The Commercial

If you live in the US it is time to get glued to your tv:) because Farmers has come out with a commercial based on "our story" I don't know any details of what channels it's on, but I just know it's nationwide! I think it's pretty awesome. I'm just so so thankful that we can help people realize the VALUE and NECESSITY of having life insurance! Let me know if you see it!!

I actually found it on youtube so here it is!!

Tara,

What a strong and courageous thing to do! I have been telling all my friends to get life insurance. Wish someone had told us...

I saw the commercial linked to my friend's facebook page, watched the commercial, then found your blog. I am touched and amazed by the strength that God has given you, and I am praying that He continues to use this commercial to draw more people to Him. Looking forward to getting to "know" you more through your blog. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

In Him,
Kim

I've been reading and following you since I found you through "sweet caroline" and you're so strong to do that commercial. Thank God you had life insurance. Thank God Preston always put his family first. Keep doing what you're doing and be strong. Sending you hugs! XX

I've been following your story and just saw the commercial on TV and had to come to your Blog to confirm. So incredible - had me in tears. Thank you for sharing your message. God bless:)

Tara, I just saw the commercial this evening on Fox News while watching a repeat of Hannity. It was around 12:10am ET. I was actually putting some photos in an album, half paying attention to the commercials, but when I heard the words spoken in the Farmers commercial I looked up and saw you. I think it is amazing of you to share your story like that. Life insurance is so important because you just never know, and I think younger adults especially don't think about it.

Anyway, I've been checking up on you for a while now, but I think this is my first comment. Your story really touched me and brought me to tears. It's just the unimaginable. My prayers are with you and the children.

Hi Tara! We've never met, but I've been following your courageous story (I grew up with Claudia and Tyler, and have been praying for all of you in this situation, as is my entire family). Your faith is truly inspiring. And your boys are absolutely precious!

I saw your commercial yesterday morning on our ABC station here in the Seattle area.

Thank you for opening up your heart and sharing your story. You are an inspiration to many!

Hi Tara,
I saw your commercial on the Food Network in Connecticut. I'd seen your blog (from linking from "Sweet Caroline") and recognized your story as soon as I saw it. (I was actually on the treadmill at the gym when I saw it!)

Blessings to you and your little ones.

Renee said...

Hi Tara! This is Renee, Andrea's childhood friend. I want you to know that I just saw your commercial. Tara you are an amazing person. Andrea is fortunate to have a great friend like you. You are such an inspiration. You are in my prayers. Congratulations on Micah's birth.

Love,
Renee

You don't know me, but I'm a friend of a friend of Bonnie's so I've been reading your blog since everything happened to her. I was in Las Vegas this week and saw your commercial on tv there. You did a wonderful job. Just wanted you to know that you have fans in Little Rock, AR

Ty said...

Charity and I saw it last night at her Grandparents house in Red Deer. So I guess it's showing in Canada too!

I've been seeing the commercial this past week and finally last night put two and two together. When the tragedy happened and I read your blog, I was telling my family about it. It just got to me. So last night when I saw the commercial again I said OMG...and my hubby asked what???? I said thats the gal who's blog I read of her hubby dying, and he remembered me telling him.
It really hits home...I'm so glad you had life insurance. Usually young people don't think they need it.

Brooke said...

Hi Tara! I've been reading your blog for many months but have never commented. I am a native Oregonian, but am living in Idaho and just saw your commercial on TV over here. Thanks to you, we are also in the process of getting life insurance with Farmers. You are so strong and your boys are so special to have you!

I shared your story with a friend who lives in Spain with her husband and two little kids. My intent was to show what it's like to have faith in Christ, since you live it out and also have a great way of expressing by words. She watched the longer version on internet, and convinced her husband that they need life insurance. So...it's going outside of US as well. :) I hope they'll come to accept Jesus as their savior as well...

Awesome commercial. I actually work for a competing insurance co but you have renewed my belief that every customer needs to hear about life insurance. You never know when you will need it, or your family will. How wonderful that Preston took such good care of you and your family.

I saw the commercial in GA last night! Continuing to lift you and your sweet boys in our prayers.

Bonnie said...

Okay Tara, I have been DVR'ing TLC and ABC trying to catch it (Weird to fast forward the show part and watch the commercials!) I'm so glad you posted it here. It is beautiful and touching. You are amazing. (Ps I'm still determined to see it on TV, I'll let you know when I catch it!) Love you!
