My name is Diana Lesperance. I’m the wife to Greg, and mom to eight kids and five grandkids. I’ve been a Christian since 1981, when my life was wonderfully changed. I have degrees in history, religion, and communications. I also spent 23 years as a homeschool mom.

I believe that God’s Word is faithful and true.  I hope that I can prove it to be the greatest source for good the world has ever known. The purpose of this website is to reveal the beautiful, hidden history of the Bible-believing church. I want to encourage the church to stand and be strong in the Word because it is trustworthy and dependable. It is a rock when all other philosophies and religions are shifting sand.

  1. Dear Ms. Diana,

    Thank you for your wonderful article “Daniel’s Prophecy of the 70 Weeks” (http://narrowwayapologetics.com/2012/05/14/daniels-prophecy-of-the-70-weeks/) which is a very informative article. You have very well explained the calculations of the 173,880 days which is also very useful to me.

    I have a question: I was trying to do the calculation myself and when I tried to calculate using the 365 days per year calendar, you are correct on the 476 years from 14-March-445 BC to 14-March-032 AD. But with 476 years, when divided by 4 (which is 1 leap year every four years) I get 119 leap years and not 116 leap years. 116 leap years will be for 464 years, which is short by 12 years.

    If we add another 3 days, for the 119 leap years (instead of 116), then there will be a total of 173,883 days. Can you help me with this math please?

    Actually I was preparing a study material for our Prayer Cell Group and I am stuck on this now.

    Thank you and God Bless you.

    1. Hi Thomas,
      Honestly, after looking over your comment I have to admit you’re right. It is 119 leap years, rather than 116. That changes the calculations. I’m not sure how to respond to you, but I know there must be a solution because God’s Word is always true. I’m sorry for putting out false information! I will look into it as soon as possible. I may not have an answer before your Prayer Cell Group, though. So sorry, Diana Lesperance

  2. Dear Ms. Diana,

    Thank you for your quick response. After I sent you the mail, I went searching for this over the Internet and in a site by Dr. Chuck Missler, I found out the following statement: “Leap years do not occur in century years unless divisible by 400 therefore, we must add three less leap years in four centuries”.

    Between 445 BC and 32 AD, there are four centuries – 400 BC which is divisible by 400, 300 BC, 200 BC and 100 BC, which are not divisible by 400, so they are not leap years! So the figure 116 is correct.

    Even though I confess that I did not do my home-work properly prior to sending you the query, now I think we had a chance to learn it together and I believe that’s God’s way of doing things.

    Once again, thank you for your great website where a lot of details are given. (May be you should add the comments about the missing leap days in your site as well)

    Thank you and God Bless you.

    1. Thank you, Thomas! Again, God’s Word is faithful and true. It can always be trusted. I will add the comments about the 116 vs. 119 days to my post. What a blessing that Chuck Missler was able to solve the mystery for us. Thank you for your encouraging words….Diana

  3. Dear Ms. Diana,

    Thank you so much for your kind words. If you want to refer to Chuck Missler’s website, please click on: http://xwalk.ca/problem.html

    I have not seen this explanation anywhere else in any other websites. You have done a lot of articles for which definitely God will reward you in the right time. May God bless you to spread His Word around for more people to be enlightened and help them to be led to the Lord.
