My name is Tanya Yaremkiv. But you can call me Tan or Tanya.
I’m a writer, worship leader, and Bible-lover.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved to write. I remember scribbling on every line of every page even before I knew how to spell, dreaming that one day I’ll grow up and become a writer.
So, here I am!
I started this blog to share about my adventures with God, which unraveled to the next level where I can share more than that. I’m here to encourage, inspire, and motivate you through faith principles, life experiences, and deep biblical insight. I desire to see people grow in the knowledge and revelation of Jesus Christ and live life full of purpose no matter where they’re at.
I grew up in a Russian Christian home and received Jesus as my Savior when I was 8. But life took its turns, as did I, and I struggled to understand who I was in Christ for a loooong time. I was a very warm Christian – with one foot in the church and the other in the world (I’ll share the full story in a blog post later).
Long story short, I recommitted my life to Jesus when I turned 18 and went to Bible school. There, I learned the fundamental truths and the power of God’s word. I discovered the simple Gospel and recommitted my life with one request: make my life an adventure. I asked, and He delivered (or still delivers!).
I was born in Russia and moved to the U.S. when I was about 8 months old. We first lived in Washington state before moving to Alaska, where I mainly grew up.
I currently live in Colorado with my husband and pupper, Guddu (Guh-doo).
I absolutely love it and all the sunshine we get!
Some of my favorite things are:
- friends, family, and parties!
- coffee and tea
- reading and studying (books, Bibles)
- being active (working out, being outside, etc.)
- creating (writing, painting, crafting, etc.)
- worshiping Jesus
- and of course, adventuring!
Professionally, I’m an associate director of media for an international ministry based in Denver, Colorado. I aspire to become an author of best-selling books and devotionals, and hope to one day share the love of Jesus as a speaker.

You are the light of the world; a city on a hill that cannot be hidden; a lamp on a lampstand.
Shine before people in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
When you sing or pray about Gods worthiness, He reciprocates that to you… because you reflect Him!
Fear is the glue that keeps you stuck. Faith is the solvent that sets you free. Shannon L. Alder
Let your life reflect the faith you have in God. Fear nothing and pray about everything. Be strong, trust God’s word, and trust the process. – Germany Kent
