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.

I wear them with long sweaters... Read more

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

Fearing Your Past

    That time in the summer of 2011 when Angie Smith asked me, and several other women, to be a part of Blooms Book Club, at (in) courage to talk about Angie’s 2nd book, What Women Fear.

Mistaeks Happen

^^^ Right?? Your mistakes don’t make you a mistake. And if anyone suggests such a thought to you they are wrong. Deeply wrong. If you have told yourself that you’re a mistake then you are wrong too. Yes, I said it. You are not a mistake because you’ve made mistakes. May I suggest that you are quite fortunate because of them?... Read more

Every time I watch House Hunters I am amazed at the people who see bedroom ceiling fans and quickly exclaim, “Oh! That has got-to-go!” And what about the walk-in closets so large you could dock a yacht in’em? Women be like…”Won’t even hold my summer sandals.” But the ceiling fan haters get me every time.
