“Tammy is writing about a subject that is near and dear to my heart. I’m the product of a permanent separation, and I can proudly say I got to experience, as a child, what two adults behave like when they realize their differences don’t matter when they still have a family that needs parenting. Tammy is doing a service to all of us…especially co-parents that need to know there is hope for their children.”

—Joey Elwood, President of Gotee/Mono vs Stereo Records


“Tammy came to speak to the students at Hope International University’s weekly chapel service. Our student body expected a predictable, uplifting Christian message– the kind that so many speakers had presented to our faith-based, “emerging-adult” audience. Tammy virtually turned the tables on their expectations as she redefined the term “Uplifting Christian Message.” Students found a role-model in Tammy’s testimony; she gave them courage to begin the healing journey from past scars by reaching out to the caring, Christian community that surrounds them. There were cheers and tears as Tammy concluded her message; long lines of students waited to share their stories and their personal thanks for speaking directly to them and for showing them what a journey from trauma to triumph looks like when you surrender your life to God. It was a chapel service that none of us will ever forget.”
