It was on a hot, summer day in July at a hospital in Dallas, hooked up to feeding tubes and in deteriorating health that Diane Machen discovered the gift that God had given her in a disease.

Who would have guessed that a battle with Crohn’s disease could be a gift that changed her life? How could any trial be a gift? God's unlikely gift to Diane gave her a testimony of hope. Now she encourages others to “unwrap the gifts” in their lives and find the treasures in their trials.

“...she’s practical, insightful, energizing and so effective... helping women apply Biblical truth to every day life... (and girl, can she sing!)”
