Married at 27 and widowed at 33, she has single-handily raised 2 young adults, one of which was still in the womb when her husband left without having time to say good-bye. She has an inspirational story to share, one that show the power of God's love, light and hope on a road to recovery from a life-changing pall of darkness. She is passionate about kingdom work, and this will become evident as she tells her story. In her personal reflections, she has created a volume chronicling her experiences. ‘Tara has a lovely smile, a sweet nature and as a single parent, has created a wholesome, nurturing environment to help her son and daughter develop into exceptionally well-rounded individuals. TWW will exist to support widows through a most devastating period in their lives, to remind them that God cares and that they have not been forgotten or forsaken.  That God will raise up helpers to support them through their new journey.  To give proper recognition to widows and not sweep them under the carpets and pretend that they do not exist. And finally,  To care for them as the bible says, they should be cared for, either by their families or by the church. ‘Tara has a diverse range of interests ranging from reading, writing, cooking exotic dishes in a informal setting, period drama, mysteries and biographical accounts of interesting people. For the past 20 years she has worked in an English primary school as administrator. At her golden milestone of 50, she set out to respond to more challenges to help others. This has been rewarding, as she has been appointed a trustee, in the board of her church charity. TWW is another initiative ready to come out of incubation, to catch widows and single mothers struggling with the pressures, of walking alone trying to juggle, some really “big balls”. ‘Tara will take us on a whistle-stop, from her beginnings, early choices, life-events, responding to challenges, single-parenting, dealing with loss, re-branding herself, foraying into authoring and promises to be a roller-coaster of joy and a few tears as we listen to her story.
