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.

Oh the Blood of Jesus 4-21-19

What can wash away all sin?

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

What can make me whole again?

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Oh prescious is the flow, that makes me white as snow.

No other fountain I know.

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

In honor of Passover, apply Jesus blood to the doors of your heart.

Celebrate the power of his resurrection by repenting and  becomming a new creature.

New life can be yours today 💥

When Family Is Family 3-25-2019

Tonight's Encore will be in honor of Minister Diane's aunts passing:

Life can be Traumatic

When family is family, you don't need outside affirmation, love or attention....

Within family lies the frame work and foundation needed for learning how to navigate this thing called life....

Without it, the opposite is true....

Today my family lost it's last Matriarch...

She was truly a virtous woman...

She loved God...

She loved her husband for better and for worse.....

She didn't birth children but took in, loved and nurtured the abandoned and needy....

She extended that love to others like me and my siblings who were also abandoned....

She served her church and others every chance she got....

I thank God for the impact she had in my life. 

I will continue her legacy.......... 


Rest in the arms of the Lord Aunt Lizzy.

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