The team at Empowering Everyday Women Ministries is grateful for Minister Wynetta Hall-McElveen and
Lady Bertha Brinson for their assistance in rallying the saints to pray as our leader has been attacked in her
body with illnesses doctors say are incurable.
And yet, we believe God.
Evangelist Dianna Hobbs has hit a rough patch in her health. After receiving a grim Glaucoma diagnosis in
2016, with ophthalmologists saying she would be blind within five years, she is facing a new challenge.
The award-winning Christian media specialist has been diagnosed with two conditions specialists say are
incurable— an autoimmune disease called Rheumatoid Arthritis and a chronic rheumatic condition known as
Unlike the most common form of arthritis that comes from wear and tear on the body, as well as age,
Rheumatoid Arthritis causes white blood cells to mistake healthy cells for foreign invaders like bacteria and
viruses. Essentially, the body attacks itself, leading to destructive results.
Hobbs, 40, also tested positive for a high level of “The Rheumatoid Factor,” a bad protein in her blood,
making the Christian media specialist’s disease more aggressive.
While the disease impacts everyone differently, in Hobbs’ case, her weakened condition has been
compounded by inflammation, intense bouts of cardiac trouble, respiratory issues, bowel complications, and
dangerously high blood pressure spikes.
Specialists are currently working to resolve these issues. But we know the Chief Specialist, whose name is
Jesus Christ, has all power and authority in His hands to heal.
On top of the Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hobbs’ Fibromyalgia causes widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue,
sleep, memory and mood issues. The combination of the individually painful diseases has taken an even
greater toll on her body.
“We thank God for the dedicated team of doctors and nurses, and their expertise, and treatments,” said
Hobbs in a statement sent through her publicist, Amy Bertinelli. “Yet, we ultimately trust in God’s sovereignty
and we believe the report of the Lord. And His report says ‘By His stripes, I am healed.’”
“It has been hard seeing Dianna go through something so tough,” said Mr. Kenya Hobbs, who has spent
multiple days and nights at his wife’s bedside, both at home and in the hospital. He has acted as Hobbs’
primary caregiver during this ongoing series of medical emergencies, causing flare-ups of difficult-to-manage
Mr. Hobbs, a community organizer and ordained minister, who wed the Empowering Everyday Women
Ministries, Inc. Founder in 1998, is the father of the couple’s four children. Though Mr. Hobbs admits the
situation has been difficult, there is something that has helped a lot: The genuine love and concern coming
from family, friends, colleagues and the global faith community of ministry supporters.
“The prayers, visits, calls, texts, thoughtful emails, cards and gifts have meant the world to our family. Thank
you so much. And please keep the prayers coming our way,” he said. If you feel led to give today, you are

Months ago, doctors suspected cancer was the cause of the best-selling author and abstinence advocate’s
pain, leaving her severely bruised all over her body, unable to walk and barely able to eat.
However, after extensive testing and procedures, back-to-back Emergency Room visits, hospitalizations and
specialist consultations, the real answers finally emerged.
“Her medical team did find a tumor,” explained Mr. Hobbs. “But by the grace of God, surgeons removed it and
came back with a pathology report saying no cancer. It took a long time for specialists to uncover the actual
issue and we are thankful to really know what’s going on.”
Hobbs, a Top 100 blogger, named one of the “70 Most Influential African-American Christian History Makers”
by Black Christian News Network, is facing an uphill battle. Nevertheless, though weak and afflicted in body,
she remains strong in faith and full of hope.
“We don’t know when God is going to complete the work of healing in my body, but the same faith I share with
others on my good days, I cling to on my worst days, even sometimes with tears streaming down my face and
the inability to get up out of bed,” said Hobbs.
Since last September, until very recently, the well-loved inspirational writer, teacher and encourager of
women has been absent from social media, where she typically posts multiple daily inspirations to encourage
her thousands of followers. Hobbs’ administrative staff also canceled all engagements, as her top-rated
podcast and popular “Daily Cup of Inspiration” blog remains dormant.
“Dianna isn’t yet strong or well enough to resume her hectic schedule and ministry obligations,” said Bertinelli.
“But I can tell you that she believes the message of hope in Jesus Christ she shares around the world and is
anticipating that her own test will become a testimony in due time,” the publicist stated.
Despite all she's been through and what medical professionals have said, faith-filled saints, both women and
men from everywhere, are gathering Sunday, March 26, 2017 for “50 Women Praying: An Evening of
Jubilee!” in expectation of a miraculous turnaround in her health.
We declare that we will not be defeated and we will not bow down to sickness or any other attack of the
enemy. That's why we are inviting as many as will come to war with us in the spirit, and believe God to raise
Evangelist Hobbs up. We know He can do a mighty work and not just make her stronger, but heal her
completely of these ailments.
We are standing in faith that the Lord will defy doctors and specialists, and show off His healing power in
Evangelist Hobbs' life. Won't you join us? Here's how.
