St. Clair Publications author, Tammy M. Brown, interviewed on Birmingham TV

It is so exciting when one of our authors is honored by a TV news appearance. This couldn’t have happened to a nicer person. Tammy Mentzer Brown’s book, A Teacher’s Prayer,  is already a great seller. Yesterday evening she was Interviewed on Birmingham’s FOX6 News. Her story is one which reminds us that even in the worst of circumstances, the care and prayers of others can make a huge difference in our lives. Since her school days when she was in the Presbyterian Children’s Home in Alabama, and had been the victim of repeated abuses, one of her teachers had been praying for her and she didn’t even realize it. After thirty years they were joyfully reunited. Thanksgiving makes us think of being thankful for the positive events in our lives. Share this one with Tammy.

Here is a link to her story as shared by the FOX News team: http://www.myfoxal.com/category/240204/video-landing-page?autoStart=true&topVideoCatNo=default&clipId=7954797
