Today we’d like to introduce you to Tammy Dozier.
Hi Tammy, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
I am originally a Kansas City native residing in the Dallas, TX area since 1996.
I met and married my amazing husband of retired Army SFC Matthew Dozier in 2003 and my life changed for the better.
Since 2005 I have been involved in women’s ministry and have discovered it is my life purpose.
Created For Destiny Ministry is the ministry I founded to empower women.
In 2006 I became a licensed minister and shortly after in 2011 I became an ordained pastor serving as an associate at the Koinonia Christian church in Arlington, TX
I am a retired civilian employee from the City of Irving, TX Police Department.
In October 2021 I released the first installment of my memoir entitled Death of a Bag Lady which is also a well-attended monologue. This memoir takes its readers on an exciting and emotional journey through fatherlessness, traumas, childhood sexual abuse, emotional wellness, happiness, self-abuse, healing, forgiveness, and the realization of the presence of Christ throughout it all.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I believe everything in my life has been predestined. Life is made up of peaks and valleys each of our terrains are traveled differently.
I will say the Lord has never left me!
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I’ve been called a “serial woman pusher.” Although I am an ordained pastor, author, conference host, workshop facilitator, and keynote speaker my heart is all for anything women empowerment!
Women have often had to play many roles and wear several hats in life. This at times has caused them to lay aside their own personal goals and purpose pursuit.
This is where I come in as their spiritual midwife, mentor, and empowerment coach.
What were you like growing up?
Oh wow … growing up I was the protector of my friends. Since my violation started at such a young age, I wanted to protect others around me. I’ve always rooted for the underdog because I never felt that I fit in. I always saw myself in charge of “something “ As a young girl I would play dress up and pretend I was speaker, preacher, or social worker.
