Tami Qualls: Biography
I am a 40 year old wife and mom. I worked outside the home for the majority of my two older children’s lives. They are now 19 and 17. I recently left my job to focus on my youngest son’s speech needs and to homeschool. He is 3 1/2.
Tami Qualls : Gospel story, How she came to know Christ as her Savior.
I remember sitting in youth class at the age of 12. Our teacher was talking about hell and how everyone deserves to go to hell. I had always been told how good of a girl I was growing up. It hit me that I too was going to hell. I decided to repent of my sins and accept Jesus as my Savior. That was the best decision I’ve ever made.

Last Minute Thoughts On Inspiration and Uplifting
Being a mom is extremely difficult, especially when your child is in the middle of a meltdown and you are just too fatigued to give your child and the situation your ‘best’. Those days, I just want to give up. I want to walk out the door. I want to abandon my family and live alone in a one bedroom apartment buried in a good book. (Yes, I just admitted to that.)
Yet, I am reminded that I have had days like this before. I got through those days, sometimes just holding onto the fact that I know my Savior wants me to stay put. This particular ‘bad moment’, like all the others, would eventually pass. Then we would have our wonderfully cherished memories to create … the laughing, the snuggling, the conversations.
Knowing my purpose is to glorify Him through my calling as a mother, I am able to get through those ‘bad moments’ and continue being the mom my kiddos need. Not a perfect mom, just a mom who is present and intentional.
