In her insightful Christian non-fiction work, God's Grace, Not My Disgrace, Claudette Inglis shares her experiences with abuse, hurt, and pain and discusses how her faith has guided her toward healing. She explains how God inspired her to start writing, which began her healing process. Inglis was raised by her grandmother, whose faith, compassion, and diligence inspired her. She endured continued sexual molestation from a family friend from age five, and at nine, she suffered physical abuse from the same man. The traumatizing experiences left her feeling alone and helpless. She continuously wondered whether those around her knew about the pain she carried within. After suffering a stroke in 2001, she began writing. Through the encouragement of a young woman she had met, she decided to sign up for counseling classes.
Through her story, Claudette Inglis encourages those who have experienced abuse to speak up and remember that their voices and experiences matter. Her journey is inspiring and shows that it is possible to harness one’s painful past to help and encourage others on their healing journeys. I loved that the work is peppered with invaluable advice about different topics, including spiritual growth, building strong family ties, handling crises, prioritizing what is most important, and more. I appreciated how candid the accounts were, making the work authentic and easy to relate to. Through Christian teachings and her encouraging journey of faith, Claudette Inglis explains that challenges and pain do not have to define us. In her inspiring work, God's Grace, Not My Disgrace, she explores applicable themes about healing, family, facing difficulties, and growing in faith.
