Take Heart Ministry – the story behind


After Tawny lost her husband of nearly 35 years, thoughtful friends and acquaintances confided they had wanted to do something but didn’t know what to do, so didn’t do anything, and then felt terrible about it!


Through her personal journey, Tawny realized people are often at a loss to know what to do or say though they REALLY do want to do SOMETHING to show they care. And it could be so easy!  


Take Heart Ministry was formed in response to the heart’s cry of those who wanted to reach out but didn’t know how and now ministers to or pulls alongside those who have suffered loss. 


Take Heart also provides programs for the hurting on how to navigate holidays and well-meaning friends; tools to assist in becoming grounded and independent again and activities to fellowship and connect with others.
