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.

Wet & Wild! (Whew!)

First thing this morning, I asked what You wanted me to write about today, Lord. Something that would give You glory. I didn't realize Your answer would come through a God-encounter. Of the (almost) Life and Death kind. We decided to go fishing before church. Before most people were even awake. When fish (if we...

Defeating Bedroom Persecution!

On Wednesday, I introduced a touchy (no pun intended) subject whose correlation to Kingdom PERSECUTION might be missed by the casual cultural observer. The subject? Erotica aimed at women -- a.k.a. Romance Porn or Mommy Porn. A multi-billion-dollar industry that lures women (including Christians) into its net, under the guise of romance and redeeming love....

Persecution in The Bedroom?

Persecution is defined as "hostility or ill treatment because of religious or political beliefs." My Wednesday blogs focus on how Kingdom (i.e., faith-based) persecution is impacting Christian business owners and leaders in our day. Persecution manifests itself in overt actions that condemn, curtail, deny and/or blatantly punish the free exercise and expression of Faith. But what if...

Music to My Ears… and Soul!

I can see the motto now. The motto of a movement that is simultaneously subtle and transformational. A movement designed to get under people's skin in a way that changes what they think and do. The motto? Sing a Song, Change the World! Science has produced fascinating studies regarding the impact of music and lyrics...

Happy Birthday to… Who?!

I was so JOY-FULL, Lord, tears streamed down my cheeks. I felt like dancing! I could hardly wait to sing "Happy Birthday" to this dear brother. On this most precious Birthday. The celebration had been going on for a whole hour before I finally got in on the action. It happened this morning. At church....

Will You Friend Me, God?

Marshall McLuhan, a 1960's Canadian professor and philosopher, was ahead of his time. He is credited with predicting the World Wide Web thirty years before it was invented. And with initiating the now famous theory, "The medium is the message."  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_medium_is_the_message What does this mean where the Internet and evangelism are concerned? Perhaps that Kingdom...

Live… and Let Die?

I am filled with questions. Questions without easy answers. I have learned a lot as I have explored the topic of religious liberty for the last eight months. It's natural that I would have a heart for the marketplace, having worked since I was a teenager. And having served at every corporate level. Frontline worker....

A Jackpot Worth Sharing!

Sometimes what happens in Vegas can't stay there. Because the whole world needs to hear about it! Enter Lowell "Bud" Paxson. From DJ to small radio station owner. One of his advertisers, short on cash, paid his invoice with 118 electric can openers. Though "rich" in product, Bud couldn't make payroll the next day. His desperate...

Hi, Stranger. Tell Me Your Secrets… ?!

Wow, Lord. We never know when You are going to position us to share with other Valley travelers. So that they, too, can find Victory there... Amen? My latest opportunity was at a women's networking event two days ago. Sponsored by a retail business 35 miles from where I live. We have started holding such...

When No One’s Watching… Wow!

The Lord just used a dear friend to provide today's post. Through a Facebook message he forwarded to me. Written 18 months ago, describing what was (for the post's writer) a once-in-a-lifetime experience. But I bet the same thing happens every day. Because the event described is evidence that the real Owner of the company...
