A Second Life After Sin

She stopped doing porn but kept dancing and stripping in clubs. Then she met Veitch, whose understanding attitude got her to pay attention. "I've been scared off by [guffaw] some really preachy Christians." she says. After hours of conversation, she says, "Heather knew looking at me: She was like, 'You're ready, I know you're ready.'"

Veitch promises women like Andrews that if they come to church, they'll be welcomed, not judged. So…is Kendra ready to stop dancing?

"I'm ready, but I'm terrified," she says with a laugh. "For me, that's what I've known since I'm 18. It's what pays the bills. That's what provides for me. Honestly, this is maybe the scariest thing I've ever done in my life. But I'm committed to it. And I feel like it's where I'm meant to be."

Veitch agrees. "If the glutton and the cheater and the liar can all walk into church and feel comfy and have a seat," she says, "well, so can the stripper."
