God Transforms Ex-Porn Star Who Now Encourages People to Honor God Through Sexual Purity

By Movieguide® Staff

After seven years in the porn industry, Brittni De La Mora could have never fathomed that God would free her from her past and that she would one day marry a pastor.

After Brittni became a Christian, she decided to take a year off from dating relationships and focus on her relationship with God.

“In that year, I started seeking God every day. I would worship, pray, and read the Bible,” Brittni told CBN. “Through that, God healed me and made me a brand new woman. He completely restored my soul. I was able to forgive every single person who ever hurt me. So, in that year God prepared me to be the woman that I am today.”

Brittni said that her perspective on what real love was changed when she experienced love from her Creator.

“I settled for guys because I thought they loved me, but now that I understand what true love is from God, I wasn’t going to settle for a man who couldn’t love me the way that God loves me,” Brittni said.

On Feb. 20, 2016, Brittni married pastor Richard De La Mora. Today, they lead the ministry of XXX Church, which seeks to warn people about the dangers of pornography and encourage them to live a sexually pure life.

“When I first met her, I didn’t even know she was in the porn industry,” Richard told CBN News in an interview. “I found out when she was sharing her testimony. But even then, her being in the industry, I never really looked at her as a product of her past. I looked at her as a product of God’s grace. What God has done in her life has just been incredible.”

Richard continued to point out the harmful view of sex and relationships that has taken over American culture.

“There definitely is a war,” Richard noted. “Lust takes, but love gives. We’re in a society that’s all about taking and it’s not being self-less but selfish. And when it comes to pornography, it’s just contaminating the minds of so many people.”

He continued: “The thing with pornography, we don’t see it as ‘that bad of a sin’. You know, ‘you can dabble in it. It’s not going to affect me.’ But the reality is it does affect you.”

Richard also explained how purity before marriage goes beyond just abstaining from sex.

“Purity is not (just) ‘no sex before marriage,’” Richard said. “Purity is a lifestyle where we have a pure heart, a pure mind, and we have a pure approach in all things that we do.”

Brittni added that living a pure life, in accordance with God’s word, only happens when we entirely rely on God’s power and the accountability of fellow believers striving towards the same goal.

“It’s hard, and it’s not easy,” Brittni said. “But with God all things are possible. And so, what you need to do if you want to walk in purity – if this is the desire of your heart – you want to honor God with your body. You need accountability and you need to just set clear basic boundaries.”

Brittni added: “If holding hands is too much for you, don’t do it. Set yourself up to succeed. Don’t set yourself up for failure.”

Richard is adamant that believers should use time spent as a single person for self-evaluation before seeking a relationship.

“If you want to be with the right person, you need to be the right person,” Richard said. “Also, in the time of singleness, you need to check your heart. I think there’s areas where you need to check your baggage out and see those areas in your life because oftentimes, we’ll go from relationship to relationship and the reality is that they’re not the problem – you are.”

Brittni said: “In the season of being single you’re not only getting to know God, but you are getting to know yourself. And you need to love yourself because if you can’t love yourself and date yourself then why is anyone else going to want to try to love and date you?”

She added, “The wait is worth it. Honor your vow, honor the promise, honor yourself as well because you are worthy to take time off from a relationship to really get the healing that you deserve.”

Brittni and her husband also host the LET’S TALK PURITY series on their Youtube channel.
