Hi. My name is Tammy and here is what I want you to know right up front.
For years I worked hard ~ very hard ~ to do all the right things so that I would get all the right results.
Because as a rule-following church girl, that is how I believed the Christian life worked. I believed that:
- If I married a Christian man, I would have the perfect Christian marriage.
- If I raised my kids God’s way, I would have the perfect Christian family.
- If I followed God’s rules, I would have the perfect Christian life.
But when those formulas failed to work, I was disappointed. Disillusioned. And mad. Very mad.
I was mad at God.
I wondered... Why? Why, after all the striving to please God, did he seem to abandon me over and over again? Why did He answer the prayers of others, but not mine?
After wrestling with God through a very long, dark season, I finally realized I was looking at God as a list of requirements and longing for blessings. But He was looking at me as a precious daughter and longing for relationship.
If you’ve ever felt abandoned by God...
If you’ve ever felt like you can't measure up to a standard...
If you’ve ever longed to know God’s love in a real way.
Tammy is a speaker, a wife, a mom and most importantly, a grandma. She has been a Bible teacher with a deep love for the scriptures for over 30 years, but it wasn’t until the hurts of this world collided with the hope of God's word that her relationship with Jesus truly began.
The entire Bible is God’s inspired, infallible revelation to man and declares His design for mankind.
There is only One true God, revealed in three persons—Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Jesus is the Son of God, both human and divine; He was born of a virgin, without sin. He lived the life we could not live and died the death we should have died. He was resurrected from the dead after three days and ascended to the Father. He will return to establish His kingdom on earth.
Man was created in the image and likeness of God. He sinned by acting independently of God. Because of that, man is now a sinner by nature and by choice.
Every person can receive salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone.
The Holy Spirit indwells and empowers believers and is given as a seal and a pledge of our inheritance in Christ Jesus.
Our physical bodies will be resurrected. Eternal glory awaits believers in heaven and everlasting punishment for unbelievers in hell.
Every believer is commissioned by Jesus to share the Gospel and make disciples.
