Writing the book wasn't easy, and Byington still encounters resistance from the most formidable of opponents. "I know it's Lucifer. I know it's his minions," Byington tells Allred, who at no point evinces skepticism, even as she reports that Jenny Hill
escaped sacrifice by a miraculous intervention -- a light so bright that those performing the ceremony to take her life after raping, desecrating and torturing, could not raise their black sword against her."The book has become Byington's mission," writes Allred, "to bring forth the truth and save innocents...."
Surviving Satan Worship: Author helps victims heal

SARATOGA SPRINGS -- Judy Byington lives in a pleasant, respectable neighborhood and by all appearances could be in your LDS Church ward Relief Society presidency.
Maybe she is, but the well-groomed, quiet, retired therapist also is an authority on a topic most in Happy Valley would rather not discuss -- evil. She specializes in helping others win an eternal battle against covens of the devil.
Byington is an authority on Satanists, and as a clinical social worker she spent years helping others heal from wounds so deep most would shrink from the task. With the permission of her clients, she has written about one woman's experience of growing up within a coven and surviving. The book is called "Twenty-Two Faces."
"This is a huge breaking story validating the existence of human sacrifices of children in our society," Byington said.
One of few surviving chosen sacrifices from a Black Temple ceremony, Jenny Hill is the subject of Byington's book "Twenty-Two Faces," published by Tate Publishing. Byington will begin appearing at book signing events of her newly released work about Hill on Aug. 4 from 2 to 4 p.m. at Barnes & Noble in Salt Lake City, 1104 E. 2100 South.
The work does not make for light reading.
"Secret ceremonies in which malevolent men and women cloaked in hooded robes, hiding behind painted faces and chanting demonic incantations while inflicting sadistic wounds on innocent children lying on makeshift altars, or tied to inverted crosses, sounds like the stuff of which B-grade horror movies are made," Byington writes in closing her 428-page work. "Some think amoral religious cults only populate the world of 'Rosemary's Baby,' but don't exist in real life. Or do they? Ask Jenny Hill."
"Ritual abuse was taken seriously and investigated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to which Jenny belongs," said Dr. Colin Ross in the foreword. He founded the Colin Ross Institute for Psychological Trauma in Dallas.
"Hundreds of survivors have been found," Ross said. " 'Twenty-Two Faces' encourages the reader to focus on the pain, conflict and healing in Jenny's life in order to better understand the anguish of people who suffer these same types of devastating ordeals. Her biography gives realistic hope to those thousands so plagued and fragmented by this same gruesome, profound emotional shock."
While others are healing, Byington claims others remain at the mercy of the dark priests of hell. Satan worshippers live in Happy Valley and elsewhere in Utah, according to the author.
They have secret combinations. They live in duplicity. They torture and sacrifice the innocent. They give birth in secret so the babies they sacrifice have no birth certificate record. They take the time to learn speaking Latin backwards from what is called the Black Bible.
And they foster fear.
Satanic mind control programming helped create 22 personalities -- called disassociation -- in Hill as a young child. Brutal and honest, each personality comes forth and discloses secrets it has kept to protect the child within Hill on into adulthood.
Through her ordeals she placed faith in a good and holy being, kept journals from an early age and escaped sacrifice by a miraculous intervention -- a light so bright that those performing the ceremony to take her life after raping, desecrating and torturing, could not raise their black sword against her.
The book has become Byington's mission to bring forth the truth and save innocents.
Byington said she would tell Hill what to write about for the next chapter from her outline. Hill would draw on her past journals and her other personalities would contribute.
"As she would write out the chapter her alters would take over and her alters would give their memories of an experience," Byington said. "You know, write out what happened. So we have very detailed chapters in there."
The birth of "Twenty-Two Faces" wasn't easy. There have been struggles, so much so that the author and Hill came to expect interference.
"I know it's Lucifer," Byington said. "I know it's his minions. I could go on and on for hours about experiences Jenny and I have had in writing this book, that have happened."
"I remember back when Jenny and I started to write her biography. At the time I had given myself a pseudonym to put as the author," Byington said. "Then Jenny told me she wanted her real name on the book. She had pure faith that Heavenly Father wanted this story told. He would protect her and she would be exposing the truth, not hiding behind it."
She said she decided that if Hill, who at age 5 had been forced to kill a tiny baby with a knife, raped by her father every Thursday for years, tortured, mind controlled, witnessed the murder of an unknown child, and threatened with death if she ever told anyone -- she could be brave enough to use her real name on the book, too.
Byington turned the cover page of the book "Twenty-Two Faces" over to Hill who dedicated the work to the child she witnessed tortured and murdered.
"That her cries will at last be heard and may those screams give children of abuse courage to break their silence," Hill said.
