I know with my trial of going through my divorce, a lot of people fall away from the church when stuff like that happens. My testimony was actually strengthened because of the choices I made to turn to Christ instead of be angry at him or blame him.Lauren hunter
When you’re in a relationship with someone struggling with pornography, you may feel disconnected and hurt. This week, Creed and Crishelle talk with Lauren Hunter about how important it is to seek help when experiencing betrayal trauma, and how shame can get in the way of honest, open communication. They also discuss how pornography creates effects that damage relationships and how we can talk about those effects without creating more shame and fear.
In this episode:
- The effects of pornography on relationships.
- Get help when you feel something is wrong in a relationship.
- Find a 12 step program for betrayal trauma.
Lauren Hunter is 25 and lives in Orem, Utah. She grew up all over the country, plus Germany, has been divorced, and is always one for living in the moment—It’s her secret to happiness. She’s currently working for a software company while staying busy with her calling as relief society president in her ward. Right now she’s open to dating but not seeking it out and just enjoying life being single for a bit.
