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.

Caught In The Vortex!

The next tropical storm is moving through the Gulf. Threatening to become a hurricane in the next two days. I'm in Florida, but inland. So I expect nothing more than lots of rain. But still... I feel like I'm caught in a vortex of another kind. I drove 900 miles over the weekend to get...

Broken Heart Power… And More!

You can't pass on what you don't have. That's why leaders inevitably fail when they say "Do as I say, not as I do." Because, whatever we may say, we pass on what we do have. Emerson said it well when he observed, "Who you are [what you do] speaks so loudly, I cannot hear...

Ready… Aim… CARE!

This post about Kingdom Persecution is not technically about Christian business owners. It is about CEO's of another sort -- police chiefs, sheriffs, fire chiefs and their departments. And it's about their growing interest in a service Christian business owners have long revered: Corporate (or in this case, law enforcement) chaplains. A growing number are investing in...

Would YOU Trust This Car Dealer?

Buying a car is just about my least favorite thing to do. Can anyone relate? I have often left that transaction feeling deceived, manipulated and/or just plain robbed. With too much of my hard-earned money left "on the table." Because I wasn't informed, wise or adept enough to find a true "win-win" outcome. I hate...

I Said It… But I Didn’t Really Mean It

Lord, Lord, Lord... These are times that try -- i.e., test, challenge -- our souls like never before. As a culture, we have been drifting (running?) away from You for decades. Our values (and hearts) shifting away from what You hold dear so we can embrace what we desire apart from You. Why are we...

Don Quixote’s Delusion?

I was too exhausted last night to write this Kingdom Power blog. After the Senate Judiciary Committee's Kavanaugh hearings and pre-vote deliberations. But today... Don Quixote always had more of my heart than his sidekick, Sancho Pansa. Both were unworkable, undesirable extremes. The Poetic Idealist and the Practical Realist on steroids. Wasn't that the whole...

Too Soon For A White Flag… ??? !!!

Rod Dreher -- in his book, The Benedict Option: A Strategy for Christians in a Post-Christian Nation -- wrote: "Post-Obergefell, Christians who hold to... biblical teaching about sex and marriage have the same status in culture, and increasingly in law, as racists. The culture war that began with the Sexual Revolution in the 1960s has now...

Girl of My Heart… And Heritage

Who do you know whose entrepreneurial legacy began at the age of eight? David Thomas, founder and CEO of Wendy's. When he was just eight, he dreamed he would run the best restaurant in the world. Before his death at age 69, he did everything he could to bring that dream to life. One source...

Tebow Tripping!

He isn’t the greatest Major League Baseball player… yet. He’s playing for the Class Double-A Rumble Ponies in Binghamton, NY. He’s aiming for the NY Mets. He was once considered the best college football player in the nation, winning the often-coveted Heisman trophy. And he did once accomplish a sports miracle… quarterbacking the Denver Broncos...
