God is Real... and so is His enemy!

Raised in fear, abuse and confusion,

Elder Florence Johnson was a confirmed atheist. After years of non-belief she found herself in a battle with forces of evil so terrifying it was like being trapped in a horror movie. But this wasn't Hollywood or television. This was REAL .

Tales of the Supernatural offers Elder Johnson's journey from fear to faith and is a must-read for those who wonder if the supernatural is real. Available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble book stores, Barkey's Spiritual Store (Richmond, VA) or contact Elder Johnson at:  Visit her website:
