Meet Tamara Lexow

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tamara Lexow.

Tamara, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I have been in ministry to women and girls for most of my adult life, in one form or another. After my mom’s suicide in 1997, I knew God was calling me to walk through recovery and healing and to hold hands with other women who are struggling to see their own beauty and worth.

I write, speak, lead recovery groups, and teach about the love and grace God pours into each of us. I love to tell people about how God has worked in my life, my marriage, and my family. I also teach ladies about skincare, offer makeup tutorials, and work as the makeup artist for SnapGirl, Photography’s Senior Model Team. I think everyone deserves to see their inner beauty show up in photos. My makeup philosophy is about taking all the beauty God has given you and letting it shine from the inside out.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I don’t think any road is totally smooth and mine has been no different. Jesus promised that his followers would have struggles but I am so thankful for the strength and healing I have received through the grace of Christ. I went to cosmetology school after high school with plans to open a salon with my mom. When my dad left and my mom committed suicide, my life took some drastic turns down some very rough roads. Jesus never left my side though and his plans for me have always been for good. My own battle with PTSD, depression, food addiction and low self-esteem have all become part of my story and are the reasons I feel so passionate about walking alongside other women and their broken hearts.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I write, speak, and teach people about God’s healing love. I believe in telling the truth about my life – the good, bad, and the ugly. So many people get stuck in their heartache. I’ve been there and I know what it feels like to lose hope. I see my job as a calling to always point people to the hope of Jesus. Whether I am writing or teaching or helping someone with their makeup or skincare, I want them to know they are precious in the sight of Jesus.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I don’t believe in luck. I think God gives us all gifts, talents, and abilities. We get to choose how we will use them and who we will bless along the way. We can sit back, be lazy, and waste the gifts God has blessed us with or we can work hard to share everything we have with others.
