Steve: Hey guys! Steve here with Belt of Truth Ministries. I’m on the line with Crystal Renaud. Crystal is the founder and executive director of Dirty Girls Ministries, and the author of the book Dirty Girls Come Clean. Crystal, thanks for joining us today.

Crystal: Thanks for having me. Glad to be here.

Steve: Yeah. So what’s the one piece of advice that you would give to somebody struggling with porn addiction?

Crystal: Well as the director of Dirty Girls Ministries, we work with women to provide health, hope and healing from pornography and sexual addiction. I work with porn addicts every day. That’s kind of my life, and it’s a ministry like among myself and among our volunteer staff, we kind of have an unofficial motto of ‘no excuses’. So my advice for the addict may sound a bit harsh but it’s spoken out of the most loving intentions and as a woman, myself, who had been in addiction for 8 years of her own life, to those who struggle with pornography, I want to say stop making excuses for why you can’t get help and stop making justifications for why it’s okay. We no longer live at a time where there aren’t valuable resources out there for you to get help with. That’s what DGM is all about for women. 1 Corinthians 10:13, it’s very clear, God will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. He will give you a way out from temptation and give you what you need to endure it. So once you start to let go of excuses and start being honest, that’s when healing begins with addiction recovery. Without the excuses, you become more honest with yourself, more honest with others, and obviously more honest with God. And that is when real, authentic breakthrough can actually begin to take place in your life.

Steve: Awesome. Thanks for that advice crystal. Tell people where they can find out more about you and about Dirty Girls Ministries.

Crystal: Dirty Girls Ministries, you can find us online at There you can get membership in our community. You can find out more about what we offer as far as resources go. I also have a book that kind of goes hand in hand, Dirty Girls Come Clean. You can get that on Amazon or pretty much anywhere that sells books.

Steve: Awesome. We’ll link to all that in the show notes below. Thanks again for your time. I really appreciate all your doing. I’m sure you guys realize you’re meeting a big need out there and I appreciate you guys filling that void.

Crystal: It’s a real honor and we thank you for doing what you’re doing as well.

Steve: Thanks again, Crystal. See you.

Crystal: Thank you.
