Holy Lord we love you and lift our voice and hearts to you in praise and adoration. Pour Your Spirit of peace and truth through these pages and into each heart.  Use this to prepare us for protecting our homes and young ones.  Abba, You are the breath which gives us life. Without you there is no life, no reason to live. Thank you for all things, I love you Father. In the wonderful name of Jesus, amen.

Ps 29:11 - The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.

Ps 55:18 He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me.

A quick note here to say my involvement with the occult was before I was saved.

It always horrifies me to hear of Christians reading and speaking of "their birth signs".  I was very young in the LORD when I went to a home Bible meeting.  The lady leading this meeting was a well known evangelist.  At the end of our study she said she was curious about what our "birth signs were".  She asked us to go around the room and tell what our sign was.

I was shocked by this question and then by each lady in turn giving this information to the group. I was next to the last one in the group of about fifteen ladies. When it came to my turn I simply said I was a child of God and had no birth sign!    

We cannot read nor take part in astrology:

Isaiah 47:13-14  Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee. 14 Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves  from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.

Now lets go back to before my salvation:

One day the Ouija board said I was a witch; well this was really exciting and I ran with it. I can’t remember how much money I spent in research books; I even purchased an encyclopedia on witchcraft.  I was determined to learn all I could on the occult and how to use the powers promised to me through this medium.

As I studied and dug into the information I had on witchcraft and demonology, I became more temperamental, and more disgusted with my poor husband.  I remember throwing a beautiful large potted plant at him, it went all over the place, then I stomped out, leaving him to clean it up. There were many senseless arguments and tantrums from me.

I began getting allot of attention from other men, and I loved it.  I was sinking deeper and deeper into the pit of despair and darkness.  I would look at Christians with loathing, “knowing” they were just jealous of my freedom.  I loved setting them up for a fall. I was thrilled when I was able to make Christians so angry they'd loose their tempers. This was a victory for my sin sick soul; or so I thought.

Never argue your case for getting saved or anything else for that matter.  This is a thrill to the demonic. They love to see Christians fall on their faces.  Explain to them calmly, but never under any circumstances allow them to get you to lose your temper, walk away before anger rises.  They are blind and need our love and understanding, not our anger.

Prov 1:10 My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.

Prov 16:29 A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into the way that is not good


Most families celebrate Halloween as a good innocent fun holiday.  Again this is not innocent, but it is the most holy of demonic holidays.  It’s seeped in witchcraft. If you'd like information on this I will be happy to send it, just email me..


As time went on I began making plans to leave Dave and have a "good life" of my own.  I went to work for a photographer, which just happened to be a Christian.  He was a nice guy and we even had some good discussions on God and life in general.

One day out of the blue my employer asked me if I believed in God. I never doubted there was a God; I just didn’t want anything to do with him. I answered yes I believe he is real. His response to me was, “then why don’t you act like it?” 

All of a sudden I felt hot and my head was full and my heart was going nuts on me. I wanted to run away. I had strong thoughts of killing myself. 

I went to a Ruthie's house [a dear friend].  Ruthie called her pastor and after three hours, and much abuse from me towards this dear young man of God, I was saved.  I knew nothing of the Bible, but I kept saying to him, this is my last chance to get saved; I knew it.  The Lord was telling me this even if I didn’t know the Word.

It was a few weeks later when out in the garage one night while doing laundry, I felt a strong fear touch me.  I heard threatening words being spoken in my ear, as a terror settled on me. The desire to kill myself was almost more then I could resist. Terrified I ran into the house and called Ruthie to help me.

She took me to a Pastors home and there I did receive help.

Ruth told me later that I really frightened her, my voice wasn’t my own but much deeper and I looked frenzied. She felt a bad presence around me as well.

The Lord took care of me and I was set free.  Our Heavenly Father is so loving and wonderful. He never lets His children down. Glory to God.

It took quite a while for me to put aside the things I had learned on the occult. Not only did I renounce them but then I had to forget all I had learned on the occult. My husband and I burned all the books I had, and we recited our wedding vows again, shortly after he was saved a few months after I was.

For those of you not having read my testimony in the
Beauty for Ashes on the home page, we have a very good marriage and I am deeply in love with our LORD. But this has been a real struggle at times, and the enemy did not let me go graciously.


It was about twenty years ago, I had just begun to speak in the churches.  At this time we were living in a small mobile home in the country in the state of Missouri.  We had been at church and the Lord had used me to speak from the pulpit and I was thrilled.

When we arrived home and got out of the car, we saw our home was completely covered in spider webs and spiders!  I need to say here, that at that time I had a real phobia of spiders.

My husband made a way for our daughter and me to get into the house while he took care of those horrible spiders.  It was rather amazing as well that we had a large can of spray for Dave to use. 
We were terribly broke at that time and had nothing extra even bug spray.  But again, the LORD God is a faithful Father to His children.

I was near hysteria over this; Dee was calm since spiders didn’t traumatize her like they did me.
This happened twice! The next time while Dee and I were in our home, she and I went to war rebuking the occult curses being sent to us.  This never happened again.  To break curses please click here and learn how:  CURSES


Rev 18:23-24 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth

In the Greek Sorcery is “pharmakia” it’s meaning: primarily signifies “the use of medicine, drugs, spells; then poisoning; then sorcery… witchcraft. 
Also “
magia ” the magic art
And “
mageuo” to practice magic.

The Word says this will be wide spread in the last days and it is.   

TV is rabid with witchcraft and the demonic.  Not only in the nude and sexually explicit scenes being shown today, but the open acceptance of the occult.  We see horror movies of demons playing with children through dolls, and little fluffy toys. Not to mention the demonic movies candidly being advertised as such. 

There are demonic forces attached to the horror movies and the music our teens listen to. This is all mind control, which is witchcraft.  As we watch and listen to the things of Satan, we are opened to receive his spirits into our lives.

Look around and see the acceptance of the “White Witch”, as well as the "Wicca’s".  They are all a part of satanic witchcraft!  They practice spells and incantations, which is demonic.  There is no such thing as a "white" witch, the LORD condemns them all.

It’s shown as fun and innocent in our schools to practice the art of magic. This is not fun but witchcraft.

Look at the Harry Potter books. It teaches our children to cast spells and use the art of witchcraft. There is a spell on this group of novels enticing our young to desire them. Many of our pastors and Christian leaders are indorsing these books of Satan, not knowing they are being used to bring destruction on our children. There is a strong spirit of delusion and deception upon these books.

Drugs are a major part of our society today.  Not only illegal drugs but the "medical" drugs as well.  It's too easy today to go to a doctor and have him prescribe a medication that will alter the mind and emotions. Isn't this all a type of mind control?  How many people do you know that are on an antidepressant?  I know there are biological reasons for some people to be on them, but not everyone has a medical reason for using them.
