Brittni De La Mora was one of the top porn stars in the world. After growing up in an abusive, godless home, she felt affirmed only when performing in front of adoring men. That is until the man of all men, Jesus Christ, came and showed her a love she'd never known. Listen to Brittni's wild testimony of transformation and being set free from porn, drugs, suicidal thoughts, and countless forms of trauma.
In this week's episode the guys chat with Keith Johnston as he shares his story about how a $15K phone bill due to porn use rocked his world. He also shares about how he came to terms with that moment and how it was a catalyst for him to get help!
You will always look for affirmation that you're not receiving
Brittni grew up in a home with verbal abuse and toxic relationships. She was never affirmed or told that she was beautiful, so when she got affirmed when stripping at a club on a Mexico holiday, she loved what it did for her confidence. This led to porn producers offering her a spot in the porn industry that she quickly took them up on. No matter how many scenes she did or men she was with though, the need for affirmation was never fulfilled, which drove her to do things for a pay check that she never wanted to do.
Abuse in the porn industry
Porn directors had Brittni doing scenes that she didn't feel comfortable with at all. She was getting tied up and hit or dressed up as a child portraying pedophilia with an older man. She didn't know that she had a voice in the industry, so instead of saying 'no' to these scenes, she endured the pain. She'd go home crying thinking about how much she hated what she was forced to do, but her pay check was on the line and drugs helped her endure.
God rescued her
When she was smoking heroine and becoming suicidal, she knew she needed help. She went with her Grandma to a church service where she gave her life to the Lord. After this, she was still in the porn industry for over three years, all the while hearing the voice of God and experiencing a greater conviction against evil. When she went back to porn one last time simply for the money, the Holy Spirit spoke to her about the wickedness of leading people into sexual immorality. She quit that day and has been bringing people out of the porn industry and preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ powerfully ever since!
