MEDIA ADVISORY, Jan. 29 /Christian Newswire/ -- Just a few hours after receiving an unexpected e-mail, Christian author Sarah Anne Sumpolec was in a car heading to the airport. A sudden cancellation left The Tyra Banks show searching for someone who could bring some “balance” to their upcoming show on “The Lives of Witches”. A producer for the show found an article about Sarah at CBN.com and asked her if she would be willing to come share her story.
“When I was in high school, I was a practicing witch. It wasn’t until college that I became a Christian and came out of that dark world.” Sumpolec said. “The Tyra producers thought my story of coming out of witchcraft, how it lead me to attempt suicide, and my current beliefs about it, was the right balance for their program.” That put Sarah on a plane that night and in L.A. for the taping the next day.
It was a whirlwind experience with limo rides and professional hair and make-up, something this stay at home mom of three doesn’t get very often, or ever. But Sumpolec says that the reason she said yes was not to have a fun weekend jaunt, but it was for the chance to show the Tyra Banks viewers that the world of witchcraft can be a very dangerous choice.
Sumpolec shares her testimony with young adults through an ongoing ministry that encompasses speaking and writing books for teens and twenty-somethings. Her young adult series, Becoming Beka, even features a character that is drawn into the world of witchcraft. She hopes to keep this new generation from the same darkness she found herself in, especially since teens are particularly susceptible to the false claims of witchcraft.
The Tyra Banks Show gave her a much wider audience to share her message since the show averages two million viewers per episode. On Monday, January 29th they’ll hear from six witches, two Satanists and a Christian author who has a different sort of story to tell. Sumpolec says, “It’s always a blessing when we get to share the truth. Even though I was one lone voice, at least those watching will hear about witchcraft from a different angle.”
