Tammee’s Bio

I am a forty-five-year-old woman from Orange, Texas. I have two adult children and one gorgeous grandchild. I come from a large family with brothers, aunts, uncles and cousins living all around the world.

I went to Lamar University, which I was a reporter for the university paper, for a brief time majoring in Broadcast Journalism. I left Lamar before I received my bachelor degree to pursue a career in the Navy, where I met my awesome husband of over twenty-six years. We went through Aviation Ordnance training together. Afterwards, I stayed at home with my son and daughter until my daughter was five years old.

I also have Type II Diabetes and Multiple Sclerosis (MS). I was diagnosed with Diabetes when I was thirty-three years old and with Multiple Sclerosis three years later. My blog isn’t centered on either disease; rather, my focus is on God. However, challenges I face regarding these conditions may be mentioned from time to time.

I have worked many different jobs before I became disabled with Multiple Sclerosis. The majority of the jobs were of an office nature. For example, I was once a receptionist, Project Coordinator, traced lost packages for a delivery company and was an Abstractor for a title company. I have also been a veterinary technician, which I loved! I love animals, preferably cats.

Of course, I can’t talk about animals without mentioning Axel, my dog and Oliver, my cat. Axel is just over a year old and Oliver is over thirteen years old. Both of them are rescue animals.

I was originally saved in 1987 listening to a Christian Rock band at a Baptist church in Bridge City, Texas. However, I didn’t continue to walk with God as I should. I read my bible every morning, sang the book of Psalms to Him every morning, but I lacked the encouragement of other Christians and had soon backslid. I was separated from God until 1998, when I rededicated my life.

I cannot say that I didn’t step away from God again. I did. Looking back, I had never had my gaze fixed fully on God. That is why it was so easy for me to be tempted away. However, God is faithful and patient. Even though I walked away, He welcomed me back with open arms.

I cannot say I am a perfect Christian. After all, there is no such thing. I have made many mistakes and continue to do so. I have many personality flaws that God is still dealing with. Like every Christian, I am a work still in progress.

I am not here to bash any religious beliefs. Throughout my life I have attended many different denominations within the circle of Christianity. I simply desire to share my experiences with God. I know He is real. I know His love and guidance are real. I want to be real too. As I stay connected, I hope you will be encouraged to do so as well. Clearly, the closer I get to God, the more evident it becomes that there is nothing I can be tempted with that is better than the promises of God.
