"I'm not a Christian Conservative because I did everything right, but rather I did a LOT wrong and came to my own realization that God's ways are better...they just are."
- Diane Canada
Is The Common Theme
In Diane's ENTIRE Body of Work
As God was healing her heart from major adversities in her own life, which she openly shares in her book, Lady Up & Don't Quit, Diane was healing companies in crisis as a Medical Management Consultant in Atlanta.
Simultaneously, she was being groomed by major management for a music career. Several years after moving to Nashville in 2001, she created an intimate and popular songwriting show that toured for years and was ultimately televised. It reached over 100 million households in the United States and syndicated in 3 countries, helping to heal hearts all over the world.
After the sudden and devastating loss of her brother, a Special Ops Marine with tours in Afghanistan, Diane ran for the Tennessee State House of Representatives in 2020, campaigning to heal a broken system for veterans who suffer from PTSD. As the underdog, she nearly won, finishing with 46% of the vote.
What she didn't foresee was how the campaign would come between her and her adult son, who had very different political views. Many of her friends also encountered painful divisions in their families over politics.
Diane became determined to find healing solutions. After much prayer and reflection, practical ideas started flowing.
She teamed up with her friend, Dr. Ming Wang, and created the Lady Up America APP. Moms learn to tap into their influential superpowers and gracefully win hearts back to Christian Conservative values in the toughest political climate of our lifetime.
Diane is a graduate of the Heritage Foundation's Political Leadership Academy out of Washington, D.C. and she holds a certificate from Hillsdale College in The Constitution.
Healing businesses in crisis as a consultant taught her to win hearts in hostile environments.
Songwriting taught Diane to craft meaningful words that connect and heal people.
The political arena gave her a clearer understanding that the power lies within us to heal our country.
