Tina Dorward is a wife to Jeff, mother to Jack and Peter, a part-time Association Executive and a full-time follower of Christ! Although trained in Communications in college, she received an advanced diploma in Biblical Counseling from Light University in 2011 and has been seeking ways to use her training and the gifts God has given her in this area. Tina is also a trained Grief Share leader and trained Community of Hope Caregiver.
Tina has been writing since she was a young child, beginning with poetry, then corporate business writing and then dabbling in fiction. She received a certificate in fiction writing from the Long Ridge Writer’s Group and became a certified proofreader. Tina changed from her communication consulting business after feeling God’s call on her life to be trained in Christian Counseling with hopes of helping people within and outside of the church with the challenges that we each face. Although she is once again working part-time in the business industry, Tina is using her gifts in the prayer ministry at her local church, praying with those attending weekend services and sending cards to those who share prayer requests. She also will soon be helping mentor those with spiritual questions and a desire to grow deeper in God’s Word.
In her free time, Tina enjoys spending time with her family, going to her sons’ sporting events, painting with acrylic, and reading.
