The Counting On star took to Instagram on Wednesday to candidly speak to her followers after her past struggles with weight loss.
“I talk about- in Chapter Five- just the wrestlings that I had as a young teen and I really struggled with finding my identity in Christ and wrestled with weight loss,-wanting to lose weight and trying to be skinny and all of that for myself. For finding my identity in that.”
She added that she will also discuss “how the Lord helped me to know who I was in Christ and to be grounded there instead of in who I thought I should be and what I thought I should look like.”

Jinger continued: “Those are some things that I open up about in Chapter Five and so, I hope that the book is an encouragement and that’s why we wrote it.
“We really want to just be raw, open and share a little bit about how the Lord has led us and helped us through things.”
Alongside the clip, Jinger wrote: “In our book, The Hope We Hold, I share some of my struggles as a teen with identity and trying to fit a certain image. Hopefully it will be an encouragement to any of you who may be fighting the same battle.”
