Today we are featuring Geri Tanzer! Geri's story is one that offers a unique perspective about recognizing the community around you and taking steps to cultivate it. Geri was raised Catholic and shares that she did come to a true understanding of who Jesus is at a young age. She felt a hunger for God and church and attended on her own. However, in college church was not so much of a priority, but she always felt she had that personal relationship. Life went on and Geri found herself married with a son. Her son began attending a new school later in elementary school and this is where Geri was introduced to multiple women from Desert Springs. Slowly but surely the Lord began to build out this community for her. An encounter at Heathrow Airport with Erica Wiggenhorn is what really started drawing Geri into this idea of community and diving deeper into her relationship with God. For the first time in her life, she began to truly study and know the Bible. All of this led up to Geri receiving a breast cancer diagnosis at age 46. This was something that she had feared for years and for it to become a reality was heart wrenching. And yet, God was faithful. He was faithful particularly through His people, the ones He had seemed to specifically place right around Geri. What is even more amazing is that this eventually turned to a ministry opportunity for Geri herself. Suddenly she was able to be this light for Christ as she dealt with this diagnosis all while working in the corporate world. You will be encouraged as you hear about how the Lord revealed community, how He healed and how He strengthened Geri to minister to others then and even more so now. We love Geri's boldness in creating Christian community in a corporate workplace and trust that God is using her in great ways. 

Geri wanted to give a special thanks to those who came around her during her cancer journey: Andy & Brienne McDonald, Barry & Carolyn Boehmer and Jonathan & Erica Wiggenhorn
