Hello! Nice to meet you!
I’m Tara, Minivan Mom–lover of Jesus, happy wife, mom to three, adoption advocate, homeschooler, former public school teacher, and also a former nursery and preschool ministry director. I recently read that only 10 percent of Christian parents are doing any kind of Bible teaching with their children at home. How sad! So now I’m here to combine my passions and experiences and help YOU help your KIDS fall in love with Jesus. There’s nothing better! Plus these ideas are easy to implement and have great impact. And God can use anybody, so why NOT me?!
But it’s not all mooshy gooshy feel good Bible crafts (though some of it is!). THIS IS SERIOUS BUSINESS. We live in a rapidly changing world, and not for the better. We’ve only got approximately 18 years–18 summers, 18 winters, 18 springs, and 18 falls to really make an impression. If your kids are growing like mine, many of those opportunities are already gone. If we don’t leave a lasting impression on our kids, the world WILL.
Let me introduce you to my inspiration…
This is me with my husband John, Minivan Dad…the one who helps me realize my dreams, the man who figures out the logistics to make it all happen, the one I want to grow old(er) with!
Our sweet boy, Will. Brave and all boy. Aspiring spy. Avid reader. The one who has dreamed of getting rich and planting churches all over the world ever since he could talk.
Our spunky girl, Gemma. Beautiful and passionate. My artist in residence. Future Food Network star. Writer of praise songs.
Our happy girl, Aaralyn. A dancer and musician to her very core. Determination is her middle name. A prayer warrior at the ripe old age of two.
A few fun facts about me before you go…
- I’m an aspiring ukulele player.
- I have always wanted to take fencing lessons.
- I love songs with a little bit of attitude.
- I don’t do super hot weather well. I prefer to go to the beach in the fall!
- My sweet tooth is a vicious beast!
So now that you know a bit about me, let’s do this thing!
