Tania Joy Gibson, host of Beauty for Ashes, was Miss Illinois 1996 and competed at the Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City. She was also Miss Illinois Teen and Miss America Teen at the age of 16. Tania went to the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship School of Ministry where she studied revival, prophetic worship, teaching, leading, and was part of the worship and prophetic teams. She also graduated with a Bachelor of Business Finance from South University. Tania spent over 15 years in corporate America working within the finance, HR, biotech, and retail industries until recently, when the Lord pulled her out to focus on ministry and building Beauty for Ashes – a business focused on faith, family, and freedom, by exposing the demonic strongholds attached to the mountains of influence in our world.
She has been singing since she was 3 and has performed on numerous stages across the country as an actress/singer/performer. She has had many deep, rich encounters with the Lord and is an anointed prophetic worshipper. Her desire is to see the Lord use her story to encourage others, set the captives free, and proclaim that God is ALWAYS GOOD! Tania operates as a modern-day Esther, prepared and called “for such a time as this.” She has a passion, particularly for women, to help people rise into the warriors that God created them to be!
