I See Jesus, Three words that changed my life’ by Diane Nienas is an extremely powerful narrative of a young, innocent girl coming of age through physical and psychological trauma, heart ache and young love. Her journey through adulthood is chocked full of discouragement, loss and pain, and equally supplied with encouragement and love. Diane weaves a story of beauty in the simplicity of making each day an opportunity to celebrate the life of her family members, especially her son, Leo. In the process of managing Leo’s illness, Diane opens her heart, realizing that her and her son’s roles have switched: Leo is the teacher! Our young hero helps his mother and others find divine intervention, the beauty in simplicity and how to live and love one day at a time to find inner peace. This story shows a family’s struggle to find points of light where darkness prevails. Their examples of faith, hope and love shine brightly for us all.
Diane and her husband, Tony, were given news that every parent dreads. Their son, Leo, would not likely see his third birthday.
Diane found herself faced with an experience that could have broken her. Yet, her faith grew stronger, due in large part to Leo’s influence, as well as God’s plan.
