In February 2016, Tara’s husband flew home to Jesus at the age of 46 following a 14-month battle with brain cancer. This forever altered her life and the lives of her children. Yet, God has already used it for good. He wastes nothing, not even our pain. The course of all her children’s paths changed drastically. One of the things the Lord told her to do though this experience was write and as she did she began to remember a love long buried. This was a love of words. She remembered how they carried her into places of hope, adventure and the truth of God’s word. It reminded her of a dream she had buried under years of mothering, homeschooling and even teaching.
Since Alan has been gone, Tara has developed a blog, written a Christian Children’s series, signed with an agent and is presenting to publishers. She writes daily of what it looks like to “Lift Up Our Eyes” and find Jesus in all our circumstance over on IG @tara_dickson.
While Tara has had lots of experience in the past speaking, in theatre, teaching elementary
students and organizing and directing church programs she loves connecting with women’s
hearts specifically. Whether you are having a women’s church retreat, mops group, or anything
else, her greatest desire is to be faithful in sharing HOPE with other women
