Hi! I’m Tara your host for the evening…kidding. I have a list of things to tell you about me , but you should first know that I am a wife and mother and completely normal. Well, as normal as normal can be.
I fight every day to show mercy, give grace and forgive those who brought me hurt. I pray hard for God to give me eyes and ears to recognize the path He has set for me. I fail every day, but I also win every day.
With that said, here is that list I have to share with you: I have a bachelor’s degree from Crown College that I fought hard for many years to complete. When I ran out of excuses of why I was not the person for the job, I founded Titus II Woman (you can read about that down below). While working full time to support my family while my husband completed his Master’s Degree, I was presented with an opportunity and in 2017 became the co-author of Journey In Faith. I write for the Titus II Woman blog as well as guest write for many other resources. I am now a certified Breakthrough Life Coach with Life Breakthrough Academy. I like to bless others with essential oil knowledge and through aroma-touch technique. I work full time outside of my home, run a ministry for women, write, read and lead. Basically I am an octopus woman juggling life like every other wife, mom, friend…woman. Welcome to my beautiful, crazy life.
Titus II Woman Story
We began in September of 2014. Titus II Woman started out with a one woman dream and no knowledge of how to start a ministry for women. God laid it on my heart to start a ministry and so I prayed and sought council of trusted friends and family. I thought of how a women’s ministry could have the greatest impact on women today. Women have busy lives with not a lot of leftover time. DING! The light bulb turned on. A blog! Titus II started with a small blog on a free site. I thought, at first, that it would be a blog of one to two articles a month, but felt God leading me to contact women who had made a difference in my life. Some were friend or acquaintances who came to mind to see if they would be willing to be part of the ministry for fellow women. I sent out an email that I drafted to about fifty women, not expecting to hear from many of them. Within 24 hours there were 25 women committing to writing anywhere between four times a year and once a month. The blog started out with 27 writers which allowed Titus II Woman to put out articles two to three times a week. Within the first three years the blog had grown to four or more articles a week and eventually offered something for women six days a week. Titus II has their own Facebook page, Pinterest page, Twitter page, and Instagram. Titus II had not only a significant amount of writers, but we served women through speaking events, live online Bible studies and weekly videos.
At the end of 2018 our family went through a very hard time. Our oldest made decisions that were devastated our family and all that we knew. There was a lot of hurt involved on many levels and I needed to time to search God and healing. It took me a really long time to really be to a place where I could openly discuss what I walked through and wrestled with, what I still wrestle with. All of 2019 was spend on rest and restoration. Though life will never look or feel as it did, God has given me direction on how I can better help women who are or will walk this same path and need healing. Titus II has seen new direction for 2020. There will be guest appearance writing throughout the year, but you will be hearing a lot more from me through writing, videos, teaching and new curriculum coming out within the year.
My mission is to help as many women discover a real connection with God that deeply rooted in His Word and find their God-given purpose while they walk this earth. Becoming a certified Life Coach was just another step in this journey and I pray that I can help whoever God puts in my path.
