Worship leader, songwriter, and author from San Diego, CA, Diane Luna has a genuine passion to worship God. Diane led the worship arts ministry at her home church for many years while her husband, John, was senior pastor, while spending time leading worship for women’s retreats, churches, and ministries. Her latest album EVERYTHING IS GOOD is a stirring collection of electronic and acoustic modern worship songs. When not playing fetch with Lily the goldendoodle, or rollerskating with her kiddos, Diane is most likely found sipping lattes over conversation at a local coffee shop.
Being raised in a Christian home, Diane was exposed to worship music from an early age. “When I was young we attended a church called Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa, CA. My parents were so excited about church and passionate about the bible. My dad, besides having an amazing knack for bluesy piano, did a lot of graphic design, including magazines with author Gayle Erwin, a few album covers for Christian artists, and a backdrop for an early Billy Graham crusade in Germany. We always had somebody over at our house plunking away at the piano working on songs, reading the bible, or chatting with dad about all things creative. It was a great way to grow up!” The family later moved to the country, but the creative seeds were planted as well as an early-rooted deep faith in God.
“I can remember committing my heart to Christ at an early age but as I grew up I chased endless temptations: peer pressure, parties, money, career… all of which left my heart in an unquenchable death. I can vividly recall my ‘aha’ moment when I saw how fruitless the things were that I was doing. In that moment I realized how hugely wonderful God is… His love encompassing anything I could try to do to escape Him. Everything I learned growing up clicked in my brain. Only GOD can satisfy hearts (and save souls) by His forgiveness of sin through the death and resurrection of His son Jesus Christ. That very instant I packed up my life, ran straight into the bible and back to church. And now, standing next to my handsome hubby, John, with two crazy kids and a guitar in tow… I’ll tell as many people about God’s limitless love as are willing to listen. And I might play a song or two while I’m at it!”
