Tammy Whitehurst is a speaker, writer, and author from Longview, Texas. She speaks at women’s gatherings all over the country, but especially loves talking to “Southern women” because that’s who she is, too! With an abundance of humor, she relates directly to the kinds of challenges most women are facing with their jobs, husbands, children, parents and aging issues! She stands for “doing the right thing” as a Christian even when we might not want to, because “once your children needed a Mama, now they need an example!” She says “don’t throw in the towel, use it to wipe your brow and keep going” and “give in and give up OR, give it all you’ve got” also, “instead of those who have done us wrong, let’s try to get even with those who have done us right”! Addressing age and health issues, she says “hold a torch instead of a cane, and let’s get back to work”.. As for living a joyful Christian life ALL our lives, she admonishes “let’s don’t age gracefully…let’s age boldy, and courageously, sliding in to ‘home’ with a strong finish!”.
