First Lady Diana Battiste Williams

First Lady Diana Battiste Williams is the seventh child born to the late Wilson and Mortena Battiste of Amite, Louisiana.  Diana is the seventh oldest of eleven girls, she and her sisters share a special bond where they are very close to each other.  Lady Williams attended elementary school at Westside Elementary and High School at Amite High School.  She was recognized as one of the top ten in her graduating class.  After graduating, she attended Southeastern University in Hammond, Louisiana.  Her Studies consisted of Early Childhood and Special Education, Child Psychology, and Criminal Law. 

In 1972 Lady Williams married her childhood sweetheart, friend and now Pastor of Liberty Hill Missionary Baptist Church, the Rev. Dr. Amos Williams Jr.  To this union the Lord blessed them with two children, Ashley Fleurine and Amos Williams III (Trey).  They also have one biological granddaughter (Belle Leilani Fleurine) and two adopted grandchildren (Jamya and Nazaire). They left their home in Louisiana and traveled to Florida and then to Georgia, where they now reside.

First Lady Williams gave her life to Christ at an early age.  She has always been close to the church in part with the aid of her beloved mother.  As a teen and young adult, she was very active in the church, traveling to conventions, working with the mission ministry, the kitchen ministry, bible school, singing, and working with small groups.  After her family moved to Marietta, Georgia they attended Pleasant Grove Missionary Baptist Church, under the leadership of Pastor B J Lockhart.  “My time at the ‘Grove’ allowed me the opportunity to truly establish a relationship with the Lord, also to find peace in my call to a ministry of service to study the word of God with clarity and convection".

First Lady Williams is not ashamed to tell anyone of her love for the Lord, also about His goodness to her and her family.  One of her lasting desires has been to minister to women by equipping them with the applied word of God.  She has attended classes with her husband at Beulah Bible College, New Orleans Theological Seminary, and has also attended Community Bible Studies.  She is an advent Christian book reader and enjoys sharing what she has learned through the aid of the Holy Spirit.   She and her husband are very active in a community-based adult Bible Study group and are both advent supporters of Young Life Ministries. 

First Lady Williams retired from Cobb County Government where she worked as an Administrative Specialist III in the Purchasing Department.  Over the years she has given twenty-two years of service and dedication to working with children and adults with special needs.  In addition, adults with mental health problems.

Her greatest job is providing support and sharing her life with her husband and children.  But, her first love is the Lord God; she has no problem openly thanking Him for His many blessings and His faithfulness to her and her family.  She enjoys serving the Lord in any capacity He equips her to serve in. She shares her husband’s sentiment when he says “What better way to live out the days of your life, than spending it sharing the love of the Lord with everyone who will hear”
