Tara Hackney loves Jesus and the little children of the world. From villages in Nigeria and Zambia to orphanages in Romania and India, she has held and prayed over babies, told Bible stories through translators, and danced to songs with silly motions all with the hope of pointing tiny souls to the One who created them. Tara is the founder of Jesus Loves You Ministries, a ministry of encouragement dedicated to recapturing the wonder, exploring the depth, and spreading the good news of those three glorious words: Jesus loves YOU! As a mother of five, she can often be found scrubbing out grass stains, judging coloring contests, doubling recipes, and driving all over town. In the quiet hours, she enjoys boating, date nights with her hubby, and getting sand between her toes. Tara lives with her family by the sea in Wilmington, North Carolina.
