In February of 2009, she launched Dirty Girls Ministries out of the experience of her own journey of becoming whole after an 8-year pornography and sexual addiction as a teenager. She holds a Bachelors of Science in Psychology from Liberty University and four certifications including Professional Life Coaching from the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) and is a member of the AACC in good standing. In her book Dirty Girls Come Clean (Moody Publishers), Crystal shares her story of freedom from pornography use and is being used to bring other women out of bondage as well.
Crystal’s work has been featured in the New York Times, ABC News, Christianity Today, 700 Club, Outreach Magazine and more. She also speaks to church services, college groups, youth groups, women’s groups and virtually any other group or conference on women’s pornography and sexual addiction as well as on a variety of other topics. Speaking topics include Living Single on Purpose as Christian Women, Pursuing and Keeping Healthy Friendships/Relationships, Faith Dilemmas/Distorted View of God, Women’s Emotional Health (emphasis on Depression/Anxiety), Support Group Facilitator Trainings, Church Communications and more.
Crystal has lived in the Kansas City area since the age of 10 and considers herself a native. She resides there with her dog, Cinna. In her spare time, she also works part-time at Advice & Aid Pregnancy Centers and watches as much Kansas City Royals baseball as possible. #ForeverRoyal
