Through the ups and downs of my life – training children, adopting children, home schooling, having adoptions fall through, and through surgeries, the death of my son, life as a pastor’s wife, and inner healing issues – Diana, my friend, my confidant, and my true sister in Christ, has walked with me since 1994.  During this time, she has not only spoken encouragement, sat quietly with me, given me perspective, helped me with healing by seeing patterns in my life, prayed with and for me, truly brought the Love of Jesus to me, but also she has lived alongside and in front of me her faith in our mighty God.  She is a woman after God’s heart who can share His love with those who are aching, or hurting, or just simply living through life’s circumstances. Diana brings His comfort, His direction, His wisdom, His discernment, His faith, His hope because of her relationship with Him and her ability to listen to and respond to Him.  Truly, I don’t know of any other godly woman whom I could trust through any life situation. – Kelley, Kansas

I was thinking about what women are my biggest role models in the sense of the way they do life, family, carry themselves, and just the overall scheme of things…. and the first two who popped in my mind were Bobbie Houston (Hillsong Church Sydney, Australia) and you! You both have such a grace/elegance about you, yet are completely down to earth with beautiful authenticity. You walk with humbleness but in the wisdom and authority of God. -Allison, Missouri

I’ve been honored to have a mentoring relationship with Diana since 2008. She lives her roles of wife and mother with such passion and grace.  Simply being around her pushes me to grow in those roles. She understands all sides of love: the let-me-give-it-to-you-straight kind of love as well as the love that listens and gives grace. I’ve found that I am more balanced, my family is healthier and my life is richer because of my relationship with Diana. – Jennifer, Missouri

I’ve had the privilege to know Diana since 2004.  She is always willing and ready to listen, pray, and work a solution (if needed) while making you feel like the most important person in the room.  Listening to her biblical teaching and guidance will empower you to take on the world! – Leah, Arkansas

I have known Diana since 1980.  Her life exemplifies one to be duplicated.  Successful people follow what they see, not simply what they have been told. The fruit of Diana’s role as Life Coach abounds. You need not look far to find changed individuals who are ready, willing and eager to give a testimony of her love and encouragement, and the tools and skills that she has introduced into their lives.” – Laurie, Minnesota

Diana has been a mentor and friend to me since 2008.  Her unconditional love, support and Spirit led gifting to speak truth and encouragement into my life has led me right into the heart of my Father, God.  It’s the best, longest lasting effect you can have on someone to teach them how to get to God’s heart!  Diana has taught me and shown me how to get there and why it is worth the journey! – Lori, Texas

Diana has been a dear friend and confidante of mine since 2004.  Few people have impacted my Christian walk to the degree that Diana has. On many occasions, through her wisdom and sound advice, she has challenged me to make tough, but godly decisions. Because Diana’s life exemplifies what it means to be a strong Christian woman in the 21st century, women of all ages and backgrounds look to her for guidance.  Diana is not afraid to share her own personal struggles as wife, mother, and friend to help others have victory in theirs. Without reservation, I encourage you to take full advantage of any opportunities you have to include Diana’s wisdom in your life and ministry. – Julie, Missouri

Diana’s expertise was instrumental in taking my business to the next level.  Her down to earth approach and passion to see people be all they can be for God is truly a gift to the body of Christ. I highly recommend her services as a speaker and life coach! – Tierny, Missouri

Since 2005 I have found Diana’s practical wisdom and insight to be invaluable to me, as my own children began to navigate the challenges of young adulthood. I am so thankful to God for placing Diana in my life.  She is definitely a trustworthy friend I can confidently go to for skillful and godly advice. -Nida, Missouri

No one can make me double over in laughter, with tears streaming down my face and a stitch in my side, quite like my sister. She is good medicine! – Debbie, Iowa

Whenever the subjects of marriage or family come up you and Pastor Michael are always the couple I mention that show how it should be done. So many of my friends and I look at both of you as role models in those areas. I could go on forever, but I just wanted to send you a ‘small’ note to say thank you so much for being such a great example of what a woman of God is! – Allison, Colorado

As a result of meeting with you I have gotten close to my kids again. I had this overwhelming feeling that I was loosing my daughter.  I almost accepted that was how it was going to be. My daughter wouldn’t say I love you for a long time but now I can’t tell you how many times I have heard that recently. My daughter wouldn’t kiss me or let me hug her and now we hug all the time and kiss. She talked to me about an issue with a friend the other night and I was mom, a Christian mom.  I know God led me to you so you could guide me in salvaging my family. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making a difference. –Christine, Missouri
