Sugar, You are No Longer Invited to My Party

Sugar, You are No Longer Invited to My Party






Lord have mercy, I am on a food journey. Every single particle of my being does NOT want to share my journey with you. But. I know that I am not that weird. So, I will just take a deep breath and spill it. Like most people, I love food. I love to bake. I love the smell of rosemary bread in the oven. I love million dollar cookies, a sexy cousin of the plain chocolate chip cookie. I love…

The Anti-Porn Movement: THE INVITATION

The Anti-Porn Movement: THE INVITATION






My name is Lori Doerneman. I am a wife of one and mother to eight. I just wrote a six-part series on “How to Get out of Porn.” Today I want to finish those thoughts with an INVITATION for YOU. First, you gotta know that when I started understanding that pornography was a problem for most red-blooded people, I got a little depressed. I wanted to be part of the solution but I realized that pornography, for most people, was…

Get out of Porn, Part 6: Healing

Get out of Porn, Part 6: Healing






This post is intended for mature readers over the age of 14. Please and thank you. This series began as a follow-up to a talk my adult son, Eric, and I gave at K-State. We had forty-five minutes to talk about the plague of pornography. That was just enough time to sketch the problem. When I returned home, I wanted to give the students more. So this six-part series has been a way to continue that conversation. As I wrap…

Get Out of Porn, Part 3: Love vs Lust

Get Out of Porn, Part 3: Love vs Lust






I was talking to one of my favorite priests about the differences between love and lust. I asked him point blank, “So, a teenager is usually full of hormones and sometimes they get so hot they almost self-combust. What does choosing real love over lust get them?” He quietly replied, “The Cross.” I was silent for a second. Truthfully, I wanted a better answer. “What do you mean, they will get the cross?” “Lori, self-sacrifice is about learning how to love…

Get Out of Porn, Part 2: The Emotional Side






This post is intended for high school and college-aged students and is not suitable for children under the age of 14. Thank you.

I say “touch upon” because there are many dimensions and I am going to focus on just one, plus I will discuss the BEST PART of leaving porn.

Get Out of Porn: The Introduction

Get Out of Porn: The Introduction






I love teenagers. I love young adults. I love them. SO MUCH. I love the ideal of perfect purity but I also understand the broken and the messy of our lives. I know that God’s grace is found in the middle of the chaos and I know that porn is a massive chaos. SO let’s just dive in, shall we? I know this will most likely be shared, so let me introduce myself. GREETINGS! My name is Lori Doerneman. I…

Whole 30 Journey Week Four

Whole 30 Journey Week Four






I am not a structured person nor am I a disciplined person. I don’t even hang out with people like that. So when I decided (sort of on a whim) to do Whole 30 on January 1, no one was more surprised than me. For those of you that do not know, “Whole 30” is a program to reset our inner buttons regarding food. It is designed to fine tune our emotional as well as physical selves. There is structure…
