"Everybody has stuff!" That's right. We all go through the ups and downs of life and sometimes the "downs" overshadow the "ups." Whether you have been through the painful divorce of your parents or your own, lived through abuse or are still living it, or generally feel like you don't matter, there is hope out of the ashes.

"Chained No More," a faith-based radio show is a place where people genuinely care about and understand what you are living. You will be given quality resources to help you rise from the ashes of hurtful situations. We will not "beat you over the head with a Bible," but will combine faith and practical tools to help you move forward toward a much healthier and happier future.

Robyn has written "Chained No More...A Journey of Healing for the Adult Children of Divorce/Childhood Brokenness." The first version is a small group curriculum with a Leader Guide and Participant Book. The second version, released in 2014, is the self-discovery version, for individual study.

As an author, mentor, singer/songwriter, radio host, and speaker, her passion is to help people define themselves by who God says they are and not what anyone or anything has ever told them. Robyn has a huge heart for children of all ages and as a camp mom, she heard the pain of the campers. That moved her to write "Chained No More," so the adult children of divorce could find healing for the pain they brought into their adulthood.

Robyn and her husband of over 40 years, Ivan, reside in Oregon. They have two grown kids, a son-in-law and a grand dog, Braxton. Contact Robyn at and visit her website at

Tam Hodge - Tam's Story: Dark Beginnings to Bright Hope 04-11-17


Tam Hodge never thought she would write a book about her life, but ten years ago, she was hit, out of the blue, with a conviction to share her story.  Sadly, her story isn't much unlike many thousands in our world today; child abuse, an eating disorder, promiscuity, homelessness, abortion, and drugs.  Tam will be our guest and tell her compelling story on Chained No More Talk Radio on April 11th on a show entitled: "Tam's Story: Dark Beginnings to Bright Hope."

Tam will tell how she moved beyond her past and forged through the pain of uncovering bad memories, forgiving both her abusers and herself, while discovering a deeper forgiveness that changed her on a "soul level."

Today, Tam travels, speaks about her journey, and shares how confession and forgiveness can bring the freedom your soul may be longing for.  She speaks straight from her heart with compassion and understanding.  You will be blessed and moved by her.

She and her husband, Brent, are deeply involved with "Save the Storks", an exciting ministry to help women contemplating abortion, to find other alternatives without shame and judgment, but with assistance and love from people like the Hodges.

Tam and Brent now live in Franklin, Tennessee, but will be moving soon to Southern California with their two grown children, Dakota and Kassidi.  They will continue their ministry there.
