​Tonya has a passion for helping hurting and scorned women, because she too was once a hurt and scorned woman. ​She has been married to her husband Cedric Raby for 14 years and together they have raised a loving family who's foundation has been built on their love of God, His Holy Word and their love for each other.  She and her husband live a peaceful life in Las Vegas, Nevada, where serving the Lord is not only her joy, but her mission. 

Tonya Raby was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois under the watchful eye and wisdom of her Father, and her  beloved Grandmother, who instilled in her the Holy Word of God at a very early age. Through the life lessons gained from trials and tribulations of her life, the loving counsel of her Grandmother, and the committment and support of her husband, she has written two books in hopes that the lessons she has learned can be a blessing to others.
