Dara never doubted that God made this world. She has always understood Him as her Creator. When Dara was 13 years old, she asked Jesus to come into her life and be her Savior and Lord. As Dara got older, she allowed Jesus to be Lord over more and more areas of her life. She experienced Him as her provider, her anchor, her King, and finally, at age 39, Dara was able to crawl up into God’s lap and call Him Father. It is there that she loves to spend her time for in His presence there is joy. Dara loves to sing and dance before her King.
Dara was born with Spina Bifida and deals with chronic pain due to a five level fusion, but she is walking! And every step is a praise to God. Dara overcame many types of childhood abuse through the unconditional love and example of her husband, Tracy, of 29 years, and she was finally able to understand and accept God’s unconditional love after she went into Christian counseling at 39 years old due to clinical depression. Dara has also worked through 30+ moves, children with learning disabilities, twins, and the rigors of ministry. Through it all, God has always remained faithful and true.
Dara loves chocolate, sunsets, walks with her husband, reading, studying, playing the piano, singing, keeping in touch with her sons, and playing with her grandsons.
