Hi I’m Tara from Phoenix, Arizona. I’m Erin's daughter and RMI's webmaster and web designer. I’m waiting to be married and have chosen to keep myself morally pure until marriage and the Lord reveals His choice for my husband. In the meantime, I am reading and rereading A Wise Woman while —experiencing the Lord as my Heavenly Husband.
"For your Creator will be your husband; the Lord of Heaven’s Armies is his name! He is your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, the God of all the earth." —Isaiah 54:5
I began working for RMI nine years ago and it’s been the most rewarding and incredible experience. From the daily encouragers and free courses —we get to hear how women are finding hope in their brokenness and the life changing experience of having an intimate relationship with their HH.
I was given the opportunity to travel extensively to meet with our Ministry Team and several partners around the world which first began some years ago when the Lord began to show me, and my mom, that I was going to spend some time abroad! At the time it was a Habakkuk 2:3 "appointed time" promise, so I was eagerly awaiting His good will and timing for it all to come about!
In September 2016 I flew to Brazil to meet two ministers and later that December a Nicaragua Ministry Retreat.
These two trips were just the beginning, just a glimpse into what He had planned for me! In 2017 I traveled to Japan for 6 months and then South Africa in between. A testimony to young women who will choose HIS ways over the world's ways.
Then began the LALTour "Living the Abundant Life Tour" in April 2018 where I flew to Turkey and met Sara (my forever friend) and the two of us began traveling. Our first country was Athens, Greece!! (Acts 17:16) then on to Dublin, Ireland where we traveled north by train to Belfast. Belfast, Ireland is where my mom’s grandfather was born and immigrated from.
After Ireland, we crossed the Irish Sea by ferry and made a short stop in Glasgow before heading to Edinburgh, Scotland.
Then Sara and I took the train down to London, England where we met at least 3 brides!
Our first stop on the European continent was PARIS—where we hadn’t even planned to go! Yet He lovingly orchestrated a meeting with two brides in Paris, France Adele whose RMT is “Was I Sincere in the Apologies I Made to Him?” We were so excited to finally meet her! Then meeting another bride (and former minister) we visited Brussels Belgium where my brother Dallas' brother-in-law, along with his family, are serving Convoy of Hope. Traveling through Germany and then Vienna Austria where we were blessed to meet and spend time with Aimée in Slovakia!!
Our HH took us to Venice, Italy —stopped in Florence and Pisa before heading to ROME and for the next six weeks, we rested physically but worked in Sicily. Memories we will forever cherish.
Again I had no idea traveling would continue! Traveling back to Rome, we flew to different countries. I traveled to Manila in the Philippines where I met Cherie— while Sara flew to Brazil.
He brought me to Japan, Singapore, Australia, back to London, England and Paris France meeting even more brides!! Lastly, the Lord allowed me to meet Sara in Istanbul Turkey upon her arrival from Brazil! This is when we found a Turkish translator for the Restore Your Marriage book!!
If there is ONE principle we repeat and follow it’s He LEADS ME…
Psalm 23: 1-3—
“The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He LEADS ME beside quiet waters. He restores my soul.”
I’m also reminded that this time last year was our board of directors retreat in PARIS, France. It was just like Him to not only allow us to come together and meet for the first time but also surround us with His love in the most romantic city in the world.
