Beyond Fifty Shades and Fantasy: Women Addicted to Porn
Although porn is starting to be talked about more freely in Christian circles, a lot of porn's victims are still abandoned. Porn is not just a guy problem- many girls and women use it too. Christian women who are addicted to porn are often drowning in secret shame, a secret addiction, and a belief that they are the only ones with this secret problem. Colette was one such woman. She shares her story of addiction, shame and recovery in order to help women find freedom. Many Christians are unaware that women struggle with porn and do not know how to help. If it is our aim to equip Christians to share the Gospel, we need to understand not only how to talk about this issue which is affecting so many Christian women - we need to learn how to address this topic with the world around us, a society that is often sex-obsessed.
Colette is a young woman who has always had a sincere interest in the well-being of others. While studying at the University of Lethbridge she became involved in activism for a number of issues. She committed herself to sharing the Gospel of hope in our secular world. Through her own battle with and victory over pornography, she became especially passionate about speaking out for others, especially women, struggling with issues related to sexuality. Colette has given many workshops and presentations in Southern Alberta on sex-related topics- specifically, pornography and Christian sexuality. Colette is dedicated to helping people fulfill God's calling for them in their lives, honouring Him with their bodies and minds, and sharing with the world God's plan for us - including His plan for sex.
