From Porn Star to Pastor, Joshua Broome Tells His Testimony

by | Nov 15, 2021 | Man

Have you ever been in a situation and wondered, How did I get here? That’s exactly what Joshua Broome thought when he was at the height of fame in the adult film industry. He tells some of his story on the Everyday Discernment Podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network.

Just like a snowball rolling down a hill that gains momentum and speed as it gathers more snow, sin can be like that too. A “discernment snowball” consists of small decision after small decision that leads you quickly down either a path of blessing or a path of negative consequences, depending on if you are following God’s plan or not.

Joshua Broome never intended to star in the adult film industry; however, one small decision after another and he found himself in too deep. It wasn’t until a bank teller called him by his real name and asked him if he was ok that he had the courage to leave the industry completely.

Joshua gives God the glory for redeeming his story and the power of relationships in his life from people who never gave up on him. This includes his now wife, who never judged him for his past but helped push him forward to his future.

Joshua wants everyone to know that you are never too far gone or too stuck in sin for the power of God to not reach you. There is hope and his name is Jesus. For more on Joshua’s story, be sure to listen to the full episode of the Everyday Discernment Podcast.

Also, my new book, Eyes on Jesus: A 90-Day Discernment Devotional, is available now and has been endorsed by Dr. Steve Greene. Use this book as a part of your quiet time with God and make better daily decisions that honors Him! {eoa}
