Jessica Harris grew up in a cultural Christian home, she followed all the rules and expectations of her faith, but still fell prey to pornography. When she stumbled upon pornography at the age of 13, she became addicted and developed a double life of shame and perfectionism. Even after finding Jesus, she struggled alone, unable to find a safe place to talk about her addiction. But just when she thought she might have a way out, a devastating blow leaves her questioning everything.
I learned how to cover up my tracks at that point, learned how to clear my history, learned how to clear my history, and then also type in website so it looked like I had been researching for school. And over the course of the next couple of years, I just developed this ability to be really sneaky about it, and I would go to great lengths to protect my consumption of pornography. – Jessica Harris

This is Jessica Harris’s story:
Jessica Harris grew up in a conservative Christian home, where faith was more about following rules than building a personal relationship with Jesus. At the age of 13, she inadvertently stumbled upon hardcore pornography while researching for school. Initially, Jessica justified her curiosity as a safe way to explore her desires without engaging in physical intimacy. Her addiction deepened, impacting her academic performance and leading her to a double life of shame-fueled perfectionism. Despite her efforts to find help, resources for women struggling with pornography addiction proved scarce. The lack of understanding and support left Jessica feeling isolated and confused, believing she was the only woman facing this issue.
