Meet Tami

July 6, 2022

My name is Tami. In my corner of this kingdom on earth, I am a wife to Jim, my sweetheart of 37 years, a mom to 4, and am happy to be called grams by my lovely growing brood of grandkids.

I believe we all have a story and I purpose to embrace mine by learning to love and accept my own history and stay determined to look to the future with hope, grace, and faith. As a counselor, I help others reconcile their journey in a way that connects mind, body, and spirit with our true calling as those created for a purpose in God’s overall plan of redemption for mankind.

In the coming months, I will continue to share parts of my story inviting us all to explore the many ways we can more deeply understand the value of the lessons we’ve learned in life.  I hope we will be brave enough to address those areas where we may have discounted our unique stories and undermined how we impact those around us. Isn’t it amazing when we can relate,  see (and understand) more about our own journey in life through the lens of another one’s experience?  I hope you will come along with Erika and me as we are learning to thrive in the beauty and celebration of this abundant life we are living.  

I hope you will join me as we learn to embrace each other and share our stories together.



Hello Tami and erika. I am so thankful to the Lord for inspiring you both to start this blog. Today I read each article you’ve both written, and now my cup is full. Not only do I appreciate the quality of the writing, as an aviD reader, but the Content speaks right to the hearT; of gods heart to our own. I think that the Christmas.“To do’s for my heart and soul holiday list” should become a CHRISTMAS tradition for your blog! What better tradition than “being in the moment” with the coming king?! It would be fun to reAd others’ contributions to that list in future years. Regarding the story of Mary and Martha… I wonder what Jesus would have said if Mary told Jesus upon entering her house, “I’m sorry, Lord, nothing is prepared! I just didn’t want to miss this moment of listening to you and sitting at your feet. He may have said in reply, “great is your faith, my daughter! come and sit at my feet now and I’ll make dinner after!” Which one of us wouldN’T love that! 😉
I can’t wait to hear more stories from the master, from your lives too, and to ponder my own, as you suggested. Thanks for uplifting me today. ❤️

Chrissie, I love the idea of making the “heart-to-do list” during Advent a tradition for the Sown blog and for others to contribute. We will remember this.
I also wonder what would have been on the menu if Jesus had prepared the meal? Probably something so yummy and a blessing to them all. Just like he wants to continue to do for us today, as we focus on Him in our time of need.

Thank you for your sweet words! Tami
