Every woman I have ever met has been burned by the desire to be good enough. And I’ve met many, many women who struggle to believe they are beautiful because their husband’s or boyfriend’s pornography addiction. After I discovered my husband’s pornography addiction, I blogged about the healing process we went through together. I was stunned by the number of women who contacted me, struggling to find their worth in the aftermath of porn crashing through the door of their marriages.
The porn industry is a billion dollar industry. It’s everywhere. And it’s affecting marriages across the globe. I thought I would have found helpful, relevant resources to aid me in healing from the damage porn caused to our marriage, but most resources said the same things over and over: “Don’t look to men for validation; look to God.” I knew that, but I wanted something deeper, something that reached into the heart of the woman healing from the pain of her husband’s porn addiction.
In More than Desire: Hope for Women in the Shadows of Pornography, I dig deeper to help women discover why their husband’s porn struggle hurts so much, how porn destroys lives, and how they can actually find hope and healing for their own hearts and their relationships.

There is a historic life movement coming to the body of Christ!
To be pro-life is to be pro-child.
Since 1973, the church has protested Roe v. Wade—the US Supreme Court case that declared on-demand abortion as a right.
The church is commanded to stand against darkness, but it also has an authority and responsibility to shine brightly and drive out the shadows.
It’s time for a new, proactive life movement that answers the critics and empowers the church to walk out the mandate of Malachi 4:5-6, turning our hearts toward the children.
Randy and Kelsey Bohlender share their inspiring story of embracing the call to be pro-child. This book will mobilize you to join the body of Christ and:
- Break the orphan spirit upon a generation
- Sift through the facts and myths about adoption
- Play your unique role in raising up the Moses’ in this hour
- Adoption is the next frontier for those who call themselves pro-life.
Take your place in ushering in this historic life movement!
