From the Wilderness to the Narrow Path: A Journey of Surrender and Course Correction (Author Interview)

From the Wilderness to the Narrow Path looks like a great book.  What can you tell us about it?

I wrote and published this book in less than three months. The book is about my spiritual journey, specifically my walk with God – so this journey has been entirely Spirit-led. I share my story and the details of what led me into a full relationship with God and I share steps that I believe are the foundation for anyone who is searching to deepen their relationship with God.


What type of reader did you write the book for?

I think most authors would love their book to be for everyone, but I understand this is not how life works. My book is for people who believe there is a God but have been so misled by church and religion that they stepped away from it and only consider themselves to be spiritual because they don’t trust churches and religion. It’s for people who believe in God but are questioning why they don’t have the things they should have according to God’s Word, the Bible. It’s for people who don’t know what to believe and are searching for the right path for their journey. It’s for people who see that we have been conditioned and programmed to accept certain belief systems and operate according to what the world says but feel no peace in operating along with the world’s ways.


What do you hope readers will get out of reading your book?

I hope after reading my book, the reader will truly understand what a relationship with God looks like, and that they will study God’s Word for themselves. I hope they will have the courage to break free from the conditioning and programming of the world and simply do what Jesus instructed us to do - repent and seek God’s Kingdom and His righteousness. As a result of seeking, they will experience a more fulfilling life and understand more about their purpose for being here in this world.

I also created a companion journal with writing prompts for the reader to write about their own journey. I think it’s an excellent tool for anyone searching for the narrow path.


How did you come up with the title for the book?

I feel like the Holy Spirit downloaded it to me - I woke up one morning and the title came to me. It perfectly describes my journey.


What trends do you see in your topic and where do you think your book fits in?

I think everyone is searching. There are things happening in the world, in our lives, and all around us that have caused more stress and anxiety than ever before. People are searching for peace. There are so many paths, and there’s so much deception in the world that it’s easy to go down the wrong path.

My book is an introduction to the foundation I believe is necessary to find the peace that people are looking for and it is based on my personal journey. Religion has done so much damage. The moment you say the name “Jesus,” many people turn away and want nothing to do with it because of what they may have experienced in a church or what they’ve seen others go through.

I want people to look again at Jesus and at the Bible - but through a different lens. One that is not clouded by what this world says but is clear because the journey will be Spirit-led.


Were there experiences in your personal life or career that came in handy when writing this book?

There were multiple experiences in both my personal life and career that not only came in handy but were the catalysts that led me to write this book.


What section did you have the most fun writing?

This may sound crazy, but everything happened so quickly that I don’t remember writing my book. I remember being led by the Holy Spirit to do so and understanding that it would be published within three months, but it was a whirlwind, and it was all pretty fun!


Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing From the Wilderness to the Narrow Path?

The chapter titled, “Hello My Name is Chastity Dawn.” I wanted to write this book but didn’t consider how much of my personal business I would need to share in order to tell my story authentically.


What do you like to do when not writing?

I enjoy learning and going deeper in my spiritual journey, but I also love watching all types of shows on various online streaming platforms. I enjoy a wide variety of genres and will watch anything from teenage coming-of-age shows to comedy and science fiction. I also love music and listen to several genres, but classic Hip Hop and R&B are at my core. I also really enjoy doing Pilates and it’s something I’d like to do for the rest of my life.
