A graduate of Furman University with a degree in political science, Tara later pursued a Master’s in Biblical counseling from Birmingham Theological Seminary while she was the Director of the Singles Ministry for Women at Briarwood Church. In 1998, Tara began dating her husband-to-be, Lee Reeves. Tara believes the two greatest decisions in her life were declaring “I do” when asked whether she wanted to invite Jesus Christ into her heart and announcing “I do” at her South Carolina wedding twenty-three years later.
Today, Tara lives in North Carolina where she teaches a weekly Bible study for women and is the doting mother to teenage twins, Caroline and Daniel, and to “bonus baby,” Harrison. She counts it a joy and privilege to daily point her children to the Lord.
Tara’s book, Don’t Tell That to Beasley, was released by WaterBrook Press in 2005. Her recent collaboration with Amanda Jenkins and B&H Kids has produced The Knight and the Firefly and The Pirate and the Firefly. August 1, 2016 Tara’s devotional for families, Point Me to Jesus, hit bookstores. In August 2017, Tara’s highly anticipated Is Your Dad a Pirate? will be available everywhere books are sold.
