Crissy’s first step on the path of righteousness — was to demand that her websites be shut down and for all of the thousands of pages containing her nude photos to be removed from the Internet. Now, she’s actually preaching about the evils of porn and attempting to talk members of her website into canceling their memberships.
I grew up in Jacksonville, Florida and lived there most of my life. When I was in my early 20's I decided, spur of the moment, to move across the country to San Diego, CA. From there I moved to Las Vegas and then to where I reside today in Los Angeles.
“I made great money and more than I ever have in the time I have been in the business. It’s not about the money people … it’s about God convicting my heart.”I worked in the adult sex industry as a pornstar for 6 years. I left the adult business on October 6, 2006 when I made a public declaration to my fans. [Crissy’s first step on the path of righteousness] —From that point on I didn't take anymore money from the website which was my main income, I didn't shoot another nude photo, or do another movie. Unfortunately, my past will always be there. Part of being involved in such a business involves signing your rights away to companies and websites. They have a business to run and realize that sooner or later girls will want out so they have their bases covered from a business sense. That is the hardest thing for me at the moment because I have completely turned my life around but yet my past will forever haunt me. I do know however that what satan has meant for evil, God can use for good. As bad as it might be I know it has lead many to see my testimony. My goal now is to use my old broken life to reach out to others and help encourage other people who have struggles and let them know you can overcome them.
There are so many people who are hurting and in pain and don't see a way out. Even as I go through my own recovery, there are times when I can't see myself but I know with God by my side I can do all things for when I am weak, He is strong!
I am currently serving with Treasures, which is a non-profit that goes into strip clubs and brings gift bags with little goodies in it for the girls and a little card letting them know that they are LOVED. If it weren't for people reminding me that God loved me while I was in pornography I would still be involved so I see this mission as being an amazing opportunity to share HIS love with others who may have never even heard. A lot of these women's lives are much like my own - sexual abuse, physical abuse, broken families, and drugs. I know I would do or try anything to fill that empty spot in my heart.
I have been working one-on-one for the last 10 months with Harmony Dust, who is the founder of Treasures and my mentor. She has been a blessing to me. She and the rest of the volunteers are a solid team of women with a great love for God. They all have a passion to reach out to these women and love them.
Please take time to visit Treasures to learn how you can also get involved. Treasures is a non-profit and works solely from donations of all kinds from monetary to gifts for the gift bags. They also organize fund raisers throughout the year.
It is my personal desire for Treasures to grow to a point of having the resources to reach out to the porn industry, prostitutes, and abused women. -Crissy
