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.

Manna and Murmuring

Diane was doing some study in the book of Numbers today when she ran into chapter 11 which tells us about God's anger towards his people for murmuring and complaining about his process and provisions for them in the wilderness.

In verse 1 God consumed them with fire for complaining against him.

In verse 7 she saw that the people complained because he only gave them manna to eat each day.

She looked up the description of manna which described it as made of Coriander seed and looked like the color of Bdellium.

The people ground it, beat it into a paste, baked it and made  it into cakes.  It taste like fresh oil.  That didn't sound appealing compared to fish, cucumber, melons, leeks, garlic and onions.  It is understandable that they grew tired of the manna.

In spite of that, Diane was greatly aware of how much it displeased God that they murmured agaisnt him.  This awareness was accompanied by a weighty feeling.

Oh Lord, she cried, Help your people to realize their blessings and see things through your eyes!


We are blessed beyond our undestanding!

Don't Be A Victim of Spiritual Abuse

Spiritual Abuse is when religious leaders use their position of authority to Lord over those they are called to serve, spiritually care for and feed. Instead of the leader serving the people, the people serve the leader and help build him or hers ego, kingdom and platform up.

The abusive leaders often use control, manipulation, intimidation, shaming, threats and other wicked means to establish their positions and maintain their pedestals.

If you've been victimized by an abusive leader, you can and should break free of their grip.  You must recognize them for who they are and become who God called you to be!

Don't be a victim of spiritual abuse any longer.
