From the Author
"This book isn't just for women. It is for parents, teachers, faculty and administrators who work with women and girls. It's great for starting honest and transparent conversations about difficult and often embarrassing issues. The statistics are compelling, the ease-of-access to pornography is eye-opening, and the chapter on "your brain on porn" is essential information from which anyone can benefit."
- Becky Tirabassi, Founder of Burning Hearts Inc., Author and Speaker

It's been many years since the Lord delivered me, and He still has to remind me that there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus and that He did not deliver me to bring me shame. When I was still in the midst of my addiction, I had no idea that's what it was. The day I realized there was such a thing as sexual addiction and what that meant was the day I began my journey to healing. At that time however, there was no resource like this book, and I first looked to the self-help shelf at my local bookstore. All I found were secular books that left me relatively unchanged as I tried their tricks but didn't attack the root of the problem. What I needed was S'Ambrosia & Shelley's book. I finally found a counselor who walked me through similar steps outlined in this book, and I was delivered from my addiction.
We're surrounded with sexual images and eroticism. We're conditioned to love and envy the beautiful models while we learn to loathe our own natural and beautiful bodies. It's no wonder women of any age are lured into sexual addiction, adultery and even homosexual behavior. But the answer is in surrendering to God, and forgiveness. Shelley Hitz lays out a comprehensive roadmap to victory over this silent nightmare.
The testimonies in this book are real talk from real warriors who have overcome - you are not alone. We can all be victorious with Jesus, don't be afraid to trust Him with the darkest parts of your heart.Read more ›
Dr. Judith Reisman indicates pornography "could be more addictive than crack cocaine because cocaine can be excreted from the body, whereas pornographic images ... remain, structurally and neurochemically with a person forever." With this information, the authors show that pornography is deeply rooted in America, and holds certainly emotional if not physical consequences for those who become addicted.
Hitz and Curtis wrote this book "to open the door to confession and conversation among women in the Body of Christ who feel as though they are alone in this struggle." They share their own journeys, "true stories of struggle and freedom," and practical steps women can take "to break free" from their cycle of addiction to images or the written word. Throughout the eBook version, are links to other information and support available from or through the authors and other sources.
Two brave women have written a courageous book about a topic not often discussed from the pulpit, in small groups, or between accountability partners, which are the primary means of dissemination of support for Christians struggling with personal addictions.Read more ›
