Tara L Groody - Founder



The vision behind God Driven Women!  Wife to Tim Groody and mother of 3, they enjoy plugging God into their family to influence and grow from.  We have all had our challenges and take pride in the testimony that God has brought us through to be on fire for Him!

My husband and I continue to move forward in our walk with God daily and share the joy of putting our Faith into action!  Tim and I both enjoy connecting with those around us to build powerful relationships in Christ.

1 Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.



I have been involved with God as long as I can remember.  I attended Lutheran School in 6-8th Grade in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago and continue pursuing my Christian Education with a Bachelor's of Divinity and Certified Ministries. 

While working through Women's Ministries in Arizona, my passion lies in working with ALL types of women in leadership and personal development thru Christ.  

My purpose for creating God Driven Women is to guide and develop you individually towards a healthy relationship with Christ while supporting processes to move forward!



I have a strong passion for building people up!  In business and my personal life I enjoy working with people to empower and equip them to be successful.  In the world we live in, it is so easy to get defeated.  It's time to be driven for all the right reasons and take as many people as we can down this awesome path!  

I am proud to have published my first book in May of 2018 titled, "Defeated to Driven" Breaking the Cycle of Dysfunction.
