WATCH: Former Porn Star Discusses Why She Waited Until Marriage to Have Sex with Pastor Husband

Brittni De La Mora, previously known as a porn star, is encouraging women to wait until marriage to have sex with their future spouses.

De La Mora says after becoming a Christian she decided to refrain from sexual activity until marriage and encouraged women to remember that sexual purity always starts with the heart, according to her recent blog post.

Before she found Jesus as her Savior, De La Mora was a rising star in the adult film industry.

She performed in hundreds of films, was named one of Maxim Magazine‘s top 12 female performers in porn and she also placed second in a porn ranking on Playboy TV.

She was also taking in thousands of dollars but God had other plans in store for her life.

Craig Gross’ XXXChurch played a key role in her coming to know Jesus and De La Mora soon left her former lifestyle and lucrative paycheck behind.

“When I first began going to Cornerstone Church of San Diego I had just left the Adult Film Industry, where I had filmed roughly 375 scenes,” she said in her blog.

“Yes, I know, that is a lot. I went into Church so broken and had come to the end of myself. I was so far down in life I had nowhere to look but up. I knew that my way in life was not working. I was almost 26 years old, single, broke, and depressed,” she added.

As she started to learn more about Jesus her mindset began to change.

“As I began reading the Bible, I learned a new way of living. I knew God had given me a second chance at life and I wanted to do whatever I could to do it right this time,” she said.

Not only did she change her heart, but also decided to wait until marriage to have sex.

“I thought, ‘If an ex-porn star could wait to have sex until marriage, then anyone can do it,'” she said. “In Church, I heard so many great stories from women who had bad relationships, they were sexually intimate prior to marriage and fought all the time, but God restored them.”

“Although I love a good restoration story, I did not want that story. I wanted to be able to say, ‘Sexual purity is not easy, but it is possible, and if I can do it, so can you,” she added.
