90 Days to Wholeness Devotional



It is said that it takes 90 days to form a new habit and in recovery, 12-step groups challenge you to attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Here at DGM, we’re very excited to announce “90 Days to Wholeness” — a 90 day devotional designed to kick-start your recovery from pornography and sexual addiction (or whatever stronghold you’re facing). 

Whether you are seasoned in your recovery or you’re finding yourself here at the very beginning of your journey: we encourage you to take this challenge. What you can expect from 90 Days to Wholeness is a series of short devotions that will come straight to your inbox everyday for 90 days—written by our founder Crystal Renaud and a few select guest authors...

New Site, New Year, New You

We are so excited to share with you the recent changes we’ve made to the DGM website. These changes are a long time coming and believe they bring more structure and intentionality to the recovery process we offer women here.

Recovery from pornography addiction, any addiction in fact, is a process. At Dirty Girls Ministries, we want to come alongside you through a recovery process made up of five steps: Surrender, Confession, Accountability, Responsibility and Sharing — adapted from my book Dirty Girls Come Clean

The biggest change you will see is the RECOVERY tab.

That is where the journey now begins. The other big change is that our online community is now locked down with registration only available to those who complete the Personal Inventory (if you already have an account, you...

Dirty Girls Come Clean… GIVEAWAY

This is no April fool.

Two years ago today, on April 1, 2011, my book Dirty Girls Come Clean was published and released by Moody Publishers. It is an accomplishment that still baffles me, but I have been so blessed by the testimonials of the women who have read it and who are being set free through the transforming power of Jesus Christ.

To commemorate the occasion, I am giving away a total of 10 copies of my book to 10 people (one copy per person). Do you want one?

Just fill out the entry form below and you will be entered as many as there are options to enter (via facebook, twitter, etc.). Entries will be accepted until 12am, Saturday, April 6.

If you have already read Dirty Girls Come Clean, please leave a comment below sharing how it has helped you on your journey...

Breaking Free: Sundi Jo’s Story

Today we share Sundi Jo’s story. From her testimony she shouts the truth that the concept of failure is not of God, especially when it comes to addiction. There has been a lot of talk of failure on DGM’s community of late. And it is my opinion that this is a tool of Satan. He wants us to think that we have failed in our attempts to break free from the bondage of pornography & sexual sin. He wants us to think that there is no use in continuing in our efforts. THIS IS A LIE! Please repeat that to yourself now and anytime you feel discouraged after a relapse or a minor slip or even a moment of not being able to take captive of your thoughts. Our God is a god of GRACE, of MERCY, of COMPASSION, and of LOVE… not of failure. Thanks Sundi Jo for the much needed reminder! – Lauren
