"When my heart is overwhelmed;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I."
Psalm 61:2

Welcome to Footprints of Inspiration!

I'm Tammy and I started my blogging journey by way of a chronic illness.  You see, I've spent over 8 years living with chronic migraines.  Most days it took everything I had to just "put one foot in front of the other."  

In the midst of this struggle, my relationship with Jesus grew stronger, and I've learned more in this short period of time in my life than I've learned in all my years combined.  

Such as:

  • I am not in control and it's so incredibly freeing to know that I don't have to worry about what life throws at us.
  • I can trust God with everything in my life.
  • It is possible to have both pain and peace at the same time.
  • I am far more capable than I ever thought possible.
  • I've been blessed to be a blessing. God doesn't want me to keep these things to myself, but rather to  encourage others no matter what's going on in their lives. 

I'm ecstatic to say that after years of suffering from this debilitating illness, I found a doctor who listened and was willing to "think outside the box."  After a hysterectomy, I'm living my life again!  The migraines aren't gone, but I have definitely gotten my life back and am so very grateful.

You don't need to have a chronic illness to hang out with me. We all live in this difficult world and have to make a choice each and every day to focus on what we have to be thankful for rather than all the challenges we face.

Oh don't get me wrong . . .it's not easy. I'm a work in progress, but I know that together we can help each other through the difficult times, come out stronger for it, and even learn to thank God for every teaching moment we've been through.

Because of my journey and the many struggles I've encountered, I'm living my life more intentionally, and my passion is to help you do the same thing by living a Christ-centered life and going after your God given dreams.

Before my struggles, I didn't know how to do this. I was too busy raising kids and just checking off the boxes to get to the end of the day where I poured myself into bed and thought, "I did nothing today that got me closer to my dreams. Guess I'll try again tomorrow." Sound familiar?

Now I know how to take my dreams and turn them into goals! And even better . . .I'm actually accomplishing those goals for the first time in my life! I told myself that when I started figuring out how to make these changes, I would help others, like you, do the same thing.

We have several resources at Footprints of Inspiration to help you in your journey, in fact, a few of our reader favorites can be found below. 

So grab your favorite beverage, (fun fact: mine is chai) a comfy chair, and spend some time with me. Together we can learn to live a life that we can be proud of!

"In this world you will have trouble. But take heart because I have overcome the world." John 16:33 NIV
