About the Author
Dixie Diamanti's long journey to recovery from sexual abuse began early in her life. As a result of the abuse, she spent many years struggling for purpose and identity. Through her need to feel safe and to be valued, she sought solace in the rigid confines of religion, and found herself the victim of spiritual abuse and addiction to "ministry." The self-denial that enshrouded her led to her young daughter being molested by the same family member that had molested her. As her adult world fell apart with the loss of all that she loved and trusted, she found herself totally alone in life. It was in her most troubled times that she found a relationship with Jesus that far exceeded anything she had ever experienced before.
Dixie is a wife, mom, and nana to a large and wonderful family. She has discovered that God had actually been preparing her, through many years of adversity, for stepping into a new and exciting adventure with Him. As a Certified Life Coach, author, speaker, and teacher, Dixie has reached out to women and men on the Central Coast of California for many years, leading them to freedom and self-esteem. She believes that every child of God has a distinct calling, and through her work, she assists and coaches women and men in finding their unique purpose in life. Dixie's passion is to see people discover how precious and valuable they are to God, and loves to encourage and challenge them in uncovering and making use of God's hidden treasures within themselves.
