    its so refreshing to have women being open and real about such an issue that it thought to mainly be a man's battle. such a lie of satan! its only through getting real that truth can be brought to light and we are not lost in our secrets. as another victim of 'the lies of sex, control, and power' and a leader in ministry, i have recommended this site to many!

    What an awesome chance to be able to win this book!

    I wish i would be able to buy it but expensese are pretty tight because Im in school and paying my full tuition.

    When i was growing up I was abused at the age of 5 by a woman from church, she took my innocense from me and took away the joy of being a child. I resented people from church and hated my sisters because they never experienced the fear and shame I did. when i was 12 years old i was abused by a man from church as well, I was devastated. at age 13 i began watching pornography and had no self worth. I didnt care who gave me attention, but hated myself because I felt i was unwrothy of being loved. at age 16 my porn addiction sky rocketed, it was a daily routine to watch pornography. i felt it was my release from the pain and hurt i was feeling. at age 17 i was still struggling with pornographt and i decided to look for help in the church, i was afraid of what the outcome would be but i decided to trust God and allow him to comfort me and love me. I grew up in the church and i knew God existed but i didnt see his existence in my suffering.

    in 2007 God completely took all my burdens and hatred away from me and renewed me and redeemed me from where i was. After about 6 months everything went downhill, i began watching porn again as my “escape”. i have struggled with pornography for more than 8 years and I know find myself more victorious than ever! God has taken me and renewed me and keeps teaching me daily on His love and His plans for me, I never have it easy because of trials that come my way but i end up triumphant in Him!

    I really hope to win this book!

    I just want you to know that this website has been SUCH a blessing. Not being afraid to tackle the hard issues is so refreshing and I only recently heard about "Dirty Girls." As a person who struggled with these very things (and brought that baggage into marriage), this blog has given me the courage to look at myself, dialogue with my new husband (4 month newlywed!) and talk to Jesus about cleansing me of sins.
    My past is not my future!

    Thanks! :)

    Getting to know from someone who had an experience of being a victim of pornography will help us know how to relate to those who are still suffering.
