Diane Dokko Kim

DianeKimAs mother to a child with autism and ADHD, Diane’s passion is to empower struggling parents to experience the timeless relevance of God’s Word in the gritty realities of special needs family life, and to view their journey as a unique opportunity for spiritual transformation and discipleship.

Her two-fold mission includes equipping churches to become fully inclusive faith communities. Since 2008, she has developed special needs ministries at several local churches, led parent support groups, and spoken at churches and conferences as a Special Needs Ministry Consultant. She is honored to partner with the ministries of Joni and Friends as an advisory board member, speaker/trainer, and ministry ambassador.

Diane blogs on faith, family and special needs at http://www.dianedokkokim.com  Her writing has been featured in Orange’s Parent CueParenting.com, Bay Area Parent, and SpecialNeedsParenting.net. Her devotional, Faith Rehab: Spiritual Recovery for the Special Needs Parent, will be her debut title with Kirkland Media Management.

Whether by diagnosis, a death –or the death of a dream– everyone gets “crippled” by something. No one escapes the jagged edges of a broken planet, unscathed. All believers struggle to reconcile faith with disappointment. Sin and brokenness may steal, kill and destroy, indiscriminately. But Jesus is an equal opportunity Healer and Redeemer.

Diane lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, with her husband, Eddie, and their two sons. Connect with her at https://www.facebook.com/DianeDokkoKim.
