Since October of 2016, directed by the Lord, she founded a prayer group called “Jewels, Ladies of Prayer” that holds quarterly “Sister Talks,” which helps them take off metaphorical masks and encourage one another in the Lord.
Tara is passionate and it shows.
Tara has lived a checkered past before answering the call from Jesus Christ. She has survived molestation, and rape. She has been a dancer, former escort, and madam. She is a former Jehovah’s Witness and lived her life as a bisexual woman. She knows God to be her Deliverer and Healer! She is open about her past to show that God can turn your ashes into beauty. She is open to show that God is real and you are not too messed up for Him.
Tara understands people and the daily struggles they face. She is practical and loving. She embraces people. She believes in judgements in matters of biblical doctrine and righteous living. The bible is her compass. She believes in hating what is evil and clinging to what is good as it states in Romans 12:9.
She has endured an extreme amount of pain in her life. God changed her negative life into something beautiful for Him. During her fight with breast cancer, she gained a closer relationship to God, which begat a journey of reveals and revelations.
She has always enjoyed writing, but the Lord was calling Tara to write her testimony and share it to help others. She not only wrote her testimony in the form of a memoir, Everybody Kneeling ain’t Praying, she has written other books with more to come.
In 2017, after her double mastectomy, the Lord led Tara to create a space for Him in her home. She made a prayer room, anointed it, and set it apart for Him. He met her there. She would also bring others in there to pray and be delivered. God started something amazing during a time of wilderness. On the outside, it seemed she should be in a corner, crying and desolate with the circumstances, yet Tara stayed prayerful, full of praise and joy.
A testament to the power of God.
She transitioned from a full-time hairstylist, to a stay at home mom and writer during her recovery time. The Lord was telling her to rest in Him and write. Being independent and headstrong, Tara would find it difficult to accommodate what seemed like a simple request; however, it was beneficial for her to acquiesce. She had to let go of what was familiar-of what she trusted in, and at times, “hid” in.
She had to walk by faith and not sight.
Trust God on your journey,” is what she is fond of saying.
