For a non-engineer to understand FBD, he must understand the meaning of force which can be defined as tendency of an object to be pushed or get pulled. After the layman understands force, take an example say a mass kept on table. FBD of that mass shows all the forces on that mass after isolating it from the table and that's why there is a term 'free' in the name.
