As the women’s ministry coordinator at Colonial Heights Christian Church, it has been my privilege and blessing to invite Dianne to minister to our ladies as our annual ladies’ retreat keynote speaker and the following year as a retreat workshop presenter. Dianne’s back-to-the-basics approach showed us that the timeless relevancy of God’s Word has the answers for today’s issues of marriage, parenting, and spiritual growth. She delivers both wisdom and knowledge with enthusiasm, joy, and humility. Dianne took the time to step into the lives of our ladies with her special gift of encouragement. Because of her willingness to be used by God’s Holy Spirit, she was more than our “speaker,” she became our friend.
Dianne Barker is a woman “after God’s own heart.” She has a passion for marriage and family and has led in example for our own children and many young families whom she has mentored over the years. She is an excellent author, women’s conference leader, and specifically a Proverbs 31 woman of the 21st century.
Dianne was the speaker for our 2005 Women’s Conference (Thomas Village Baptist Church, Duffield, Virginia). We were blessed as she shared God’s Word with us. Dianne is a sincere, loving person who is committed to our Lord. God has given her a wonderful personality to communicate to everyone.
