“I will not be engaging or soliciting myself anymore or giving any of my beings to anyone further than what I have done,” Hayley said.

“Finding faith” has been the “best thing to happen” for MAFS‘ Hayley Vernon

Taking to Instagram on June 16, Hayley said that “every inch of [her] life has changed for the better” since embarking on her spiritual journey.

“Yesterday I was born again in my faith making a public declaration to the outside world based on the inward transformation I have experienced through finding Christ,” she penned.

“Finding my faith has given me a firmer foundation to live my life on. It’s absolutely by far been the best thing that has happened to me. I would have called you crazy if six months ago you would have said I’d be here.”

Hayley concluded: “But truth be told there has not been one negative only positive areas of improvement — has letting go and being challenged been easy — nope — have I come out better for it? Absolutely.”

Hayley Vernon says “glamour” of sex industry is “not worth the mental anguish”

In a statement to Yahoo Lifestyle about her recent path change, Hayley explained she started “leaning” into her faith several years ago.

“For me, the spiritual journey started a few years back and I’d say over the past two years I was leaning more into my faith and pulling away from modern spirituality,” she explained.

“I realised that doing life my way wasn’t working — the things and the life I had got me what I wanted in regards to material possessions but over time it continued to take away from me at an unseen level.”

As for the adult industry, Hayley said she “[does] not recommend it for any woman”.

“This has been something I have said over the years of doing it when asked on podcasts and by women in my DMs,” she confessed.

“The glamour is not worth the isolation, the mental anguish and the negativity that follows that life.”

Adding that “every aspect of [her] life has got better” Hayley said she’s “at peace” and has “let go of a lot”.

“I’m learning how to be the woman I was before MAFS, before trying to be someone I wasn’t in the public eye merely to just survive all the bullsh*t that came with the TV show.”
