Tara is the president of Titus II Woman Ministry, a ministry designed to encourage women right where they are through the Word of God and personal relationship. She is a graduate of Crown College and the author of A Journey in Faith; Embracing the Unknown.


Tara enjoys speaking at multiple women's events every year as well as small gatherings to encourage women across the globe. Her topics may include, but are not limited to: forgiveness, motherhood, mothering teenage daughters, marriage, Christian military family life, surviving a spouses PTSD, and many Bible topics.  She is the mother to four children from teen to tween and all boy and has been married to her husband, David, for seventeen years. With her family, Tara lives in Brandon, South Dakota.

Tara's goals as an author/speaker can be summed up by a simple phrase - glorify God with the words that she speaks. In that, Tara wants to encourage women no matter where they are in their walk with Christ. "We all live a “normal” life and sometimes one kind gesture makes the difference between life and death. I aim to be a woman of encouragement to others." 

"God doesn't ask for perfection just our persistence."
