R.I.P. Tammy Faye Bakker Messner

In a recent blog post about Jay Bakker’s book, Son of a Preacher Man, I had mentioned that we need to be praying for Tammy Faye. Sadly, she lost her battle with cancer the next day. I did not find out until Sunday morning and I must say that I was very sad. Her was a woman who was albeit a bit on the wild side, at least when it came to make-up, but you could not question her love for God. And her desire for others to find that same love in their own lives.

So please pray for her husband and kids as they mourn the loss of Tammy Faye. I pray that her life will be remember more for her love for God than the infamous PTL scandal.

I am a follower of Jesus, a husband to Kim, father to Hannah & Caleb, and the connections pastor at The River Church. The thoughts expressed here are my own and not The River Church's.
