Diane’s passion is encouraging struggling believers with the timeless relevance of Scripture, applied to the gritty realities of life. In 2004, her first son was diagnosed with autism at age two and ADHD, which triggered profound personal, professional and spiritual crises. For an intro to her story of faith, family and special needs, read her (wo)manifesto HERE.
Author of Unbroken Faith: Spiritual Recovery for the Special Needs Parent (Worthy Publishing, April 2018), her writing has been featured in Orange’s Parent Cue, Parenting Magazine, Dandelion Magazine, and Not Alone.
Since 2008, Diane has served as a special needs ministry consultant, training and equipping local churches into becoming inclusive faith communities. She is honored to partner with Joni and Friends as a ministry ambassador and national speaker:
“Diane is a gifted speaker and writer. Her gift? She’s authentic. Diane shares a raw response to the pain she’s experienced. Her reflections are mixed with humor and sobriety, and she helps readers laugh at their own circumstances. She points you to the Word of God in hopes that you will experience heaven-sent comfort and compassion. She will help you grasp how God understands your pain and suffers with you. She reassures you of God’s goodness, reminding you that it’s okay to grieve, weep, doubt… and ask the hardest of questions.”

Whether by a diagnosis, disillusionment, a death—or the death of a dream— everyone gets “crippled” by something. Everyone struggles to reconcile faith with disappointment, because no one is exempt from the jagged edges of a broken planet. Adversity offers unexpected opportunities for spiritual growth and transformation. Sin and brokenness may steal, kill, and destroy indiscriminately. But Jesus is an equal opportunity healer and Redeemer.
Diane and her husband, Eddie, have served over twenty-five years in bi-vocational ministry. They live and serve in the heart of Silicon Valley with their two young sons. Subscribe and connect with her on Facebook, where she shares on being…
wrecked, redeemed and repurposed.
