Conversations with Interracial Couples with Sandra and Ryan Tanner

This is the first episode in our Conversations with Interracial Couples Series. Today, we are interviewing Sandra and Ryan Tanner.

Ryan and Sandra Tanner have been married for almost 8 years and they live in North Metro Atlanta with their 3 children. Their ages are 17, 14, and 7. They share how their roads lead them to each other after many years, the struggles they have been through and some great advice on making a marriage work. They are a beautiful couple with a rich story who believe deeply in teaching their children to respect everyone, regardless of their race, religion or gender.

I loved this interview and I know you will too. You can continue the conversation with Sandra at: https://www.optimizedlife.com/ or on Instagram at: https://www.instagram.com/loving_life_with_5/
