Diane is disability ministry consultant, speaker, and author of Unbroken Faith: Spiritual Recovery for the Special Needs Parent (Worthy Publishing, April 2018).In 2004, her eldest son was diagnosed with autism at 18 months – and subsequent, additional diagnoses – which triggered profound personal, professional and spiritual crises: When her child was diagnosed with cognitive disabilities, she, too, found herself “spiritually disabled” by grief and disillusionment. The comfort she received from Christ (2 Cor. 1:4) birthed a passion to encourage struggling families with the timeless relevance of Scripture, applied to the gritty realities of life. In 2009, she began partnering with Joni and Friends as a national speaker and ministry ambassador.The luncheon and childcare is free to all moms of children with autism. Registration for the event and childcare is required.
