This is the one and only blog with the real story of Justine and Dawson Miller.
What if there was any way at all to delete the site from existence?Even though, you'd need one good hacker but hypothetically...
Bleachrules...I'm sure to delete the site, I'd need a couple million! That would be the pay-off for the webmasters. My contract gave them full rights to the photos and videos. One look at that by any judge and he would rule in their favor.Even if the site was taken down....so many outside sites have photos and viewers have downloaded photos that it really isn't like it would make a huge difference. :-/
I agree Justine,Besides that:It would be an illegal action, a crime, which could be linked to you. You don't want to commit a crime to cover your history.As I am not close to you and I didn't hear about your website. I think people should realize that this is a professional business that targets vulnerable or young people. Quite often these companies maneuver in the modeling business to find their potential victims. And of course they make sure to tell that nobody discovers it. But they do count on that the way they have designed the website. It's a business that makes a lot of money that has it's actions well covered by contracts and a bunch of lawyers. The only thing that you could try and that might be effective: They are suggesting that you are still active in the business. So they still harm your current image and life as you have to prove to people wrong over and over. At the other hand: the judge may state that your blog website has dealt with that. But I don't know the contract and maybe that has been covered also. It wouldn't surprise me for a business that quite often has criminal roots.Good luck Justine.
Justine, have you contacted an attorney on this matter, specifically one well-versed in Canadian contract law? From your description it sounds to me as if the contract was signed under emotional duress. Furthermore, promises were made that were not kept. In the event you moved forward with a lawsuit the likely outcome would be a financial settlement. However, the site would continue to remain live on the Internet until it simply loses popularity because of the lack of updates.
Thank you for sharing this part of your life Justine. It is such a stark reminder of the long and painful consequences of sin. As we all learn, sin takes you further than you ever intended and keeps you there longer than you ever expected.But thankfully you have chosen the path of restoration and righteousness, and I firmly believe you will be blessed because of it.
Well, being a Christian myself and considering the challenges I have faced, life is not about our past mistakes but about how we deal with our lives in the moment. Most people won't know about you unless you tell them about yourself - you don't have to tell people your past unless it is required information for things such as criminal record checks. And the true Christian world is not about what you did in the past but about how you conduct yourself today, overcame, sought forgiving and pushing forward. Professionalism, this rising and dominating system of beliefs is unforgiving, stern and unwilling to understand how people can change. Some or many Christians act in this professional mannerism which is contrary to Christianity. Guilt is seems to overshadow you and this will subside in time. There are probably thousands of churches out there and some will not tolerate your testimony just as they don't mine; however, some will come with an understand and sense of reasoning that is based upon what Christianity is about. It may take a while to find this crowd of good-spirited Christians, but they are out there.
I dont think God is preparing you for a time in your life that you will be alone. Justine his approval, unconditional love and forgiveness are all yours. No looking back,No trying to make up for the past, No trying to be accepted. You are all those things. God is using you in a mighty way. keep going!!!!!!
Justine...where do I even begin?. I know first hand the strain that an addiction to porn puts on any marriage; much less a Christian marriage. Thankfully we have a loving Savior who knows our weaknesses and does provide a way of escape. Having discovered your blog, I am much encouraged that I can overcome this struggle. I truly believe that porn has no place in the life of someone who wants to daily walk with God. And your courage, your willingness to tell your story will have a great impact for HIS Kingdom. the following link is simply a bit of encouragement for you and Damien as you continue to follow God's direction.a video clip from one of my favorite movies, with music that says it all.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYDdprh4zbk
Hi Justine--I usually read your posts, and have responded to a few of them over the past several months. I admire your honesty, candor and consistency in your messages.And I also want to report that I have cut by about 90 percent the amount of time that I spend viewing porn.In retrospect, I recognize that it's such a blatantly selfish pursuit. Not sure that I would have made that admission before finding your blog.So congrats to you for your work, and thanks very much for the glimpse into your life.Best wishes and God's blessings to you and your family,Jim
Justine,You noted at the very end of this video that the website destroyed what little relationship you had left with your mother at that time. Can you expand upon that?Why was your relationship with your mother already deteriorating? And did the website result in your mother TOTALLY severing ties with you? Do you never talk to her anymore? And if so, what was the reason... Was it because of her religious values, embarrassment with her own friends/colleagues over your website, or other issues?If this is too personal of a subject matter, you don't have to respond. I'm just curious since it was so briefly touched on in the video.Thanks for sharing your story.-AK
What did you do with the money you earned? Did you give it to your church of choice?
To all...I am humbled by your remarks. It's such a strange road I'm on, but your encouragements enable it to all make sense again. Just to touch on a few comments/questions....Legal action was thought about and pondered more so at the beginning. It's become pretty much a realization that no legal action would do much good at this point. What's done is done and it wouldn't solve any 'problems'....thousands of pictures would still be out there. It wouldn't even really make a point. So, for now...that's where we stand.Those of you who have decided to change your habits for whatever reason, I commend you. You're seeing the bigger picture - that it's not just people having sex on a camera...and you're not just a man wired a certain way. I hope you take the realizations you've made and continue to make your mind a better place :) About my mom....that topic is a truly deep and long conversation. I can only imagine what she's had to endure as a mother. But to clarify a little...our relationship was already hindered by me and Damien's relationship that she 100% was not supportive of. Regardless, I still felt there was a chance of reconciliaton. Once she found out about the site...it was like any speck of light that was there completely vanished. Our relationship has taken baby steps ever since. The major reason I did the website was for money. Because the money was given to me instantly, before ever making any decisions to stop doing the site, it immediately went to our immediate financial needs.
