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.

The Queen of Cruise Control!

The speed limit was clearly marked. 55 miles per hour. Everyone else was going at least 70. Suddenly, 55 didn't seem so fast anymore. Why are there speed limits anyway, Lord? I don't believe it's just to "cramp" our style. Aren't they primarily intended for safety -- at least, under normal weather and road conditions?...

Seeking The Glass House!

People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. Glass doesn't sound like the most durable material for a house... does it? But maybe it's the most durable of all. If we're living behind glass, people can see us. And maybe that visibility -- with its inherent vulnerability -- is exactly what we need to help...

Money Talks. But What Does It Say?

Many of the confrontations over religious liberty in our day center around LGBTQ issues. More specifically, whether or not Christian business owners can be forced to provide services for events that violate their deeply-held religious beliefs -- i.e., same-sex marriage and gender transition, to name two. Such confrontations have manifested in both the judicial and...

Strange Bedfellows? No… Strategic!

How's this for a corporate introduction? "In life, as in chicken, it’s always better when you just keep it real. No filler. No nonsense. Just stick to the good stuff. The 100% real stuff. The simple things that make life, and chicken, great."   https://www.tyson.com/our-story Not a bad philosophy of life... Amen? Depending, of course, on...

Pitiful, Power-full Parable!

How could so much effort yield such a pitiful harvest? We thoroughly tilled the soil. Added plenty of natural fertilizer. (Yes. The farmer's favorite -- cow manure.) We planted good seed. As far as we were able to discern, at least. We waited and watched... and weeded. We even assembled bear-grade electric fencing when the...

Which Leaders Measure Up?

We have been exploring what we can learn from battle-tested Christian business leaders to help us all lead more powerfully and impactfully for Christ in an increasingly challenging marketplace. But what lessons can (and must) we learn from followers? Much as been written about leadership qualities. Their vital importance in moving people and organizations from...

What Future Will YOUR Vote Promote?

Religious liberty battles are often fought in courtrooms. Where the actions of individuals and/or government officials are brought under the scrutiny of judges charged with interpreting and administering the laws of the land. Judges are human beings, of course. With their own worldview. We all have one. It's the lens through which we see and...

Benevolent Biking Benefactor!

How could I not be a fan of the Internet? How else could I discover so many amazing Christian business owners I would have otherwise never known? Like Hal Taussig, Founder of Untours. A successful travel agency offering independent, self-directed travel experiences around the world. Combining a little hand-holding, planning and onsite support with lots...

The One That Got Away

It had been awhile since I had landed one. A rainbow trout. Beautiful and delicious. I was salivating for such a meal that night. Recent floods had changed the whole landscape. My favorite fishing hole used to have huge boulders in the middle, where fish could hide out from predators and wait for bait to...

Forewarned is… ???

We've all known some. Maybe we've even been one, at one time or another? Fair-weather fans. The ones who are all gung-ho... as long as their team is winning. Who are all-too-quick to jump ship and/or change allegiances when the going gets tough. No one wants to be identified with losers... right? Is that why...
