More Than Just Getting By
From soothing acoustics to full band, There's a little something here for everyone in the family. For better of worse, it's about hanging in there and celebrating everything life brings. A portion of all proceeds go to support autism awareness.
Thoughts and Thanks:
I guess you could say this collage of songs is a family portrait, painted with words and music. It’s who and what I believe in, how I get through the hard days, and where I find my joy. I hope as you listen, you’ll hear things we have in common and be able to paint a portrait of your own.
My thanks to everyone who had a part in creating this project. To the writers, musicians, and vocalists; you picked & mixed the paint. To the producer and engineers; you guided the strokes on the canvas. To the REAL artists from Rachel Motta’s Art Class at The King’s Daughters’ School, the photographer, and the graphic designer; you helped us see the music, gave it a beautiful frame, and hung it on the wall. Kenneth Johnson, Jr., a special thanks to you for your pencil portrait. It was an honor to work with all of you.
To God, my family, and friends, who’s love continues to bless me. I leave you this quote: “So much has been given to me. I don’t have time to ponder what I’ve been denied.” Helen Keller

Know The Hope:
"Sometimes what we think will be our greatest trials turn out to be our biggest blessings. I asked God for patience and flexibility. He gave me Allison and Morgan...”
If children came with an owner’s manual, we’d all feel a lot more confident in the countless decisions that have to be made regarding their health and their future. Instead we learn together, by trial and error, wrapped in love.
As parents of children with special needs, the goals may change, but the dreams are the same. We want our children to live a happy and fulfilled life, blossoming into everything God intended them to be.
Tammy brings you encouraging messages of hope and inspiration through her music and personal stories. A true country songbird, Tammy’s songs are about the importance of friends, the love of family, and God’s eternal goodness.
The purpose of Know The Hope Ministries is to support and strengthen families by helping listeners maintain focus on the important things in life. She integrates autism awareness into her program to help families like her own adapt to the everyday challenges of raising children with special needs, and give guidance to faith communities on how to include families of children with disabilities.
“I have been in that place of isolation and hopelessness. I know what it’s like to be consumed with fear and doubt. My heart is for families who are still there. I hope, through sharing what I’ve learned in my family’s journey, that we can all get to a better place.”
