When we turn our eyes upon Jesus we can get through anything the world throws at us. This talk ends with a salvation message. Tammy shares with women about being in the pits and being rescued by Jesus. It digs deep into the heart of every woman who wants to run this race with endurance. This talk is excellent when speaking more than once at a retreat or conference.


Teachers were called to do what they do. They inspire, encourage, and teach our leaders of tomorrow. This talk is designed to speak to the heart of the school teacher from elementary through high school. As a former teacher in the classroom, Tammy understands the ups and downs of being an educator. Your staff will be laughing one minute and wiping a tear the next. They will leave ready to go back to the classroom like never before!


There are very few things that are certain in life. Difficult people and difficult times seems to be two of those that we cannot escape. Being in the midst of difficulty seems to make everything so much harder for all involved. Whether it is family, friends, co-workers, or just life in general, this talk is designed to help women get along better with those who rub them the wrong way and to find the right way to deal with the difficulties that come into our lives. Yes, we can have unconditional joy even in the midst of difficult times.


We all have mountains 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.


Ever wonder why some people attract friends like a magnet and others don’t? What does God have to say about friends and close relationships? We will talk about the keys to meaningful relationships with other women and laugh at how we are getting through this journey together. God provides us with friends not to see through us, but to see us through. We are all part of a sisterhood together. Let’s celebrate it! This is the perfect keynote talk or a first talk to be used at a retreat if there are multiple sessions.


We gotta laugh to live! Women are like overcooked brisket…..tough. As women we are wives, mothers, and daughters. Being a woman is not all red hots and roses. This talk is about the ups and downs of being a female at all ages and stages. It is filled with funny and serious points. Regardless of the dish life is serving up, we can throw our hands up in the air and take a laughter break when the joy of the Lord is our strength.

Joy is a part of life we can all experience. It is a gift from the Lord! Nehemiah 8:10 tells us “The JOY of the Lord is our strength.” In life trials do come. They are part of our journey, but when we give our worries and our most difficult pain to the Lord, He will restore our joy. When we have fallen to our knees, we have to make sure we are holding our head up! We were made for Him and by Him. Our purpose is to glorify God in all that we do and life’s journey becomes more clear as we live our lives determined to finish strong.
