Saturday #37--Fight the New Drug

Hyrum can't read cursive yet.

 He asked me what my shirt said.
Don't fill your head with lies.

"Mom, that is a FANTASTIC idea."

While I didn't explain the complete meaning behind this statement, even a seven year old understands the difference between truth and lies, reality and fiction.

This is a cause I believe in. Pornography is fiction--lies regarding sex and intimacy that distort expectations and cultivate body loathing.

If you haven't heard about Fight the New Drug, I encourage you to visit their website, like their Facebook page, follow them on Instagram (#pornkillslove) and help spread their message.

Pornography is not a private indulgence. Pornography hurts couples, breaks up marriages, creates self-doubt, and can destroy families. 

Pornography is subtle, easily accessible, and misunderstood. Our children see it on television, on computers, and on cell phones--whether they are looking for it or not. Society has accepted it as harmless and natural, but society is wrong. Terribly, horribly, completely wrong. It is an addiction that weakens bonds between partners. 

Join with me. Join the fight against pornography. We can make a difference, and our voices can be heard.

Fight the New Drug.

  1. Jen, I have been following your blog since your last pregnancy so about five years now.
    In that five years, you always seem to write about what I need to hear or something that really makes me wish I knew you personally.
    At first, it was just crazy life with kids. I had two kiddos, 16 months apart, and I was trying to get the hang of our hectic life.
    Then it became infertility when I was diagnosed with PCOS and was told it would be difficult to have more children.
    The years since then were filled with doctors, fertility treatments, and a lot of emptiness as my husband stopped attending church and told me he no longer believed in God and so we stopped trying to have another baby and save our marriage.

    Last year, he left me and I've struggled to pick up the pieces since then.

    The reason I tell you all this is because since my husband leaving me, I have found out that he has been addicted to pornography since the age of 14. He left me because of pornography. My marriage ended because of this vile substance that is available so easily to our children and loved ones. My children have had their hearts broken and their family torn apart because of pornography.

    I am a fighter. I fight pornography the best way I know how...by talking about it openly on my blog and by sporting my Porn Kills Love shirt whenever I can.

    And I am here to say THANK YOU for being a fighter too. Thank you for being aware, for posting about it on your blog, for hopefully saving another person's marriage by giving them hope and resources. Fight The New Drug is amazing and I love everything they do to fight against this powerful and horribly addictive thing.
