Who can find a virtuous woman? That is what she strives to be. She is a woman in love. There wass nothing in her household that was more important than her husband. He trusted her until he passed away September 22, 2020. They were married twenty two years. They were a team. She loves to create, contribute and beautify. She is also the mother of two adult children and a vibrant, gifted grandaughter.  Her daughter is Shanell.  Her son is Ephrem and her granddaughter is Nevaeh (Heaven spelled backward).

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, Author 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 and Radio Host.

She currently serves the Body of Christ through the home based ministry they founded called "Equipping the Saints Minitries". Her greatest passions have include outreach as an Assistant/ Volunteer with her husband who coached Men's Basketball for the USAF for more than twenty years and Women's 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 which allowed her to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse and then a Registered Nurse, 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 and celebrates the love and life of her dearly departed Minister Chris and continues to fulfill her assignment as mother and grandmother to her children.
