The Grace Spot was founded in 2015 to break the stigma surrounding women who struggle with pornography, and to provide practical advice on the road to recovery.
It is the only ministry of its kind in Australia. With financial support, it has the potential to thrive and change the culture surrounding female sexuality and addiction.
At the end of this semester, I will be finishing my studies in order to dedicate myself full time to TGS. There are great things ahead, and I need your support more than ever. These donations will be the sole funding for the ministry.
*What will my financial gift be used for?
With the money raised, I intend to attend the Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Global Summit in Washington D.C in April 2018. Costs include registration, flights & accommodation. Here I will network with likeminded people from around the world.
Your gift will also contribute to a professional website re-design, logo update and promotional products.
Ongoing costs associated with maintaining the website and ministry include registrations for domain names, custom emails and ABN fees. There are also printing costs related to running workshops and promotional posters.
Travel costs are also included in this funding appeal, I regularly attend interstate conferences to keep up to date with the latest pornography and sexual recovery findings. The next conference is in Melbourne early 2018.
Please consider giving, and share this worthy cause with your friends and family.
I would be eternally grateful for your financial support. Reaching our $10,000 goal will mean TGS can grow and have more opportunities to show and tell women 'you are not alone!'
God is changing lives and relieving shame through this work, and there are so many more women it can touch, but only with your help. Be part of something incredible.
What has The Grace Spot acheived so far?
In the two years TGS has existed, I have made connections with some of the big players in this field, notably, I was invited to contribute as a blogger for XXXChurch.com which I continue to do.
I have attended a number of conferences and symposiums all over Australia, networking with some very specialised persons.
I have travelled to Hobart as part of the Disciple TAS 2017 conference as a speaker and workshop leader.
I have engaged with the topic of female porn use on live radio with Liz Walker (Culture Reframed & Youth Wellbeing Project)
I have run workshops at Youthworks College and Year 13 Gap year, spoken at youthgroups, to church leaders and young women at a number of events.
Many blogs have been written, shared and read by people all over the world.
I have met one on one and in groups with women who personally struggle with sexual addiction or similar intimacy disorders.
I am in the process of writing an Ebook guide on recovery for women.
There is so much more to do. Please give generously and be part of global change for women.
*As well as one off donations, I am looking for regular donors to support the ongoing work of TGS. I'd love for you to partner with me in this unique way, no matter how small or large your regular donation is. Contact me for more details.
