Tamron Hall on the People Who Influence Her Faith Life
The popular talk show host gets personal, discussing those who inspire her every day.
Hi everybody, I'm Tamron Hall, host of The Tamron Hall Show.
I am so lucky to have a wide range of people who influence me, not only my professional journey, but my personal journey and spirituality.
My mother has always made Sunday and prayer a part of our lives, so it was in me from day one, because it is such an important component that my mother wanted to instill in me.
From people...I worked about 20 years ago in Chicago, and there was a man who worked security and now all these years later, every day since I left Chicago to now, my journey, he sends me a quote, a prayer, in fact, I have my phone with me now, and he sends, every morning, he's my wake-up call.
Good thing I'm up early, but this morning he just sent me a great blessing, saying "Every new morning gives you an opportunity to make someone's day better." I thought that was so beautiful, that he tries to remind me to focus on others.
So it's a scripture, it's a prayer, it's a meditation. But that's a part of my daily journey, both of those people.

In explaining the eyes that appear mismatched, Deborah said, "It is to show the two natures of God, one eye looks directly at you in judgement, the other eye turns away in mercy."
