Note from Candy, Sandy Cove Women’s Ministry Coordinator…
I don’t know about you, but few things in life are more enjoyable for me than stimulating conversation between good friends! Especially when the conversation is about what God says in His Word, the Lord’s thoughts and ways, and how it all applies to everyday life! This is what I am looking forward to experiencing during this Girls’ Night Out & a Day Off with Glenna and Michael. We will be there to listen in on the humor, wisdom and music flowing from these two brilliant friends and even get to sing along with some of Michael’s familiar favorites. I can’t wait!

Through music and testimony, Tammy shares how she has learned to choose life and find hope in the promises of God after a shattering loss!
Tammy became a familiar voice on Christian Radio in 1995 with hit songs, such as “Welcome Home,” “Run To The Cross,” “My Irreplaceable” and “Rain On Me” that have brought life and hope to her many listeners, but on September 11th, 2001 her songs ceased for a time. Tammy stepped away from the spotlight to heal after the tragic death of her husband and childhood sweetheart while on a missions trip. That day would change the world forever. That day changed Tammy forever.
One year later she returned as a featured speaker and performer at the Extraordinary Women’s Conference and was also asked to share the Women of Faith platform for four years with her friends Sheila Walsh, Patsy Clairmont, Carol Kent, Kathy Troccoli, Anita Renfroe and Luci Swindoll. During that time Tammy also became a featured speaker, singer and author for The Revolve Tour for teen girls for two years. Her personal story of tragedy, restoration, healing and hope crossed over generational lines and her music inspired all ages, bringing strength and renewed joy.
You may have read Tammy’s story featured on the covers of “Today’s Christian Woman,” “Charisma,” and LifeWay’s “HomeLife” Magazines, or heard her on Focus on the Family, 700 Club, TBN, Daystar & Life Today TV. Or perhaps you even heard Max Lucado, Charles Stanley or Joel Osteen refer to Tammy’s amazing testimony of God’s faithfulness in a hopeless situation, during one of their sermons.
Tammy’s ministry has taken her all over the world, speaking at women’s conferences in South Africa, Australia, Singapore, Columbia, Ghana, Canada and the US. Tammy’s a gifted communicator who draws her audience close with her contagious humor and fun, energetic personality and yet the sincerity of her heart and wisdom of life experience is woven through the very words she speaks. Tammy says, “One of my greatest privileges on this journey of hope and healing is to be able to speak into someone’s life who feels hopeless and numb. I’ve been there too, and one thing I’ve learned is that we can never interpret our numbness as God’s absence in our lives.”
She has authored three books including, Learning to Breathe Again: Choosing Life and Finding Hope After a Shattering Loss (W Publishing-Women of Faith Book Selection), Beyond The Sorrow: There’s Hope in the Promises of God (J Countryman Thomas Nelson), and she co-penned the hilarious & brilliantly illustrated children’s book, The Log Family: See You at the Beach (September Day) with her late husband Trent Lenderink who sadly never got to see his work completed.
Speaker, Gari Meacham
With a lively, engaging look at the friendship between Mary and Elizabeth, Gari shows how God uses women’s love for one another to strengthen the fabric of their faith. We don’t need to be threatened but rather thrilled by God’s plan for those we walk alongside. We’ll recognize the life our encouragement breathes over weary faith travelers. And we’ll learn how to apply the 4 “Friendship Blessings” that Elizabeth bestows on Mary!
Gari shares about herself…
I love words. Spoken, unspoken, written, recited, or sung. I love the way words can change, challenge, and heal us. Mostly, I love God’s words…the Bible. His words have healed me, changed me, and sustained me. I think that’s why it’s my favorite thing to talk about. To me there’s nothing more exciting than finding something new about God I can brag on.
I love my family. My husband Bobby and I have been married for over thirty years, and my stomach still tingles when I know he’s coming home from a road trip. When you’ve been in love with someone that long you’ve lived through your share of bruises, but at the end of the day he’s the one I want to hold and huddle with. We have three fantastic kids and two insanely cute grandbabies. Each day I thank God for entrusting me with such gifts.
I adore baseball. Bobby and I have traipsed this country over 47 times moving from state to state with major league baseball in our rearview. There’s nothing like the sound of fireworks after a home-run, or the feel of gathering together with other baseball wives as we study God’s word and pray for our team.
I thrive on teaching and speaking to groups of God seekers. In any setting, these are my people. Nothing energizes me more than the look in the eyes of those who want to grow spiritually.
I call myself shabby chic because although I’m a bit banged up, I can look pretty cool if you see me from a distance. Don’t expect perfection—just an honest, authentic love for God and His people. That’s me…
