Consider Athena Dean Holtz’s Own Words
Consumed by Success
Place at the front of your mind this is who Prosecuting attorney Dan Satterberg chose to protect, guide and use to go after Timothy Williams. Though Mr. Williams was never charged with a crime, nor testified in court Prosecuting Dan Satterberg shaped and molded the attack upon WinePress Publishing, Sound Doctrine Church and The Salt Shaker Christian Bookstore located in Enumclaw Washington.
Enumclaw Police Detective Grant McCall was commended by Prosecutor Mark Larson, who had been specifically assigned by Dan Satterberg to protect this conspired hate crime of Athena Dean Holtz and Detective McCall.
Like any evil sociopath, Athena Dean Holtz wallows in gaining attention for herself. Ms. Holtz will testify against herself if it brings attention to herself. Watch out for the tears they arrive on time and in abundance.
Psychologist will inform you that when a person has been hit by a sociopath it is a relentless event because such individuals are not restrained by normal inhibitions.
Charity Trash Bag Fraud
Athena Dean Holtz’s charity trash bag fraud, which was a money laundry, “complicated” scheme appealing to the sympathy of her victims was Mr. Dean’s method of operation when selling book contracts while at Winepress.
It was a full-time job just to keep Ms. Dean on the straight and narrow of ethical business practices. Athena Dean acknowledged this in her last letter before marketing a hate crime to destroy Winepress Publishing and a church. Whatever a person believes about the church or aspects of Winepress Publishing they would be foolish, in the extreme, to let Ms. Dean near their book.
Athena Dean Holtz is married for the fourth time to Pastor Ron Holtz of the Summit Church in Enumclaw Wa. Ms. Holtz, aka, Athena Dean, considers the Christian community “gullible“.
Here Athena Dean Holtz of Redemption Press openly confesses to crimes and King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg uses her to win a trial. The current sad state of the legal system is proof enough of Ms. Dean’s marketing of hatred.
The quotes on this page are taken directly from the book, Consumed By Success, written by Athena Dean in 1996.
Of course, Athena always claims to have changed. But she never does. She keeps repeating the same cycle over and over again.
The point of these quotes, however, is that Sound Doctrine Church did not influence Athena to believe and admit these things. She wrote them herself before she met Timothy or Carla Williams, and more than 5 years before she invited them to move Sound Doctrine Church to Enumclaw.
Athena’s emotional accusations about being “brainwashed” or coerced to sell her business are flagrant lies. “I found that advertising on Christian radio was the ultimate bonanza!…I found the Christian radio audience to be trusting and even gullible.” -Athena Dean Hotlz, Redemption Press
“I found that advertising on Christian radio was the ultimate bonanza! … I found the Christian radio audience to be trusting and even gullible.” (p. 44) – Athena Dean Holtz, Redemption Press
“It became easy for me to use and abuse my relationships in the church to get where I wanted to go.” (p. 42) – Athena Dean Holtz
“I figured that my credibility in ministry would help open the door to attract honest, hard-working Christians into my business. I had the best of intentions and even believed in my heart that the company I represented had a great product and a wonderful opportunity to offer.” (p. 56)
“I can clearly see the deceptive traps I fell into. My way of getting recognition was by making myself indispensable… I had been well-trained to verbally magnify people’s strong points in order to motivate them to increase their sales volume.” (p. 67)
MORE THAN WIVES?
“Some of the men whom I worked with began to need me more than their wives!” (p. 67) Athena Dean Holtz is now on her 4th marriage.*
Athena Dean was always “confessing” that she was lusting, or being lusted after.
Ms. Dean is not married for the 4th time to the pastor of the church that slandered Sound Doctrine Church, commanding that no one who went to his church was to enter the Salt Shaker Christian Bookstore that Detective Grant McCall of the Enumclaw police department testified did not exist.
“I got along pretty well with my peers, but I always had to out-do them, which I’m sure got old for them after a while. I always tried to win – and usually did – in the games we’d play. I had to make sure everyone knew I was the best!” (p. 31)
“If a person didn’t help build my business, I didn’t waste my time building a relationship with him or her. It wasn’t something I consciously thought about, but I had been brainwashed into believing I should pour my life into those who would be successful, because their success would bring me success.” (p. 37)
“When I was steeped in the pursuit of success, I found it very difficult to submit to authority. I did my thing, working 60-70 hours a week, neglecting my family and making major decisions without consulting my husband. I didn’t want anyone to tell me what to do.” (p. 152)
“I was so self-centered and consumed with getting what I wanted, that I couldn’t even see that my husband was crying out for help. I just wasn’t listening.” (p. 33-34)
“My weak points center around my inability to get close to people, as well as allow them to get close to me. Because of this weakness, I can put more importance on projects than on people, with more desire for business than for relationships. I also tend to be very self-centered.” (p. 27)
“How do we withdraw ourselves from subjection to God? We do what we want to do.” (p.150)
GREEDY, SELFISH, CONSUMED BY SUCCESS
“I was held captive – a prisoner of my own grasping and lustful heart. While I thought I was proving my success by the things I had, those things actually had me. I was miserable. Since I had never learned to value relationships, my dreams for my marriage, family and personal life revolved only around having things, not about having anything of lasting value.” (p. 25)
“I knew in my heart I was living an idolatrous life. Money, not Jesus, was my Lord and I had gone too long bowing down and worshipping mammon.” (p. 47)
“While we were all Christians and giving the Lord credit for the success, there was still a lot of pride, arrogance and flesh in control. We were the ‘Dean Team’ and felt superior to the other organizations within the company because we were so righteous and honest.” (p. 62)
“Looking back, I can see how I had used the good motivation of funding the ministry to justify my lust for more of the world. I convinced myself that I was doing a good thing for people. After all, with a lot of money, I could give to missions and help other Christians get out of debt. But in my heart I was far from seeking God’s perfect will for my life.” (p. 42)
WITCHCRAFT AND HARLOTRY?
“Without becoming a high-pressure, arm-twisting kind of salesperson, you can subtly get your customer doing what you want him to do. These gimmicks are nothing less than manipulation and witchcraft.” (p. 126) – Athena Dean Holtz, Redemption Press
“How do we play the harlot? I know when I got involved in network marketing, I was obsessed with thoughts about building an empire and a secure future, dreams for a bigger house, a nicer car, ‘the good life.’ I ran after the opportunity and spent all my resources on learning about it and getting good at it. It was the most important thing in my life. To me it was an idol.” (p. 150)
“I never operated on a budget, I just spent and spent and spent, and somehow always generated enough cash to just keep up with the payments.” (p. 25) – Athena Dean Holtz
“In those days I was still operating with my own brand of ‘creative bookkeeping.‘ I had always ‘robbed Peter to pay Paul,’ and this time it was no different… I operated without a budget so there was never any way to track expenses and know if we were really on target. There’s plenty of money for everything, I thought.” (p. 59) – Athena Dean Holtz, Redemption Press
THE SIGNIFICANCE OF FINANCIAL PROBLEMS
“One Friday morning a disconnect notice arrived for non-payment of the ministry phone bill… God had my attention! I was desperate for an answer… I was sure that God was trying to say something to me. Was it some awful sin I’d committed? … As I began to pray and repent for everything I could possibly think of, God began to show me something totally unrelated to money. He brought to mind my habit of being disrespectful towards my husband… My sarcastic attitude was grieving the Holy Spirit, and it took a financial disaster to get my attention!” (p. 49-50)
“If there’s no business coming in, God is usually trying to get my attention. I’ve learned to say, ‘Lord, what are You saying? What are You trying to tell me?’ There is usually something I need to repent of or some totally unrelated area that he wants me to purify. Somehow, the lack of money always brings me to my knees.” (p. 92-93)
WALKING AWAY FROM A BUSINESS
“Just then I felt the Lord speaking quietly to my heart. Walk away from the business and help Chuck in the ministry. It seemed so clearly from the Lord, but fear immediately set in. I decided that the voice I heard deep in my heart was definitely not God!” (p. 48)
“I knew then that the Lord was calling me to leave the business behind and help my husband in ministry.” (p. 48)
“I was used to doing business with flair and pizazz, being everything to everyone, and being the best of the best. To do what she suggested seemed almost impossible… Letting go of the control I had was frightening, yet as I entertained the thought, I felt a burden role off my shoulders.” (p. 82)
“The Lord just kept reassuring me, Let it go. You have to let it go. Finally, I gave up on being responsible for everyone else and decided to be obedient to what I felt God was showing me I had to do.” (p. 82)
“But I can tell you, when you surrender to Him and make a quality decision to obey, no matter what the consequences, the joy and freedom you will experience will be better than the adrenaline rush of the world’s successes.” (p. 136)
“SOON” REPEATING THE CYCLE
Athena Dean Holtz:
“Soon, the ministry became as much of an idol to me as striving for money and success in business had.” (p. 50)
“After five years in the ministry with limited funds and denying myself luxuries, I was ready to make some money. My direction from the Lord to listen to His voice became a distant memory as the wheels began to turn again.” (p. 53)
“My money-making days seemed a lifetime away, but I quickly reverted back to that old mentality.” (p. 55)
“It was at that moment that I clearly saw the fruit of a vow I made when I was nineteen years old.” (p. 83)
“Consumed By Success – One woman’s searingly honest personal story of misusing relationships for gain.” (back cover)
Prosecutor Dan Satterberg & Athena Dean Holtz
This is who King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg considers of use in the prosecutor’s office.
Think about it a confessed liar, manipulator and thief is just the person King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg wants to help in a trial full of accusations alone.
If you want to get off just go into a Prosecutors Office tell them you are a liar, a con-artist, and ask what you can do for them. After all Athena Dean Holtz book, Consumed by Success told Prosecutor Dan Satterberg exactly that.
However, be warned, God declared a long time ago…”Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness, his upper rooms by injustice,” (Jeremiah 22:13)
The destruction of Winepress Publishing, Salt Shaker Christian Bookstore and Sound Doctrine Church was set into motion by Prosecutor Nicole Weston who, for her boss, Dan Satterberg protected the crimes of Athena Dean Holtz. Prosecutor Nicole Weston pathetically played with her cell phone while Athena Dean Holtz gave her deposition.
Athena Dean Holtz later was directed to get out of the State of Washington and went to the State of Texas during the trial. After the trial Athena Dean Holtz returned to the State of Washington, continued her radio show from Seattle and could now let loose to destroy Winepress Publishing, Sound Doctrine Church, Salt Shaker Christian Bookstore, anything associated with her target of Timothy Williams because Prosecutor Dan Satterberg was through with Ms. Holtz concerning his part of the purse for selfish ambition.
Athena Dean Holtz was found by Prosecutor Dan Satterberg to be very useful. Below is the reward allowed to Athena Dean Holtz.
