RE: Let’s talk about porn

Earlier today my friend Liz Layne posted a wonderful blog titled: “Let’s talk about porn

Please take the time to go check it out. There is SO much good that can come from it…

I went ahead and shared it on my Facebook because of the need for awareness when it comes to this topic.

For some odd reason, it seems to be an unspoken topic within the world. As if it’s not supposed to be talked about. Which is exactly what the enemy wants.  Satan wants the condemnation and shame to overwhelm people to the point of keeping it a complete secret. If he can convince us that we have to keep it to ourselves we will continually fall into a deeper and deeper pit of despair with porn.

Truth is, it only gets worse after your first exposure. I saw my first porn video when I was 8 years old and ever since that moment I can remember YEARS of struggling with it. The worst part was that no one knew about it. No one knew what I was doing behind closed doors and no one knew the damage that was being done to me.

The damage that was being done was completely self-inflicted. I spent over 10 years watching porn on a regular basis to the point of it seems completely normal to me. It led to a lot of self-confidence issues and a ton of insecurities within myself. Not only physical insecurities but self-confidence issues in general because it seemed to me like only super hot dudes would get the super hot girls. What made it even worse was that my gauge for a woman was purely physical. 

After 12 years of not knowing God, I finally gave my life over to Christ at the age of 20. What seemed to be a normal thing to me, quickly became my biggest “thorn.” What I mean by that is that it came to my realization that watching porn was not normal or healthy. Thus sending me into a spiral of struggle, condemnation and even MORE shame.

I’m not going to go into great detail on this, but this is a plea to all the parents out there… Please protect your children. There are locks, apps, and countless resources out there to help educate and protect your children.

Message me, comment, email, whatever… Just please educate yourself and your children on the dangers involved. I was 8 years old with no clue and it plagued me for over a decade (and still does from time to time).

Don’t allow yourself to think your kid is too “innocent” because that may be true, but satan wants nothing more than to steal that innocence away from them…

  1. Thank you for shining light on the topic of pornography. It’s devastation needs to be talked about. It is not normal or harmless to the individual or his/her family. We need all the voices we can find to fight this battle. Glad you are joining in.
