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."

Regardless of how it happens, men and women alike become addicted to it. In her book, A Christian Woman’s Guide to Breaking Free from Pornography, Shelley Hitz has not only identified the problem, but offers a clear Biblical way to get out of the clutches of porn. Shelley speaks candidly from her own personal experiences with porn without delving into any of the goring details.
I highly recommend this book to anyone, male or female, who find themselves addicted to porn and want a way out. It is a book that Christian pastors and counselors will find very helpful in their ministries.
Using scientific evidence, scriptural evidence, and personal stories, this book provides readers a better understanding of how pornography impacts a persons mind and spirit. In addition, these authors walk the reader through more than a dozen specific strategies that women can use on their journey to find freedom from porn addiction. I highly recommend this book!
In addition to helping others find the courage to admit this addiction, this book also gives real, practical steps to take to break free for good from this stronghold through Christ. These suggestions are appropriate for any kind of addiction as they rely on the power, love and grace of Jesus.
As a mother of daughters, youth group leader and woman in today's society, I find this book to be eye opening to the problem that faces each of us, no matter what our age. As we are bombarded by today's media, it could be very easy for any of us to fall into this trap. It is thought provoking and makes us step back and really think about what we watch, what we allow our children to watch and how something that seems "not so bad" can really lure us into something we never thought could happen to us as Christian women.
I applaud the authors and those willing to share their testimonies for sharing their struggle and their walk to freedom through Christ. You have opened the door for Christ to work in countless lives through your honesty and passion to share the word of God and the hope found only in Jesus.
