Thanks so much for joining Dirty Girls Ministries.
If you haven’t already, please continue on to complete our personal inventory. This inventory is lengthly, but it is important that you answer as many questions thoroughly and as honestly as possible. So begin the inventory when you have time enough to complete it. We must know where we are in order to get to where we want to go.
Below are some helpful tools including the next steps in the S.C.A.R.S. process. Additional tools can also be found under the RESOURCES tab. These include our 90 Days to Wholeness Devotional, The DGM App, recommended books, accountability tools (promo code for Covenant Eyes free for 30 days) and more.
In order, your next step is Confession.
For those of you struggling with an addiction of a sexual nature, you’ve likely never told anyone about your struggles and it is about time that you did. Addiction LOVES isolation. Confession brings light and a sense of community. And it just so happens that a community is exactly what we have here at DGM. As a member of DGM, you soon have access to our free online community consisting of over 2,500 members.
It is recommended that your first post in the community be one of confession–which obviously ties in with this being the second step in the process. The more you put into the community, the more you’ll get out of it. This forum-style gathering is all about relationship building, community building, accountability building…. and of course… healing and freedom. If at any time you need help, go to the Messages section of the community and send a message to Kristen Loney, Community Manager.
The remaining steps are Accountability, Responsibility and Sharing.
For the best insight on how these steps should be accomplished, it is recommended that once you’re in our community, for you to join or begin facilitating a DG Group group to work through Dirty Girls Come Clean. However, for the Accountability step, our Accountability Discussion & Reflection Guide is a great tool for reflecting on your addiction condition with a friend/accountability partner/counselor. More information about how this guide can be used can be found on the guide link itself.
Responsibility is about making direct and indirect amends as it relates to how your addiction has affected other people. And finally, Sharing is allowing God to use your story in a redemptive way through helping other women (again, this could be by facilitating a group, sharing your story at church, etc.). We can never stop sharing our victory stories. To God to the Glory!
