Just Building A Bus…No Big Deal

When I walked into the abortion clinic the first time in 1987 I was terrified. My boyfriend and I weaved throughout the parked cars on a breezy, warm, southern California summer day on our way into where our lives would forever change. Hand in hand we moved forward and nothing was stopping us. No words, no person, no visual existed... Read more

Inviting You In

I love community. I love connecting. I love sharing and encouraging. Things I’ve always known about myself but have become a greater desire in the last couple of years. I love the reach that social media has. It’s like instant pen-paling. I had a pen pal when I was in grade-school. It took weeks for me to get a letter... Read more

Seeking Hope – Giving Hope

She told me she wanted an abortion. She just didn’t want another child. She cried and tore a kleenex tissue into hundreds of shredded pieces while asking for my advice. Honestly, I didn’t have to say much. I told her that her seeking me out and meeting together that day meant she already knew what she needed to do. All... Read more

Own What You’re Good At

Last night a friend asked how I was doing after releasing the book and beginning to fill my calendar with speaking engagements. I was honest. I told her I have been extremely overwhelmed with it all. Being a self-published author can be tough. Everything rests on your shoulders. Thankfully I married a strong set of shoulders. Just the night before... Read more

My Name Is Tam And I Wear Leggings

There’s a bunch of chatter and attention being given to women who wear leggings and yoga pants outside of their homes. Whether it be for fashion or functionality…it’s getting some big notice as of late. I wear leggings. I don’t wear Yoga pants because I don’t do the Yoga’s. But I love my leggings. I wear them with long sweaters... Read more

The One Prayer You Don’t Pray But Should

My friend, Margaret Feinberg, has a powerful story of finding joy in the most unlikely of circumstances. Her new book and Bible study, Fight Back With Joy, just released—and it’s the most vulnerable and shocking she’s ever penned. I invited her to share a bit of her journey with you. Troy’s daughter is a sparkling six-year-old ball of hilarity. She... Read more

Born With A Beat

He was three years old. Dakota was THE cutest little boy E.V.E.R. I mean, come on… He always loved music. He preferred it playing in the house whenever we were home. I certainly didn’t mind. There is a lot of musical talent on both sides of the family, so Dakota having a love for it didn’t surprise me at all.... Read more

If She Stays, She Deserves It.

“Well she deserves it if she’s gonna keep staying with him!” I can’t tell you how many times I heard this while growing up. My mom, staying in abusive relationships, seemingly enjoying it. I saw the pain. I saw the agony. I saw the blood, bumps, and bruises. I saw the ‘I’m sorry’s’. I saw the promises to never hurt... Read more
