Author Biography

Growing up in the beautiful, lush mountains of West Virginia, Tammy Jordan has always had a deep love for nature. At the age of five she dreamed of owning a farm, and that desire only grew with time. Many years later, Tammy stepped out by faith and went full time with her company Fruits of Labor, Inc. , which marries agriculture production with culinary arts. Now celebrating ten years in business, the company is beginning to branch out into a retreat style ministry. Tammy's desire to become more fruitful for God has become her priority in life.

Author Tammy Jordan has written a truly inspiring book in "The Door to Fruitfulness". It is not long, just under eighty pages, but it gives a message that many readers will love and can apply in their own lives. The author begins by telling the reader to turn to God for salvation, but what she writes in the next chapters is truly unique. In giving God our first fruits, we must be willing to allow God to prune from our lives what we don't need just as the tender of an arbor prunes back unnecessary branches from a fruitful vine. If we don't understand God's ways or what has been eliminated from our lives, we must trust His wisdom. If we feel depleted, needing water and nutrients like a vine, we must understand that God sees the bigger picture and knows just how our talents and the gifts of our time are best used.

"The Door to Fruitfulness" is a unique and well-written book in an age where religious self-help books abound. It is for the Christian believer to read and follow. Tammy Jordan guides the readers into how they can accept God's plans, not their own, and then giving their talents, their time and their compassion even for those who have hurt them, so that we all can be used as God sees fit. "The Door to Fruitfulness" is beautifully illustrated and at the end of each chapter there is a section for the reader to write down their own "First Fruit Thoughts". Christian readers everywhere will want to read and also own this delightful book.
