Review

What Women Are Saying:

"This book helped me to break free. I have freedom from my addiction now.  To God be the glory!"  - Allie

"This book helped me see that my sins were forgivable and that if I truly wanted to change my ways, God would give me the strength to do just that. This book saved my life! - Elizabeth

From the Author

Endorsements:

"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


"What a powerful book! Working with teen girls and talking candidly with them about the issues they face, I know first hand many girls are struggling with pornography and the path of destruction it takes them on. It has been difficult for me to find Christian resources that address the issue of pornography and females because it has been stigmatized as a "guy thing." This book gives me the resources I need."

- Katie Wolfe, Founder & CEO of Get Real inC

"This book by far is the best I've seen on the subject of pornography. I was molested at 12 years of age and got heavily into pornography because of it.  Back then I had no one to talk to and there were no books on this subject.  So the older I became the darker this sin became in my life. If you or someone you know is into porn, please tell them about this book. It might be their only hope."

- Scott Mason, author of "No Reason to Live" and "Beauty & Disgrace"

Format: Paperback
To empower women to overcome such an insidious and secret evil, it takes the courage of women like S'Ambrosia and Shelley to be brave enough to tell their stories and give hope to those still in bondage. It's high time we "get real" in the Church and get serious about helping each other instead of condemning and shaming as so many are afraid we will do.

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.

This book is a must read! What a breath of fresh air to see this author's transparency concerning this very real and problematic subject. Not only does the author share from her personal experience, but she offers realistic steps to breaking free from sexual addiction and pornography. The practical steps offered could be applied to any area of bondage or addiction. As the founder and president of a support ministry for women, I recognize that true healing begins when one person is willing to remove their mask and be transparent. When we remove our mask, we give others permission to do the same. The author exposes the secrecy connected with sexual addiction and helps to break down the barriers that often prevent individuals from getting help. I would highly recommend this book!

Format: Kindle Edition
When I was struggling with fear at its greatest point, God gave me certain steps to walk my way out. They didn't come all at once, but rather one at a time. As I walked out one, then I'd receive the next. After reading Shelley Hitz's book, A Christian Woman's Gide to Breaking Free from Pornography, the steps she outlines are exactly the same as those I took to be free from panic attacks. In a similar manner was the need to hide myself, the resistance to forgiving myself, and the need for the help of other Christians to pray for me and support me. I have always said it takes only one person to stand up and say, "I struggled with this, and here's the way out." God bless Shelley Hitz for being that person. This is a fantastic book full of resources and advice, but most importantly with a constant eye on the Word of God, on spending time in God's presence, to find the answer. It is a book of hope. Wonderful book that I recommend to anyone struggling with this issue, whether you admit it to yourself or not. - Suzanne D. Williams, author of "Fearless"

Format: Paperback
This guide looks at pornography from sociological, neurological, and personal perspectives. The authors wrote this book to provide assurance to women, especially Christian women, who struggle with the power of pornography in their lives. Hitz and Curtis believe that freedom from pornography is possible. A Christian Woman's Guide to Breaking Free from Pornography is based on a premise that, while images do not disappear, they can be controlled by redirection of thought, Christian counseling, accountability, and relationship with God.

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.
