GUEST BIBLE TEACHER AND SPEAKER Laughter is great for the soul

It was said by a 5 year old – John 3:16   “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that who so ever believed in him will not perish but have ‘ever-laughing’ life.”

Teaching with humor and impact is what makes Tanya so unique.


Tanya’s love and inspirational approach of the Word and her perspective to laugh at life, is what makes your time with her unforgettable. . . Tanya, like many others, has experienced great loss. During her season of great loss, she found how to suffer well, how to grieve, and choose hope.  She loves sharing her walk through her journey of sorrow.  Being able to have this perspective, you must also choose to laugh.  Tanya makes sure you will laugh as she sings fun songs. Add this element of Choosing Hope and Humor, to your next retreat and make it an event where you will walk away blessed and refreshed.
