My name is Tami and I was born in Cleveland, Ohio. My mother was 18 years old and had moved to Cleveland to be with my father.
Before I turned 5 years old I had experienced sexual abuse that haunted me up until I was 25 years old. As a result of this abuse I suffered from anger that put a strain on my relationship with my husband in more than one way. It wasn’t until I spoke up about the abuse that my mind was no longer prisoner of these haunting memories. My anger subsided and my heart was able to love again.
After my mother had my younger brother she decided that staying in Cleveland was not the best thing for her and her 3 small children, so she moved back to Texas where we were raised by a wonderful man my mother met a few years later.
My life has not been perfect in many ways but who I was yesterday is a result of who I am today. As a result of giving my life to Christ, I have been able to bounce back up from past failures and tragedies. I may not be where I need to be but thank God I’m not where I used to be.
Today I am a 31 year old wife and mother about to rejoin the workforce. I do not have everything in life figured out and that is why I follow the teachings of the bible. Though others may differ, my decision to follow Christ has not failed me yet, and I have made some pretty poor choices in my life. So I have decided to start a blog to share my past and my present with the world wide web. Is this a wise or not so wise decision? Only time will tell.
