STRENGTH THROUGH FAITH

Two stories that will change your perspective on life forever.

A STORY OF RESILIENCE

Detective Tania Owen met Vickie Speed 10 days before the murder of her husband, Sergeant Steve Owen.  These two women met at a fundraiser for Tania and Steve’s fellow officer and friend, Detective Mitch Speed, who was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer.

After the loss of both husbands, Tania and Vickie formed a bond and sisterhood most would never understand.  Standing firm on faith, they have endured life’s hardships only by God’s grace.

Days and months went by of these two women sharing their struggles of heartache, raising kids, marriage and life with a first responder.  Soon they were asked to share their testimony, stories, and life with two incredible men they called husband.

Time and time again a singular question kept arising “how did you two make it work?”

A NEW PERSPECTIVE

Tania and Vickie knew their perspective was valuable, as law enforcement wives.  They went through everything, from the ups and downs of marriage to facing grief on a daily basis and learning to start life over again.

Their new book touches on all these things—emphasizing the raw truth of their experiences.  They wanted to help other wives married to first responders by sharing their hardships and triumphs.
