Writing for me is like drawing maps by hand in the days before GPS, or computers, television, or even cameras. There's a need to painstakingly show "this is where I've been, and this is how I got to the other side of the world.

Background Information

As a former atheist raised by a Jewish father and a Jamaican-American mother who brought her up in the Episcopal Church, Minister Diane L. Harris has a unique testimony. She shares that story in her just-published guidebook for new Christians entitled Stepping into the Light: You’re a Christian, what now?

From the age of 14 until the age of 44, Minister Harris shut out the call of Jesus until she finally could do nothing but surrender. Less than one year later, she received and acknowledged her call to the ministry. Over the last five years, Minister Harris has led Children’s Church, taught and supervised Adult Sunday School, and presented her testimony at churches in Tennessee, Virginia, and New York. Currently she ministers at Koinonia Faith Church in Richmond, Virginia, led by her husband, Pastor Benjamin W. Harris, Jr.

Exhibiting a disarming sense of humor and a compassionate heart, Minister Diane L. Harris eagerly relates what God has done for her personally. But Stepping into the Light: You’re a Christian, what now? is equally about finding answers in God’s word to the myriad of questions to which new believers (and even not-so-new believers) need answers.

“At my baptism,” says Minister Harris, “as soon as I stepped out of the water, all I could think was ‘what now?’ That’s where the title of my book originated. “I sensed that salvation and baptism could not be the end of my search for meaning in life, but only the beginning. The book is about answering that question, ‘what now?’”

Stepping into the Light: You're a Christian, what now?
My hope for is not only to promote my new book, but to create a place where people of faith can come together and share questions, perceptions, and a thirst for understanding and relating to our Creator without any fear. Fearlessness in hope, disagreement, joy, and a creative outlet for expressing faith - these are my lofty hopes for this place in cyberspace. With love and gratitude, Diane L. Harris
A former atheist who grew up in the Episcopal Church while her brothers were raised as Jews, Diane L. Harris had a born-again experience at the age of 44 and heard God calling her to ministry a few months later. Minister Harris shares her story with clarity and humor in this thoughtfully planned guidebook aimed at new adult Christians but useful to any soul focused on spiritual expansion.
I have just released my first book, "Stepping into the Light: You're a Christian, what now?" I've also set up a blog at to discuss issues of faith and discipleship and to encourage new Christians to ask questions and study. My next book, which is just in the outline stage, will be called "Don't Fight Heaven." My purposes in life are to write and to teach.
