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 Power of KNOW

Much wisdom has often been packed into "truisms." Like this one: Easy Come, Easy Go.  I can relate to the second part. The 2008 Dot Com debacle comes immediately to mind. :(  But what I lost when that bubble burst -- a significant chunk of lifetime savings -- had never come easily. So I relate much...

The Power of The Pen

On Monday, I showcased prolific Christian writer Frank Peretti.   https://championsofdestiny.com/darkness-be-gone-light-is-here/ What I didn't expect to find (on his Facebook page) was his September 2016 letter to the Washington State Attorney General. Urging him to reconsider his legal case against florist Barronelle Stutzman. The florist whose case I showcased here on May 30, 2018 and June...
