Give back with Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company

In this day and age, it seems that we get more bad news than good. Turn on the news, or scroll through your favorite social media site, and you’ll see post after post about how everybody hates everybody else – it seems like we live in a dark and gloomy time. Now more than ever, we’ve got to look outside ourselves and see the need …

We’re on a Mission

Tammy Hiveley - June 4, 2015

Years ago I was told,  “You’d make a good missionary”. I laughed out loud in awkward bewilderment.. HA! ME? then quickly dismissed the ‘absurd’ notion of my seemly far-off-distant future. The 25 years since then have quickly past, yet the details of that exact moment has remained with me to this day. Tucked away. There must be a reason. Why do I feel this tug? Was it a whisper from God? It had …

What I Wore To Sparkle

Tammy Hiveley - October 8, 2014

Last weekend I attended a Christian Women’s Conference called Sparkle.  Well that is, after we so gracefully endured a flat tire, lost keys and a ripped top… we finally made it! Sparkle was full of inspiring and thought provoking sessions. Keeping my mind and spirit alive, which is always extremely emotional for me. But I do love emotions. I actually enjoy crying, laughing, yelling, etc. Life would …
