About Tina





I love to tell the stories of life that connect us. My life has been about unraveling, a continuous journey. Blessed with a marriage of over thirty years to my husband Joel, we travel this roller coaster of life while learning to live again after the loss of our 5-year old son, Ryan. Privileged to have two grown children, Chelsea and Zachary, I am enriched by the opportunity and growth that our children bring to our lives. With a passion for writing, I untangle the heartbreak and allow the light in by sharing simple tales about life, love and loss.

My  passion for running continues to fuel the best medicine for life as I reach for a new goal of 16 races in 2016. Focusing on the  positive, scattering kindness and Paying it forward with a loving desire to give back with random acts of kindness, these are my truths...

While searching for a reason to go on after losing their five-year old son Ryan, she discovered that giving back could actually save her. Tina Zarlenga is married with two grown children and her first grandchild, sharing stories of inspiration and hope, as well as her journey through grief with emotional essays of life on her website  Unraveling My Heart the Write Way and through a campaign to pay it forward for Ryan she uncovered JOY. Published essays can be found in Bella Grace magazine, The Compassionate Friends, as well as many online communities.
