Tatyana Claytor

Tatyana Claytor is primarily a lover of story and truth. As an English teacher, she is surrounded by the stories of the ages, but as a lover of God, she is enveloped in the Story beyond all ages. Her desire is to know the Author of this story as clearly as possible that she might help others see God’s truth in their lives and His plan in their stories. She currently lives in Cocoa, Florida with her three story-loving children and her husband, a minister of Youth and Missions. She has a Master’s degree in Education from Nova Southeastern University and a Master’s degree in Professional Writing from Liberty University. She is also the editor for Growthtrac Ministries, a website dedicated to helping marriages. She is pursuing her PhD in Rhetoric and Composition from University of Central Florida.

Our Memory Makes Us

We have to go back to our hardest memories, those moments when we decided life truths and speak the Gospel to them.

Missions as Encouragement

Seeing doesn’t mean fame (which doesn’t satisfy as much as it promises) but seeing means belonging. It means community and support, not necessarily financially but emotionally.

Daddy Issues: Umbrella Academy 2 and Ex-vangelicals

Those who love well are on the path to healing.

Hidden Gifts: One Woman’s Journey Toward Discovering Her Calling

While I would hardly consider myself a person of prodigious talent like the character Lazarov, I too have something unique to offer the world which is more than my progeny and support.

Suitably Dressed

Instead of protecting me from my worst fear of worthlessness, God has pressed in, forcing me to face him as that vulnerable little girl who wants to please.

Because He Is Near

I realize I have a tendency to go to physical items to find God, which I don’t think is wholly bad given that physical reality is God’s handiwork. He often uses the physical as a doorway to the unseeable heart of God.

The Fear of Eternity

It wasn’t until I read the novella, Stories of Your Life and Others, by Ted Chiang—which inspired a blockbuster film, Arrival—that I began to understand things.

Literature as a Gospel Forerunner

Love, of course, is the answer, but, surprisingly, it is not the love of the parent, or even a human, that saves the day.

Finding Resolutions

The audience cares about their heroes—evidenced by the emotions expressed by the deaths in Avengers: Infinity War.

Life Will Survive. Love Will Redeem.

If the fruit of our lives is what gives us value, it is no wonder many are disillusioned with the idea of inherent human value.

Be found. Build brand. Expand your audience. Grow influence. Sell products. Prosper.
