Mel and Mel…

Tonight I had the privilege of having two of my very special students over to my house.  I had Melitas (the matriarch of my workshops) at age 92, and Melanie (the baby of my workshops) at age 36.  I can’t say enough how very impressed I am by these two wonderful women.  Each day I am honored and blessed by the friendships and love I receive from all of my students. 

I am so thankful that 26 months ago I discovered this beautiful area, thanks to my dear friend Andrea.  And even more thankful that I decided to take a chance 19 months ago and move to the desert not knowing one single person.  The friendships I have made through my classes is remarkeable… Melanie and Melitas are two wonderful examples of why I am so thankful to be here!  If you get the chance to be in a workshop with these two, you will know what I am talking about!

"Because of Tammy I have found confidence in my writing and feel blessed to be honored in such a way. I have found my voice. I have found freedom! I recommend anyone for whatever reason to expand their life and sign up for her writing workshops or classes. You'll be amazed at how good you are and how everyone has a story worth telling. Sign up and set your voice free!"
