About Relationships and Restoration

A predominant struggle believers face today is the question of how divorce and remarriage affects one’s walk with God. Because these topics are sensitive and controversial, many churches have chosen to avoid the much-needed in-depth sermons or biblical studies on these subjects. 

However, forgiveness, love, and God’s restoration heals the broken. Instead of punishing yourself and letting sin separate you from God, Diane encourages believers to find their “God” chair and go deep with the Lord. Through God’s Word, Diane gives practical examples of how to live by faith beyond the cross—how to be still and listen to God’s advice.   

Diane candidly shares the underlying turmoil and dissatisfaction in her life as she reveals her innermost thoughts and secrets. Between the pages of “Time with God,” readers are intimately aware of her shortcomings and the difficult process of her restoration. Along the way, Diane writes about the promises God made her and the creative ways He fulfilled those promises. Her story is that rare combination of heartbreak and happiness, sometimes sad yet often humorous. The one constant is Diane’s love of God and her willingness to ask the hard questions and seek God’s answers.

God’s “Stadium Sized” Plans

Years before my global ministry began, I was writing in my prayer journal when God gave me these words: “Are you ready for the stadium level?” I wrote them down, not really knowing what meaning they would have in my life. Then I promptly forgot about that journal entry. Years later, when standing in the Linda K. Epling Stadium, preparing to minister to thousands, I remembered those words. God gave me the courage to reach out to believers and non-believers alike on a scale that would have blown my mind if I had known the full scope of His plan. Yet His plan has brought me so many blessings—so much joy.

God already has a grand plan for your life. He will give you the strength, courage, knowledge, tools, and experts to teach you and prepare you for your purpose. God makes all things possible for everyone, even when it came to having me speak in front of religious leaders from all over the world. He knew all along that my love for and trust in Him would be sufficient. All I had to do was be open to listening to His voice and trusting in His plan.
