Encouragement for Today~In today's world of swirling circumstances, we need to be reminded of how much we are loved by God.

It is Time!!


Hello friends….

Just a quick note to let you know that I am taking the time I use to write these posts for something else.  I am writing two books.  But one is at the head of the list.sketchbook-1308358_640

I am not generally a proscratisnator, but I find myself coming up with any excuse possible to avoid working on the book.  After careful thought….I basically am afraid.

I am afraid people won’t like it. That I honestly don’t have the ability to write a book.  That I will pour my heart into this and it won’t matter.

There I said it……..

And that is not like me either.  When I really feel that “tug” on my heart, or that “calling” I don’t doubt it.  But I guess this is so much a part of me.  It is like my baby.

And what if someone says my baby is really ugly?

Well, everyone is entitled to their opinion.  I have respect for differences of opinion. 

But I would dare say there are others like me who feel they are to do something, to finish something, to start something….and fear is keeping them from doing that very thing. Fear is indeed opposite of faith.

So feel free to join me in this journey.  I will root for you!  And I don’t care to have a few prayers either!

What is your “something”?rose-2101475_640

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 60 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 44 years, married almost 41 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, which seem endless right now in 2020, HE is present and loves us unconditionally. Thanks for reading. ~Be Encouraged Today~

  1. I am happy for you but sad that I won’t be reading one of my favorites lady’s posts. Please stop by and comment on mine every once in a while?

    I might be doing the same thing in August for a short time. I’ve been writing my blog for five years without missing a week. Sometimes at the expense of other pressing issues. Tamara, I wish you the best and can’t wait to read your books – always knew you could be a wonderful author! ❤


    • Thanks Ellie! I will try to stop by…and I won’t be able to contain all the items rattling around in this brain, so I am sure there will be an occasional post. Thanks for your encouragement. Much love!


Thanks for stopping by! Would love to hear from you....
