'This book is a must-read for any woman struggling with porn addiction. Alice has learned a lot on her journey, and the wisdom she shares will provide you with tools that will bring you healing and freedom.' Brittni De La Mora, Director of XXXChurch
'Alice knew porn addicted women needed a resource so she wrote Restored. In her book, she vulnerably and bravely shares her personal story of porn addiction, trauma, and recovery. Reading Restored, you will feel welcomed, seen, known, and cherished. Alice's writing is wise and witty. Her supportive words will make you laugh, cry, and be comforted. You'll know you're not alone.' Forest Benedict, LMFT, SATP, Author of Life After Lust: Stories & Strategies for Sex & Pornography Addiction Recovery.
'When women are excluded from the conversation about porn addiction and recovery, they are shamed into silence. This type of shaming has happened far too often in the mental health and addiction treatment field. Bravo to Alice Taylor for breaking through. Though Alice's take on life and recovery is distinctly Christian, all women who struggle with compulsive porn use will find this book both reassuring and useful.' Dr. Robert Weiss, Chief Clinical Officer of Seeking Integrity, author of Sex Addiction 101, Prodependence, and other books.
'Restored is an amazing journey inward, wrought with the wisdom of one whom has travelled the path back to herself, sexually. Alice adds so much to the conversation about women and porn. It's about time we had real advice about these sensitive and timely topics for ourselves, our sisters, and our daughters.' Lacy Alajna Bentley, author and women's recovery coach.
'Untold numbers of women who struggle in silence and shame will clap, "Me, too!" when they read Restored. This raw, hopeful, and honest book is a practical recovery guide that also examines the underlying roots for compulsive pornography use and tackles taboo issues like masturbation with nuance and sensitivity. Restored avoids the rigidity of black-and-white-recovery approaches and goes after a woman's pain-filled heart and her longing for healing. This grace-filled work will resonate with Christian women and with those who struggle to believe in a loving God. I'm so glad to add this terrific resource to my recommendations for female porn and sex addicts!' Marnie C. Ferree, LMFT, CSAT, Founder & Director of Bethesda Workshops, Author of No Stones: Women Redeemed from Sexual Addiction.
'Alice's book offers such a refreshing perspective to the entire porn "addiction" recovery conversation. Her style of writing is forward, blunt, and at times comical but throughout offers deep insight into a topic that has far too long been considered a "male only" problem." Her advice is practical and comes from personal experience which gives it great weight and merit. Not only does her personal journey offer hope to other women in the same situation, but the advice in this book could apply to anyone who seeks freedom from their pornography use.' Carl Thomas Jr., Executive Director/CEO at Live Free Community App.

1. Extremely relatable and relevant. Easy to read and easy to understand.
2. Offers practical, simple action steps and reflection questions for each chapter.
3. Incorporates wisdom from sex addiction experts like Patrick Carnes and Marnie Ferree.
4. Sensitively addresses issues of trauma, intimacy, and from a Christ-centered perspective.
For Christian women who are completely new on the journey of quitting porn, you'll get the basics.
For Christian women who are already familiar with other resourceson quitting porn, you'll see a lot of repetition.
The main strength of Restored is this: it summarizes other available materials and presents them in a way that directly speaks to Christian women who feel alone and trapped in self-hatred because of their struggle with pornography.
If you're a Christian women struggling with porn, reading this book will definitely point you in the right direction!
