Diane and Greg Hemsoth were married June 26, 1976. They have two beautiful children: Jessica (Vamsi) Rao, Jenifer (Dewey) Lee. Greg and Diane adopted their twin daughters when they were four months old from South Korea. They are impatiently waiting for God to bless them with grandchildren.

Diane truly believes in following the Lord’s guidance as she shares, “The Lord gave me a personal command to do something for Him. The day before I was to graduate from The School of Spiritual Direction I was walking by one of the chapels and I smelled incense. I went in to investigate and strongly felt God’s presence. As I prostrated before the tabernacle I heard these words in my head and my heart, “My children do not know of My love, My children do not know of My love, My children do not know of My love. Tell My children of My love, Tell My children of My love, Tell My children of My love.”

This was in the year 2000 and since this event with the Lord it has been so in my heart to help others know how much God truly loves them and how He wants a deeper, intimate relationship with his children. This is what Marian Servants do through our prayer ministry, Spiritual Direction, and Ignatian Spirituality.”
