I was a porn star.
I was living the unglamorous life in the porn industry...

But she has her own channel on youtube and there are lengthier testimonies, too...like when she speaks at a church in Georgia.
With all the sad and bad news out there, I found this on the 'net and thought people need to be reminded: God is still real, he still can change hearts and lives, and HIS LOVE is what we need to be sharing!
Keep standing for what is right and true, fellow FREEPers! And keep caring for your fellow man! Shelley has found her the people to whom she ministers: you can find yours!
I would be more impressed if she made this turn before turning 35. I mean even if she still wanted to do porn it would have to be some kind of fetish mature stuff or something so its not like she has much of a choice.
God can change lives if you let Him.

LOL — BADA-BOOM!
Do you think she’s lying about how difficult that kind of life is?
Maybe, but we should be happy that she made the turn at all, and as a 57-yr old, I must say that 35 isn't that old, either for porn or for finding God.
I didn't see in the article where it said she changed her life to impress you.
Looks like she turned around quite well and has a nice family. Must be wierd for the kids when/if someone finds out your Mom was a porn queen.
She is one of God's bright, shining trophies of His grace and mercy to a hurting, helpless human being. She will be a testimony to all of creation for all of eternity to the love of Christ and the power He has to rescue people from bondage and slavery to sin into new, changed, victorious lives!
Good one that will leave a mark
The truth will set on free
I think the point he may be making is that she shouldn’t get greater credibility than someone who didn’t screw up the first part of their life. There is something to be said for being disciplined enough to remain on the straight (sorry) and narrow for your whole life.
Glad to hear that she may have gotten herself rehabilitated as redemption’s always a good thing, but I wouldn’t give her any greater credibility (and probably less) than someone that had never been in the business. Regrettably, her previous choice of “employment” will ever cloud the perception that people have of her. Too bad, but choices have consequences, even if you reject those choices at a later date.
I think the point he was making is that she was getting too old to keep doing porn, so she just stumbled into the missionary gig for a new line of work.
"There is something to be said for being disciplined enough to remain on the straight (sorry) and narrow for your whole life."
The Prodigal Son had a brother like that, who became bitter when the wayward brother found his way home. The father told him, "Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found."
"...I wouldnt give her any greater credibility (and probably less) than someone that had never been in the business."
If her conversion is sincere, she probably could care less how much credibility you, I or anyone else gives her, and I would aver that one who has found Christ and personally been rescued from the depths by Him can probably attest to the power of His forgiveness and atonement with far more conviction than one who never had to take that walk.
A lot of girls do that stuff for free. How hard can it be?
Shelly Lubben I would sure change my name if I were her. Could Lubben possibly be her porn name. If she spent that many years as a porn star she must have spent most of her time Lubben.
Your mom is watching.........
I did not find the other poster's comment appropriate. It was, in fact, very un-Christian and less than loving toward one who had found salvation, no matter the age or circumstance.
