Linda has struggled with adversity, met with success, and overcome the obstacles in both extremes learning the secrets of God-made success that she now teaches as an author, speaker and coach empowering anyone who wants to fulfill their calling in life.

The author of Find Your Why Forward, and IMPACT Your Sphere of Influence, Linda delivers life-changing insight and practical nuts and bolts application with inspiring stories that make results stick while reaching the heart.

– Diane Bickle



Diane joyfully partners with the Lord in ministry and business. To Diane there is no divide between the sacred/secular. All is permeated with the presence of Jesus. Diane is married to her best friend, Mike, for 40 years; she’s a mother and a grandmother to 5 beautiful grandchildren. She is a conference speaker and the founder and CEO of Glad Heart Realty.

She is deeply involved in the International House of Prayer in Kansas City where she leads prayer meetings, serves in the healing rooms, participates in evangelistic outreaches, along with serving 7M-Pact to equip people for market place ministry. As a teacher and intercessor she partners with God to see His Kingdom come forth in individual lives as well as corporate spheres of business and society.

Diane started Glad Heart Realty in June of 2001. As a pastor’s wife of 30+ years, her joy has always been in helping people connect to what’s important to them. Helping people find the right neighborhood and home was just a natural outflow of her passion.

Diane has been married to Mike, her best friend for 37 years. “Through the years our love, friendship and partnership has grown as well as our mutual respect for one another. We like each other a lot and have fun together.” Mike is the founder of the International House of Prayer (IHOPKC). The couple has two married sons, two beautiful daughter-in-laws, and four stunning grandchildren who have “stolen Diane’s heart.”

She returns to Women Abide with a special message for women to live their passion wherever the Lord places them, including the marketplace!
