Bonfire or Hellfire

Dianne explains how God’s love is unconditional and yet it is also correctional. We can learn to submit to His life-giving discipline. As Hebrews 12:11 says “Now all discipline seems to be more pain than pleasure at the time, yet later it will produce a transformation of character, bringing a harvest of righteousness and peace to those who yield to it.” The Heavenly Father parents us through our resistance, fears and stress because He is a good father who knows what is best for His children.

About The Author
- After being miraculously healed of infertility, Dianne and her husband Happy left their successful careers and began The Vineyard Church of Central IL. Together, they have led for over 35 years, seeking to share Jesus’ love and the Holy Spirit’s power—here, near and far away. They ‘survived’ raising five children, 4 sons and a daughter, who have now given them 5 wonderful in-laws and 14 beautiful grandchildren. Dianne serves on the VUSA Executive Board and leads the Women in Leadership Network as well as the Spiritual Renewal Team. Whether it’s sipping a strong Starbucks, praying for a sick friend, watching a good football game, preaching a message, mentoring a college student, or just playing with the kids, Di is still learning to know, love and follow Jesus.
