Episode 39: Finding Hope to Overcome with Dr. Mel

Episode 39: Finding Hope to Overcome with Dr. Mel

Mel Tavares has a unique background that makes her relatable to people from all walks of life.  Often when women mention a challenge, crisis, or trauma they’ve experienced, Mel is able to relate and minister because she has walked a similar road.

She has been mentoring, counseling, and encouraging women for over 30 years over a cup of coffee, through the printed page, and as she speaks to groups. 


An award-winning author who has written four books under her name, Mel is a contributing writer to several works, including two 2021 releases: DaySpring’s Sweet Tea for the Soul: Comfort for Grieving Hearts and Christmas Moments. Her articles can be found online in many locations including CBN, Inspiration Ministries, Christian Women Living Magazine, and Inkspirations.  She also appears on PJNET and has guested on several podcasts. Mel holds a Doctorate of Ministry in Pastoral Care and Counseling.

You'll likely find her at her local church serving on staff, or in her writing studio, or in the kitchen whipping up dinner for her growing blended family of seven kids and ten grands. If you still can't find her-check her front porch in the Connecticut River Valley. She's often seen there sipping a cup of coffee
