ABOUT THE BOOK
We’ve all had moments in our lives when our faith is being challenged. Perhaps you’re trusting and believing God for something and the manifestation of it feels like it’s a lifetime away. This transforming story of triumph, victory, and God’s relentless grace is not without setbacks and disappointments. Author, Dr. Debra Ignont takes us on a self-revealing journey as she uncovers the underlying reasons of low self-esteem and rejection that has plagued her faith for decades. Debra helps readers connect by sharing her non-public journey of broken relationships, but also her journey to redemption and freedom. A beautiful aspect of this book is that it reminds readers of the extraordinary path we each must take to reach our own promised land.
The negative body image and height insecurities were planted in my adolescent years. I was always teased because of my weight and height. It began in my Junior High years and continued into my adulthood. I was tall and really skinny until my sophomore year in High School (I will explain this transformation in a later chapter). I was also somewhat shy. The kids would call me all kinds of names such as bean pole, skinny Minnie, skyscraper, etc. But to come home and have my dad comment on my weight would send me over the edge.
However, my intent in giving my number to him, I believe, was so I could hear him validate me some more. This was where the insecurities that are never addressed will get you trapped in some mess. Needless to say, I don’t believe he intended to ever give me rides to school, but instead give me rides emotionally and physically after school, if you know what I mean.
Crazy how the enemy can have your moral compass all screwed up. Although I ended things,
he wanted to keep them going. The only righteous thing to do was to walk away, and I did just that. In my warped sense of accomplishment, I was sure God was pleased by my walking away and I didn’t think about how I disappointed God yet again by committing adultery.
How has being published changed your life?
It has brought me out of my comfort zone. I was comfortable in the background and now I am speaking in public and on social media without fear. I fill fulfilled completing the mandate God has blessed me with.
What advice would you give to a beginning author?
Start at the beginning. I hear so many say they don’t know where to begin.
Tell us about (What Do You Do When Your Faith is Unsure? My Journey of Singleness to Intimacy)
This is my story of triumph, victory, and God’s relentless grace despite many setbacks and disappointments on my journey to find a husband. I take the reader on a self-revealing journey while I uncover the underlying reasons for low self-esteem and rejection that have plagued my faith for decades.
Is there one particular message or “moral of the story” you hope readers walk away with?
Yes. Do not give up on God. What you go through in life is not by happenstance. God has a purpose for everything. Once we identify what that is, the trials and tribulations you went through will make sense.
