BIO. . .
Rarely do we hear funny and message with a meaning in the same sentence, much less used to describe the same person, but Tammy Whitehurst is anything but a typical speaker. She was a middle school teacher for 16 years before bringing her messages of hope, joy, and laughter to audiences on the stage. Her articles have been published in LifeWay's HomeLife, Christianity Today, Seek magazine, Evangel, Charm, Mature years, Peace and several other publications. People describe her as a Hoot with a capital "H" and love the realness that she shares and her ability to connect with the heart of her audiences. When asked what her favorite scripture is she will reply "Nehemiah 8:10, because the joy of the Lord is my strength!"
ABOUT. . .
As a motivational Christian speaker, I love to encourage and watch women discover JOY found in the truth of God’s Word. Whether speaking to a large crowd, small crowd, or writing an article for a magazine, I want people to realize they can have JOY in their journey when they take the hand of Jesus. I have written a devotional titled, Throw It All Down and Laugh!, and have written articles for LifeWay's HomeLife, Christianity Today, Peace Magazine by Bryan Broadcasting, Mature Years, Evangel, and other Christian publications. I would love to meet you, laugh with you, and share with you about the hope and joy that comes when we know Jesus.
Joy For The Journey is simply a wonderful way to encourage others to live an intentional, authentic Christian life that will in return bring them peace and overwhelming joy! The keys to life are all found in God’s Word…what an incredible book it is…it never grows out of date or out of style. God’s Word is always relevant. Through speaking presentations, Bible studies, musical moments, devotions, mission trips, and any other way God leads us to reach out to others, we share Jesus with the people we come in contact with on a daily basis. We use laughter as a tool to deal with the difficult times in life. I have found that when we can laugh we can get through anything!
May you be truly blessed!
What I believe. . .
I want to live my life to Glorify God! Though I am a very imperfect person, My hope is that His Light is evident in all I say and do. Having become a Christian at 25 years of age, I still am so amazed when I consider God’s love for me through the death of His Son, Christ Jesus. God guided me to be a teacher in the classroom for 16 years but after having heart surgery in my 30’s I also became a much bolder speaker for God. I have Women’s Ministry certification from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and hold to the fact that man is unable to save himself and that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the Way, the Truth, and the life..no one comes to the Father except through Him. John 14:6
