Diane's Workshop at Ozarks Writers League on "The Power Of The Pen."

Diane and her husband, Rick, have worked several years in youth and adult ministries in their church, where she wrote plays and skits as well as Sunday School curriculum and Bible studies. She has three children and eight grandchildren who are the crown of her life.

      "My husband and I and our family have been blessed to spend a week a year together on Bald Head Island, NC. During this time, God allows us to enjoy His creation--from the ocean to the sky, from the sand to the woods, the foxes, the turtles and the dolphins. For seven days we reflect on His love and grace and peace. For a moment time stands still and we exist in harmony. I wish all families a time like this." Diane Yates
