ABOUT THE HOST

REFLECTIONS OF GRACE

This ministry involves connecting and encouraging you along your life’s journey to the fulfillment you were destined to walk in. I am a Life Purpose Coach and want to assist you into clarity and fulfillment in your life by discovering what you were always meant to do through examining your life’s experiences, good and bad. and finding healing through the power of Jesus. Coaching will help you if you are blocked, stuck, or blinded by circumstances, yet are committed to moving forward and finding Jesus in a closer way. In this podcast we will be talking about limiting beliefs, taking ownership for actions, thoughts, and helping design a way to live that will fully express your passions and callings, healing you along the way. I desire to see you attain a personal well being and balance in your life. As your purpose comes into focus I hope to prayerfully assist you, through discernment, into finding your unique potential and fulfillment in whatever circumstance you find yourself in. This is about realizing the passions you possess are God’s clues to His unique purpose for you. It is about His revelation for your life as He speaks to you through biblical teaching.

THE PODCAST
Learn how to live your calling! Reflections of Grace Podcast will be addressing issues that pertain to Kingdom living in the here and now. One of my expertise’s (see Bio) is to help victims of childhood abuse to find total healing through the power of Christ by following the steps to get there. Titles of series coming up will be Ten Steps to Healing from Childhood Sexual Abuse, Breaking Strongholds and Generational Patterns, The Difference Between Religion and True Relationship in our everyday walk, How to live in the Fruit of the Spirit, and Spiritual Abuse, are some of the topics I want to cover in this podcast. I believe in transparency in the body of Christ to allow others to grow from our experiences, so I will be sharing parts of my journey to healing throughout my podcasts.

SCRIPTURE
And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18 Amp.

PODCASTER BIO
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.
