A few days ago I posted the fact that several local St. Clair Publications authors were having September book signings, but was unsure as to when Tammy’s was. Then I posted the details of mine on the 3rd, the day following Labor Day.
Well, it turns out that Tammy’s is at the same time as mine! Tammy’s moving true story, A Teacher’s Prayer, has touched and inspired many young people. It relates the crushing story of her youth after the death of her father, including abuse by those who should have been steering her in the right direction. She ended up in a children’s home. Then it tells of how one of her teachers, unbeknownst to her, never gave up on her, and prayed for her well-being for years. Consequently, she was able to rise above her abusive past and begin a life of positive affirmation, a loving marriage and obtain a college degree and give birth to two fine children.
Now she is telling her story in schools, women’s groups, children’s homes and churches. She has been featured in a number of newspapers and on television. She has also developed and published a supplemental guide and leader’s edition for small groups to study her book.
Next Tuesday, September 3, she will be at a mid-day women’s luncheon at First Presbyterian Church in Tullahoma, Tennessee, telling her story and signing books
