About-

When Reverend Mosby’s son went to war, she, like so many other mothers, prayed for his safe return. Her prayers were answered. He came home, alive and whole. Or, so she thought.



The War Stole My Soul with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): What Now? is the result of a mother’s mission to restore her son’s faith in God and encourage his desire to live. In her quest to save her son from his despair, Reverend Mosby came to understand the debilitating effects of PTSD on the souls of veterans. She found there were no government resources to heal their broken spirits. Few church communities had either the knowledge of PTSD and its symptoms or the means to support its victims.



Reverend Mosby set out to educate those who could help those who suffer. She created a training program to raise awareness of PTSD among church leaders. Encouraged by the program’s success, Reverend Mosby began speaking to church groups, veterans’ organizations, corporations, and at conferences. And, now, through this book, she is expanding her reach so that no veterans and their caregivers will ever have to say: The War Stole My Soul with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): What Now?

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Diane Mosby has provided a comprehensive approach to the twenty-first century mandate of pastoral ministry. The War Stole My Soul with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): What Now? depicts the mission of the church through the eyes of a compassionate pastor.  Life's challenges, met by faith and actions will give today's pastor a roadmap for what comes next in overcoming PTSD in our congregations and communities.”

—Norwood G. Carson, Pastor, Friendship Baptist Church, Hopewell, Virginia



“Using her personal experience as the mother of one affected by PTSD and her gifts as a caring pastor, Diane Mosby has gifted us with a valuable resource for serving those suffering with war-related PTSD. As she sensitizes and equips pastors to provide the knowledge, awareness, and resources for meeting the needs of persons suffering from all types of PTSD, many persons will be restored to the body of Christ. For this, we are eternally grateful.”

— Patricia Gould-Champ, Assistant Professor of Practical Theology, Samuel DeWitt Proctor School of Theology, Virginia Union University



“Diane Mosby’s work is a much needed call to action. She challenges the church and its leaders to see the post-traumatic stress disorder of our military veterans, in particular, as a crisis of the soul. Mosby’s testimony and research remind each reader that this crisis resides in our communities and, sometimes, in our homes. Her willingness to raise the church’s awareness and to equip its leaders with accessible soul care practices is commendable and timely.”

—Adam L. Bond, Associate Professor of Church History, Proctor School of Theology, Virginia Union University
