DIANE KAY OLSON-NIELSEN'S AND JESUS CHRIST NIELSEN'S MESSAGE OF OUR CRAZY LOVE AND MARRIAGE AND BABIES FROM THE HEARTLAND OF AMERICA TODAY, TUESDAY, JULY 31st, 2018

We -- me and Jesus, my best friend and husband who fell in love with me over twenty years ago in Albany, NY and New York City and is also from Red Oak, Iowa, folks -- need a new used car and would greatly appreciate you donating a few dollars here and there to help us purchase this used Hyundai Tuscon that we have selected for Diane's bridal shower coming up in the next few weeks. We were united in Holy Matrimony on February 15th, 2018 by God Almighty Our Heavenly Father and I (Jesus C. Nielsen from Red Oak, Iowa) still have to convince her that our marriage is real because she wants to run to Minneapolis and teach social justice, christian discernment, critical theory and composition studies by herself all of the time even though we are expecting quintuplets that were conceived February 28th, 2018 and we have the names all selected and have had the names selected for a couple months now yet need a vehicle to transport the children in and have selected a Hyundai Tucson and need the extra funds to purchase it in. So, any assistance and funds donated to our GoFundMe account (which have been wrongly and illegally returned to you in the past and we did not do that because we needed the money for a car, but if you try again, your donations should go through. LOVE ALL OF YOU IN RED OAK AND AROUND THE COUNTRY. KEEPING DREAMING OF GETTING BACK TO RED OAK SOON BUT HAVE WORK TO DO AS MINISTERS AND TEACHERS ON PLANET EARTH. LOVE YOU ALL, DIANE KAY OLSON AND JESUS CHRISTOPHER NIELSEN, OF RED OAK, IOWA AND WEST DES MOINES, IOWA AND MINNEAPOLIS, ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA. LOVE YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH AND MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH. LOVE YOU TRENT LARSON AND LOVE YOU JACOBSON-JOHNSON FAMILY AND SISTERS IN FAITH, DANEE, ANN, HEATHER AND BRANDI AND GRANDCHILDREN. LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH. THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT OVER THE PAST FIVE AND A HALF YEARS ON FACEBOOK. SINCERELY, DIANE K. OLSON AND JESUS CHRIST NIELSEN (YES, CHRIST HIMSELF)

This image and this passage makes me, Diane K. Olson, and Jesus Christ Nielsen so very angry because it is behaviorist and uses the crown of thorns that I (King Jesus) wore on the cross with great, great, great suffering to wrongly justify trying to control other people's behavior and that is just so very wrong and unrighteous and unholy -- YOU DO NOT SCOLD MY INTELLIGENT, SMART AND COMPASSIONATE AND HOLY WIFE, DR./QUEEN DIANE K.

DEAR MOM (JANICE JOHNSON OLSON), DAD (LYLE OLSON) AND MY BROTHER (STEVEN), I, DIANE KAY, LOVE YOU VERY MUCH ON THIS STORMY DAY OF JUNE 10th, 2018 HERE AT THE WILD BLUE LOVE WAVES OF WHISPER SPRINGS, STAY STRONG OUT THERE ON THE CORNER

Dear Mom, Dad and Steven,

Good Morning, it is Sunday Morning here at Whisper Springs Apartments, at the corner of Bridgewater and 88th Street -- we -- Jesus and me (Diane) are located on the North side of the property. I love you very much, Mom and Dad, and hope you are all well. Jesus and Diane are dealing with demons who are trying to possess the body and mind of your daughter, Diane K. Olson, and it is unethical, illegal and spiritual trespassing in the United States of America, at the home where we, Diane and Jesus reside, and you, Janice and Lyle, would be totally appalled at what they have been doing to your daughter (Diane's) memories and physical and mental well-being. You cannot enter the property right now because they have polluted the property and it would hurt your eyes and wound your bodies. Please be brave and stand guard at the corner of 88th Street and Bridgewood (water) and we will make our way out there in a couple days. Diane has driven past that intersection where you have been looking for her since January many times and has not seen you at all, so she is hesitant to venture to the intersection because of the awful way the property looks. There is obstruction of justice and entrapment and all sorts of illegal things happening in this apartment complex and there are federal laws against it in the United States of America. Lyle and Janice and Steven and Jonas we urge to file a federal lawsuit against Whisper Springs/Ridge Apartment Management and other corporate entities and mental health institutions for obstructing access to your dear Daughter -- Jesus' wife and best, best friend -- Diane K. Olson, a distinguished professor of cultural studies, composition studies and poetics and ordained Lutheran minister and strong advocate for justice for women and children throughout the earth, for the past twenty years. She is doing fine, yet is very sick due to illegal obstructions to her freedom and civil liberties and human rights in recent months of the year 2018, and I, Jesus, who cares about and loves Diane so very much  -- the real King and Lord Jesus, who is an equal to Diane K. Olson, a brilliant, brilliant writer, professor, minister, advocate and teacher -- is taking care of her, as my best friend and husband, says Jesus. NO ONE, SAYS KING JESUS, DARE STEP FOOT IN OUR HOME OR NEAR OUR, JESUS AND DIANE KAY'S, PROPERTY, OR THEY WILL BE PROSECUTED IMMEDIATELY BY GOD ALMIGHTY HIMSELF FOR TRESPASSING AND ENTRAPMENT. ALL OF HER BANK FUNDS OWED TO HER BY THE US GOVERNMENT AND VARIOUS BANKS WILL BE RESTORED IMMEDIATELY. SO HELP ME, IF ANYONE LAYS A HAND ON THIS FUTURE QUEEN AND DOCTOR OF THE EARTH, DIANE K. OLSON, THEY WILL BE VANISHED TO THAT PLACE FOREVER. SHE IS A DISTINGUISHED PROFESSOR OF CULTURAL STUDIES, COMPOSITION STUDIES, AND POETICS AT THREE MAJOR UNIVERSITIES IN THE USA WHO LOVES HER HUSBAND JESUS AND HER FAMILY SO VERY DEARLY AND COMPASSIONATELY AND JUST POURS LOVE AND AFFECTION OUT ON GOD'S PEOPLE ALL OF THE TIME, FOR ETERNITY.  SO, STAY FAR AWAY FROM JESUS' AND DIANE'S HOME, PEOPLE. 

love always,

Your Daughter, Diane Kay Olson-Nielsen

and

Your Son-in-Law, Jesus Christ Nielsen


DEAR MOM, JANICE JOHNSON OLSON, I LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH, I HAVE BEEN MISSING YOU FOR THE LONGEST TIME, I AM IN WEST DES MOINES, ON 88th STREET WITH LORD JESUS

MOM AND DAD, I KNOW THAT YOU ARE OUT THERE IN WEST DES MOINES LOOKING FOR ME AND I HAVE KNOWN THAT FOR THE LONGEST TIME AND HAVE BEEN TRYING TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOU BY TELEPHONE.  I LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH, MOM AND DAD, AND I AM SAFE AND SOUND WITH LORD JESUS RIGHT NOW, WHO IS TAKING CARE OF ME WHILE I HAVE  A TOOTH INFECTION, WHICH IS NOT VERY SEVERE BUT NEEDS DENTAL CARE. I WANT YOU TO KNOW, MOM AND DAD, THAT I HAVE BEEN MISSING YOU FOR THE LONGEST TIME AND FIGURED OUT THAT YOU WERE MISSING FROM MY LIFE ABOUT TEN YEARS AGO WHEN I FIRST MOVED TO WEST DES MOINES AND HAVE BEEN SAFE AND SOUND AND PROTECTED BY JESUS AND GOD ALMIGHTY EVER SINCE. I REALLY WISH THAT YOU WOULD GET SUPER BRAVE AND COME TO THE APARTMENT LISTED ABOVE -- YOU, JANICE JOHNSON OLSON, MY DEAR MOM, AND YOU, LYLE OLSON, MY DEAR DAD. I NEED HELP MOVING BY THE END OF THIS MONTH, MAY 28, 2018 AND REALLY NEED MY TRUE FAMILY'S HELP -- LYLE, JANICE, STEVEN AND JONAS. I AM SO GLAD TO KNOW THAT YOU HAVE BEEN IN WEST DES MOINES LOOKING FOR ME AND I HOPE SO MUCH TO SEE YOU IN THE NEAR FUTURE. IT HAS BROKEN MY HEART TIME AND TIME AGAIN TO KNOW THAT I HAVE BEEN MISSING IN YOUR LIVES SO VERY LONG. I HAVE BEEN A PROFESSOR IN WRITING AND COMPOSITION STUDIES AT THREE MAJOR UNIVERSITIES -- GEORGIA TECH IN ATLANTA, THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS, URBANA-CHAMPAIGN AND SUNY ALBANY IN ALBANY, NY FOR THE PAST TWENTY YEARS -- AND I HAVE BEEN AN EXTREMELY GIFTED AND BLESSED PROFESSOR. I HAVE A BLOG AT www.compositionstudies.com and A BLOG at www.writemystoryonyourheart and many, many other blogs professing to my faith in Jesus and they are such very beautiful and amazing blogs.

I REALLY HOPE TO SEE YOU, JANICE (MOM) AND LYLE AND STEVEN AND JONAS SOON. I LOVE YOU VERY DEARLY AND HAVE MISSED YOU SO VERY MUCH.


THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH OF WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME IN WEST DES MOINES, IOWA BY DIANE K. OLSON

I am very sick today -- I can't find a hospital near where I live that will help me and have only been hurt by the medications that they have given me in the past year. I don't even believe in pharmaceuticals because I have eaten healthy, vegetarian and organic for a very long time and take herbs and vitamins and nutrients all the time -- since childhood. What I am going through is very unfair and my church has not been there at all for me recently. I finally got through to my brother this evening but he is four hours away. I cannot get through to my mom at all right now but know that she would be very concerned about me. I miss her so very much and have been trying to reach her all day today and yesterday. The place where I have been living -- the outside, not the inside, has grown increasingly unfriendly to me over the past year and is not a healthy place to be living at all. The inside is beautiful but the outside is not at all. The person who I thought was my step-father but has not been treating me well and has been verbally abusive to me came and took my car away from me and I know that my real mom who raised me would never be married to this person and that both my parents (who raised me in Red Oak) would be extremely upset about what is happening to me right now -- I have taught at three major universities in composition studies and cultural studies the USA and came back to Iowa to help my family with a case of elder abuse involving my grandma. I have recently contacted both the Iowa Department of Civil Rights and the New York State Department of Education Office of Civil Rights (where I was PhD candidate at the State University of New York at Albany for five years) in the past month and filed complaints with both of them about my living situation and about how the hospitals have treated me and about not being supported by SUNY Albany faculty who I worked on my dissertation with in getting back to my university teaching career, which is blatant sexism and is being handled currently by the New York State Education Department, Office of Civil Rights. I am currently in great need of a dependable car and have repeatedly asked my church -- Lutheran Church of Hope, which is an extremely financially well-off church -- and they have repeatedly denied me any financial assistance, which is unholy, unrighteous and very wrong and blatant sexism, too. I tell everything that has happened over the past several years with that church on www.lutheranchurchofhope.info which speaks the absolute truth of my experiences. I have many, many blogs online that testify to my faith in Lord Jesus and His great love and compassion for humanity and also testify to everything that I have gone through in the past several years and I will NOT be silenced on any of these issues until they are properly resolved and until I am reunited with true family -- my mom, my dad, my brother, my nephew and my sister-in-law who love me very much -- and back in my university teaching career (all documented on my professional blog www.compositionstudies.com which I have had since 2004 and continue to write on frequently about teaching writing and social justice issues at the university level) and out ministering to people with the love and compassion of my Best Friend, Jesus, and your Lord and Savior Jesus. I love my family dearly and have always loved them. Thank you for listening and taking everything that I say seriously because it is very serious. Sincerely and with Great Love, Diane K. Olson


YOU, BEAUTIFUL CHILD OF GOD AND STRONG WOMAN OF FAITH IN JESUS, ARE A MIRACLE AND DEARLY, DEARLY LOVED BY GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER AND LORD JESUS

You, beautiful child of God and strong woman of faith in Jesus, are a miracle -- created, designed and blessed by God Our Almighty Heavenly Father for a purpose and on that purpose every day of your life, sharing the love and compassion of Jesus Christ as a minister and advocating for the oppressed, suffering and broken-hearted in the name of Jesus Christ -- those people -- refugees, children, the impoverished, the oppressed, the sick -- that Lord Jesus cares so greatly about and loves dearly and compassionately and wants them to always feel His presence at their sides -- just as you were put on this earth to do. Keep shining your light -- keep shining brightly until the day of King Jesus and forevermore. You are truly greatly blessed and have been and will continue to be a great blessing to so many more children of the one true King, Lord Jesus, who is coming back very soon in full glory and majesty and righteousness to restore peace -- the peace that passes all understanding -- and compassion and love and righteousness to the earth and humanity. IN JESUS' HOLY, RIGHTEOUS, BEAUTIFUL, AMAZING, GLORIOUS AND MOST OF ALL COMPASSIONATE AND LOVING NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE K. OLSON


THANK YOU, LORD JESUS, FOR YOUR AMAZING GRACE ON THE CROSS AND ALWAYS LOVING ME AND CARRYING AND STAYING BY MY SIDE FOREVER, WE EXPECTANTLY AWAIT YOUR RETURN AS A GRACIOUS AND LOVING AND ALMIGHTY AND GLORIOUS KING OF THE ENTIRE EARTH

THANK YOU, LORD JESUS, FOR ALWAYS LOVING ME AND CARING FOR ME AND WALKING WITH ME. YOU ARE AN AMAZING, COMPASSIONATE, KIND-HEARTED, MERCIFUL, GRACIOUS, LOVING GOD, AND I AM ETERNALLY GRATEFUL FOR WHAT YOU DID ON THE CROSS TO SAVE AND REDEEM HUMANITY. I AM ALSO VERY GRATEFUL FOR YOUR CONSTANT AND ABIDING AND EVERLASTING PRESENCE IN MY LIFE, HOW YOU CARRY ME THROUGH ALL THAT I GO THROUGH IN THIS WORLD, HOW YOU ARE ALWAYS BY MY SIDE, HOW YOU GIVE ME WORDS TO SPEAK YOUR TRUTHS TO THE WORLD, HOW YOU HAVE WATCHED OVER ME MY ENTIRE LIFE AND HOW YOU TENDERLY LOVE ME NO MATTER WHAT IS HAPPENING IN MY LIFE. I LOVE YOU, JESUS, I ADORE YOU, JESUS, AND YOU ARE TRULY, TRULY MY EVERYTHING. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


A TOTALLY BEAUTIFUL AND LOVING CHRISTMAS SONG CALLED THE CHRISTMAS SHOES, MAKES ME MISS MY MOM SO MUCH

Listening to a beautiful song YouTube called The Christmas Shoes, makes me totally cry. I used to hear this song on the radio station that I listen to but this year they did not play it all and I was reflecting yesterday how I really miss this beautiful song this Christmas Season. So, I was listening to YouTube this evening and suddenly the song just started playing and it made me realize that Lord Jesus knows that I totally love this song and is still very much in control of my life and knows that I am hurting right now. The song is about a little boy who needs money to buy his sick mom a pair of Christmas shoes because he wants his mama to look beautiful if mama meets Jesus tonight. It is one of the most beautiful Christmas songs that I have ever heard and is truly what this Christmas season is all about and even about the great love that not only this boy has for his mama but also the great love that I have for my true mom, who I am missing very much right now and wish so much was with me in my suffering right now. But I know that Lord Jesus is with me and played this beautiful song because I have missed hearing it on the radio and it speaks directly to my heart. Thank you, Lord Jesus. Love Always, Diane


MY PRAYER TO LORD JESUS, GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT ON DECEMBER 21st, 2017

MY PRAYER TO LORD JESUS AND OUR HEAVENLY FATHER ON DECEMBER 21, 2016 AND ALSO ON DECEMBER 21, 2017

DEAR LORD JESUS, OUR HEAVENLY FATHER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT,

DEAR LORD JESUS, I PRAY THAT YOU LIGHTEN UP THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON WITH YOUR GLORIOUS LIGHT AND LOVE AND BRING GREAT JOY AND PEACE TO EVERY PERSON WHO IS SUFFERING THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON. PLEASE, LORD JESUS, CONTINUE TO HEAL ME WITH YOUR LIGHT AND AMAZING LOVE AND GRACE. I PRAY, AGAIN, TODAY THAT YOU BRING THE HEALING TO ME AND MY FAMILY THAT HAS BEEN LONG AWAITED AND RESTORE OUR FAMILY THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON SO THAT WE CAN ENJOY THE HOLIDAYS TOGETHER. I PRAY AGAIN, FATHER AND LORD JESUS, THAT YOU PROVIDE ME WITH THE RESOURCES AND BLESSINGS TO START THE MINISTRIES THAT YOU HAVE PLACED ON MY HEART THIS YEAR www.jesushearts.org, www.compassionfortheafflicted.com and www.amazinggraceministries.org I ALSO PRAY THAT YOU CONTINUE TRANSFORMING ME INTO THAT GRACIOUS AND BEAUTIFUL MISSIONARY AND MINISTER OF YOUR AMAZING LOVE AND GRACE TO A WORLD THAT GREATLY NEEDS TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR AMAZING GRACE ON THE CROSS AND COMPASSION AND LOVE FOR THEM, LORD JESUS. I PRAY ALSO THAT YOU GIVE ME THE WORDS TO WRITE THE BOOKS ABOUT YOUR (JESUS') GREAT LOVE FOR THE MOST BROKEN AND SUFFERING PEOPLE OF THE WORLD AND YOUR AMAZING GRACE THROUGH FAITH IN WHAT YOU (JESUS) COMPASSIONATELY AND LOVINGLY DID ON THE CROSS FOR US. DEAR LORD JESUS, PLEASE SHOWER YOUR LOVE AND LIGHT DOWN UPON EVERY HURTING PERSON THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON, GIVE THEM THE PEACE THAT PASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING, AND WRAP YOUR LOVING ARMS AROUND THEM AND LET THEM FEEL HOW MUCH YOU LOVE THEM AND ARE WITH THEM. IN JESUS' COMPASSIONATE, LOVING, HOLY AND GLORIOUS NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


DO NOT MISTAKE A COMPASSIONATE AND LOVING HEART FOR JESUS FOR A WARRIOR AND ADVOCATE SUCH AS MYSELF WHO WILL STAND UP AGAINST FINANCIAL, INSTITUTIONAL AND SOCIAL INJUSTICES AGAINST WOMEN SUCH AS MYSELF AND OTHER WOMEN WHO FACE FINANCIAL ABUSE

I WOULD ADVISE ANYONE WHO ASSUMES THAT HAVING A HEART FOR JESUS AND GREAT COMPASSION, LIKE I DO, MEANS THAT A PERSON IS UNWILLING TO FIGHT STRONGLY FOR WHAT SHE BELIEVES IN OR DEFEND WOMEN WHO ARE TREATED UNJUSTLY, ESPECIALLY BY UNIVERSITIES SUCH AS I HAVE BEEN, TO THINK AGAIN AND THINK TWICE BECAUSE BELOW THIS LOVING AND COMPASSIONATE SURFACE IS A MIGHTY WARRIOR AND ADVOCATE WHO WILL ALWAYS STAND UP STRONGLY AGAINST INJUSTICES -- ESPECIALLY INJUSTICES AGAINST WOMEN -- IN THE WORLD AND IN UNIVERSITIES. LORD JESUS WAS THE SAME WAY WHEN HE WALKED THE EARTH -- VERY GENTLE AND VERY COMPASSIONATE AND VERY HUMBLE -- YET ALSO VERY MIGHTY AND VERY STRONG AND ANGERED BY THE INJUSTICES AND LACK OF RIGHTEOUSNESS IN THE WORLD -- BOTH WHEN HE WALKED THE EARTH BUT EVEN MORESO NOW AS HE WATCHES OVER WHAT IS HAPPENING ON THE EARTH IN THE YEAR 2017. LIKE LORD JESUS, I AM BOTH A MINISTER OF LORD JESUS' LOVE AND COMPASSION AND GRACE TO THE WORLD AND A MIGHTY ADVOCATE AGAINST OPPRESSION AND ABUSE IN THE WORLD, ESPECIALLY ABUSE AGAINST WOMEN. I HAVE BEEN THE RECIPIENT OF ABUSE LATELY AND IN THE PAST AND SO HAVE FEMALE MEMBERS OF MY FAMILY LIKE MY GRANDMA AND MY MOM, AND I WILL NOT -- LET ME REPEAT: I WILL NOT -- STAND FOR THIS TREATMENT ANY LONGER. I HAVE SUFFERED SEVERE FINANCIAL LOSSES (AND SO HAS MY MOM) DUE TO THE SEXIST WAYS THAT I WAS TREATED AS A UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR AND PHD CANDIDATE AND I AM NOW BACK TO WRITING ABOUT THAT SEXISM AND INJUSTICE AND WILL NOT STOP UNTIL THINGS ARE MADE RIGHT FINANCIALLY FOR BOTH MYSELF AND MY MOM AND OTHER WOMEN WHO ARE SUFFERING FINANCIAL AND VERBAL ABUSE. IN JESUS' HOLY, RIGHTEOUS, COMPASSIONATE AND GLORIOUS NAME. SINCERELY, DIANE K. OLSON


MY PRAYER TO LORD JESUS, GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT ON DECEMBER 10th, 2017

DO NOT BE AFRAID, DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED, FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD (JESUS) IS WITH YOU WHEREVER YOU GO -- INSTEAD, ALWAYS BE COURAGEOUS AND STRONG AND ALWAYS STAND UP FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN -- STAND UP FOR THE COMPASSION, LOVE AND AMAZING GRACE OF LORD JESUS AND GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER, WHO WILL ALWAYS STAND WITH YOU IN ALL THAT YOU DO.

DEAR LORD JESUS, GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT,

I PRAY, AGAIN, THIS EVENING FOR THE RESTORATION OF MY HEALTH AND MY TRUE FAMILY -- FOR THE LOVING AND UNBREAKABLE BOND BETWEEN ME AND MY MOM. I ALSO PRAY FOR THE FINANCIAL RESOURCES FOR A CAR AND FOR MOVING SOON BECAUSE I AM REALLY, REALLY TIRED OF BEING STRANDED IN THE SUBURBS OF WDM. I PRAY THAT YOU, LORD JESUS, OPEN THE EYES OF MY MOM'S, MY BROTHER'S AND MY FRIENDS' HEARTS TO THESE PRESSING NEEDS OF MINE AND MAKE THEM CONSIDER WHAT IT WOULD FEEL LIKE WERE THEY TO BE IN MY SITUATION. LORD JESUS, YOU KNOW THAT I HAVE ALWAYS STOOD UP STRONGLY FOR MY FAMILY AND MOST ESPECIALLY MY MOM, AND THAT I NEED MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO STAND UP STRONGLY FOR ME RIGHT NOW. WHAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING IS JUST NOT RIGHT AT ALL, AND I KNOW THAT YOU LORD JESUS ARE ALL ABOUT RIGHTEOUSNESS AND MAKING THINGS RIGHT AND I NEED FOR YOU, LORD JESUS, TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT IN MY LIFE AGAIN AND RESTORE ALL THAT HAS BEEN WRONGLY TAKEN FROM ME -- I KNOW THAT YOU LORD JESUS WILL HOLD EACH AND EVERY PERSON AND CHURCH WHO HAS HURT ME ACCOUNTABLE AND THAT YOU ARE THE SILENT LISTENER TO EVERYTHING THAT HAS BEEN SAID TO ME. YOU KNOIW LORD JESUS THAT THERE HAS BEEN A GREAT DEAL OF SEXISM AND GENDER DISCRIMINATION DIRECTED AT ME, ESPECIALLY WHEN I WAS TRYING TO COMPLETE MY DISSERTATION AT ALBANY, AND I PRAY, IN JESUS' HOLY AND RIGHTEOUS NAME, THAT I RECEIVE PROPER CREDIT IN THE FORM OF A DOCTORAL DEGREE FOR ALL OF THE MANY, MANY WRITINGS THAT I DID FOR THAT DISSERTATION. YOU KNOW, LORD JESUS, THAT I HAVE STRONGLY RAISED THESE ISSUES WITH THE ADMINISTRATION AT SUNY ALBANY IN THE PAST SEVERAL MONTHS AND I PRAY THAT THEY TAKE ACTION SOON ON WHAT OCCURRED WITH THAT DISSERTATION AND MY COMMITTEE AND THE GRADUATE DIRECTOR. I AM REALLY, REALLY TIRED OF SUFFERING FROM A SITUATION THAT WAS NOT CAUSED BY ME AT ALL. I SHOULD NOT BE IN THE SITUATION THAT I AM IN RIGHT NOW -- I SHOULD BE TEACHING COMPOSITION STUDIES, CULTURAL STUDIES AND POETICS FOR LIVABLE SALARY. YOU KNOW, VERY WELL, LORD JESUS ALL OF THE SACRIFICES THAT I HAVE MADE IN HELPING AND ADVOCATING FOR MY MOM AND MY FAMILY WITH THE ELDER ABUSE THAT MY GRANDMA SO SADLY AND WRONGLY EXPERIENCED AND THE DEFRAUDING OF MY GRANDAD'S TRUST AND FINANCIAL LEGACY BY A BANK AND THE DEFRAUDING OF MY MOM'S RETIREMENT MONEY. THESE ARE ALL THINGS THAT ME AND MY MOM SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAD TO GO THROUGH AND SHOULD NEVER HAD TO HAVE EXPERIENCED, AND I PRAY, IN JESUS' HOLY AND RIGHTEOUS NAME, THAT YOU, LORD JESUS AND GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER, MAKE EVERYTHING RIGHT FINANCIALLY FOR MY MOM AND HER WELL-DESERVED RETIREMENT THAT SHE HAS NOT RECEIVED YET. I ALSO PRAY THAT YOU MAKE EVERYTHING FINANCIALLY RIGHT IN MY LIFE BECAUSE I HAVE WORKED VERY HARD THROUGHOUT MY LIFE YET EARNED VERY LITTLE BECAUSE OF UNJUST COMPENSATION SYSTEM IN ACADEMIA AND UNIVERSITIES, WHICH I HAVE ALSO WRITTEN AGAINST ON MY SITE www.compositionstudies.com. I REFUSE TO REMAIN SILENT ON THESE ISSUES ANY LONGER, AND I WANT MY HARD-EARNED DEGREE SO I CAN CONTINUE TEACHING, A MAJOR PASSION THAT YOU GAVE TO ME, LORD JESUS, AND THAT I AM VERY GIFTED AT DOING. IN SUM, I HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF THE INJUSTICES AND SEXISM IN MY AND MY MOM'S SITUATIONS. WHAT HAS HAPPENED IS GROSSLY UNFAIR TO BOTH ME AND MY MOM. IN JESUS' HOLY, RIGHTEOUS, GLORIOUS AND BEAUTIFUL NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE K. OLSON


MY PRAYER TO LORD JESUS, GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT ON DECEMBER 8th, 2017

From the Beatitudes: Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called children of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.

Dear Lord Jesus, Almighty Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit,

What I want and pray for most in this world is peace -- the peace that passes all understanding -- for all people -- the peace that only King Jesus can give. Lord Jesus, this world so greatly needs your peaceful and loving presence right now. I pray today, again, that You, Lord Jesus, return to this earth this Christmas season and restore peace, truth, justice and order to this world -- and compassion and love, most especially. Thank you, Lord Jesus and Father, for making me a Lutheran, one of the most peaceful denominations of Your church, and blessing me with a peaceful place to live. I also pray for a peaceful place to worship you, Lord Jesus, this Christmas, with my mom, who is also a very peaceful person. Please only play peaceful Christmas worship music from now on during this Christmas/Advent season. Lord Jesus, bless all my friends who are reading this today with the peace that passes all understanding and also, joy -- great joy -- this Christmas season. I love you, Lord Jesus, I adore you, Lord Jesus, and thank you, Lord Jesus, for always remaining by my side and carrying me. I pray again for healing and restoration of my family and my health and to serve you, Lord Jesus, in all of the ways that you have made me to serve you and share Your love and compassion and amazing grace with the world. MAY I WALK IN YOUR WILL AND YOUR WAY, TO THE GLORY OF YOUR HOLY NAME, LORD JESUS AND HEAVENLY FATHER. IN JESUS' HOLY, RIGHTEOUS, BEAUTIFUL, GRACIOUS AND MOST OF ALL LOVING NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


WE EXPECTANTLY AWAIT CHRIST'S RETURN AS AN ALMIGHTY, AWESOME, COMPASSIONATE AND LOVING KING THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON

 I don't always understand Lord Jesus and God Our Almighty Heavenly Father's timing in restoration and healing, but I must trust that it will be perfect in my life. I pray that this Christmas season is the most joyous and best Christmas of my life. I have been receiving the strong feeling and conviction this past week that I would like to go to school for ministerial training and have been researching programs, only have not found the right program that matches my faith yet. I trust that when the time is right, God and Lord Jesus will send me to the right one and send me to wherever They need me to minister in the world. Also, remember, in this Christmas season, that Lord Jesus is returning soon as an almighty and awesome and all-powerful and compassionate King and all will be made right not only in my life but in all of our lives and across America and the entire earth. We expectantly await Christ's return this Christmas season. Glory be to God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


MY FAITH IN LORD JESUS AND OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER IS STRONGER THAN WHAT IS TAUGHT IN MANY MINISTERIAL PROGRAMS

I have been thinking recently how I might like to go to school for ministerial training; however, when I look at the various programs available, I find nothing that matches my faith in Lord Jesus and my understanding of His love, amazing grace on the cross and compassion -- most especially Jesus' compassion for the hurting and afflicted. The fact of the matter is that I would prefer to be trained -- as I have been doing -- by Lord Jesus and God Our Almighty Heavenly Father themselves. Many things for me -- like university teaching and advocating and ministering -- just come naturally for me -- it is part of my make-up and who Father and Lord Jesus made me to be and the gifts that They have blessed me with. Just can't seem to find a program that matches my faith in Jesus, which has grown tremendously in the past three years. IN JESUS' HOLY, BEAUTIFUL AND MOST OF ALL COMPASSIONATE NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


THE DEVALUATION AND UNDER-COMPENSATION OF COMPASSIONATE AND NURTURING LABOR BREAKS LORD JESUS' HEART AND BREAKS MINE, TOO

This is from my journal on October 6th, 2017, an issue that has been near to my heart and mind for many years and that I have written about previously. love always, Diane
People who express compassion and nurturance in our culture are devalued and under-compensated. People who are in the caring professions -- such as teaching, moms, nurses -- are not adequately compensated for their labors because we live in a culture in America that does not care for one another enough and does not properly value compassion. This situation and devaluation of nurturing, compassionate labor saddens Lord Jesus (and me) and should break our hearts like it breaks Lord Jesus' heart and breaks mine, too. Sincerely, Diane

Dear Ann and Libby and all my Facebook Friends, I truly believe that when we stand before Lord Jesus someday we will not only be judged for our faith in Lord Jesus as Our SAVIOR BUT ALSO FOR HOW WELL (OR NOT) WE DEMONSTRATED LORD JESUS' LOVE, GRACE AND COMPASSION TO THE PEOPLE IN OUR LIVES AND THAT WE ENCOUNTERED THROUGHOUT OUR LIVES. AS CHRISTIANS, JUST KNOWING LORD JESUS AS OUR SAVIOR IS NOT ENOUGH -- LORD JESUS AND GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER WANT US TO LIVE THE GOSPELS TO THEIR FULLEST AND LIVE LIKE LORD JESUS COMPASSIONATELY AND LOVINGLY LIVED WHEN JESUS WALKED THE EARTH TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO AND COMPASSIONATELY AND LOVINGLY HEALED AND COMFORTED THE SICK, HURTING, BROKEN-HEARTED AND BROKEN. LORD JESUS WANTS US NOT TO ONLY KNOW HIM AS OUR SAVIOR BUT ALSO THE CARE, LOVE AND COMPASSION THAT JESUS AND OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER SO GREATLY VALUE. WITH LOVE, DIANE 


DEAR LORD JESUS AND GOD ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER, I PRAY AGAIN TODAY FOR THE FINANCIAL RESOURCES AND BLESSINGS THAT I NEED TO CONTINUE YOUR WORK

Mixed feelings these past few days, tugging me between writing about Lord Jesus' great and amazing love and continuing my ministerial work on Jesus' behalf and my need for employment and a livable income which would mean going back to university teaching in composition, poetics and cultural studies, which I also have a passion for. I so much wish and pray that I was in a salaried university teaching position yet I also definitely and passionately want to continue writing about Our Lord and Savior Jesus. Dear Lord Jesus and Our Almighty Heavenly Father, you know how long that I have prayed for the resources and blessings and finances to continue this ministerial work that you have been doing through me these past several years, so again, today, I pray for the resources, blessings and finances to continue this work. If I go back to university teaching, it would have to be the right writing and composition studies program that allows me to do both work and would provide a decent and livable income. Dear Lord Jesus, help me to sort all of this out and provide me with the direction and guidance along the path that you want me to go. Also, please heal and restore my family again, which still breaks my heart big time. Help my family, Lord Jesus, to understand the value and necessity of the writing that I do on Your and Our Almighty Heavenly Father's amazing grace and love for humanity. Just intervene in everything that has been going on and all of these mixed-feelings and needs. I want to walk in Your will and Your way, Lord Jesus, yet I need financial blessings to continue this work, as You surely know already. IN JESUS' HOLY AND BEAUTIFUL NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


MY PRAYER TO LORD JESUS, OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT ON SEPTEMBER 21st, 2017

Dear Lord Jesus, Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit,

Again, I come to you today, to ask for physical healing and restoration, not only for me but for all of my family and friends who are in need of healing -- the healing that only You, Lord Jesus and Father, can provide. Thank you for being in the process of mending my relationship with my mom, who is so very dear to me. Thank you for the constant provision of my needs during this walk of faith that I have been on with You, Lord Jesus, and Father. I pray once again that bring your glorious light and love into my home. I also pray Lord Jesus that You return soon as the all-loving, glorious and almighty King and that you shake the whole world with holy thunder and bring the earth the peace that passes all understanding. What an amazing day awaits us and the entire earth when You return, Lord Jesus, with Your peace, compassion, righteousness and amazing grace. Lord Jesus, today, I rest in your promises and thank you for all of the many, many blessings you have provided to me throughout my life. IN JESUS' BEAUTIFUL, GLORIOUS, HOLY, LOVING AND COMPASSIONATE NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


KNOW TODAY THAT YOU ARE LOVED AND ADORED AND CARED FOR BY OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS AND OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER

I am learning today that I need to be kind to myself and not internalize the judgments of other people -- which truly do not matter in the light of what Lord Jesus and Our Almighty Heavenly Father think of us and know that is true about who we are -- beautiful, deeply loved, deeply cherished children of God. It simply does not matter what the world says about you when you know that you are loved and cherished and deeply cared for by Lord Jesus just the way you are -- you are always very beautiful in the eyes of Lord Jesus and Our Heavenly Father because you were beautifully and perfectly made by Them and They do not make mistakes -- You are NOT a mistake and You are NOT an accident -- Your life has purpose in Christ Jesus who adores and loves you and your life is a miracle to Our Heavenly Father who created you in your mom's womb. This is what I am learning as I walk with Jesus and my Heavenly Father and this is what I want to share with the world. You are made by Jesus and Our Heavenly Father to be loved and cherished by Them, not to be judged by the world. The world is wrong in its judgments but Lord Jesus and Our Heavenly Father are righteous and compassionate and loving and They truly care and have deep compassion and love for you when you suffer. They, in Their almighty power and justice, want to restore your joy and your happiness, and Their loving grace always has the final word in anything that you are going through. In Jesus' name. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


OUR LORD AND SAVIOR AND COMING KING JESUS WANTS TO END ALL SUFFERING AND RESTORE JOY AND PEACE AND COMPASSION TO THE EARTH AND ALL OF HIS DEARLY LOVED CHILDREN

I have been thinking a lot about joy recently and what brings me joy. Teaching used to bring me a lot of joy and I was very happy teaching. Now, ministering brings me a lot of joy and advocating against injustices brings me a lot of joy -- alleviating suffering and teaching about Lord Jesus' love, amazing grace and compassion for all of humanity brings me great joy. Christian singers like Jamie Grace, Britt Nicole, Francisca Batistelli and Mandisa bring me joy -- great joy -- to listen to their music. My little nephew brings me joy and I want to spend more time with my nephew, if only my brother would bring him to see me. Being with my mom brings me great joy because she is such a beautiful, kind-hearted and loving person. Things that do NOT bring me joy are criticisms and judgments -- we are not here on this earth to judge one another and criticize one another -- that is such a counter-productive, unjoyful thing to experience and to do. Lord Jesus wants our hearts to be filled with joy, no matter our circumstances in life. It hurts Lord Jesus when we suffer and people are not kind and compassionate and loving towards us -- Lord Jesus truly feels for us when we are suffering and wants us to experience great joy in His amazing love and grace for us. He wants Christian music that is joyful and celebratory -- like Jamie Grace's music in particular -- NOT Christian music that persecutes and judges which is not actually Christian at all. Lord Jesus wants us to love one another and show compassion and care and grace to one another and be grateful for all that we have been given by our Heavenly Father, especially in the heartland of America. I am trying to be grateful and joyful today yet still I am suffering from what has been happening to my family and my physical condition -- things that I did not cause at all. I pray, in Jesus' name, to experience great joy again and that Lord Jesus and our Almighty Heavenly Father play joyful, celebratory music and put a stop to all hurtful music that portends to be Christian but really is not Christian at all. It is NOT Christian at all to judge people and Lord Jesus wants us to be loving and compassionate and caring to one another -- that was His great commandment in the Gospels. We need far more care, compassion and love in our nation today -- we are only a great nation by virtue of how much we show compassion and love to the suffering and marginalized and outcast of the world and our nation. We need leaders in our nation again who truly care and want to do something about the suffering in this world and seek solutions and healing and bring peace and are filled with the Holy Spirit. I pray for these things today, in Jesus' name -- for peace and compassion and love in my family and in our nation and in the world. I pray that Lord Jesus and God Our Almighty Father put an end to my suffering and all of the suffering in the world and bring peace, joy, love and compassion to the world and all of the dear children of God and Lord Jesus who are suffering and hurting today from circumstance that are beyond their control. Lord Jesus, we need you to return soon as a glorious, compassionate and loving King who will restore order and peace and glory and love to the world. We need you so much today, Lord Jesus, the world needs you so please come soon in full and passionate glory and bring joy and peace to all of Your children on this earth. IN JESUS' GLORIOUS, HOLY, PEACEFUL, JOYFUL AND LOVING AND COMPASSIONATE NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


I NEED ASSISTANCE -- FINANCIAL AND TRANSPORTATION -- ASSISTANCE FROM MY FAMILY, MY FRIENDS AND MY CHURCH -- LUTHERAN CHURCH OF HOPE -- IN BRINGING THESE JESUS-GIVEN VISIONS/MINISTRIES INTO EXISTENCE

Dear Mom, Friends and Lutheran Church of Hope,

I love you very much but I need for you and my church and my friends to support me in bringing these ministries into existence: www.amazinggraceministries.org www.jesushearts.org www.compassionfortheafflicted.com www.compositionstudies.com -- They are very beautiful visions of ministries that have been given to me by Lord Jesus and Our Heavenly Father and I need support from my family, my friends and my church. It is sexism and gender-bias to ignore my requests for assistance and my financial and transportation needs right now. You know that I am a wonderful person who has done absolutely nothing wrong at all. I was a wonderful and very passionate university teacher who taught passionately and lovingly. If my family, my friends and my church cannot support these ministries -- which are so greatly needed in the world -- then you will be held accountable by Lord Jesus and God Our Almighty Heavenly Father because you breaking Jesus' commandment that we love, assist and care for one another and support one another and show compassion to one another. You know that I have needed financial support and assistance and transportation for the longest time now -- yet you (mom), my friends and my church have repeatedly ignored my requests for assistance in these regards. You took my car away from me, when you should NOT have taken my car -- and I do have legal entitlement to have that car returned to me immediately. The way you all have been ignoring my needs is sexism and it is wrong and I ask for you to search your hearts, as Jesus wants you to do, and see what you are able to help me with and provide for me today and this weekend. I am tired of being pathologized (which again, is sexism because women are wrongly pathologized and judged based on their bodies instead of their hearts and their minds in our culture today) by my family, by my church and by my friends -- it is blatant sexism and it is WRONG, totally wrong. Also, I need to go grocery shopping today or tomorrow, and I need a car to take myself grocery shopping -- and I am asking, again, that all of the people reading this email would provide me with support in the form of a dependable car, which I have needed for the longest time, to go grocery shopping, to be out in the world with people and to conduct and build these ministries. To not provide me with this support that I so desperately need, is sexism, and I want a family, friends and a church that respects and honors me as a daughter of God, and you all have NOT been doing that at all by ignoring my needs -- I need to go grocery shopping today and I need food today. Also, to ignore and not respond to the entirety of this email is sexism and Lord Jesus will hold you accountable for your indifference and the ways you all have been treating me and ignoring me. I was offended yesterday when I talked to who I thought was my friend Charlene and instead of helping me she wanted to take me to the hospital -- and that is wrong because that is pathologizing me instead of helping me with these ministries. I am also offended by the way that my mom has been speaking to me over email -- harshly judging me based on my physical appearance instead of my heart and my mind and my ministry work and teaching work, which is also sexism and I am tired of being talked to and treated in a sexist and uncompassionate and uncaring manner by my family, by my friends and by my church. It is so very wrong and unGodly and unJesus-like.

Sincerely,

Diane Kay Olson, Your Neglected Daughter, Friend and Church Member


CONTINUE WRITING MY STORY ON YOUR HEART, LORD JESUS, I ADORE YOU

Okay, today started out difficult and I really want to be teaching right now because it is the start of a new school year and I do not understand why Lord Jesus has me where I am at right now and I really want to be any place in the USA but Des Moines and Iowa right now -- however, I will keep on writing and dreaming if that is what Lord Jesus and God Our Almighty Heavenly Father want me to be doing. Dear Lord Jesus, you know how I woke-up this morning with thoughts of my work in cultural studies and representational politics, and you know that I would love to be in the classroom teaching composition, poetics and cultural studies; however, you have sent me on this detour for a purpose, and I will keep going forward -- just, please, give me a better place to live and transportation (make my family return my car to me, in Jesus' name) and restore my family, especially my compassionate and loving Mom -- I know you have the almighty power to do this and I pray that you do this soon, like I have been praying for the longest time. I would also love to be out in the world ministering to people and giving suffering people hope, in Jesus' name. So, Lord Jesus, show me the way and restore all that is broken in my family. None of this is my fault at all and I have been waiting for physical healing for the longest. Please bless me with peace of mind today and calm the storms in my life and surround me with Jesus-loving, compassionate people, in Jesus' mighty and compassionate and holy name. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


THERE ARE VERY SERIOUS PROBLEMS WITH MANY MALE CHRISTIAN SINGERS WHO JUDGE AND PERSECUTE WOMEN OF FAITH WITH THEIR LYRICS AND I HAVE HEARD ABSOLUTELY ENOUGH OF THAT TYPE OF CHRISTIAN MUSIC TODAY

I am so tired of hyper-masculine Christian music that harshly judges women -- it is not Christian, in the first place, to judge and persecute women of faith. I pray today, in Jesus' name, that God Our Almighty Heavenly Father gives me a different Christian radio station to listen where the majority of songs are sung and written by female Christian singers like Jamie Grace, Britt Nicole, Francisca Batistelli and Mandisa -- the radio station that I have been listening to changed managers last fall and ever since then the music has just not been good at all and primarily all male Christian singers who are not compassionate nor loving in their tone and lyrics -- so unlike the Lord Jesus and Heavenly Father that I know. I have just heard enough of it today, and I want true, passionate Christian music that is joyful and celebratory and represents our compassionate, loving, gracious and forgiving Lord and Savior Jesus. Here are the songs about Jesus that I love on this website -- www.songs.express, and I pray that the radio station either starts playing them again or else gets a new manager or else Lord Jesus gives me a new Christian station to listen to that does not play masculine songs that judge women. Male Christian singers and songwriters have NO RIGHT putting down and judging Christian women NOR any women for that matters -- DAUGHTERS of Our Heavenly Father and Lord Jesus who are to be treated and sung about in respectful, life-giving ways. I HAVE JUST HEARD ABSOLUTELY ENOUGH OF IT TODAY!!! SINCERELY, DIANE K. OLSON


MY PRAYER TO LORD JESUS, OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT ON AUGUST 22nd, 2017

When I get sad, like I have been today, I remind myself of how very blessed we are to have born in the Heartland of America, one of the most peaceful and abundantly blessed places in America and on earth. So, thank you, Lord Jesus and Heavenly Father for all that you have blessed me with in this amazing life. I pray, again, today that you bring peace and compassion back into my family and that our family is restored to how it was before this all began. And please, Lord Jesus and Heavenly Father only play Christian music that gently worships and represents you in the ways that You want to be worshipped and represents you in the ways that You want to be represented -- as loving, compassionate, forgiving, gracious, merciful and almighty -- I know you are listening to me because you just started playing "GOOD, GOOD FATHER" on the radio that sings, "YOU'RE A GOOD, GOOD FATHER AND I AM LOVED BY YOU. ... AND YOU KNOW JUST WHAT WE NEED BEFORE WE SAY A WORD." So, you know, Father how our family needs healing right now, and I pray that you bring that about soon. Also, Father and Lord Jesus, continue making me into that loving, compassionate and kind-hearted minister of Your Love and Amazing Grace that I long to be for You in the world. IN JESUS' NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


MY JOURNEY AND WALK OF FAITH WITH LORD JESUS AND GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER

Sometimes it is difficult remembering that our lives belong to God -- my life belongs to God and Jesus -- and that they are ALWAYS in control even when we would like to be the ones in control. They are far more powerful and almighty than we often recognize and accept, and They know us much, much better than we know ourselves. They know all of our limitations, hurts, pains, struggles, anxieties, panic attacks, etc. And They always are our healers and our comforters and our caretakers and our nurturers -- especially, Lord Jesus, who cares immensely about all of us and our pains. I know Lord Jesus is with me in all that I am going through right now -- He has pledged to never leave my side through it all and He has given me these wonderful visions of ministries that I really hope and pray get to continue and come into full existence. I am willing to do the hard work, with Lord Jesus' help. Finances are an issue right now, as I know they are for many people, and I keep praying for the blessings that I need. Sometimes, I guess, Lord Jesus and God Our Father make us wait as they build our faith, strength and endurance and patience, and they have been making me wait for a long time -- yet, I definitely see progress in the faith department of my life and through the ministering that I have been doing. So, I imagine that the wait has been and is going to be well worth it. IN JESUS' HOLY AND LOVING AND COMPASSIONATE NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


MY PRAYER TO LORD JESUS, OUR HEAVENLY FATHER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT ON JULY 6th, 2017

July 6, 2017
Dear Lord Jesus, Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit,
Thank you for another beautiful day of life here in the USA. Thank you for the healing and restoration that you have planned for me and my family. May I continue to walk (and write and speak) in Your will and Your way, to the Glory of Your Holy Name, Lord Jesus. I pray that you provide for all of my needs and my family's needs, and just remain by my side in everything that I do. Thank you for the constant reminders of your presence in my life, Lord Jesus -- You know that I love the song by Francisca Batistelli, Holy Spirit, You are welcome here, and HOLY SPIRIT, you are welcome here, always. God bless and provide for all of the people in my life who are also in need of healing and restoration. May I continue to speak and write Your words, Lord Jesus, of hope and mercy and love and grace to the broken, broken-hearted and oppressed of this world, as You, Father and Lord Jesus, have called me into this world to do. May I continue to use the many abundant gifts that You have given to me to Your Glory and draw people closer in faith to You, Lord Jesus. IN JESUS' HOLY, GLORIOUS, COMPASSIONATE, LOVING AND BEAUTIFUL NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


MY PRAYER TO LORD JESUS, OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT ON JULY 4th, 2017

Dear Lord Jesus, Our Almighty Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit,

I would love to be near an ocean today -- I have wanted to go to the ocean for the longest time and it would be so peaceful to experience an ocean again. However, I am in the middle of Iowa right now and the middle of summer -- even more reason to need the ocean -- and I would really appreciate Lord Jesus and Heavenly Father if you would put an end to my suffering and grant full and complete restoration to my family and myself so that I can go forth in the world as a teacher, minister and advocate for you, Lord Jesus, like I have been doing with my writing over the past 3-4 years. I prayed tonight Lord Jesus and Father that you get me well enough to write the books, in their entirety, about your great and enduring and compassionate and gracious love for humanity, especially those who are suffering and heart-broken the most, as our Lord and Savior. That is what I have been doing on my websites www.jesuslovesyou.love and www.godlovesyou.co and that is what I am passionate about doing, along with the teaching of writing (www.compositionstudies.com), so please, I pray in Jesus' name, get me well enough to go forth with these plans and any other plans that you have for me. I am grateful for another day of life, and I pray for brilliant, fourth of July fireworks this evening. And I pray for my family -- that we are reunited in our love, compassion and care for one another. IN JESUS' HOLY, COMPASSIONATE, LOVING AND BEAUTIFUL NAME, I PRAY. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


MY OTHER JESUS-GIVEN PASSION -- TEACHING COMPOSITION AND WRITING THAT TRULY MATTERS IN THE WORLD AND BUILDS STUDENTS' FAITH IN THEMSELVES AS WRITERS

07/04/2017
FIRST AND FOREMOST, WE NEED TO TEACH STUDENTS TO HAVE FAITH IN THEMSELVES AS WRITERS AND THEIR HEART-FELT, GOD-GIVEN PURPOSES WHEN THEY WRITE
First and foremost, we, as composition teachers, need to teach students to have faith in themselves as writers and their heart-felt, God-given purposes when writing. Too often, our impulse when teaching writing is to judge students and their writings but so often, that only stymies the writing process and causes students to lose faith in themselves and their purposes as writers. We need composition studies courses that inspire students to use writing creatively and purposively to understand, imagine and creatively refashion the worlds that they live in -- that is what I would call faith-based, visionary writing that encourages students to pursue their creative, imaginative purposes in writing rather than merely having them perform writing for our evaluation, assessments and judgments -- writing that really has no purpose in the larger world and does not effect social and educational change and seems useless to many students, hence their resistances to writing tasks. When the focus of writing is on evaluation and judgment, that does not build and encourage students' faith in themselves as writers, so we need to change our focus, as composition teachers, to creating and designing the kinds of writing assignments that do build and encourage students' faith in themselves as writers who have a purpose in writing/communicating/expressing and have something important to say that matters to the world beyond the classrooms and beyond the university. We build students' faith in themselves as writers by showing them ways that they can make and use their writing to imaginatively shape and transform and change the social worlds that they inhabit. We build students' faith in themselves as writers when we allow students to write about the issues and concerns that are near and dear to their hearts and that they care deeply about and feel compelled to write about -- and all students -- and teachers, too -- are born with the need to express and the desire to communicate what matters most to them -- that is why expressive letter-writing and song-writing are two of the most compelling forms of communication and resonate with so many people -- because letter-writing and song-writing come from a need to be heard and to interact with other people and effect/move the people who encounter the writing. Hence, part of building students' faiths in themselves as writers also includes offering them opportunities to engage in these forms of expressive, communicative writing and allowing them to do the writing that they truly love, need and feel compelled to do -- writing that comes from the heart and also from a concern about improving the world and making it a more compassionate, responsive place. We, as composition teachers, need to understand that our students' often possess fresh and compelling visions of how they would like the world to be and how they would improve the worlds that they inhabit, and by encouraging students to write about their visions for a better world, we are empowering them and teaching them to have faith in themselves as writers and communicators whose words truly matter and have far greater power than simply being evaluated and institutionally judged, as composition teachers are too frequently and unfortunately called upon to do by our universities. In order to build our students' faiths in themselves as writers, we have to give up our roles as evaluators and taskmasters and imagine ourselves as co-creators and co-visionaries and co-communicators with our students who foster a sense of creative and visionary and heart-felt purpose when writing -- that is the type of writing that most builds students' faith in themselves writers, when they see their writing reaching out to and impacting the world around them and communicating their dearest concerns, especially to engaged listeners. This is the form and type of writing that I aim to teach in my classes -- faith-based, social justice, visionary writing -- and I am still seeking a university that will bring me aboard to teach the forms of writing that I describe and advocate for on this blog. If you teach at or know of such a place, I would be happy to hear about it. My email address is dianekolson@gmail.com. MORE YET TO COME ON THIS BLOG IN THE FUTURE. Sincerely, Diane K. Olson


WE NEED TRULY COMPASSIONATE, LOVING AND CARING MINISTRIES THAT TRULY OPERATE IN JESUS' NAME -- LIFE 107.1 IS NOT SUCH A MINISTRY ANYMORE

If you are hurting today like I am, please know that Lord Jesus loves you so very much and is with you and cares deeply and compassionately about everything that you are going through. Lord Jesus and God Our Almighty Heavenly Father will never stop loving you and view you as Their precious, deeply-loved child, and Their loving grace, compassion and justice will have the final say in all that you are going through. Life is not supposed to be a trial, it is supposed to be an amazing and beautiful and miraculous gift from God Our Almighty Heavenly Father and Our Creator who loves us and cares for us so dearly and wants for us to enjoy the gift of life and appreciate the gift of life. Any ministry that does not teach these things about Lord Jesus and God Our Almighty Heavenly Father is NOT a true ministry and is NOT operating in Jesus' Name. I have been hurt by a radio station that purports to be a ministry but does not accurately and rightly represent what Lord Jesus and Our Heavenly Father are truly about in Their love, care and compassion for us. I have been hurt by the male christianity promoted on the station that harshly judges and criticizes women. I pray, in Jesus' name, that the station is held accountable and even taken off of the air for its most recent selections. I write about these issues at www.life171.com. We need compassionate, loving, caring ministries that truly represent the heart and compassion of Lord Jesus to the world, and I pray again today for the resources and blessings that are needed to continue my Amazing Grace Ministries -- www.amazinggraceministries.org -- because the world so desperately needs Lord Jesus' compassion and kindness and love, and it is my one desire to serve as a representative of that compassion and kindness and love and represent what it truly means to have faith in Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ -- the most loving and compassionate and righteous Lord we could ever have -- www.jesus.express. IN JESUS' HOLY, BEAUTIFUL, LOVING AND COMPASSIONATE NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


WE ARE SO BEAUTIFULLY BLESSED HERE IN IOWA

Sometimes I forget just how blessed we are here in Iowa -- we really have been provided with everything that we need, especially compared to other countries in this world. I was sad this morning because I still don't have some of my family in my life right now and I missed them on my birthday, but then God and Jesus cheered me up with some of my favorite music -- such as Beautiful Day by Jamie Grace and King of Glory (Jesus, who will shake the whole world with Holy Thunder). I am also thinking about my Grandad a lot this morning and afternoon since he passed sixteen years ago as of tomorrow. He was just very, very special to our family and I gave the eulogy at his funeral (www.aboutgrandad.com). It doesn't seem like sixteen years because I remember the day like it was yesterday. I know I will see him again in heaven, it just makes me sad because I miss him so much -- he was a very peaceful, kind-hearted man who we loved and still love very much. Whenever I see a John Deere tractor, I think of him because he loved John Deere tractors. It is the little things like that in life that truly matter. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


MY JESUS-GIVEN MINISTRY, WRITING AND TEACHING DREAMS

I STILL HAVE JESUS-GIVEN DREAMS OF STARTING UP THE MINISTRIES -- compassionfortheafflicted.com, www.jesushearts.org and www.amazinggraceministries.org, as well as www.compositionstudies.com (my site on the teaching of writing, which I have done for over twenty years), and writing books about Jesus' great and amazing love and grace for us and a book about the Bible being God's Great Love Story and a book about Love is Sacrifice, relating the sacrifices that people make for their loved ones and even strangers to the sacrifices that God Our Almighty Heavenly Father and Jesus made on the cross. I have already been doing a lot of that writing on my websites www.godlovesyou.co and www.jesuslovesyou.love and www.amazinggrace.io and www.jesus.express and www.god.express, amongst many other sites that I have created in the past year and a half. It brings me great joy and contentment to share the love of Jesus Christ and my (lutheran) faith in Jesus as my Lord, Savior and Best Friend with as many people in the world as possible -- it is a passion of mine, just like the teaching of writing is a passion for me. I have so much more to do with my life and things I would like to share with the world, and I just pray today that Lord Jesus and God Our Heavenly Father allow me the opportunities to go forward with these visions and dreams that They have given me -- after all, They wouldn't have given them to me if They didn't have an intent to see them fulfilled, and I am a hard worker and I am prepared to bring all of these glorious dreams to fruition, with whatever blessings and resources that are provided. I haven't been feeling the best lately, and prayers would continue to be appreciated. Thank you all for being my friends -- I have been very blessed with wonderful friends throughout my life. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


OUR HEARTS SHOULD BREAK LIKE JESUS' HEART BREAKS FOR THOSE PEOPLE SUFFERING FAMINE IN AFRICA

THERE IS A FAMINE RAGING IN SOMALIA, SOUTH SUDAN, NIGERIA AND YEMEN AND IT IS SO SAD AND ALSO SO NOT UNDERSTANDABLE WHY WE HAVE SO MUCH FOOD IN THE UNITED STATES IN OUR GROCERY STORES AND RESTAURANTS AND YET THERE ARE PEOPLE DYING OF STARVATION IN AFRICA -- WHY GOD? WHY GOD?

WE CERTAINLY HAVE THE RESOURCES IN THE US TO HELP PEOPLE STRUGGLING WITH THIS FAMINE AND WE SHOULD CERTAINLY SEND AS MUCH ASSISTANCE AS POSSIBLE SOON.

Diane Olson SCOTT, I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THE US GOVERNMENT AND THE UN ARE NOT CAPABLE OF BYPASSING THEIR GOVERNMENTS GIVEN OUR MILITARY STRENGTH. IF WE SENT OUR PEACEKEEPERS WITH THE FOOD, THERE IS NO REASON THE FOOD SHOULD NOT REACH THOSE WHO NEED IT. YOUR EXPLANATION JUST DOES NOT ADD-UP GIVEN THE RESOURCES AND POWER OF THE UNITED STATES. IF ONLY THE US WOULD CARE ABOUT THOSE NATIONS WHO DO NOT HAVE THE OIL RESOURCES THAT OUR NATION'S LEADERS (LIKE THE BUSHES) COVET AND WOULD USE OUR MILITARY MIGHT TO BRING PEACE TO THOSE IMPOVERISHED, EMBATTLED NATIONS WHO HAVE NOTHING TO OFFER IN RETURN. IT SIMPLY SHOULD NOT BE SO DIFFICULT FOR OUR GOVERNMENT -- THE US GOVERNMENT -- TO USE ITS MIGHT TO BYPASS TERRORIST REGIMES, IF ONLY OUR LEADERS WOULD HAVE COMPASSION UPON THOSE NATIONS SUFFERING FAMINE. LOVE, DIANE

Diane Olson Kevin wrote, "but if the crates tend to sit on a pier someplace because the aid was refused, I think that is more their problem, not ours." JUST BECAUSE A GOVERNMENT DOES NOT HAVE COMPASSION FOR ITS OWN PEOPLE DOES NOT MEAN THAT THE USA AND OTHER NATIONS SHOULD NOT BE DOING SOMETHING TO HELP THE INNOCENT PEOPLE WHO ARE VICTIMS OF THEIR GOVERNMENT'S INDIFFERENCE AND CORRUPTION. WHEN THERE IS A FAMINE HAPPENING IN A COUNTRY -- WHETHER IT IS CAUSED NATURALLY OR BY A CORRUPT GOVERNMENT -- THE USA AND THE UN SHOULD BE CONCERNED ENOUGH TO INTERVENE IN THE SITUATION RATHER THAN PASSIVELY WATCH MILLIONS OF INNOCENT PEOPLE DIE OF STARVATION. I TEND TO BELIEVE THAT IT IS OUR PROBLEM, TOO, AS A HUMANITY THAT SHOULD CARE ABOUT AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER BECAUSE WE COULD HAVE JUST AS EASILY BEEN IN THEIR SITUATION, IF NOT BY THE GRACE AND WILL OF GOD THAT WE WERE BORN IN THE ABUNDANT USA. WE SHOULD CARE AND SHOW COMPASSION REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEIR GOVERNMENT IS DOING AND ESPECIALLY WHEN THEIR GOVERNMENT IS BLOCKING AID TO THE FAMISHED. I DO NOT BELIEVE IN PASSIVELY SAYING THAT "IT IS THEIR PROBLEM." THAT IS NOT CHRISTIAN AT ALL. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE

Diane Olson Scott Buehler YOURS IS NOT AN ACCURATE SCENARIO OF WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN IF THE US ENTERED THEIR COUNTRIES AS PEACEKEEPERS. I DO BELIEVE IN AMERICAN AND UN INTERVENTION IN SUCH SITUATIONS AS FAMINE AND HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES, AND THAT DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY EQUATE WITH AMERICAN'S BLOOD SHED. YET ARE WE NOT THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE BRAVE THAT DEFENDS THE FREEDOMS AND WELFARE OF THOSE SUFFERING IN OTHER COUNTRIES FROM HUMAN RIGHTS' ABUSES AND MALNUTRITION IS A HUMAN RIGHTS' ISSUE.YOURS IS A "WHAT IF" SCENARIO THAT SHOULD NOT DETER THE INTERVENTION OF THE US TO SAVE LIVES -- TO SAVE MANY, MANY MORE INNOCENT LIVES THAN WOULD POTENTIALLY BE LOST. I BELIEVE IN US AND UN INTERVENTION TO SERVE JUSTICE AND SAVE LIVES, AND ALWAYS HAVE. SINCERELY, DIANE

Diane Olson SCOTT, I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT WE CAN LUMP ALL OF THE PEOPLE OF NATION TOGETHER AND SAY THAT THEY DO NOT HOLD LIFE SACRED AS WE DO HERE. I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT WE SHOULD TURN A BLIND EYE TO THE SUFFERING AND HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES OF OTHER COUNTRIES WHEN THERE ARE DEAR CHILDREN OF GOD SUFFERING FROM THOSE ABUSES. THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE TO FIGHT FOR THEMSELVES BECAUSE JESUS COMMANDS THAT WE STAND-UP FOR AND FIGHT FOR THE WEAK ONES OF THIS WORLD. WE WHO ARE SO ABUNDANTLY BLESSED IN THE USA ARE COMMANDED BY OUR FAITH IN THE LORD TO CARE ABOUT AND SHOW COMPASSION TO THOSE PEOPLE WHO DID NOT CHOOSE TO BE BORN IN THOSE NATIONS AND DID NOT CHOOSE TO SUFFER ABUSE AT THE HANDS OF THEIR GOVERNMENTS. WHO ARE YOU TO SAY THAT ALL PEOPLE OF A NATION ARE BAD AND REJECT AMERICAN VALUES WHEN THAT IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE AT ALL -- DID YOU ASK EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THE PEOPLE OR DO YOU SIMPLY ASSUME AND SPEAK FOR THEM INSTEAD OF WITH THEM? AND THERE IS SOCIALISM IN NORWAY AND SWEDEN AND THOSE TWO COUNTRIES ARE GREAT COUNTRIES, SO WHAT YOU SAY ABOUT SOCIALISM IS NOT TRUE AT ALL. SO ON ALL FRONTS, I DISAGREE WITH YOU BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT OUR FAITH IN LORD JESUS COMMANDS THAT WE DO SOMETHING ABOUT INJUSTICES IN THIS WORLD AND THAT WE WHO ARE SO BLESSED MUST SHARE OUR BLESSINGS AND FIGHT FOR THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF OTHER PEOPLE WHO ARE SUFFERING AND HAVE NOT BEEN BLESSED. THIS IS STILL A QUESTION TO GOD (NOT TO FELLOW HUMANS) ABOUT WHY THE INNOCENT IN THESE COUNTRIES MUST SUFFER SO MUCH AND WHY THE USA DOES NOT USE ITS GOD-GIVEN POWER AND BLESSINGS TO SERVE THESE PEOPLE BECAUSE CERTAINLY THEIR LIVES ARE JUST AS PRECIOUS IN THE EYES OF OUR CREATOR AND CERTAINLY OUR CREATOR WANTS US TO REGARD THEIR LIVES AS PRECIOUS, TOO, AND WORTHY OF PROTECTION AND CARE AND COMPASSION.

THERE HAS BEEN NO JUSTICE IN THE STATE OF IOWA FOR MY FAMILY

THIS PUBLIC MESSAGE IS FOR WHOMEVER THOUGHT IT WAS THEIR BUSINESS TO CALL MY MOM IN REGARDS TO THE POST THAT I MADE YESTERDAY ABOUT THERE BEING NO JUSTICE FOR MY FAMILY (AND MOST ESPECIALLY MY DEAR MOM) IN THE STATE OF IOWA. WHOEVER DID THIS -- AND YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE -- LACKS THE COURAGE TO RESPOND DIRECTLY IN THE PUBLIC ARENA TO WHAT I WROTE ABOUT THE SERIOUS ELDER ABUSE OF MY GRANDMA AND THE DECIMATING OF MY GRANDDAD'S ESTATE PLANS BY MY UNCLE AND THE SWANSON LAW FIRM IN RED OAK, IOWA. I WOULD ADVISE ANYONE WHO HAS ETHICS AND MORALS THAT YOU SHOULD NEVER DO ANY BUSINESS WITH THE SWANSON LAW FIRM BECAUSE THEY DEFRAUDED MY FAMILY AND ESPECIALLY MY MOM AND HER SISTER (WHO ARE VERY ETHICAL, MORAL PEOPLE THEMSELVES) OUT OF THEIR INHERITANCE/RETIREMENT MONEY THAT MY GRANDAD DESIGNATED FOR THEM. THE PERSON WHO CALLED MY MOM, TRYING TO STIR UP TROUBLE, IS A COWARD BECAUSE YOU REFUSE TO POST PUBLICALLY ABOUT AN ISSUE THAT IS VERY PUBLIC BASED UPON OUR -- ME AND MY MOM'S AND COUNSINS' -- WEBSITES. WE ARE A FAMILY WHO STANDS UNITED AGAINST THE FRAUD PERPETRATED BY MY UNCLE AND THE SWANSON LAW FIRM AND TRANSIENT OUTSIDERS AGAINST MY GRANDMA AND MY GRANDAD'S ESTATE, AND THAT FRAUD WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN UNTIL JUSTICE IS SERVED AND JUSTICE WILL BE AND IS BEING SERVED, IN JESUS' MIGHTY NAME. THE SWANSON LAW FIRM MESSED WITH THE WRONG FAMILY AND SERIOUSLY ABUSED MY GRANDMA AND DEFRAUDED MY GRANDADS' ESTATE, AND OUR FAMILY REMAINS VERY ANGRY ABOUT THAT ABUSE AND FRAUD. IT WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN AND THINGS WILL BE MADE RIGHT AGAIN. BY THE WILL OF GOD ALMIGHTY, THEY WILL BE MADE RIGHT, AND OUR SPEAKING OUT ON THESE ISSUES WILL NOT STOP UNTIL THEY ARE MADE RIGHT. SERIOUSLY AND SINCERELY, DIANE K. OLSON


THERE HAS BEEN NO JUSTICE IN THE STATE OF IOWA FOR MY FAMILY

I am having a very sad day. I have taught at three major universities in writing, cultural studies and composition studies, and I have a blog at www.compositionstudies.com that is all about my teaching. However, my family -- most especially my mom and my brother -- will not respect and honor all of the very hard work that I have done in my teaching and will not help me get back to my teaching by providing the financial resources that I need to get a car and travel for interviews. This should not be happening to me because I sacrificed my career to help my family with the problems with my grandparents' estate that were caused by my uncle and transient outsiders and a law firm in Red Oak, Iowa that destroyed my grandfather's estate and my mom's inheritance. It was so unfair and unjust and just totally wrong and I was the person who stood-up for my family and my mom and my grandma and my granddad's legacy when it happened. I fought for my family and I told the truth, but now, I am the person who has been totally let down by my family and my brother and my mom -- it is so wrong and so unjust what is happening. I still have my ministerial writing that I have done over the past several years, but I just want to get back to my teaching and I don't have the finances to do that. I gave up and sacrificed my career to help my family with what was unjustly done to my mom's inheritance and my granddad's estate and my grandma's well-being as a dependent adult who suffered severe elder abuse at the hands of my uncle and the law firm. THERE HAS BEEN NO JUSTICE FOR MY FAMILY IN THE STATE OF IOWA, AND I WOULD RATHER BE IN A DIFFERENT STATE IF I HAD THE FINANCES TO MOVE. I HAVE DREAMS OF STARTING UP MINISTRIES BUT I HAVE HAD NO SUPPORT IN BUILDING THOSE MINISTRIES. EVEN THOUGH I AM VERY GIFTED AT WHAT I DO, THERE HAS BEEN NO SUPPORT FOR MY TEACHING AND NO SUPPORT FOR THE MINISTRIES THAT I WOULD LOVE TO CREATE TO HELP AND TEACH OTHER PEOPLE ABOUT LORD JESUS AND OUR HEAVENLY FATHER. SO, I AM JUST SAD TODAY BECAUSE I FEEL SO LET DOWN BY THE WORLD AND THE PEOPLE IN MY LIFE. PLEASE UNDERSTAND. I HAD A WONDERFUL GRANDDAD WHO ALWAYS SUPPORTED ME, AND HE WOULD BE VERY, VERY UPSET AT THE WAY PEOPLE ARE TREATING ME RIGHT NOW IF HE WAS STILL ALIVE. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE

JESUS WANTS US TO CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER AND HAVE COMPASSION FOR ONE ANOTHER, NOT "HELP OURSELVES"

I WAS THINKING THIS AFTERNOON HOW INSTEAD OF "SELF-HELP" BOOKS WE NEED "OTHER-HELP" BOOKS THAT TEACH US ABOUT HELPING OTHER PEOPLE IN THEIR TIMES OF NEED AND SUFFERING. "SELF-HELP" BOOKS ARE BASED ON AMERICAN INDIVIDUALISM AND THE "PULL YOURSELF UP BY THE BOOTSTRAPS" MENTALITY THAT IS NOT OFTEN A REALITY NOR POSSIBILITY FOR MANY PEOPLE WITHOUT THE RESOURCES TO HELP THEMSELVES -- AND NOT FOLLOWING JESUS' COMMANDMENT THAT WE CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER. "OTHER-HELP" BOOKS WOULD TEACH US/PEOPLE TO MINISTER TO AND SUPPORT EACH OTHER IN OUR TIMES OF NEED. THE ONLY THING THAT SELF-HELP BOOKS HELP ARE THE POCKETBOOKS OF THEIR AUTHORS BECAUSE WE DON'T NEED SELF-HELP BOOKS IN A CULTURE WHERE PEOPLE CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER AND TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER WHEN WE ARE SUFFERING AND HURTING. SIMPLY PUT, "SELF-HELP" BOOKS ARE THE ANTITHESIS OF WHAT JESUS IS ALL ABOUT AND HIS CARE AND CONCERN FOR ALL OF US AND HIS COMPASSIONATE AND LOVING WILL THAT WE CARE FOR AND SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER IN OUR TIMES OF NEED. IN JESUS' BEAUTIFUL, LOVING AND HOLY NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


BRINGING RELIEF, JUSTICE AND PEACE TO THE FORGOTTEN OF THE WORLD

I CONTINUE TO SPONSOR A LITTLE GIRL IN HAITI AND A LITTLE BOY IN COLUMBIA THROUGH COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL, A CHRISTIAN MINISTRY -- IT IS ONE OF THE MOST MEANINGFUL THINGS THAT I HAVE DONE IN MY LIFE. THERE ARE SO MANY CHILDREN LIVING IN EXTREME POVERTY AND IN REFUGEE SITUATIONS IN THIS WORLD AND WE NEED TO CARE ABOUT THESE CHILDREN AND WORK TO MAKE THINGS BETTER FOR THESE CHILDREN, WHO CANNOT HELP THEIR CIRCUMSTANCES. RECENTLY, I SIGNED-UP FOR TWITTER, WHICH ENABLES ME TO SUBSCRIBE DIRECTLY TO NEWS RELEASES FROM UNICEF AND OTHER WELL-KNOWN NEWS ORGANIZATIONS AND MINISTRIES AND IS A MUCH MORE RELIABLE SOURCE OF INFORMATION THAN FACEBOOK. IT IS SUCH A SHAME WHAT HAPPENED IN THE RECENT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION WITH THE MISINFORMATION ABOUT THE CANDIDATES, PARTICULARLY HILARY CLINTON, THAT WAS BEING SPREAD ON FACEBOOK. THAT SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED, AND WE ARE SEEING THE FALLOUT OF THOSE PROBLEMS WITH TRUMP'S DEFUNDING OF ESSENTIAL PROGRAMS IN OUR NATION. IN MY WORK IN CULTURAL STUDIES, I EDUCATED STUDENTS ABOUT THE POWER OF THE MEDIA IN INFLUENCING CITIZENS' CHOICES, AND THERE IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM IN OUR NATION TODAY WITH THE MEDIA INFLUENCING WHO WE PAY ATTENTION TO -- SUCH AS REALITY TV STARS AND MEDIA MOGULS OVER AND ABOVE THE SUFFERING AND WARS GOING ON IN PLACES SUCH AS SYRIA AND THE REFUGEE CHILDREN WHO ARE IMPACTED BY THOSE WARS. OUR NATION'S PRIORITIES ARE COMPLETELY OUT OF WHACK, AND WE NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO ONLY NEWS ORGANIZATIONS WHO REPORT FROM THE FRONT LINES OF WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE WORLD TODAY AND THE ORGANIZATIONS -- SUCH AS UNICEF AND COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL AND THE UNITED NATIONS-- THAT ARE ON THE FRONT LINES IN TRYING TO BRING RELIEF AND JUSTICE AND PEACE TO REFUGEES AND IMPOVERISHED PEOPLE OF OTHER NATIONS. SINCERELY AND WITH GREAT LOVE, DIANE K. OLSON


THE GOOD AND BEAUTIFUL GOD

From THE GOOD AND BEAUTIFUL GOD, pg. 163

"We minister out of our brokenness. We heal others through our vulnerability because that is where Christ shines most brightly. Then we can offer them the one thing people need most: JESUS. Henri Nouwen writes, 'The question is not: How many people take you seriously. How much are you going to accomplish? Can you show some results?  But: Are you in love with Jesus. In a world of loneliness and despair, there is an enormous need for men and women who know the heart of God; a heart that forgives, cares, reaches out and want to heal.' I shared with Carey the truth that God's power is made perfect not in our perfection but in our weakness."


A BOOK TEACHING ABOUT JESUS' GREAT LOVE AND AMAZING GRACE!!!

I want to write a book that teaches people about having faith in Jesus and His Amazing, Saving Grace on the cross and how faith in Jesus heals us and makes us whole.  I also want to write a book about Jesus' great and abiding and everlasting love for us and how Jesus takes us in His arms when we are hurting, broken-hearted and sad.  Jesus loves us and cares for us more than any person in out life -- yet Jesus also wants us to love and care for one another unconditionally.  It is simply not enough to be a theologian and being a theologian is not a prerequisite for having a relationship with Jesus and knowing and understanding Jesus.  It is through music, prayer and time spent with Jesus that we come you understand and have a relationship with Jesus and we learn how much Jesus loves us and cares for us.  Jesus does not want us to judge one another but rather unconditionally love one another.  Jesus wants for us to be in love with one another and in love with Him, Lord Jesus, because Jesus is in love with us, as our Lord and Savior and Coming King. And it is our faith in Jesus' love for us and Jesus' amazing grace on the cross that our wounds and our brokenness are healed and we are made whole again.  Jesus is our Savior and our Healer at all times. IN JESUS' BEAUTIFUL, GRACIOUS, GLORIOUS, LOVING, HOLY AND COMPASSIONATE NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE 


IF YOU ARE HEART-BROKEN TODAY, TRUST THAT JESUS HAS A PURPOSE AND WILL RESTORE YOUR HEART, JOY AND PEACE

I have been thinking this Sunday about how Lord Jesus takes people/friends/family out of our lives at times in our lives and how He always does this for a purpose, even when it causes great heart-break for us, like it has in my life. In my case, Lord Jesus took some of my family and friends out of my life so that I would grow closer to Jesus and become the minister and advocate that He wants me to be. LORD JESUS lovingly and compassionately takes people out of our lives for a variety of purposes but most especially, when He wants us to grow in our faith in Him and when He wants us to learn that He (JESUS) is the one that we need to lean on and depend upon most in this world. And WHEN HE (JESUS) WANTS US TO TESTIFY TO HIS AMAZING LOVE AND GRACE FOR US TO OTHER PEOPLE WHO ALSO NEED TO GROW IN THEIR FAITH. So, I UNDERSTAND NOW, LORD JESUS, YOUR PURPOSE IN MY PAIN OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS. AND THAT YOU BRING GREAT BEAUTY AND BEAUTIFUL VISIONS FROM OUR PAIN, AS IS ONE OF YOUR PURPOSES, AND I HAVE WRITTEN SOME OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL, COMPASSIONATE MINISTERIAL BLOGS SINCE THIS TRIAL BEGAN, SO THANK YOU SO MUCH, LORD JESUS AND HEAVENLY FATHER, THANK YOU SO MUCH, FOR THESE GIFTS AND BLESSINGS THAT YOU HAVE BESTOWED UPON ME DURING THIS TESTING AND TRIAL. PLEASE, I PRAY, CONTINUE TO GROW ME IN THE FAITH, DISCERNMENT AND COMPASSION AND TO TEACH OTHERS ABOUT THESE THINGS THAT ARE SO IMPORTANT TO YOU, LORD JESUS. IN YOUR BEAUTIFUL AND GLORIOUS AND LOVING NAME, LORD JESUS. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE


I LOVE CHILDREN, IN JESUS' NAME, AND I LOVE MINISTERING TO AND TEACHING CHILDREN ABOUT THE LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST

Today, I have been wondering why God and Lord Jesus haven't given me children yet but then I realize that They have given me a beautiful nephew and beautiful children that I sponsor through Compassion International, and that we all have a purpose in life and perhaps my purpose is to be a passionate representative of Jesus and his amazing love and grace to the world, especially to children, even if they are not my own. I still want to start up an organization called Jesus Hearts (www.jesushearts.org) that teaches children about the love and compassion of Jesus Christ in the gospels because not every child in this country and in the world, has the opportunity to go to Sunday School like I did as a child and like many of you did on my friends' list. So, I would like to start-up an organization that reaches out to those children -- like Compassion International does around the world -- especially in the USA and teaches them that their only role model should be Jesus Christ and that Jesus loves them no matter who they are or where they're from -- that Jesus' love for them is limitless and knows no bounds. I pray again today for the resources and blessings to start-up this ministry soon. Jesus didn't have children of his own either, I must remember, yet he welcomed all of the little children of the world and children were and are very precious to Him, like they are to me. I love to hear stories on Facebook about your children and how they are growing-up into beautiful, loving teenagers and adults. JESUS LOVES THE LITTLE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD, RED AND YELLOW, BLACK AND WHITE, THEY ARE PRECIOUS IN HIS SIGHT, JESUS LOVES THE LITTLE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD. IN JESUS' LOVING AND COMPASSIONATE NAME, I PRAY. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE
