Publisher's Description

An eight-year journey through the occult and into freedom

Though Kristine McGuire was raised in a Christian home, at an early age she became fascinated by the occult. At sleepovers she and her friends told fortunes and held séances. As a teenager she was convicted and put all games of mysticism aside. She went to a Christian college and married a Christian man. But despite her decision to follow God, a longing for the occult persisted, leading her to leave her church and husband and to fully embrace witchcraft.
 
Escaping the Cauldron takes you deep inside Kristine’s eight-year journey as a witch, medium, and ghost hunter. Part Bible study, part memoir, it exposes the subtle occult influences that affect us as it reveals how God mercifully delivered her out of the occult altogether and restored her faith and life in Christ.

Author/Artist Review

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm a wife and the mother of two adult daughters in college. I love God with all my heart. It's my passion to honor Him and encourage others through my writing and speaking. I write a blog called Kristine ReMixed and contribute to Positively Feminine. I've written articles for Faithful Devotions;Praise and Coffee Magazine (Autumn 2011); and an essay for Focus on the Family.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  After I recommitted my life to Christ in 2007, I didn't share the story of my eight year occult journey with people. For two years, I watched as the influence of mysticism and the paranormal grew in our society (and within the church). I felt the tug of the Holy Spirit, calling me to respond. My husband suggested I create a blog. I began sharing parts of my story in a section titled Christians and the Occult. Within two months I began receiving emails and phone calls from Christians asking for help. When I asked God what more I should do, the answer was Escaping the Cauldron.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  The book is part memoir. I share information about the occult based on my personal experiences as a witch, medium, and ghost hunter. It's also part Bible study. I share scripture and provide questions for people to "dig deeper" into the topic from a biblical perspective. My hope is this will start a much needed conversation within the church about the occult, it's practices, and what draws people to it in the first place. My prayer is that God will draw people to seek Him--whether they are already a Christian, a prodigal, or never knew Him.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  As I've worked on this project, I've learned how to step out in bold faith, trusting that God will provide what I need as His will is accomplished.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  My sources of inspiration are Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. My favorite authors are Frank Peretti, Ann Voskamp, Tracey Bateman, Mark Batterson, and Beth Moore. My favorite artists are Third Day, Bluetree, Skillet, Family Force Five, Fireflight.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I'm honored for the opportunity to share my story and hope they are blessed by reading it.
