Tara McClary Reeves is a children’s book author, former assistant to the first lady of South Carolina, and a national pageant title-holder. But Tara says that all accomplishments pale when compared to the joy of one day meeting Jesus and laying her heavenly crown at His feet.
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” to Lee Reeves at their South Carolina wedding twenty-three years later. Today Tara lives in North Carolina where she teaches a weekly women’s Bible study and is doting mother to twins, Caroline and Daniel, and to surprise arrival, 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 partnership with Amanda Jenkins has produced The Knight and the Firefly, published February 2014 by B&H Kids. In early 2015, B&H Kids will release the sequel, The Pirate and the Firefly. Tara’s upcoming releases include the children’s devotional book, Point Me to Jesus.
