“Our truest responsibility to the irrationality of the world is to paint, or sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.”Madeleine l’Engle
Hello! I am Tanja Buzzi Moriarty. My first name is pronounced “Tann ya.” I was born February 25, 1965 and have lived in Connecticut all of my life. I’m married, for almost 32 years to the best man. We have two adult children who are doing well.
I’ve been on a faith journey more or less, throughout my entire life. I grew up going to church, rebelled, and then hit some major life situations in which I needed to have faith to hang on. There was a miscarriage, then my husband away at war while I was carrying our first child, his career as a cop, my homeless father needing shelter and how he lived well for his last 14 years, my daughter’s car accident, marital challenges, self-conflicts, being part of an adult child of an alcoholic family, Sean’s and my motorcycle accident resulting in him breaking his neck in five places.
Through many toils and snares, prayer, praise and wonder, I continue to be amazed, calmed and steadied by our merciful God. I continue to be interested by other spiritual practices and find that many believe in one God, relating in many different ways. Yet, I still find my relationship with Jesus, the Holy Spirit and God to be most relational and constant for me.
I also strive to follow Philippians 4:8: “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of respect, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if something is excellent or praiseworthy, think about these things.”
Oh, yeah. I also love to travel, camp, bake, be silly and seek my ancestral history.
