Tam knew at an early age that she was supposed to help people. Some of her youngest childhood memories involve her role-playing helping “counseling” others. As she got older and navigated some incredibly difficult life choices while also surviving several types of abuse, she realized she was being prepared to share her experiences and her healing journey with others.
She began blogging in 2007 where her honest, vulnerable, and funny musings of her life quickly attracted a following. It wasn’t long until a tight-knit community was built. Tam regularly received emails from readers seeking her advice and counsel.
During this time Tam was writing her first book, And Now I Choose. She had spoken at small events, locally, but it wasn’t until And Now I Choose was released that her speaking career took off.
Churches, women’s conferences, private events, small events, Bible studies, women’s retreats have all sought Tam out to be their speaker. These opportunities have become some of Tam’s most treasured honors in her profession.
“The pains of my past lost their sting when I realized their purpose.”
Tam has found her purpose; Helping women break the chains of past regrets, hurts, shame, and fear so they too can experience freedom and life to its fullest!
To date, Tam has written three books: And Now I Choose, Choosing To Change, and a children’s book, You Matter.
Tam married her ‘supposed to be’ in 1991. She and Brent welcomed their first child, Kassidi, in 1994 and their son, Dakota, in 1996. They are a very close family, sometimes wild, always funny (mostly Kota and Tam) and each are committed to using their gifts to serve others. Tam’s trifecta of Heaven on Earth includes the beach, coffee, and Oreos. It’s just that simple.
