Philadelphia native Eanya Prout gave her life to Christ at the age of twenty one after being raised in the Philadelphia foster care system for thirteen years. By that time she had two children and soon to have her last son at twenty three. Naïve, wounded but determined, Eanya forged her way through various forms of abuse to grow in Christ. She now shares her life and God's ways with others and desires the Holy Spirit to use her to teach, speak and write for those who want deliverance in their soul.
In 2000, Eanya heard the Holy Spirit speak these words: “Now go, write it before them in a tablet, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever.” - Isaiah 30:8. Her first book, Lady of Grace, is written to heal and deliver women from abuse. Not only does she share many events from her life of abuse, but she details the processes God used to deliver her. Her second book, Built on the Rock, Eanya provides fundamental stepping stones for new Christians to help them build a strong foundation in Christ Jesus. Her third book, Harlot - Deliverance from Demonic Sexual Addiction, Eanya teaches the spiritual aspect of sexual addiction, its operations and how to be free.
In her latest book, Church Games - Identifying Tactics used in Church that Prevent Spiritual Growth, Eanya reveals six games that trap Christians from growing in the Faith. This book is not only written to heal Christians, but to bring the local churches back into alignment with God’s perfect will.
The Body of Christ is in need of true, spiritual revival. False doctrines such as the Prosperity Gospel has made its way into the hearts of leaders and laypeople alike, causing them to plummet into an abyss of greed and spiritual decay. The process of developing godly relationships has been tainted with a twisted version of submission while warped mentoring techniques has lured unwitting souls from grace to legalism. Idol worship is at an all time high. Politics has kicked its way into pulpit. The fear of Lord is mocked as societal trends take its place. Leaders are no longer servants, they're celebrities. Members are complacent and apathetic about their spiritual lives.
What's happening to the local church and why is there no cry of repentance?
In Church Games, Eanya reveals the tactics used to keep Christians from growing in the Faith. She explains
how people and the Holy Scriptures have been manipulated to pervert true spiritual principles such as:
Prosperity, Submission, Mentoring, Spiritual Parenting, and more! Eanya reveals the true meaning of these processes and relationships while encouraging you to grow in grace and truth. It's God's desire that you
grow unhindered by the sinister tactics of the Enemy. You don't have to be a pawn in the game if you
don't want to. After reading Church Games, you can be free!

or turn her into an enchanted creature? The gem master hopes to rule Lana's world next and
already has plans in motion. Lana is determined to escape from the dungeon, but then what?
She has two potential allies with gem powers, and she's afraid of both. But with two worlds
in danger, and time running out, she may have to trust them.
