    Tam, thank you so much for sharing your story! What an amazing God who loves us!! But I’m wondering – was your husband the friend who invited you to church? Or are they two separate people?

    God is good. I’m sorry you had to go through all that – but so thrilled that you are using your experience and knowledge of God’s grace and mercy to touch others – you are a blessing.

    Tam, that was a great story with a beautiful ending! It encourages me to keep praying for and reaching out to my friend. Would you pray for her? Her name is Ashley.

    This isn’t in the book!? It should be! Wow! I am sure it wasn’t easy writing this. It is amazing how the Lord leads and prepares us to meet Him.

    I didn’t think I would cry, but I did. Tam – now I understand and respect you even more now. Thank you for being brave enough to share this amazing story. You have OVERCOME!

    I’m sitting here crying even though I’ve known of this story for years. I just now realized your pain. I’m sorry for not being there and being too young to understand.

    You have already climbed so very large mountains, and the beautiful Grace and mercy that HE has showered on you is breath taking…I love how you in turn give it to others. After sitting today and reading through all of them again…back to back…I just had to thank God for sparing you, for brushing you off, and for showing you off on HIS arm…”this is my Princess, isn’t she beautiful! You all best take notice..this is what I can do…and so much more…” Love you.
    (it took me all day to come up with this left me speechless and before our King Daddy…priceless!)

    (oh hi Darla…love the name girl!! it so rocks!)

  16. October 30, 2008 3:27 pm

    lil sis – you were only, 7 or 8 at the time. there was no way for you to know and nothing you could have done. but it is clear, that God had His hand on me from day one. He knew i would be rescued – i just had to finish the journey first. i love you sweetie!

    darla – sigh – that comment…wow. now youve gone and left ME speechless. God is in the business of rescuing! rescuing everyone. I wish everyone wanted to be saved… thank you Princess. i love you.

    Our Father must BEAM with love and pride for you dear one!!!

  18. October 30, 2008 8:34 pm

    you are further proof that my heart belongs on the west coast.

  19. October 30, 2008 8:51 pm

    I’m also in tears. No words.

    And on the shallow side…so well written!

  20. October 30, 2008 10:06 pm

    Tam – your story rocks my world. I can’t believe I know you. Does that sound weird?? Your story sounds like one of those you hear on ‘the saving hour’ on the radio, and you think, “Wow. A human being actually went through that.” But … I know you, Tammy Jo! At least a little. I am so GLAD to know you! So BLESSED to know you! This wasn’t part 3 of 3, was it? Oh, and we need a few prequels and sequels, prologues and epilogues while you’re at it. 😉 Just me being a bit selfish. But seriously, I would love to hear your whole story. You are a fantastic writer as well … Thank you so much for sharing, Tam. You are loved, beautiful lady. 😀

    Tam… I just read the comment about whether or not this is in your book. I think the point is that you have more than one story to tell ~ more than one book in you. This process can be your stepping stone when you’re ready… an outline of sorts. The potential in you is unquantifiable.

  22. October 31, 2008 3:30 am

    Speechless is what I am.

    You made it, Tam!

    PS: You write very well.

  23. October 31, 2008 7:05 am

    Your powerful story (stories) change people.

    Thank you for inspiring me. Yes, you did. You helped. A lot. More than you know.

    Love you.
