Like a beautiful diamond, your truth is multi-faceted, with dazzling aspects of authenticity always waiting to shine forth. Embracing each facet of your ever-unfolding truth can be scary and challenging. But the joys of doing so far outweigh the heartache of living a safe, but inauthentic life. Author Gabrielle Claiborne knows.

From the outside, it looked like she had it all: beautiful family, high-power career, church and community respect. But inside, she was living a life of turmoil. Overcoming four decades of fear and shame, Gabrielle risked everything and leaped into the unknown to embrace a key aspect of her truth, that she is a transgender woman.

In this inspiring "memoir meets self-help" book this successful business owner, TEDx speaker and nationally recognized LGBTQ leader shares her riveting story of losing one life and discovering another. As she recounts her joys and struggles, with humor and vulnerability, Gabrielle graciously weaves insights about living authentically with invitations for readers to embrace new facets of their own unique truths--whatever those look like for them.
