About Tonya

Ministry has been a big part of my adult life because I married Ron aka Pastor Ron Ruiz. I’ve spent two decades speaking and writing about issues from a biblical perspective; including body image, marriage, and parenting. I headed up a large drama club at our church where our team wrote and performed comedy sketches and plays based on stories and passages from the Bible – my favorites were Spiritual Hospital and Sheeple’s Court. I, also, spent several years full time on staff at a church working in women’s ministry and event planning. These day, I blog, travel with my retired husband, and keep busy with my grandkids.
