Our mission is to restore the integrity of individuals, spouses, and families that have been affected by pornography and pornography addiction. Integrity Restored provides education, encouragement, and resources to, break free from pornography, heal relationships, and to assist parents in preventing and responding to pornography exposure which is so devastating in the lives of our children. We also hope to be a resource that assists clergy in assisting families at the parish level, so that the domestic church truly becomes what it is, the human space in which we encounter Christ.

I thank you and Jesus for sharing this. My husband has been into porn for a few years. I am devastated,shocked,etc. I couldn’t believe he did this to me. He knows how I feel about porn and the abuse i have been through because of it in previous relationships. I have thought about leaving many times. I can’t handle this pain and all the horrible degrading feelings this crap and him is putting me through. I have been searching relentlessly trying to find a shred of a reason to stay. The Lord brought me to your story. It has made me realize the walls my husband had built up around him. I have started my own to. We have been through a lot sense i got sick in 2012. Life came to a halt and so did our marriage. I new my husband had problems with being open about his feelings but I didn’t know how severe it was until now. All the little signs that have been popping up in the last couple months sense his father has been in my husbands life more have pointed to a bigger picture. It scares me but now with my eyes open to more truth because of this story, I know what we need to do. Pray we can heal,restore, and rebuild our marriage. It’s a long road but I love my husband and as long as he will repent to me and God , see the whole picture and willing to be truthful I will work with him to get through this. God bless

I actually HATE the title on this article! It’s very triggering. Maybe if you had said, discovering his addiction instead. I know in my case , his porn problem nearly killed me. I literally was suicidal before I found it. But it was his problem that put me there. His behavior, related to his integrity issues and the guilt and shame that went with it, is what pushed me into a severe depression. It was by DISCOVERING his porn problem, that I realized that the way he treated me in our marriage was due to his issues. I cannot say that even discovering his problem has truly helped me. Its early in my process, and very painful.

    Alli, it’s early in the process for me too. I have so much anger and resentment and confusion and sadness and heartbreak. This title bothered me too but I’m happy that the author has reaped so much from such an awful situation. I’m sorry to hear that you’re going through it too 🙁
    I’m starting to see this as an opportunity to turn to Christ. I put my worth in my partner and that was so wrong. My worth was shattered, I felt like scum after understanding what it meant that he watches porn. Trust is in the gutter. But I have to heal, I have to recovery regardless of what he does or doesn’t so. I have to allow Christ to heal me because I want serenity, peace and joy. You’re not walking alone Alli.
