Hello, I'm Diana Claire.

The leaves fell early from the trees this year, thanks to the storm that rolled through our forest, tearing out 100-year-old oak trees by their roots. And like those trees being swayed and shifted by the winds, so has my own foundation been forever changed by this equally tumultuous year.

It's been a time of deep reflection through months of isolation that, along with the changing seasons, will hopefully yield new growth and a fuller, richer life, come Spring.

Through this blog, I plan to capture, with words and art, the everyday things in life that help in my quest for a deepened faith and a focus on gratitude and service during my 50s and beyond.

This blog won't just include my voice. I believe that learning from the experiences and knowledge of other Christian women of all ages and from all around the world is the best form of mentoring and growing in our Christian faith.

Sharing in the little things, and the big things of life can lead to great encouragement. A larger sense of being in Christ, making our way through life with deeper connections, and a greater desire to make the most of our time in the Autumn of our lives.

Won't you come along?

The Beauty of Autumn encourages women in midlife to use the gifts they have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace (based on 1 Peter 4:10). My goal is to help women stop worrying if it's too late, and instead get excited about living their best Christian life from a more 

mature, wise and experienced place.


  1. It is definitely 'the little things' that can make a difference. This morning on my chilly 6am walk, I saw tiny finches flitting from branch to branch, and it reminded me that God sees us all, even the smallest birds. He will provide us with our daily needs. It was so encouraging. I also just LOVE birds!

    1. Cate, it is so encouraging knowing God will provide! I love birds also and we have many that visit our feeders. Today. while my husband and I were sitting in our garden, a beautiful hummingbird flew right up to my face and looked at me as if to say "thank you for the food!" It still amazes me how fast their wings move. Just beautiful!
