Is Living Proof of Godís Love
Daina grew up in Texas and came to California in 1973 to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. She directed all her energy into her career, with doors opening immediately for modeling. Her success began in 1975 when she won "The Most Beautiful Girl in California Contest". She then posed for Playboy Magazine as a centerfold in 1976. This began a series of TV appearances, movies and interviews, and her reputation became widespread in Hollywood.
In Hollywood - the "City of Broken Dreams" - Daina appeared to have it all. She was young and beautiful, a Hollywood starlet just a whisper away from fame and fortune. However, outside of the limelight, her life resembled a tragedy - as she sought love and acceptance in all the wrong places. This caused Daina to spiral into a lifestyle of riches, men, alcohol, drugs, and anything else that would create an illusion of happiness, but deep down Daina was a very lonely broken person. Although she attended church at a very young age, she had never experienced a personal relationship with God.
Then, in 1981, through the help of her sister, she accepted Jesus as her personal savior, but she only cried out to God when she was in trouble. She would go to church on Sunday and by Monday she was living with one foot in God's Kingdom and one foot in the world. With an unsurrendered heart, she was not experiencing the fullness of God's blessing and therefore, remained unfulfilled. This went on for several years. Finally, overwhelmed by the emptiness in her life, Daina cried out to a God she had only worshipped on Sunday. “Lord, let me die in my sleep. I didn’t want to live anymore!” God did not honor Daina’s desperate request. His work with her was just beginning.
In 1986, Daina's life was profoundly impacted with the birth of her son Tyler. Now with the responsibilities of a single parent, her priorities were changing, and even though she began slowly giving up her old lifestyle and seeking the Lord for His plan. Daina was still doing things the same way she had for years therefore growing weary in her walk with Christ. She was still trying to control everything therefore, causing change to be only temporary. She continued working in the entertainment industry and was involved with a rock band called “Blondefire” with fellow Playboy Centerfold Michelle Drake.
In 1994, she and Tyler were baptized together and she was filled with the Holy Spirit. For the first time, she began to really hunger for the Lord. She cried out to God saying, “put me where you want me to be”; she began to constantly read her Bible and started attending church whenever the doors were open. She would cry to Him “Give me new friends, because she had walked away from a wild lifestyle where all her friends did drugs. "It was a very lonely road," as Daina recalls God was stripping her of everything she had put security in. “It was very difficult and painful, I know without a doubt it was the hardest time in my life.” But now, she had a son who depended on her and there was no turning back. She slowly began to realize God was preparing her for His plan.
Then, while in her bedroom, Daina experienced something that she could only describe as a vision of Christ at the foot of her bed. At first, thinking it was a dream, Daina blinked her eyes, but the brightly illuminating figure remained. With tears streaming down her face, she said “Ok, Ok, I know You are real, I know You are real”. At that very moment, she says the Lord spoke to her Spirit and said “When you were lost Daina, I followed you, no matter where you went. But I’m not following you anymore – you’re following Me now because you gave me permission to teach you in the way in which you should go.” Daina felt overwhelmed with the knowledge that God was real and He was in control. Her greatest fear had always been losing control of her life. Since that supernatural visit, Daina’s life is no longer empty and without purpose. She has surrendered completely to the Lord, her life is abundantly filled with the love of the Lord, and He is continuing to fulfill a special and unique purpose for her life. She is no longer pretending - her life represents truth. Not only has "the truth set her free," she is now able to see others set free by the power of God through the prophetic word and prayer.

The Law Of Change
The Bible teaches that everything on earth changes. Sunrise and sunset, night and day, summer and winter: all of these teach us that change is inevitable. The Bible also teaches that God uses change to prepare people's hearts for the kingdom of heaven, just as He uses change to convert a caterpillar to a butterfly.
Key Verses: Romans 12: 1-2 In these verses, Paul advises the Christian converts to "present your bodies [as] a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God.... And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind..."
Change My Heart and Life
1. Will you let God truly change your heart and your life, through faith in Jesus Christ?
2. Think of some specific ways that your old way of thinking needs to be changed into God's way of thinking.
God's Life-Changing Love
We hope this testimony helps you see how God's love can overcome even the most difficult situations. But He doesn't help people overcome just so they can do what they want. Why is that? God's Word tells us that all people are created so that they can glorify God and love Him. But from the very beginning, Adam and Eve's sin broke that intimate relationship when they disobeyed in the Garden of Eden.
Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God has provided the only way to restore that relationship. Jesus said, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me" (John 14:6). Through Jesus, you can have the relationship right now, by committing your life to Jesus and receiving His forgiveness.
How do you talk with God or begin telling Him you want to submit your life to His plan? Start with this simple prayer. "Lord Jesus, I know I'm a sinner. I've done many wrong things and I'm asking You to forgive me. I want You to be the Lord of my life. Please help me to live for You. I believe You paid the price on Calvary for me. I believe You died for my sins and rose again on the third day. Come into my heart today Lord Jesus. I give You my life from this day forward to wash away my sin and lead me into a path of righteousness for Your namesake.
Congratulations! If you prayed this prayer, you need to tell someone about this wonderful decision you've made! Please write or email Daina and tell her about this decision. She will want to know and will encourage you on how to live as a new Christian. This is the most important decision of your life. May every day bring you into a deeper understanding of His love for you!
We give thanks to the God and Father of our
Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you.
