September 2015 Event Recap – Diane Hoeft
“Redefining After the Interruption”
The Tacoma KIROS gathering was privileged to have Diane Hoeft share her authentic and personal story of the life lessons God is teaching her through His interruption. When God interrupted Diane’s life, it was not just in her career but in her soul, as God is redefining her heart and her world.
Diane Hoeft serves as the Chair of KIROS and is co-leading the Seattle event for the Global Code for the Kingdom #C4TK. Her career in digital media and consumer social platforms has taken her into roles in Europe and US. Diane helped to build and operate digital media partnerships for Microsoft in both the US and UK markets. While in London, she built the EMEA sales and operations unit for the digital advertising business of the Dow Jones consumer media division. Diane is a co-founder of Shopvolution, the developer of social shopping app Shopcade. She earned a Bachelors of Communications from University of California, Los Angeles and an MBA from London Business School.
Diane is an extremely talented young lady with a heart of gold and the God-given gift of gratitude. Through some very difficult times, Diane heard the voice of God; for it is in the struggles of life that we hear God shout. The four lessons that have shaped Diane and drawn her close to intimacy with Jesus are:
1. Insight into Spiritual Gifts- Going through difficult times brought out spiritual gifts and insight she never knew she had.
2. Sozo– Greek word meaning “Salvation and healing”. It was in her deepest need that she had access to God.
3. Rhema- The Greek word for the spoken word of God. Diane truly experienced Rhema, the spoken word of God that Paul talks about in Ephesians 6:17, when he outlines the Armor of God.
4. Beautiful Pain– What is coming out of this situation, this too is beautiful pain. Matthew 5:3-4
The lessons learned in the “Interruption” are “Redefining” how she moves forward, going slower and giving space to hear God’s voice (Psalm 39:6). Diane is moving forward without fear, stronger than she ever knew herself to be, because Jesus has already carried her through the next “Interruption.”
