Protected by the Light: A Spiritual Memoir by Debra Roinestad

​Radio Interview

A  spiritual journey from the violent darkness to the healing light. 

Debra always had an intuition about her life—a small voice that protected her and kept her as safe as possible—but it wasn’t until a near-death experience that she understood the importance of her spirit guide’s voice.

Over time, Debra had suffered violent tremors also known as, "conversion disorder" from child abuse. Protected by the Light, is Debra’s story of pain, but it is also her story of survival, and of finding the light—a light she hopes will one day lead each of us to find peace.

we are all surrounded by light—if we only choose to let it in.
