About Diane Nix

Diane Nix is director and founder of Contagious Joy.  She and her professor/pastor husband, Dr. Preston Nix,  have served in ministry for 33 years August 2016.  She speaks and teaches whenever the Lord gives her opportunity.  Gratefully acknowledging that He has plucked her out of her birth family mire in order to share HIS LOVE!   You can check out Contagiousjoy4him & Diane’s statement of faith here. We Believe.    You can check out Diane’s speaking schedule here.  Scroll down on Schedule for a look at 2017.  

Diane has two miracle birth girls – Rebekah 21 & Rachel 19.  Two spiritual daughters – Kasia 36 married to Robby, who pastors in Beaumont, Texas & Courtney (34) who is finishing up a Phd in New Orleans.  Kasia & Robby have two beautiful children Samuel (2) & Jailee 2 months. 

Diane shares her journey of lessons learned while being a Pastor’s wife for 21 years. She and her family experienced the after math of Hurricane Katrina where – after living in New Orleans for only three weeks – they lost every daily living thing.  She as well, shares experiences of surviving a difficult battle with meningitis – 10 months after Hurricane Katrina.  Diane’s life has been a journey of “never giving up” in the midst of trials!  The last 8 years she has enjoyed being a professor’s wife, traveling, teaching the Word of God and being a mom.  She is married to Dr. Preston L. Nix, Director of the Landrum Leavell School of Evangelism and Church health and Professor of Evangelism and Preaching at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

Diane grew up not understanding how to apply God’s Word and principles practically in her life. This is the reason she has a great desire for women of all ages to come to know Christ and then to know how to live the abundant and victorious life for Him each and every day.

She has a burning passion to let women know that they are accepted and loved for who the Savior has created them to be – not what the world would mold them to be. Jesus and Jesus alone is to be your true identity.

Have you ever thought that you and I could be forfeiting God’s grace?  What does that look like?  How could that be?  There are times while living in the “glass house” that we can forget who has allowed our success, who has even allowed the hardships.  As my dad would say, we forget who “brung us.”  We can forget the place where we began.  We can forget the pit from which He plucked us.  We can forget the spiritual legacy from which we have come.
