Chauntia Williams: Overcoming Fear, Loss, and Traumatic Nightmares

Chauntia Williams is a wife, mom of two little kids, and a leader at her church with a passion for helping women from broken situations know Jesus. While Chauntia grew up going to church and became a Christian at a young age, she started having traumatic nightmares when she was 11 years old. The nightmares continued into her teenage and adult years, and they intensified after the tragic death of her baby girl.

Eventually, she came to understand that they were spiritual attacks. She did all she knew to try to make them stop—praying before bed, sleeping with her Bible, etc—but nothing helped. It wasn’t until earlier this year, when Chauntia had an encounter with God in a Steps to Freedom in Christ Appointment, that everything changed. She was able to resolve the deeper issues underneath her nightmares and experience her first peaceful night’s sleep in 13 years.

On this episode, Chauntia shares her story of finding freedom from traumatic nightmares, fear, unforgiveness, and a distorted view of God and herself. You’ll also hear her talk about how her whole mindset has changed now that she understands her significance and position as God’s child.

Neil Anderson: How Identity in Christ, Repentance, and Spiritual Warfare Shaped Freedom in Christ Ministries
Neil Anderson is the founder of Freedom in Christ Ministries and the best-selling author of books Victory Over the Darkness and The Bondage Breaker. Originally raised on a farm in Minnesota, Neil left a successful aerospace engineering job to go into ministry. As a pastor and later as a seminary professor, Neil noticed a common phenomenon among the people he was serving—even though they were Christians, they kept struggling with the same problems.

This realization led Neil to spend years studying, learning and developing a step-by-step prayer and repentance process called The Steps to Freedom in Christ. It’s designed to help people resolve the root issues in their lives by submitting to God and resisting the Devil.

On this episode, Neil will dive deeper into his story and the story of Freedom in Christ Ministries. You’ll hear about the importance of genuine repentance, the beautiful reality of being a child of God, and why “there’s nothing more critical than to be firmly rooted in Christ.”
