Jenny Weaver is a Spirit-filled worship leader with a prophetic anointing. But she wasn't always filled with the joy of the Lord. At a young age, she turned to witchcraft for a sense of power and control in her abuse-filled life.
"In the dark place of my life that I was in, I didn't see [witchcraft] as a bad thing," she says. "I saw it as a good thing. I thought, Wow, I'm going to make my parents pay for what they've done. I'm going to get the kids back at school. So I began to study the religion of Wicca, and I became a practicing witch at a very young age."
But witchcraft didn't solve Weaver's problems. She struggled with depression, cut her wrists almost every day and fell into a dangerous drug addiction.
Weaver also found that indulging in witchcraft opened the door for scary supernatural encounters. She was able to see into the spirit realm—but not the way Christians do.
"Drugs began to take over and I would see things move in my room," she says. "I would go to open a drawer, and my hand would be almost touching it, and the drawer would open on its own. I would point to something on the wall, and it would fall off the wall. We would be talking about, 'Hey, do you feel that weird spirit?' And all of a sudden, light bulbs would break over our heads."
Fear and addiction became bigger strongholds in Weaver's life until one day, she found herself pregnant and alone in jail. Listen to the interview to find out how God broke through and healed her heart.
