About the Poet
My name is Tammy Straube and I am an avid christian poetry writer that has been writing for quite sometime. The poetry that I write is only to 'glorify' God. I write from the heart and I do not
necessarily have one particular style in mind. Previously, my poetry was published on www.christianpoetry.org by crossway publications.
It is with great sadness that I tell you that they have closed that website down due to the new owner not being able to keep up with the
demand of the website. I was fortunate enough to have met some wonderful christian poet's from all around the world there and fortunately enough I am still able to keep in contact with some of them. I also look forward to meeting new christian poet's here and reading their poetry that they write. I hope to be an inspiration to other's as well, with what I write.

Humbleness is not what our culture craves.
You deserve it – grab all you can –
That’s what you hear from the “Susans and Daves.”
Success is what makes you a man.

Selfish is the opposite of humble-
Just thinking of me, me, me!
If I’m not first, my feelings just crumble.
Think of others first is the key.

Being humble frees from the tyranny
of self as God helps us to grow.
Putting self first drenches humility.
It is God’s Grace we need to know.
