Tammy Whitehurst      

Christian Motivational Speaker; Founder, Joy for the Journey

Tammy Whitehurst is a Christian speaker and writer, encouraging women to experience an undying faith that sustains the trials we all endure. She is the founder of Joy for the Journey and shares the gift of laughter and encouragement. She taught in the middle school classroom for 16 years and will always count it a privilege to be a teacher. She left the public school classroom to become a student again at the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary where she earned certification in women's ministry. She influences and impacts people with the good news that we can all have joy in our journey regardless of our circumstances. She is a voice of encouragement to all who hear her speak.

Tammy speaks at teacher conferences, luncheons, church retreats, schools and various other events. Additionally, Tammy served on staff at Mobberly Baptist Church in Longview, TX.

She has spoken in and been warmly received by such church denominations as Baptist, Methodist, Assemblies of God, Cowboy Chruches, and the Community Church -- because brokenness knows no denomination, and laughter breaks down all walls. Tammy communicates openly and practically with great energy, humor, warmth and grace. She considers sharing the promise of complete freedom through a healthy relationship with Christ as one of her great privileges in life.

"What a blessed night at the First Baptist Church of Rogers, Arkansas! I have never laughed so hard and cried at the same time. God has truly given Tammy Whitehurst a gift for reaching people with the Word of God and showing them how to laugh and enjoy God's word." -- Patsy Williams, Rogers, AR

Laughin' Out Loud & Lovin' Every Minute of It!

Get a Grip on Your Lip

We all have a mountain to climb. Sometimes what is keeping us from climbing is the words we are saying. (Ouch!) Words are powerful...take them seriously. Change your words and change your world. Faith has to move our mouth before it can move our mountains. In other words...Let's get a grip on our lip.

He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing."
