Hi, I'm Diana Furr!

Six years ago, I entered the Valley of Cancer. Now cancer-free (!), I am keenly aware that cancer of a different kind is attacking one of the liberties I cherish most in America -- Religious Liberty. Who will win this battle? People of faith, empowered with knowledge, practical strategies, and the courage to stand. This blog will become your "go to" place for Learning and Leverage, especially for leaders in business -- the next great mission field for Christ.

Color Me… What???

Lawsuits take many years to reach the U.S. Supreme Court. Few are even considered by the highest court in the land. Most parties who prevail in such lawsuits are able to finally breathe a sigh of relief. Or so you would think. Not Jack Phillips. As owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, he had declined to use...

When Destiny Comes Into Laser Focus

Normally, I write about Christian business owners called to impact the marketplace for Christ. Today, I feel compelled to write about a leader in government service... ... who discovered God's palpable Presence -- and his own God-given destiny -- at a time that should have ended his life.

Don’t Play With Fire!

We all remember one or both of our parents exhorting us with this urgent warning. "Don't play with fire!" We may not have always heeded it... but we certainly heard it. Amen? Why the warning?
