Be encouraged as you discover how you can have the All Mighty God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit in your corner of the ring fighting with you. Also, learn how Sorg fought a living Samurai at the Imperial Palace in Japan and lived to tell about it. With forty years of experience practicing, competing, and coaching Judo, Sorg found respite in Jesus Christ, who helped her through the emotional turmoil of defeat and emboldened her to be a witness for Him. Just missing the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Team as the number-one athlete in her weight division, she became the first alternate for the U.S. team. In Jesus - Our Great Samurai, Sorg shares how, through Judo, Jesus changed the course of her life forever. While Tammy trained for the 1996 Olympics, she lost at the Olympic Trials again, but worse things were in store for her as she left judo competition and began studying for her Master's Degree in Sports Management. In her first Semester, Tammy learned she had a devastating disease called Multiple Sclerosis (M.S.). She has learned to trust in Jesus, her Great Samurai, to get her through the daily physical, emotional and spiritual battles. Jesus gives her the strength she needs every day to put on the Armor of God and pick up His Sword and fight. Sorg has worked with at-risk youth for 10 years, and she also worked as Adjunct Faculty for Indiana Wesleyan University for 10 years. She has taught in Elementary through High School. She has also worked as a Children's Pastor and currently volunteers as a Teen Bible Quizzing Coach. Tammy enjoys spending time with her wonderful husband, two teenage kids, and her niece. They enjoy video gaming, puzzles, swimming, baking/cooking, and studying scripture together.
