I’m Tammie. I’m a wife to a gem of a husband and mama to four of the nicest kids you’ll ever meet. I chase my kids around our little hobby farm along with horses, goats, chickens, cats and an ungainly standard poodle. My job is to ensure everyone is alive at the end of each day. I try to parent with grace, humility and as much humor as possible.
Our world pushes women to strive beyond what is humanly possible. But I believe that ordinary is awesome. Because average women can change the world by steadfastly serving God and loving others using the gifts, talents, and resources right in front of them.
I am passionate about God’s command to love and serve others in community. Turns out, He wasn’t kidding when He commanded us to serve the poor, the fatherless, and the widow. I pray for and encourage the Church to return to it’s historic role of caring for vulnerable kids and walking with the widow in life-on-life ministry. And as a host mom to kids from hard places, I know first hand that the blessings flow both ways.
I hope you find some encouragement, laughter, and food for thought here at twenty shekels.
