rstahley's pictureMy name is Robyn. I am 29 years old. I have been married for 6 years and have a beautiful 3 year old daughter. I am very interested in the paranormal, but lately I have been struggling with my belief in ghosts, since I don't want to believe anything that would contradict my Christianity. I don't want to upset God. However, I know there are other Christians who believe and there are even references to ghosts in the Bible.

My Visit To Waverly Hills on 2008-09-10

I don't know if you are familiar with Waverly Hills, but it is located in Louisville, Kentucky. The building used to be a hospital to help treat Tuberculosis, and is supposed to be one of the most haunted places in America. There is a great website if you want more information on it. It's Waverly Hi...

Night Terrors At 3 am on 2008-08-06

This is my second story on this web site. To be honest, I'm not even completely sure if what I'm about to type was truly a paranormal experience, but I have my theory. My husband and I have been living in the same apartment complex for about two years now. Nothing paranormal has happened. I don't th...

I Think My Daycare Is Haunted on 2008-07-29

I work in a daycare in West Chester, Ohio. The director of the daycare wants us to keep these things on the "down-low," because they are afraid that the parents will pull their children out of the daycare, but I am so interested in everything that has happened that I have to share. The first odd ...

I always think it's humorous when people are nonchalant about ghosts in their home, "Oh, that's just Vic. We just tell him to be quiet." Haha. I don't think I could ever get that comfortable. My cousin had an old woman haunting her home (she died there) and it was the same way. My cousin would yell, "If you want to stay here, you need to be quiet!" Once she adopted a baby, they never heard the ghost again.

First of all, I really enjoyed your story. I think that it's sweet. Also, I also am a Christian. I do believe in ghosts (obviously, since I belong to this site and have posted stories) but I struggle with it too. I mean, as a Christian, I feel that I should think that someone dies and goes to Heaven or Hell... No one should still be here. However, I also believe that there are things that maybe I don't know, only God knows. I always think about the story in the Bible when Jesus walks on water. His disciples think that he's a ghost. Jesus tells them that he's not a ghost... But he never says, "There's no such thing" or "why would you believe in ghosts?" It makes me think that if Jesus' own personal friends and followers believed in ghosts, then maybe the Bible does support that there are indeed ghosts. I understand, however, that this does not aid the evil vs. Good discussion. I don't really want to go into that since I don't have anything to add to it.

Did you guys rent or buy the house? I'm just wondering because (I'm not sure on this) I thought that if a house has a reputation of being haunted, it must be disclosed to the buyer before purchase... But maybe it's only if you ask. Also, I was wondering if you owned the house, because when the new tenants were complaining about the hauntings, if your family sold the house to them, they may have been thinking "thanks a lot for selling us your haunted house." Haha.

I know that a lot of people say, "Why would you sell your haunted house to another family and make them go through it?" BUT what is your other option? Have two house payments? Go bankrupt? What do you do? It might sound crazy, but this is one of my biggest fears about buying a house.

Hello Gleekgirl. What did your mother say about the dark haired woman that you see? Or did you just drop the conversation when she said that her girlfriend was not around? That is very creepy. I wonder where she comes from and what she wants.

This is so sweet! Thank you for sharing. I can't imagine how difficult that must have been for you, but I'm glad that he was there to help you through it.

This is a really creepy story. After everything I've read and heard about Ouija Boards, I will never touch one ever again. I did once when I was 14, and luckily nothing happened.

However, I really don't think that this random spirit/demon really knows the future, or when you will die. Only God knows that. I think it may have just been making things up. You're very lucky that nothing paranormal happened after your session ended, I think.

Very scary story... I hope your friend decides to get out of there! I too found your story difficult to stop reading.
Wow, that's crazy. I wonder if the woman in white was intentionally trying to make you think she was your grandmother, so that you would trust her. I'm glad that you are ok, and I hope things stay calm for you!
Wow, that is very scary! Is this the only time you have experienced a strange occurrence in your room? I know you mentioned that your mother had frequently heard things.
Great story! Your writing had me hooked. I had this feeling you were going to end the story with your friend's dad being dead back there or something, but you still smelled his stinky breath. I'm glad he was okay, though. It was still a scary story. You stayed longer than I would have, that's for sure!

Wow, very well written story. After everything I've heard about ouija boards, I will never use them again. I did once with friends when I was 13 but nothing happened, thank goodness. I wasn't aware of the dangers at that time in my life. It also appears that you are lucky. Others claim that they were unable to get rid of the demons and spirits merely by destroying the board.

It sounds to me like your mom was visiting and maybe she knew that if she turned the fan off, you would know it was her. I'm sorry for your loss, and maybe since your mom's death was unexpected, this was her way of saying goodbye.
I'm sorry for the loss of your beloved pet. I truly believe that dogs can sense things we cannot, and I think Rusty was so protective of you that she payed more attention to the paranormal things she saw. The fact that she wouldn't go into your bedroom is really creepy. That must have been the center of the paranormal activity.

It sounds like this entity either really likes or doesn't like your granddaughter. As LOVEPiNK07 mentioned, I'm curious as to whether or not your granddaughter has heard or seen anything.

I try to imagine what it would be like to live in a haunted house, and I don't think I could handle it. It must be difficult to keep hold of your sanity with all of these scary things going on around you. I wonder if something traumatic happened someone being locked in a room. You said you hear glass breaking and people knocking and trying to get out of doors. It sounds like someone had a bad experience there maybe.

Wow, you definitely did a good job at telling your story. I couldn't help but keep reading...and I'm just curious as to why you didn't return the stone after the priest pulled you aside. Did you not have time or maybe you didn't have the transportation? You know, I was watching a show on, I think, the Travel Channel and it was called Most Haunted Places or something like that, and they had a similar story about an old woman's tomb, where people leave food and gifts for her. I wonder if it's the same place.

Wow, that's creepy. At least you don't live there anymore! And now, you know that it wasn't just your imagination. Others have experienced things as well.

Wow, that's really weird that this in the one and only occurence you've had in your home. Maybe it was just a spirit passing by your home! Creepy!

Is the first paranormal experience your friend has ever had? Or perhaps it was something that followed her from the camp?
I think that may have been one of the clearest EVP's I've ever heard. It really gave me the creeps.
