Our faith is often the foundation of how we will order our steps throughout life. Many have given even more focus on their faith walk after seeing the recent outcomes of our global pandemic. Some people were faced with sudden challenges and turmoil that they never experienced before. However, Neet Frazier-Diggs is here with a solution to let you know that God heals all wounds.
Through her debut novel, Hurting People Hurt People But God Heals All Wounds, she is encouraging us all to lean on God and not on our own understanding when faced with adversity. “One day I heard someone say: hurt people hurt people and God began to minister to me about healing,” Neet shares. “I realized that hurt is going to take place in our lives at some point, but how we handle it makes all the difference in the world,” she adds.
Neet’s powerful storytelling captures various characters in their individual scenarios of despair. She eloquently provides the scene while laying out each character’s problem, solution, and beyond. Here’s what Neet Frazier-Diggs shared about her new book, music as an inspiration, and more:
What inspired you to write a new book?
“I would have to say that without a doubt, God inspired me to write my book. I have been writing for a while but I never really expected it to get to this point. Every time I tried to stop, God would not allow me to. He would just keep telling me that there’s more. I didn’t even share it with a lot of people because I never knew if it would really be a book. I really didn’t see how it was going to happen.”
Your book features inspirational songs that helped you through some tough times and through your writing journey. How did these selected songs impact your life?
“I love to listen to music. So many songs could have been chosen for the playlist but I narrowed it down to my greatest hits of inspiration. These are just a few of the songs that inspire me. Music gives me calmness and allows me to meditate on how good God has been to me. I often wish I could really sing because I believe that songs are a way of expressing your inner feelings.”
Self-Care can incorporate many faith-based practices. What self-care practices do you have to help you pause, refuel, and listen to God?
“Every day I try to take time with God first thing in the morning. I realize that in order to dismiss the negative thoughts and feelings, I must take time to be with Him first. I didn’t always do this and I would have more negative thoughts throughout my day. Sometimes it took things going wrong throughout the day for me to pause and realize that God was trying to get my attention.”
