Diane tells us that nothing has a greater potential to fulfill or disappoint; to build up or destroy than relationship.  Whether it is with God, a spouse, children, grandchildren, a friend or work associate, our lives are an intricate weave of people and events. 

Diane Maxey's life has yielded a rich source of incredible relationships and events that dramatically demonstrate how God works in and through the most impossible circumstances, if we let Him.  

Diane and her husband, Ken, make their home in Lancaster, California, north of Los Angeles where they serve in their local community.  They have two married children, Michelle and Ken with eight grandchildren ranging from college-age to one on-the way!



"Diane wrote and taught a Bible study on finding and experiencing hope during difficult times.  By weaving her own life experiences with solid scriptural teaching, she showed herself to be an excellent teacher of the Word as well as an inspiring communicator.  I feel certain that others would be enriched by her teaching."  

-Nancy Parker, Director of Women's Ministries for Desert Vineyard Christian Fellowship, Lancaster, CA
