Tara McClary Reeves

Tara McClary Reeves is a passionate teacher of the joys and challenges that come from being a committed follower of Jesus Christ. She is also a wife, mother, and award-winning children’s book author.

A graduate of Furman University with a degree in political science, Tara later pursued a Master’s in Biblical counseling from Birmingham Theological Seminary while she was the Director of the Singles Ministry for Women at Briarwood Church. In 1998, Tara began dating her husband-to-be, Lee Reeves. 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” at her South Carolina wedding twenty-three years later.

Today, Tara lives in North Carolina where she teaches a weekly Bible study for women and is the doting mother to teenage twins, Caroline and Daniel, and toddler 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 2014 collaboration with Amanda Jenkins and B&H Kids produced The Knight and the Firefly and The Pirate and the Firefly. The Knight and the Firefly won Christian Retailing's Best "Children's Novel of the Year" in 2015. On August 1, 2016, Tara’s devotional for families, Point Me to Jesus [BroadStreet Publishing], hit bookstores. This summer, Tara looks forward to the launch of her latest children's title Is Your Dad a Pirate? with Mascot Books and ICON Media Group.

Tara is a gifted communicator of God's Truth and enjoys speaking to women's events. She has appeared on 100 Huntley Street and was the inaugural “Meet the Author” guest November 5, 2016 at The Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, NC.
