K.I.S.H. Magazine TRAILBLAZER SPOTLIGHT Featuring Tonya M. Tilghman!!!

KISH: Tell us about you…

My name is Tonya M. Tilghman, I was born on February 14, 1977, to Caleb Harris and Diane Johnson. I am a mother of four children and a grandmother of twenty-three. I graduated from Site of Delaware in 1994 with a G.E.D. My mother passed away at an early age, and I was a mother to all my siblings, while still raising my children. In 2008, I survived a shooting that almost took my life. After that I turned to the Lord. I visited churches, Greater Love in Milford, De where Bishop Bordley was the Pastor. I also visited Holy Trinity in Dover, De where I met my first husband. His name was Andrew Tilghman who passed away unfortunately. I finally found Grace and Mercy Temple of Praise in Camden, De with Pastor Dr. Lynn Franklin. While I attended Grace and Mercy I aspired to marry again, Mr. John Leggett. After my unfortunate divorce from Mr. Leggett, I decided to explore a career in which I was already working. I took classes and became a certified Nursing Assistant. Being a Nursing Assistant has changed my life because I love working with the elderly. Through it all, I would like to thank God for keeping me, my father, my children, and grandchildren.
