped into this sin.

My co-author, S’ambrosia Curtis and I pray that if you or someone you know is struggling with an addiction to pornography, you will find hope and help within this website and our book, “Christian Woman’s Guide to Breaking Free From Pornography.”  Ultimately, our hope comes from Jesus Christ, but it also comes from knowing we are not alone and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Freedom from pornography is possible!

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.    Romans 15:13

  1. Wow! Shelley, I congratulate you for this brave move. You are tackling an issue that we “the church” do not want to talk about.

  2. I congratulate you too, Shelley, and it’s the “dark seasons” and our times in the “valleys” which frequently enable us to be of the most help to others! You’re using yours well!

    Thank you for the opportunity to read your ebook free. Just finished reading it today, great read! Everything you wrote about was right on, the resources right on the money. Appreciate the time you took to put your thoughts and suggestions to print. I have already done several of your suggestions, so it’s great to see I’m on the right track.

    I am a 32 year old Christian woman, who has struggled with pornography since I was 8. Today I am 160 days sober. :) I refuse to go another decade in this crap!

    Appreciate another Christian speaking out about this topic offering hope and leading the way!! May God bless you and keep you standing strong and firm in Him.

    Thank you for leading by example to live in purity!

    • AmyChristine,
      Thank you so much for your encouragement and for taking the time to read our book. We pray that your 160 sober turns into many many more!

  4. Thank you for this. Most organizations that deal with breaking porn addiction focus only on the men. Or they only speak of women as codependents of addicted men. It is very alienating to the women who are hooked. I have been struggling for years & it has hurt my ministry & my marriage. Porn definitely leads to more serious issues & I have fallen to temptation far too many times. I will defeat this addiction. & it will be because women like you have been unafraid to cone forward & let me know I’m not alone.

    • Nikki,
      Thank you so much for sharing your struggle and for the encouragement. It has not been easy writing this book and speaking out on this topic but it is so worth it to help women like you. I just said a prayer for you and pray that God brings complete victory, healing and freedom in your life!

  5. I got to your site via an email link to the She’s Somebody’s Daughter site.
    I applaud you and your ministry. I have been a Christian for over 40 years, active in church leadership and teaching. Pornography had never been an issue for me until I sought to assess it’s accessibility to my children via the internet. I was trapped for 15 years. When discovered, it very nearly ended our 40+ year marriage. Rescued by God’s Grace, I am 3 year sober and active in a Celebrate Recovery ministry.
    While men are the largest client of pornography and suffer guilt & isolation because of it, many women have a great battle with it too.
    God’s Grace is the answer!

  6. I need to add that individuals involved with another who is addicted to porn need help in dealing with this problem too. Where can anyone turn to get support when their spouse has a problem with pornography. This is a whole field of ministry that needs to be addressed by the body of Christ.

  7. Hi. I am a young lady from South Africa who found your website via your youtube video post. I just want to thank you for sharing your testimony. I too have been struggling with porn and masturbation for the last few decades and have been trying to get free for a long time. It feels like such a stumbling block in my spiritual walk. I have alot of people that speak to me about their issues and depend on me for advice so its really hard to ‘come-out’ with my problem especially since many see me as a pillar. I have confessed many times to God but I feel like even God is tired of me now. I have recently started on my ‘journey to healing’. I am reading your book and pray with all my heart that this be my turning point because even though no one knows, i feel like I have disappointing many.
    Thank you Shelly, you have no idea how much hope you have given me.

      You’re welcome Penny! I’m thankful you found the video, our site and now our book. I pray Christ truly brings healing and freedom in your life!

    Hi Shelly

    Wow, saw your video/testimony on YouTube, it led me here. I’ve been looking for teachings and for encouragement for a long time. I really want to encourage you to keep sharing your testimony. You are truly helping so many women through your story.

    It’s beautiful to see the body of Christ being real

    Thank you!

    • shelley says:

      So glad you found my testimony on YouTube! I pray that many are impacted and God is glorified.

  9. My name is Marc and I’m a man. I read your blog thanks to the site Nycodem.net. If I’m writing this is because I myself through the situation you have lived. My father is a man of God, a pastor and it’s since my teens that I’m addicted to pornography and masturbation. And until now, with 19 years, I can not stop me whenever I’m on the internet to visit pornographic sites. And each time, I have remorse. So when I decided to stop the temptation becomes greater. Then reading your testimony and the steps you took to get to be liberated from this link I started to understand that the Lord has a wonderful plan for me and really wants me to be issued, and that by my own conviction . Thank you for your courage because thanks to your testimony, I can cross with Jesus that dark part of my life. GOD bless you

    • shelley says:

      Marc, I pray that you also find the freedom Christ has for you! Thank you for stopping by and sharing.

  10. Hello,
    I am a 17 year old girl and i have been addicted since i was about 5 or 6 and have found no solution in becoming free of this sin. Ive tried many different things and techniques but none have helped. I do feel that I am getting closer to liberation and trust in the Lord that I will get through this someday but its still really hard. I will never give up. All I ask is that whoever reads this will please pray for me to overcome this addiction, as well as for my boyfriend who happens to be in the same situation since he was 8. We are both doing what we can to stop and are helping eachother out, but it is still hard for us to accomplish individually. Please pray for us, we want to be free. Thank you for this website and for your encouragement :) .

    • shelley says:

      Julie,
      You are welcome! I’m glad you found this website and encouragement here. I just prayed for you to overcome this addiction in the strength only Jesus can give you.

      ~Shelley~

  11. I saw your testimony on Youtube and I just wanted to say thank you. I’m trying as well to stop completely. Please pray for me please. I’ve been addicted since I was 10 and I’m now 24. I just don’t want it to control my life anymore.

    Thanks for listening Shelley,

    James

  12. Hello
    i’m a 15 year old girl who is struggling with a pornography addiction since i was 8 years old . I have tried so many things to help me stop but nothing seems to work , i thank God that i have found this website because it was getting to the point where the guilt was so bad i almost committed suicide because i felt so worthless and disgusted in myself . i want to find a way to let my parent know but i don’t know how to say it , i’m praying for God to give me the strength to tell them so they can allow me to buy this book .

    Thanks for listening :D

  13. Dear Shelley:

    Thanks SO much to you and your husband. I just listened heart-felt over a number of days to your witness on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ppKsaePpmrk. Being a male, I wasn’t going to contact you until you mentioned your husband. Then it became OK! Though the details are of course too complicated to communicate here, I’m negatively effecting my (honestly) great and God-blessed marriage with the problem you cover. Though I’m a Catholic Christian, I’m not at this time comfortable with my church per se for a group. So I’m kicking around a Christian therapist and–since listening to you–a 12 Step group. Can you recommend any in my area? Richardson (Dallas area), Texas 75080 They post some on-line, of course. But I’d especially trust your input. Thanks again you two. In the Love of Christ, Glenn

  14. Hello, I am a Christian man who has been fighting addition to lust, masterbation, and porn for over 35 years. I am a man who is involved in Street ministry and abortion clinic street counseling. I have everyone fooled that I am a in control wonderfully sprit led Christian man living out the will of God in all area’s of my life. I am such a hipocrite and deceiver. I prayed and and continue to pray and make no head way for decades. I read my Bible regularly and are involved at my Gospil based church. I even run a weekly Bible study at my church. I can have success for many weeks even months on end and then always fail. I know the truth that there is only victory in Jesus Christ and him alone. I am at my wits end. I know my eternity hangs in the balance due to my actions. I have no other additions that I am aware of. I only want to be a true man of God. Atleast I hope and pray that is the truth. I am concerned with my salvation. I want to be in Heaven with my Lord one day. I am so ashamed. The female form is used by satan to distroy me. There must be victory and the victory only comes through Jesus Christ. Like Paul says “examine your self” I don’t like what I see. I appreciated you hearing me out. I am so fitigued and burned out. This sin so afftects my life. Can you believe I am a 56 year old man still dealing with this battle. Thank you Dave
