Who can find a virtuous woman? That is what she strives to be. She is a woman in love. There is nothing in her household that is more important than her husband. He can trust her. They are a team. She loves to create, contribute and beautify.

Minister Diane Jones was born in Sacramento, CA into a military family. Her father was in the United States Air Force so she could accurately be called an Air Force Brat. Her early childhood years included traveling to places like Germany and the Philippine Islands exposing her early to different cultures. In her pre adolescent years, the family and life she knew was destroyed by Alcoholism and Mental Illness which lead to her being emotionally, physically and sexually abused by her parents. These abuses lead to her being placed in Foster Care until the age of eighteen.

In spite of the trauma of her early years and even more trauma in later years, she went on to become a successful wife, mother, Registered Nurse and Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Minister Diane accepted the call to Ministry and was ordained in December of 1999. The Lord told her not to let any one label or limit her in doing his work, "You are a minister because I want you to do whatever I need you to do". This directive has allowed her to serve as a Nurse, Foster Parent, Praise and Worship Leader, Preacher, Teacher, Counselor and Prophetess. Together with her husband she currently serves the Body of Christ through their home based ministry "Equipping the Saints Minitries". Her greatest passions include outreach as an Assistant/ Volunteer with her husband who coaches Men's Basketball for the USAF and ministry through the sharing of her personal testimony and first book "The Story of Me". Since her first book, Diane has released Overcoming Sexual Abuse by Minister Jones (Inspired by the Holy Spirit) in which she shares insights about what sexual abuse is and how to overcome it and her latest autobiography The Story of Me a Black Nurse in which she deals with the issue and tramas caused by racism.

Minister Diane's education consist of her life experiences including nursing training, a Bachelors in Theology and most credibly, attendance in the School of the Holy Spirit who is the greatest of all teachers. She currently resides in Maryland with her wonderful husband, friend and companion Minister Chris.

Can one find justice in an unjust world?  What do you do when your'e down for the count and the odds have not gone in your favor?  Do you quit? Do you throw in the towel?  That all depends on who gave you the assignment or the task you are involved with. 

If God gave you the assignment, you must beleive he will see you through! He will exact every account in his own timing!

Black History with Pamela Woods
Special Guest Pamela Woods about Black History 2-18-19

Live Recording: 2-18-19 Diane will be joined by family member and Special Guest Pamela Woods to discuss Black History.

February is recognized as Black History month in the U.S.  In reality every month should be dedicated to Black history not only in the U.S. but world wide if any recognition should to be given to Black History. Why? Because, the book of Genesis lets us know that mankind as we know it originated from Mesopotamic regions in the middle east, being Ethiopia,Egypt,Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Western Asia. Thats where the world was reformed and mankind was placed.  Everthing that every man, women, boy or girl has done since then originated from God through people of olive, caramel, beige, light, dark brown and Black People and later lighter, more pale aka White people .  At a certain point in history, God chose people (Isrealites) out of a group of people to be his people, not because of the color of their skin for all were people of color.  He chose a people to be his people that they could be examples to the world of his nature, his goodness and his righteaousness. In doing this, he made a distinction between the righteous and the unrighteous, the pagans and the holy not between the color of their skin.

It was only after mankind began to seek to overthrough God's rule by invading the heaven's that God confused mans language which caused them to seperate into races.  His original plan was that of unity.  He has the same desire today, but he has expanded his invitation to all people that he may have a people that will enjoy his blessings for ever and ever without end, meaning eternally.  

Because of mans rebellion, races were formed.  Because of the races, racism began.  Because of Racism, we have Black History Month in the U.S. 

It would be great if all men could love God, live for him and overcome the effects of thousands of years of sin and rebellion.  Sadly that is not going to happen.  To combat the effects of racism, we must live the life God has ordained for each of us individually.  All people come from Black people, some have lost their essence and color over time but figurativly speaking, Black men, women and children still make up the majority of human kind. 

We must encourage and enfluence all mankind to live peacably and holy until God puts down the rebellion of sin once and for all.  That will truly be a glorious day!
