Orlando School Counselor Leaves to Educate Parents Instead!


Orlando (February 14th, 2020)- Tara Boddie, an educator for over 15 years recently left the school system to help parents build successful families to impact the lives of children. Starting as a classroom teacher in 2005, Boddie thought she could best serve her community by academically preparing students to achieve and become productive members of society, but after a few short years she realized that the day-to-day family issues was more of a factor in their success than their intelligence. After serving 10 years as a guidance counselor for children ages 3 to 18 Tara Boddie has finally decided to help the family.

Gaining experience as marriage ministry leaders in their church, Tara and her husband Jason started The Healthy Marriage Movement where they engage couples through workshops and conferences on how to strengthen their marriage and build healthy marriages for the sake of their children. In 2019, Tara penned her first book, “Marriage Is A Beautiful Thing, But I Wish I Would’ve Known” (Self Published December 2019) to highlight the challenges couples experience juggling purposefulness, marriage, and children, and how they can experience a life-changing transformation realizing the power they have to cultivate healthy marriages and families.

On March 7, 2020, Tara invites the media and public to her book discussion and signing at a private location to be released to those who register for the event and media who contact Boddie. This open and transparent discussion will jump start a couple’s journey to loving their spouse uninhibited and utilizing the power God gave us to impact our family and build a continued legacy of successful marriages.

Boddie, married and raising three kids, tells her story in an inspiring manner that draws in the reader and gives them hope for a more fulfilling marriage. “Marriage Is A Beautiful Thing, But I Wish I Would’ve Known” encourages couples to make a positive transformation by first understanding that marriage is not self-serving then learning to love their spouse beyond their faults as Christ loved the church.

In order to walk in that love there are four critical areas discussed:

  • Setting a firm foundation and understanding the value of the “Ministry of Marriage”
  • Overcoming a self-serving mentality and using the gifts God gave us to have a more fulfilling marriage
  • Balancing your time in order to have healthy relationships in all areas of your life
  • Successful strategies for building a healthy marriage and maintaining love for a lifetime


“Whether you are single and considering if marriage is for you, or you are married and wish to unfold the true joy of the marital experience, this book will give you a deeper understanding of who God has called you to be as a spouse and how you are divinely gifted to love your spouse into purpose.

‘Cause after all… Marriage is a beautiful thing.” -Tara Boddie

This is the book I didn’t know I needed and wish I had before marriage. As a wife of 18 years, I am looking at my role in an entirely new and exciting way! The author uses humor, transparency and biblical truth to illustrate how the role of the wife helps to cultivate and sustain a healthy marriage. It truly is the blueprint all women entering marriage should follow. Get ready to laugh and be positively challenged. The book is an easy read and even includes powerful reflection questions after each section. I highly recommend this book to ALL women (single, married, divorced, etc). You won’t be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars If You’ve been married less than 50 years, you should read this book!

Just finished reading “Marriage Is A Beautiful Thing…@ by Tara Boddie. If you have been married less than 50 years and are looking to “level up your relationship” you need this book.

Tara’s humor comes through as she get’s very transparent about the challenges she has faced in her marriage and how they overcame them. There are questions to ponder at the end of each chapter to help you honestly evaluate where you are in your own “ministry of marriage”.

If nothing else you will learn the difference between an Eve decision and a Godly decision. #My2Cents​

As a single person of faith I found this book to be engaging, enlightening & entertaining. This text was written in such a way that married & unmarried people could benefit. This powerful book unfolds God’s plan for marriage. Viewing marriage as a ministry takes on a totally different perspective & level of accountability. Throughout this text I was reminded of the beauty of marriage as well as the duties of the husband & the wife. Standing firmly on God’s word, this book is sure to bless many couples & singles alike. It sure blessed me!
