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 in an effort 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.
Just read your article in Everyday Faith by Day Spring. I too always feel I am inadequate to host in my home. And as for Bonnie, she sounds just like my precious sister who always makes everyone feel so welcome & their visit cherished by her. After reading your article I am going to really try to do better being a host. My problem I think is that I need to relax and not expect perfection while remembering God didn’t visit any perfect homes. Just ones that welcomed Him with love. I look forward to following you. Thank you for the encouragement to follow Biblical examples of hospitality in place of the worldly ones😊.
