About Dianne Dougharty
Dianne is a woman with a heart to reach the young women of today. Her love and involvement with them has brought her to a place of developing a study for college, single, engaged, and young married women. The study, Secrets Savored, is a means of teaching practical helps for keeping a home and Biblical truths that can be applied to the lives of these women.
Dianne and her husband, Mark, have been married for 40 years. God called them out of the secular work force in 1996 and placed them on staff at Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis, Tennessee. They are no longer serving on staff but are very involved in the Young Married and Women’s Ministry areas of the church. Dianne teaches Secret Savored classes each week and disciples young women. She has served in a variety of roles within the Women’s Ministry program. She has written and published the Secrets Savored Curriculum. She and Mark are members of a Young Married Life Group/Sunday School class, serving in a discipling role.
Dianne has shared her story of journeying with God through Mark’s illness and the uncertainty of their future to encourage women to trust God even when life seems hopeless. Mark and Dianne have two daughters. Angela Porada, her husband Mark, and their four children live in Collierville, Tennessee. Kelly Anderson, and her husband Robert, live in McKinney, Texas, along with their three children.
