From immersion in the occult to immersion in God's saving grace,
Christian recording artist Annie Meadows shares her story of
salvation and transformation.
Annie Meadows has a very compelling and remarkable story. As a
girl she was introduced to the occult through dabbling with the
Ouija board. She also became fascinated with tarot cards and
fortune telling, and later black magic. Annie kept this secret from
her parents, who had no idea how deeply involved she was in the
occult. Although Annie never officially joined a coven, she
was convinced she was destined to become a witch.
Annie's immersion into the occult eventually reached the point
where a series of seminal events led her to open herself up to a
greater source of power -- the power of the Living God. Through her
disillusionment with life, she started to seek after God and find
out what His plan was. When Annie finally encountered Jesus Christ,
it was to be an encounter that she would never forget.
Soon afterwards, the former witch traveled to a remote desert
location with her future husband, Peter, where they burned each and
every occult item she owned. Annie knew, beyond a doubt, that her
life had truly been radically transformed.
With the encouragement of her new pastor, Annie joined her
church's music ministry. Her prior involvement (as a vocalist) in a
Robert Morris Agency's music group demonstrated her vocal talents
and ability to become a successful contemporary Christian music
Over the following years, Annie collaborated with a number of
notable Christian artists such as Jars of Clay, White Heart, Sheila
Walsh, Ruff Taff, Bryan Duncan, Michael O'Brian, Darrell Mansfield,
Rebecca St. James and David Meece. Currently Annie's music
ministry tours the U.S. and the world, sharing the good news of
Jesus Christ. (For some of the highlights on her ministry, visit Faithrunner.org.)
Now during this Halloween season, Annie sees the fall holiday as
a way to reaching teens for Christ. She recently confirmed that
Wicca is considered to be one of the fastest growing religions in
the world. That is why the former witch has produced a Christian
tract entitled, "I was once a Witch -- This is my story."
Meadows story is also chronicled in the newly released book
Amazing Stories of Divine Intervention. The book also
features other remarkable stories of just how far a loving God will
go to reach people with the good news of Jesus Christ.
