I write ghost stories.
So go ahead. Ask me again.
“What do you do for a living?”
I write ghost stories.
Ah, that felt good. Good to get it off my chest at last.
People usually fall into two camps when they hear my confession. The first group of folks are the paranormal enthusiasts like me. They can range from lightly interested to deeply invested. It's always interesting to speak to people that like the same things that I do. But to say that everyone believes the same thing I do would be rather presumptuous of me. But I'll talk more about that in another blog post.
The second group of people are usually pretty put out. Some because they know I am a follower of Jesus yet I also believe in ghosts. Why that’s a problem for folks, I couldn’t say except their religious leaders have told them that everything that you can’t see is demonic. (Just as a side note: I am into relationship, not religion.)
To the folks that say the Invisible World is the world of demons I say, “Hogwash!” But I know that for most religious folks, it’s a done deal. I won’t change their minds and they won’t change mind.
But you’ve come too late to tell me that I’m wrong. I've had too many encounters and done too much research (80 books) to have such a closed mind. To those people I would say to them read Matthew 10, true disciples of Jesus were given the power over unclean (dead human and demonic) spirits.
If you do the word study using the appropriate reference books like a Strong’s Concordance you'll understand that Jesus was telling the disciples that through his name they had authority over unclean human and demonic spirits. A dead person--one that's not at rest but wandering around looking to get into mischief is an unclean spirit. Some just need help.
I don't know why the church is so against the paranormal when the book that they proclaim to withhold uphold as God's word is full of paranormal activity.
To my mind, the God that saves you through the blood of his own Son is definitely a God who observes the paranormal.
I know I sound all rant-y today but I just wanted to talk about my truth.
For many of you, it will be hard to reconcile the two but to me it's not hard at all. I'm totally comfortable with the journey that I'm on and feel as if it's one lead by God. If you read any of my books you know I don't get preachy or even religious. I write about paranormal investigations and supernatural subjects because they interest me. I'm not afraid because I'm protected.
I write ghost stories not because I'm obsessed with death but because I appreciate life. And I appreciate the lives that have gone before me.
How dare we not remember the dead?
Should we summon them up from there a restful repose? Of course not. No. I don’t summon anyone.
Should we capture them or harm them or disturb them in any sort of way? Absolutely not.
But I don't agree with ignoring or pretending that all of these experiences that people of been having over the decades and centuries are completely fictitious. So why not talk about them? Why not write about them?
I write ghost stories.
That's my truth and I hope you're okay with that. But even if you're not, no hard feelings. But here's my truth—I believe in ghosts and I'm no longer going to hide it.
All my best,
What about you? Do you believe in ghosts? Tell me about it in the comments below. (No arguments, please.)

I completely agree with you! I do not relate myself to any one religion, but I do believe in God, Jesus, spirits and demons. I believe in possessions. I’ve had several personal experiences, with the first being around 9 or so. I woke up in the middle of the night, looked over, and saw my great grandmother rocking in a chair humming her favorite hymn. I called her name, but it was more of a question. She looked up at me, so lovingly, and told me not to worry about anything. She said she was okay. I found at the next day that she had passed away from a stroke. My next experience was 6 years later, waking up and having a conversation with my grandfather who had passed 4 years before that. He was warning me of an accident, but couldn’t give me details. He told me to make sure I walk home with my friend or go a different way. When I saw said friend the next day, she told me she had a nightmare where I got hit by a car and was beheaded. It scared me to my core, so I told her of my experience (it absolutely wasn’t a dream). I walked home with her. We got to the crosswalk behind our school, waited for the green light, and I looked both ways and was about to cross when she screamed, snatched me back and knocked us both into a ditch. There was a drunk driver going way over the speed limit and he ran a red light and hit a car that was turning left at the light. He would have hit and killed me had she not been there to stop me from crossing. Not long after this happened we moved to a new house where I experienced sleep paralysis for the first time. During this sleep paralysis, I saw a shadow figure in my bedroom window. Very ominous feeling. I tried to scream, but no sound would come out and I felt like I was suffocating. That heaviness finally lifted and I screamed and got up and rant to the den where I found my mom. Everything felt sticky. Like I was moving through a sea of molasses. My mom asked me what was wrong and why I was up. I tried to tell her what happened, but she went about dusting and straightening up like she normally did at 4am when she couldn’t sleep. I turned around and notice the tv on. The station was snowy and I tried changing the channel, but everything was snowy and every channel was 6. I stopped, dropped the remote and repeated “I will fear no evil, for the Lord Jesus Christ is with me” over and over until I “fell asleep”. I woke up in the den feeling like I hadn’t slept all night. I have several more experiences (some including my children), but there’s just too much for this comment.
