MY REVIEWI took the opportunity to review this book because it's a topic you don't see much about and as I work with teen girls and women I wanted to be aware of these issues However I uickly realized it was so much than just an informative read I was both shocked and helped by this book Shocked because I did not know nor understand the depth in which women struggle with sexual addictions And I was helped because it's than just information about the issues it's practical help for overcoming these sinsThis book is not for young readers and due to the testimonies included I stress caution and discernment in reading this book However that said this book will be a huge encouragement and help to those struggling with these particular sins or an aid for those helping others who are struggling The testimonies show you God's grace and how He can overcome anything Each section of this book is weighty but digs into the details of how to handle sexual sin and temptation in very practical ways I would recommend this book to any woman who is struggling with a sexual sin or knows someone who is or perhaps doesn't know if she is or not After reading this book you might just realize that you've been struggling with a sin pattern in your own life For those who are married I would suggest reading it as a couple so the husband understands the issues as well This review copy was provided courtesy of Moody Publishers but the opinion expressed is my own As part of my job as an editor I read a heart breaking personal statement from a Christian woman that was struggling with a pornography addiction For a variety of reasons I have become and aware of how pervasive porn addictions are among women and among several of my friends I was looking for a book that would give me a better understanding of this addiction and this book came highly recommendedRest assured God is much concerned about where you've headed than where you've beenAs soon as I read that line in the book I realized how much of God's heart for us is expressed in this book I struggled with an 11 year addiction to pornography During this time there was NO one speaking out about this issue with women So I felt alone and kept silent Now 11 years later there is virtually nothing published that deals specifically with women's addiction to pornography yet a uick search of statistics will show you that this is definitely an issue not only in Christian circles but in regular societyI was able to get an advanced copy of this book and after reading it I was able to find hope Crystal speaks in a way that probably every woman with this struggle can relate to as well as giving simple practical steps to start you on your journey of healing and recovery Also included in the book are stories of other women who also have struggled with the same issue proving once again that you are not aloneIt's a great book to reference and refer to again and againCrystal's ministry Dirty Girls Ministries also provides added support after reading the book so you can find even MORE help and community with other women like you I can't say enough good about this book and its author ARC book from Netgalley Pornography isn't just a man's issue it's also a woman's issue Majority of women won't confide in someone about their addictionI enjoyed the book even if it had nothing to do with me I don't have a porn addiction but I've known people who do I learned uite a bit from reading this book I'll be honest I never thought so many women had porn addiction I've only ever related the addiction to men because that's what most books talk about men and their addiction I believe the book is well written and I really enjoy how the author shares her story with porn addiction as well as others This book is a journey to freedom from pornography addictionWell written and gripping it is full of personal stories that shatter the illusion claiming you are the only one who deals with this addictionIn a world where Christian women are made to feel dirty ashamed and alone in their addiction to porn Crystal Renaud has broken the darkness and filled it with the light of the glory of the LordThis book will serve to be an invaluable resource in addiction recovery for individuals as well as in group settings This book needs to be read by women within the church that struggle with sexual temptation and for women to understand that they are not alone with their sin The only thing I didn’t like about the book was that it focused specifically on pornography and barely touched on other topics within sexual temptations These topics need to be brought out of the darkness and discussed between Christian women This book is a great way to do it and to overcome those temptations or addictions This book was a gift to me I knew that I was not the only woman struggling with porn addiction and Dirty Girls Come Clean gave me permission to step out of my shame As my recovery continued it became a great tool to share with others fighting the same battle Whether you are a dirty girl ready to come clean or standing by the pool merely wetting your feet and debating making the dive or a woman seeking understandingof the addiction that no one likes to talk about because you want to be informed soyou can love on and lift up your sisters in Christ who struggle with pornography addictionthis book is for youUniue both in genre and style Dirty Girls Come Clean discusses the one form of sexual addiction no other book has It speaks specifically to the sister who struggles with pornography addiction It reads like a conversation with friends and sisters who have been where you are but is also informative and educational as well as personal growth inspiring In fact this is exactly what the book is Author Crystal Renaud shares her personal story of pornography addiction and how her mess wasturned into a message meant for others to hear It's easy to listen to as it is told in a nonauthoritive tone throughout the book along with the inspiring stories of other women who have and still do struggle with pornography addiction The book also offers opportunities for the pornography addicted reader to be an active participant in her own recovery process offering a personal inventory section to figure out just where you are at so you can get where you want to go and uestions to reflect upon following each chapter Navigating the high and low tides of recovery with the use of an acronym known as SCARS Surrenderconfessionresponsibility and sharing Dirty Girls Come Clean takes the willing reader by the hand and leads her through the steps to redemptionThe stories of real Christian women's struggles with pornography let the reader know that she is NOT alone the biblical references and scriptures shared throughout the pages of the book serve as a reminder of Christ's love and plans for us and the lies society would have women believe about being sexually liberated are challenged by God's truth which offers true freedom from the bondage only a slave to sexual addiction of any kind could know The resources provided at the book's end offer essential tools for the beginning of a road to recovery for the addict dedicated to finding her freedom including internet filtering options community options to connect with others and most importantly the chance to connect with Christ for those who have not met Him yet So if you are ready and even if you feel you are not but you're feeling that nudge from God and it's about knocking you over by now allow light to be shed on the darkness in your life allow the doors you've been hiding behind to be opened allow your chains to be broken and allow your dirt to be washed away through the reading of this book and God's grace Dirty Girls Come Clean is part testimonial part resource and part informational It is also 100% needed It is the story of Crystal Renaud's personal journey through addiction to pornography and her recovery process In fact this book came about as a result of her search for resources to assist in the recovery journey and not finding any that adeuately addressed the specific issues and needs of women facing this particular addictionPart of the book adapts a techniue used in many sexual addiction recovery programs called SCARS Surrender Confession Accountability Responsibility Sharing A chapter is devoted to each category with explanations and testimonials from women at various stages of recovery included which are detailed but never graphic Practical action stepsuestions are included at the end of each chapter as well as additional available resources making it useful for independent use as well as group settingsThis book was very well written and is so inspirational It approaches porn addiction and its potentially associated behaviors such as masturbation sexting sexual activity as symptoms of a core unhealed woundedness The bottom line is that God never wastes an experience even maybe especially the painful ones Instead of hiding behind her shame and guilt Renaud is using her experiences for God's glory and wants this book as well as Dirty Girls Ministries to be a tool of liberation from bondage Her style is very conversational and user friendly making a taboo subject less threateningDirty Girls Come Clean is a book of inspiration and hope While I think it is destined to become 'the' go to resources for women dealing with porn addiction I also believe it is a must have resource for anyone who works with girlswomen in any capacity You just never know what that person is or will be going through particularly in this sex saturated culture It is unapologetically Christ centered but would also be a useful resource for anyone struggling with this issue regardless of religious affiliation or lack thereofI can't recommend this book enough I have been blessed to know Crystal for several years I stumbled upon her blog and then followed her on twitter way back in the day and was blessed enough to be in a lifegroup online LGO with her and several other amazing people We started sharing our testimony's and Crystal's was beautiful Even was that her heart was to help other women who were bound by pornography It has been a privilege to watch God work in amazing ways and for this book to become a realityCrystal has a passion for helping other women where she was Dirty Girls Come Clean is a powerful tool Using the acryomn SCARS Crystal shares how God can work in our lives to heal this addiction Not only is Crystal's information spot on as a counselor I found it very useful to make me think and dig deeper with my clients At the end of each chapter Crystal offers a Becoming Clean section where steps are introduced to help you on your journey That is what this book is A journey toward healingIn Dirty Girls Come Clean we not only get a very informative book we also get the added bonus of beautiful stories of redemption through the testimonies sharedMost importantly this book is not just for those women who struggle It is a fantastic tool for any women This is happening much than we think and I know we all have friends who may be secretly struggling It is good information for all of us to know This book is hopefully the first step of many unveiling secrets we keep as Christiansespecially those of us who are women We are all sinners in need of Graceand we need to stop hiding behind our lies we are okay and life is perfect Crystal takes a giant step here and we all should followDirty Girls Come Clean is an inspirational book that reminds us our God is still a Healer and He still works in amazing ways if we just let Him I highly recommend every single person in the church read it and have their eyes opened
