One Woman’s Journey From Darkness to the Light

Share Article

New book tells an inspiring true story of how the author was born again in Christ.

I was lost in a world of darkness of my own creation

Author Jessica Di Fabio-Iwamoto was a talented, successful, sought-after artist and actress. So why was she drowning in depression and despair? In her memoir, An Artist’s Palette From Dark to Light, she shares with readers an intimate glimpse of her life and how she journeyed from darkness to the light.

Gifted with many talents, the author’s work was admired by many people. Yet she felt emptiness in her heart. When she was able to capture the color and design of God’s beautiful world with paint and brush, her joy was indescribable—but short-lived. She always came crashing down after a wonderful high, dashed back into a dark hole of loneliness and depression. Despite her God-given gifts, “I was lost in a world of darkness of my own creation,” she writes.

An Artist’s Palette From Dark to Light tells the moving true story of one woman’s journey—the author’s own—from suicidal thoughts to sublime happiness. By developing an intimate, personal relationship with Jesus Christ, Iwamoto was born again—and finally able to move from a dark, destructive existence to a productive life, full of joy and light.
