Update from Tommy Mann Ministries



Tommy Mann Ministries was begun in 2009 with the release of my first book All the Law. Writing has always been about ministry to me; it is a way to spread the message of Jesus. I never wanted to make money off of writing, so I found a way to give back everything that comes in.

Now, a few years and a few books later, I wanted to give an update on what the ministry has been doing. One of my biggest passions has been fighting for the unborn, but it does no good to convince a woman to keep her baby if we do not help her keep her baby. Because of this, a top priority of this ministry has been supporting crisis pregnancy centers. We routinely supply diapers, wipes, baby food, clothes, monetary donations, and other items to pregnancy centers.

Aside from pregnancy centers the next biggest ministry has been behind bars. TMM supports Angel Tree Ministries, which provides Christmas gifts for the children of incarcerated inmates. Prisoners fill out request forms for their children, and Angel Tree makes it happen. We sponsor several children each year.

We also minister in the prisons by supplying materials to be used either by chaplains or for inmate-led Bible studies. Every blog and devotion from the website is sent out; we also provide Bibles, Bible study books, and other materials.

We also have supported organizations like St. Jude Children’s Hospital, The March of Dimes, and other needs as they have come along.

Through the Rachel Dowd Book Sponsorship Program, we provide free copies of Asleep in Heaven’s Nursery to people who have recently lost small children.

Finally, I have stayed true to the promise I made to Philippi’s deacon board when they voted to approve this new ministry: one dollar from every book sold has been donated to Philippi’s building fund.

When What Now? is released, it will be another chance to do more.

This is not a bragging blog; none of this would be possible without the donations, customers, and supporters of this ministry. Your giving has allowed this ministry to be a part of great things, and I just wanted to let you know what we have been doing.

Thank you for your support!
