Big Announcement. Big Changes. Big Vision.

We are excited to announce a bit of restructuring here at DGM. Effective immediately, Dirty Girls Ministries is now a sub-ministry/division of our new organization for women: WHOLE Women Ministries (WWM).

Expanding our branding has been something we have prayed about doing for a couple of years now, but it’s always come down to timing. It’s no secret that the term “dirty girls” has a way of limiting us in some circles and keeps us out of some doors. And that’s okay. But it is our hope that WWM will allow us to communicate our same message of hope and freedom for women without worrying about how our name may be received (or not received at all).

WHOLEness is for all women. Not just for those who struggle porn/sex addiction.

Dirty Girls will continue to provide women with help, hope and healing from pornography and sexual addiction and will function under the same name, in the same place. In fact, nothing much about Dirty Girls has really changed. We will continue to offer all of our programs, trainings, groups and community and will develop new ones. And for now will continue to be our main ministry focus.

But the new umbrella of WWM will enable us to move forward with other ministry endeavors outside of the box of porn/sex addiction. We will be free to add other ministry areas into the mix when and as God allows, without muddying up Dirty Girls’ focus. We will continue to brainstorm and develop what this will all look like and keep you informed. We welcome your suggestions for what our potential new ministry areas might be and we will prayerfully consider them.

For example, our WHOLE Women’s Conference is bigger than the porn/sex issue. When God gaves me the vision and biblical mandate for WHOLE Women’s Conference (“Daughter, your faith has made you WHOLE.” Mark 5:34), I believe He was giving me the vision for this new ministry. Jesus in the business of healing and restoring women … and revealing their kingdom purpose to them. And that, through Him, is what WWM desires to do as well.

And more thing for now… WHOLE Women’s Conference will also be receiving a bit of a facelift. WHOLE 2013 will be one-day event held exclusively online and will be free of charge to all women who wish to attend. We are excited to get the details of this put together a bit more and will provide you with a date very soon. Keep an eye out for our next update on this.

We hope you are as excited about these changes as we are and will stick with us as we navigate through them. We certainly don’t have it all together, but we have a God who does and we are prayerfully taking His lead on all of this.

Questions? Comments? Concerns? We welcome them in the comment section below or send us a message. We will have a WWM website up very soon as well.

And if you have been blessed by our ministry this year or know someone who has, please think of us with a Thanksgiving offering by donating, here. We value every cent the Lord provides through the generosity of people like you. Tax-deductible in the United States.

With thanks and hope,
Crystal Renaud

    Just a marketing note… In the WWM logo, not enough contrast between the burgundy and black, font too thin. Or give the word ‘women’ a thin white outline, drop shadow. (Sorry, can’t help myself…).

    1. I don’t find it hard to read, but I’ve added a small drop shadow behind “Women” and I think it helps. Thanks for your feedback.

    2. I agree with terry. There’s not a lot of contrast with the purple and brown…so a thicker font for “women” may help it not get lost.

  2. this is really exciting, crystal! love seeing the growth and the opportunities for even more expansion… so so good!

    LOVE THIS. You are doing something AMAZING in the lives of women. You go girl.

  4. I love it and totally agree that it will help get you in doors. Sometimes I’m hesitant to like or share stuff on my FB because of the name. What you do is so very important! Keep up the good work!

    Praying for good things through the changes being made!

    As someone with limited vision and inability to see things without high contrast, I agree with the logo concerns. If you have made a change to the logo on this page, it’s still too dark to read the word Women. I’m not sure what a drop shadow is, but could a white outline be added to the word? Or the background be grey/lightened? Or the font be made wider?
