Biography for Reverend Theresa
Tracy & Brandon
The Girl Tyler
My approach to the ministry and each individual’s religious or spiritual beliefs is that every path to, or belief in a God or Spirit (or not!) is an individual and personal matter, and all are valid!
I have been ordained as an Interfaith “Minister of the Gospel” through Metaphysical Universal Ministries, affiliated with St. John’s Church of Faith in Allentown, an actual physical church that provides an interfaith service every Sunday. This ministry meets the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as to who may legally marry you, and is not an internet ordination! See Disclaimer of Liability (PDF)
My education is a combination of traditional and metaphysical. I am a High Honors Graduate of Penn State University with a Bachelors Degree in Behavioral Sciences (1994) as well as a charter member of Pi Gamma Mu, the International Honor Society of Social Sciences (1994)–Pennsylvania Alpha Beta Chapter. I have also completed a Doctorate of Philosophy of Metaphysics in 1995; and a Masters of Holistic Ministries in 2004; as well as having completed the coursework for a Doctorate of Holistic Ministries.
Having assumed the roles of wife, mother and grandmother, I have a deep understanding of the joys and challenges these roles bring to our lives and understand the challenges to balance our lives between responsibilities and well-being. I have worked in the corporate world with positions in sales, marketing, customer service, administrative duties and have event planning experience. I am a Reiki Master and a published author on Reiki.
A portion of fees earned through Inner Peace Ministries are donated to the Harrisburg Humane Society, Wounded Warrior Project, and the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank.
It is a joy and privilege to be honored to officiate the joining of two individuals into a loving partnership and to assist them in creating a ceremony that is a unique reflection of their relationship, values and beliefs!
